Re: “Huffman Calls Congressional Oath to God "Unconstitutional," "Preposterous"

It's none of anyone's business what other people's religious preferences are! This country was founded on religious freedom for ALL, not just some. I care about the character and actions of elected officials - and people in general. This is NOT and is not supposed to be a Christian country or government. That is the point of religious freedom and tolerance for ALL.

Re: “'Ground Zero:' Coastal Commission Approves Safety Corridor Project, Worries Sea Level Rise May Leave it Under Water

Thank you for your clear and comprehensive article on the woefully inadequate plan for 101. We are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic with blinders on.

Re: “Eureka Staff Repeatedly Provided Council, Public Inaccurate Information About Marketing Contract Process

Humboldt Made - What about violating the rules of the submission process? Maybe outsiders are what is needed to break the deadly combination of good ole boys network and the outlaw mentality that is so pervasive and sickening.

Re: “Charmaine Lawson Vows to Keep Fighting for Son, Plans to Attend Tomorrow's Vigil

I live in Eureka and have come to know and love Mrs. Lawson for her compassion, love of her family and generous heart. She comes back here to not only fight for justice for her murdered son, but also to lovingly give to those in need. She is welcome in my community and home any time.

Re: “Dozens Gather to Remember Josiah Lawson at Beach Vigil

As a member of the Justice for Josiah Committee and Eureka community & NAACP member, I want to thank the North Coast Journal for the sensitive article and beautiful pictures of the September 15, 2018 monthly vigil for David Josiah (DJ) Lawson, an HSU student who was viciously murdered at an off campus party on April 15, 2017. His mother, Charmaine Michelle Lawson and his family, friends and her supporters will continue to hold these monthly vigils in the community until his murderer is brought to justice. Moreover, Ms. Lawson, works tirelessly with the California Faculty Association and other individuals and groups to urge the Chancellor ans Board of Trustees of the California State University system to take responsibility and make necessary changes to the policies and procedures for the recruitment, retention and education of students, particularly students of color and Indigenous Peoples, to ensure their safety on campus and in the communities in which they live, learn, work and play. Thank you again for capturing the love, laughter, tears and determination we bring to honor the memory of DJ and his mother and grieving family.

Re: “Past the Dog Whistles, What’s Really at Stake in the McKinley Statue Debate

Thank you for writing a piece that is unambiguous in calling out racist, race-baiting hate speech in local media, both online and print. It is literally nauseating to read some of the anonymous posts in LOCO. However, I find it equally distressing to read some of the opinion and news articles in local print and online media sources. Some have a tongue in cheek tone that is at odds with the seriousness of the issue of taking acttions to make HSU, Arcata and Humboldt County safe for indigenous peoples and people of color.
Thank you also for being unambiguous in calling for the McKinley statue to be moved from its place of centrality on the Arcata Plaza. Whatever its covert and intended meaning to the overwhelmingly white population of Arcata, what has been evidenced by the largely white group that wants rhe McKinley statue to remain in its place is their outrage that anyone would question their right to feel good, no matter the cost to others. It would truly be a shame for this message to be the one supported by the Arcata City Council and community at large.
