Looking out for older Californians

So, everybody is a special or corporate interest but the CSL? Yet all the CSL does is promote legislation to give seniors an edge over everyone else. Sounds to me like the CSL is as bad, or worse, than many of the special interests they point fingers at.  (Jan 12, 2011 | post #1)

Good. That means my comments will have even more impact.  (Jan 12, 2011 | post #5)

Supes uphold raw milk status quo

Yes, it is appalling to see how many people think it's ok to tell others what they can eat, drink or smoke.  (Jan 12, 2011 | post #9)

Smoking statistics show value of Proposition 99

And you have to wonder how the folks who wrote this editorial are going to feel when they start getting hit for all the taxes on tobacco the ex- smokers aren't paying anymore?  (Jan 6, 2011 | post #4)

My Word: A new year in Humboldt County

Just what we need. More Bay Area transplants to screw up local politics.  (Jan 1, 2011 | post #1)

The merging lane lemmings infect McKinleyville

And it's not like they're not given the chance to merge earlier. When I'm headed south on 101 in the Santa Rosa area and approach the merge spots, I back off from the car ahead of me to give cars in the closing lane plenty of room to merge. I've rarely had anyone take advantage of the opening. They just speed past hoping to get as past as many cars as they can until they have to stop at the end of their lane because traffic is all tied up.  (Dec 29, 2010 | post #20)

I'm with Al. This guy is another one of those guys that thinks he should be able to jump to the front of the line in front of everybody else who makes the merge early so you don't have a big jam up at the final merge point. I say don't let these guys in when they wait until the last minute to merge.  (Dec 29, 2010 | post #5)

Eureka Open Door clinic well on its way to completing on ...

That actually makes some sense to me. It would then be right in the heart of the area where much of its clientele likely lives.  (Dec 26, 2010 | post #5)

Ask yourself this

Your well reasoned argument won't sway the Believers, Alex. They're so hysterical about global warming they can't think straight.  (Dec 19, 2010 | post #1)

Eureka Victorian heavily damaged during Monday night fire

No, it might have been years ago, but now it's a big house with 11 bedrooms, from what I've been told. It needs to be leveled and started over again as a small single family dwelling.  (Dec 1, 2010 | post #10)

Perhaps, and I'm one usually supportive of group homes and the like. In fact, that house used to be a juvenile group home before it was sold off and turned into a boarding house. Never had any problems back then, to speak of.  (Dec 1, 2010 | post #4)

I live right across the street from this house. This house has been a problem for some time. It used to be a boarding house. After the manager was taken to jail two or three months ago, the house was pretty much abandoned. No surprise that some transients might have been sneaking inside to stay there, but I never say anybody that I thought might be. I was actually hoping something like this would happen. Best thing to happen, imo, is for the house to burn down. Otherwise, what else will it be used for but a drug rehab or another boarding house? Nobody can afford to buy an eleven bedroom house unless they're going to use it for drug rehab, a group home, or boarding house. I'd rather see it go down and have a single family residence built.  (Dec 1, 2010 | post #2)
