Overtime season is upon us.

I am working on a stretch of 15 days where I will be working over 160 hours. Lots of overtime obviously. I really don't mind that much, but it does start to wear a person out. Monday and Tuesday I had basketball games in the Eureka City Park league and then today I had a union meeting to chair and then a Samoa Fire District Board meeting AFTER work. The reason for the glut of overtime is people trying to take the last of their vacations and days off before the start of our contractual new year in June. I will probably have nearly 100 hours of OT for the month of May, and that includes me taking a week off for vacation!

Richard...I work with Mike Wolcott again and he asked me about you the minute I got to the office on my first day! I hope things are going well for you and your family.

I imagine I'll do more historic stuff. I think I mentioned Gary Thompson and that he didn't play at Eureka High...I knew about Al Erickson playing in Australia, but not much.

I'm kind of hoping to have some fun...and maybe get some of the historical research I did working up there in print...for the record. Those lists...the names...are nowhere on the T/S Web site.

History didn't start yesterday.

Stay in touch.

Hey Ted! Playing softball still? Both of my boys live in Sactown.

(I wrote for Ted when he was editor of the Eureka High newspaper, The Redwood Bark.)

Things in Humboldt change, but then again, stay the same. If you lived here now, you would know what I mean.

I see you're getting the Jerry Droz spam now. Did he just start, or has this been going on for a while? He's been spamming me for a couple weeks now. Sometimes 3 or 4 comments a day.
