The Five Stooges?
Why is it that five supposedly educated people on the city council could not come up with a slogan for Ukiah? Evidently the total combined brain power was lacking.

Like most councilpersons, senators,and people in public office, all on a power trip. It's not what's good for their constituents, it's all about what they want and the legagacy they want to leave. Most are corrupt, so why vote. Time to rebel and don't pay taxes or make house payments, pay utilities. If we all stuck together we could bring them to our level.

22 grand is a ridiculous amount of money for a logo and a brochure design, and whoever approved this expenditure of public money should be fired. What was even more amazing was the claim this hotel tax money was "free" thanks to "tourists" visiting the Ukiah Valley. Bull- there aren't "tourists" visiting Ukiah, they're people here on business and their expenses are passed on to, ultimately, the public.
Not to mention the slogan itself is lame, in my opinion. A more appropriate slogan would be "Ukiah- where Woodstock meets Deliverance." The 22 thousand dollar "Ukiah- close, far out" is an obvious promotion of our marijuana industry.
However,since the powers that be have decided to cash in on our reputation as the pot capital of America in order to attract tourism, I have several suggestions for the City to entertain the coming flood of green tourists so fascinated by our local pot culture-
1) A tour of a typical indoor grow site, complete with the black mold growing on the walls and the chemicals and diesel fuel dumped in the back yard.
2) A visit to the Masonite Site, perhaps the proudest accomplishment of our local no growth pro pot leadership. Maybe put a plaque up amongst the rubble declaring "A monument to what can be accomplished when a Community says 'No we can't.'"
3) A nature walk along the railroad tracks from Perkins St. to Gobbi St.
4) A memorial to all those who have been killed while participating in the pot trade.
5) A museum containing confiscated firearms from local, peaceful pot dealers.
6) A visit to a pot garden...just look over anyone's back fence, chances are good there'll be a few plants there.
The City Council might have visions of tye dye stands on every corner and marijuana vendors at the Farmers Market, but I doubt this'll happen...at the end of the day the only thing accomplished is they'll waste more public money.
