Wow! Too much catching up.

Thankfully Heraldo has been busy.

Drama at the Harbor Commission as Goldman Sachs' may not come in on a white horse after all.

KHSU's woes will be discussed on July 30 at the Kate Buchanan room at 6:30 p.m.

Former Eureka Reporter editor Glen Simmons has his own blog, and there's a little bit of controversy as to the explanation for his departure.

It looks like Johanna Rodoni is gearing up. I guess the Governor requested that the Legislative Council issue some sort of opinion as to whether her name should be placed on the ballot. I wonder if they'll consider whether she should be allowed to run at all.

Oh, and I wanted to thank my "blog watcher" for keeping the discussion in line last week. It's sad that those posts are made in the first place, but it's scary to think that some of them are made by people in their 40s, 50s, and even 60s.

Comments:
Johanna is iffy
like Cliffy
but we love Estelle, our
Ms. Fennell.
 
It often takes a little adjustment time after returning from a vacation. I like to call it vacation lag. You'll catch up soon enough. Nice to have you back on the line though.
 
CLIF LIES PEOPLE DIE!
 
Eric, just ignore the screaming ALL CAPS idiot.
 
Heh . . . all these anonymous comments in this blog make me shake my head. If someone's going to say something, they should own their words. Most times, I'd bet, there is not really any good reason to post anonymously.

and . . . as an aside, what is it about blogs and newspaper comment sections that bring out all the wags and wits with little productive to say?
 
I also discount opinions from sources like Heraldo and Deep Throat who refuse to own their words.
 
The Parlance, where Anonymii run free. Free-range anonymii, as it were. Thank you, Eric.
 
Grow up, already. This is the blogosphere, not the letters to the editor section of your local paper. Those rules don't apply here.
 
"Johanna is iffy

Spiffy.
Swell.
Go, Estelle!
 
Gans frustrated with Higgins? Stop the presses!

Maybe they should?
 
Interesting queergrrrl, you're advocating rules and restrictions. Why not start a blog, implement the rules you like, and find out if it works?

Personally I've got no problem ignoring stuff that I don't like, or maybe commenting back if I'm offended. Juvenile attacks and outright insults are too despicable to dignify with a response.

About the only thing I'd censor are multiple postings of the same thing.
 
Eric, Johanna announced that she will be a write-in candidate. There are some folks that are campaigning the Governor's office to get her name on the ballot. At least that is how I have been interpretating this information.
 
I totally agree with queergrrl, if you can't own your opinion, it don't count for a thing.
 
I just received information from a reliable source that the porta-potty will be placed at the north end of the P.O. lot and will be handicapped accessible.

unsigned posts filled with juvenile outbursts and unsupported information waste what could be a useful and valuable community resource. Is it so hard for those who post here, or in any blog, to evince a modicum of decorum and at a minimum treat one another with respect?
 
Oh by the way . . . I shan't be commenting on the juvenile, anonymous, posts any further. I've said all I have to say on that.
 
Eric,
Don't forget the 30 something dance hall crowd.

I got that Carol, but what I'm wondering is that if the council is taking on the research of whether she can have her name on the ballot whether they will get the legislative history and run into the question of whether she can run at all. They should be looking at the same codes.
 
CLIF GIVES US POISONED APPLES!
 
Are you saying, Eric, that there is a possibility that Johanna can not run this November as a write-in?

Did you ever hear a reply to your letter?

Boy, oh boy, this 2nd District Supervisor race is sure like riding a roller coaster!
 
it is funny how queergrrrl thinks that it's sudonim is any less anonymous than the anons.
do you know how many people come to mind that could be queergrrrl?

i even know a few males that proudly fit that description.
 
No replies Carol. Dead silence. And reports of an inquiry to the legislative council that Johanna apparently knew nothing about.

Who knows what's up?
 
Strange.
 
CLIF LIES PEOPLE DIE!

Awesome.
 
Fenn Fenn to the rescue!
 
Eric, your letter was very clear, you deserve a reply even if only that a particular office and person is looking into it.

The 2nd District Council race is starting to resemble the 2000 Florida presidential election. Hair on back of neck coming up.

I wish there was a bigger stink over what is or isn't happening in Sacto. There should be some transparency about the process happening there.
 
Well... let's wait and see what comes of this Legislative Council thing. I'm very curious.
 
2:28pm-queergrrrl AKA Cynthia is a real person. She has respect for being open. You, Mr. Longslong, have some male issues you need to face. First is being an anonymous wiener.
 
The Lord warned us not to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge. And here we have Clif Clendenen offering up a veritable smorgasboard of sin!
 
Five juveniles were arrested in connection with the vandalism at Redway School. I hope they sue their parents.

On what possible grounds could the kids sue their parents? Improper parenting? Failure to inculcate proper morals? Wrongful birth?

I think the kids should take responsibility for their own actions, and not try and throw it off on their parents, and we should encourage the authorities to forstall any such legal action. -ED
 
Cynthia is a real person.

Cynthia who?
 
I believe that the parents should be held accountable. In 1988, California enacted its Street Terrorism and Prevention Act, which fines and imprisons parents for failing to adequately supervise their children.
 
7:55 Do you have children?
 
Very curious about the Redway School Vandalism....do you know who the children were? And is it factual that they were indeed children? Great to hear they have "arrested" those who committed the crime. With any luck we will be able to turn them around with some good ole' fashioned hard work on the school grounds and at our fundraising events this year.
 
You may be able to 'turn them around' but I can guarantee that there will more juvenile vandalism in the community by those who take their place. The root of the problem has not been confronted because you don't even have the foggiest idea of what the root cause of juvenile vandalism is.
 
I've been here 37 years and juvenile vandalism has always been a part of community life here. Very rarely have private individuals been the target. Usually it is the Schools, State Parks and highways. You don't see kids tagging the Sheriff's Office. Often the targets are highway signs or the bathrooms at rest areas. The bathroom at Phillipsville is now a portapotty as a result of several large explosions. If it made the papers, I never saw it. Most of the highway sign destruction happens on the Avenue of the Giants where kids on their way to school will see it. Otherwise, there would be no point to it. The vandals try to impress their friends with their "craziness". Many of these testosterone cases wind up responsible adults which is no excuse, of course.
 
My guess is that boredom plays a large part, but who am I to speculate. It is unfortunate, and yes it will likely happen again at the hands of another group of youth in the future. But hopefully not on our school grounds. And if those apprehended are handed adequate consequences maybe it will help deter them from such damaging behavior in the future.
 
The kids should be made to pay for the vandalism and if they don't then the school should sue the parents for all the costs. Sometimes parents are not aware what their children are doing and sometimes parents just let them run wild and don't care what they are doing.
 
Well ben, maybe it's time we stop putting up with it.
 
Cristina Baus has an article in this week's Independent by the way.
