Re: “Pennisi Tree-Trimmer: 'I Did The Job I Was Hired To Do'

Although Pennisi is guilty of punishable criminal and civil crimes, I think Coastal Tree Service should have refused to denude a potentially unstable hillslope, knowing, as they should, that de-vegetation destabilizes hillsides. They violated a standard of care in the business and share a small, albeit a very small, share of the liability, in my opinion.

Re: “Roads and Redwoods

Consider that Arkley's Marina Center anticipates 16,000 additional daily vehicle trips outside the Marina Center on weekdays. Neither the Marina Center DEIR nor the Caltrans RG DEIR considers the combined effects of truck and other vehicle traffic on Eureka. Here's why it matters, from Caltrans' own reports: "Traffic congestion on US 101 in Eureka's commercial and retail areas due to heavy overlapping uses for trucking, through traffic, and local traffic is a significant constraint on economic development." "The county's relative geographic isolation has spared it from some of the sprawl and growth pressures that have impacted many of California's coastal communities, lending the area a quality of life cherished by residents." Cambridge Systematics, 2003 a study contracted by Caltrans

Re: “Roads and Redwoods

Cypress Grove's Lambchopper and Midnight Moon cheeses are made in Holland, and the company is doing fine. Sunvalley, which has exploited illegal aliens to produce poisoned flowers, is also doing fine. Kokatak, the maker of plastic clothing, some of it from China, is doing fine. O&M has been doing fine since 1948, with all its real estate dealings. Amulet left because of near-retirement, and backhoe parts weighing over 100,000 lbs requiring a rail spur. Yakima fled to Mexican cheap labor. And we are supposed to risk our Park and suffer all the consequences of big trucks running through our county to help a very few companies who are doing fine to earn a few more dollars and maybe hire one or two employees? Randy Gans thinks we are stupid enough to believe that Crescent City Home Depot and WalMart are not served by STAA from 101 from the north (they still want access connecting 101 to I-5 over 199), or that Arkley's ads on KINS advocating for STAA trucks to service the Marina Center's Home Depot are not the same as Security National. Have these successful business people so little appreciation for our quality of life they would sacrifice it, and us, for so little? Neither STAA trucks, nor the Marina Center, produce anything, except mortgages and consumption. A better way to move goods is by a marine highway home-ported in Eureka, a veritable jobs factory, with collars of all colors.

Re: “Gallegos Loses

The court's decision means that a corporation, or any entity, has the right to lie in pursuit of a government permit, with immunity from prosecution by a DA.

Some will celebrate because Gallegos lost, when really it is the public that loses.
