Ah, yes, the lashlees. One of the families who think they own Humboldt and the strawberry festival. The community does not unite for this, regardless of walks of life like the article says. The fancy yard party types look right down their noses at the common folk milling around, as if it's their humanitarian duty to allow such people to attend. The Lashlees claim in this article to love Humboldt so much... that they're too good to actually do anything in Humboldt but sleep.

But they own one of the oldest family businesses in town? And they go to church in humboldt. And they live in humboldt. And they give so much to the underprivileged in humboldt. They shop in humboldt. They live in humboldt.
I don't know who you are, but you honestly don't know much about them to be talking shit on a gossip forum.
