Re: “Share Your Stories About The Two Days That Shook Humboldt

I remember that day very well, I was living up here in Crescent City and working for the U.S. Forest Service on the handline crew, Gasquet District of the Six Rivers.

We were out burning slash units on the Canthook Ridge. I was deep on east line about 400' or so running saw doing line improvement for about an hour or so when I was tapped on the shoulder and a crewman yelled "Drop your saw and up to the landing, there's a earthquake". My response, "Hell I not gonna toss my saw" and I packed it up.

So all the sup's, burning and holding crews were at the landing and accounted for, and the whole time I thought someone was jerkin' my chain, wasn't none too happy at that point. Anyway, just prior to the to the earthquake alert radioed in by Fortuna, apparently all the drip torches that were filled for the burn crews were dancing around on the landing with the sway that they felt on the landing. Me, didn't feel a thing on the end of that saw, quit a few crewmen didn't feel it.

Surely felt for all the folks affected by the two day rumble. we were waiting to be dispatched to assist with the quake incident, never happened. That's my story. Stedman...

Re: “Arcata Affirms Commitment to All Residents, Stops Short of 'Sanctuary City'

The United States is a land of laws and the optimal words are "Legal" and "Illegal" as it pertains to immigration. Of course the democrats would alter it to "undocumented" immigrants.

My Great Grand Parents came to the United States from Norway in 1880, and went through the immigration process, as it was back then, on Elis Island. I am familiar with the new process though the I.N.S. 2003 My wife arrived with a spousal VISA, then we went through the resident VISA. Then she work on her goal, which was her citizenship which she achieved.

I don't know how many countries there are, but I'm sure we have illegals immigrants from each of them. First off they've broken the immigration laws either sneaking in or overstaying their VISA without renewal. Now if I violated a law as minimal as jay walking, was citied and didn't want to pay the fine, and after 30 days it turned into a warrant for my arrest and I ended up doing 6 months in jail, would that be fair? Of course it would be. So what is the difference between an illegal immigrant's violation for trespassing into the United States and any American's domestic crime? Absolutely none. A criminal violation is a criminal violation.

So in reality, sanctuary cities are harboring criminals and that is against the law. Let's take San Francisco as an example. Reading the S.F. Chronical, they have over 6,000 homeless whom are American citizens, and the city is unable to deal with. But there's 4000 illegal immigrants that are getting all the freebies and shelter. Something kinda stinks don't it?? It's been documented that they're chasing M13 gangsters around town.

Be carful what you wish for, it will surely turn around and bite you....

Re: “The Need for Sanctuary

The primary word is "illegal" immigrants. If I broke the law. I most certainly be arrested. I'm very familiar with the INS. My wife came to the United States in 2003 on a spousal VISA which we had to file six months prior to her arrival . Then we had to go through the process for the residential VISA. within the next week we worked on her citizenship, which she passed the exam and became a citizen. Every year thousands go through the VISA process. just takes time and money.

Re: “Lazio's Last Stand

Just came across this article about Lazio's. I fished off the Lazio cannery loading dock when I was a munchkin, 10, 11 years old. Now it's 2016, I'm 62 and living up here in Crescent City.
Yeah, Let's see, "Duce St." the Card Room, Golden Horn, Silver Dollar Club, Vince's Log Cabin. Myself and a few of my buddies Used to ride our bikes from Harris and California streets with our fishing poles down to Lazio's and kill a couple hours fishing off the docks. Those were the days, nothing like today.
