Local leaders take action!

I sure was glad to hear positive results of lobbying done by local officials. Times-Standard Online - Trip to Capitol nets funds for Willits Bypass

Another action that is expected by the BOS tomorrow is the consideration of authorizing a letter of support for a motion by Pacific Lumber Co. calling for bankruptcy court authorization to pay severance packages promised to workers whose jobs were eliminated in December 2006. The Eureka Reporter - Article This should happen without a problem.

Now if you asked the BOS to be critical of PL's labor practices or timber harvest practices it would be a different story. Then you would have a collusion issue. PL has given plenty of campaign support to more than one member of the Board of Supervisors. That is why, in an ideal world, politicians would be better served to not accept corporate dollars. But then again, in the real world, it is hard to be a viable candidate without corporate funds.

Cal Trans shouldn't bypass Willits, they should blow it up. After they bypass Willits, Cal Trans will be taking out trees in Richardson's Grove in order to widen the highway, and many of the biggest trees are right next to the road; what a shame. After that's done, the criminals from the bay area will have a straight shot to Humboldt to commit their crimes and will be able to zip right back down to the city to hide from the law in a maze of millions of people.

Ironic that the new two lane plan is what the envronmentalists have been advocating all along.

The reason it has been so long to come is that Berg is too busy lobbying for death and needles to do her JOB.

"...Berg is too busy lobbying for death and needles.."

Here the "death with no shred of dignity" person chooses to gloat.

Way to score points.

He's right on though. Patty is considered a zero politically but a sweet lady in the halls of Sac.

I am glad that Bonnie Neely took time to help the county as far as county road projects.
