Re: “CR Not Involved in New Negotiations for Jefferson School Site

Think about it...College of the Redwoods has a lot more money to spend plus a Need to house classes 'someplace'. City of Eureka would have to rob money from low income folks wanting to purchase their first home to buy Jefferson for a Maybe project with Maybe funding to retrofit the building. Get real. We finally have a city council of Realists who know how to Add $0+$0= $0

Re: “KGO-TV Wraps Richardson Grove

We need to poke around Alameda's business and start throwing some weight into their issues...see how they like it. One thing to admire the ambiance and come to Humboldt for camping-quite another to own a business or live here.

Re: “A Lesson for Progressives

Everyone has some sort of bias, perhaps that is what made it possible for Reporta to type up his piece and send it to the printer without fact checking...

Jeff in my opinion didnt win the primary not because he was unpopular or off message, it was because voters could gauge they had to vote for someone who could (finally) beat Bonnie. Jeff's 'jokes' about talking too much just drove the point home. If you want to minimize damage talk about something jazzier, sexier, more about what you can do-what you have done (Jeff started to at the end, but too late).

In Virginia we see someone with more experience and clout than Bonnie had when she first took office. The possibilities are endless. Virginia gave a sense that it was ok to hope for something better and in the right climate Greatness was possible. We also discarded the 100% financing of the EPD model, the unwillingness to even look at it, the scare tactics when we knew for a fact old town police officers had been on patrol way before all their raises.

Voters are smarter than we're given credit for, Progs openly stating we're Not that Smart was a very bad message-don't make that mistake again.

What part of Middle of the Road don't you understand? We have many more things in common than we differ-we all want a quality of life, jobs, great environment, decent shopping choices with good prices not cheap crap, safe neighborhoods that we are willing to work for, participate in and share.

Most if not all of us were horrified about how much money goes into campaigns but on the up side this community digs deep and it was good for the economy hopefully.

John, about blaming one another for how much campaigns cost you subliminally mention Measure T then on the flip side you prove the necessity for campaign spending; what were the stats? Marshall had less than 5% Zandra had about twice that with her 1000% more experience in government.

Its time to sit back and reflect for sure, I think its gonna turn out ok.

Re: “Big Sneaky Burl Elephant

Its like they're blind and deaf at the LA Times. Ive been misquoted by one of their writers and it pissed me off enough to write a letter to the editor (that was never published)... no foul language or anything! If they are gonna use your name on a quote at least they could print what you watched them write on the yellow pad while your lips were moving.
