Jimmy Smith RIP.

Former Harbor District Commissioner and 1st District Supervisor Jimmy Smith passed away May 23rd. Jimmy was one of those guys that you always felt good after talking to him. Not too many people like that. He will be greatly missed.

Hair today, gone tomorrow.

Sent this batch off to Locks of love. Thought my last donation would be my final, but new crop took a little over a year.

Got alot of sun today at the Arcata Community Center. I was there for 8 hours for softball madness. Weather absolutely gorgeous and lots of great games!

My Slumoa garage broke into for 4th time this year. With a twist!

Someone broke into my garage in Samoa and left remodel crap and some tires! Why can't people just leave other peoples property alone! Got to go buy new lock once again. 4 times in less than a year is excessive to say the least.

North Coast Rail Authority: "Onto Cloverdale and beyond!"

Escrow closed and the North Coast Rail Authority (NCRA) was 3.65 million dollars richer...........until other bills are paid. But at least some good news for the agency. North Western Pacific Co (NWPco) expressed their desire to partner up and expand rail service as soon as possible to Cloverdale and then Willits!

Homeless Conundrum not just Humboldt. Read SF piece.

Heather Knight continues the SF Chronicles many stories and issues with the homeless. Sounds very familiar, doesn't it? I really don't have the answer to the problem and I haven't heard of any great solutions.

6th Slumoa burglary of the year 2016 for Samoasoftball.

I only turned in one of the claims to the Humboldt Sheriffs office. I was treated like I was the perpetrator instead of the victim. I had the thieves name and contacts who also tried identity theft on my personal accounts. I was shuffled around and I just gave up. Since then I have had 2 more break ins of my garage and 2 property thefts of covered storage area next to my cars. Yesterday I discovered that the jointly shared shed with my neighbor, (which was a heroin den and living quarter to a known drug dealer and person charged with murder) was used to break into my side of the shed from the attic and they ripped off my gas tanks and made a mess of the room. We didn't notice since the lock on the outside was not messed with. (They left my bats, huge BBQ, big lawn mower and other stuff behind since that would have been a huge challenge going through the attic.) So I see that Humboldt County has a high rate of theft. I wonder how many are like me and have only reported 1 out of 6 out of frustration with the process?
