Robin and I were having lunch at the Sizzler in Eureka on Sunday when a guy came through the door on 5th st. and walked up to our table and asked for change. I looked at him and said, "You are seriously panhandling us while we are eating?" One of the workers came over and said he does this quite often, but usually outside. There are places providing food for the needy in Eureka. I was a chronic enabler and soft touch for years but it is out of control. What is the solution? Other communities give out citations to the people giving money. Is that the solution? Got me, but it is getting much worse in Eureka. Not better.
