Wow, what a lot of rage over nothing. Where was this rage when it was not done legally in the first place? Nope, nothing. Lets get things clear, NCRA directors had nothing to do with this, the Humboldt Mayors did. In order to correct this, there was a revote of the issue. More put in their voice as tends to happen in democracies, and they decided on a better person. I don’t see it as a knock against trails simply because Director Marks is on record wanting trails and trails has been approved long before either one of these two got on board. The two I can think of is Healdburg, the the other is Arcata to Bracutt. Oh yes, most of the A&MR RR to be converted long ago to a trail. Yet these articles and editorials attempt to sell you Stillman would of brought fresh new ideas. Not buying that one.

Rail and Trail around Humboldt Bay

I admit being nervous how the committee process would go.  As I told NCRA at their last meeting, what they came up with was very smart. Now we have a rail with trail process around the bay. This gives our area the political capital and economic benefits we need to implement the plan a single way could not. I knew that not all the ties needed to be replaced, and the rail did not need to be replaced, yet you naysayers would not listen. We can finally move forward now that the “squeeze” folks have quieted down. For those who continue to doubt normal maintenance can raise the rail-bed effectively for sea level rise, please understand NCRA already has done this as part of the rebuilding process. They raised the trestle down in Novato. On either side the track needed to  be raised to match the bridge.

I am a part of this process. I do not have a problem with putting a trail along side the rail. I do have a problem with removing the rail for a trail in these vital areas. We need the tourist train. The tourist train is about diversification of our economy.

Election night

The results were disappointing for the most part.

The stupid GMO was defeated. We have too many costs for everything, that just get passed on to the consumer, like the egg thing.

The death penalty repeal has been rightfully defeated. The irony of the situation is we are supposed to care about people who did not care how their victims died.

Three Strikes reform was passed.

With those I can feel pretty good.

Can anybody translate, “Cap, I think every one election picks lost Well done!”

I spent the night at the Humboldt Amateur Radio Club meeting. First half was business, where I brought up Harbor District’s proposed RV park on Woodley Island. I brought it up because that is where field day is held twice a year. The grass areas would be replaced with RV spots, eliminating any place to set up the antennas. The idea is to practice establishing global contacts in case of disaster. The nice thing about that spot is the public exposure. Some Hams like that spot, others are like we can move anywhere.

Second half was an interesting presentation by WWII Navy Photographer. He served in the Pacific theater. He photographed the Aleutian Islands Campaign, Bikini Atoll Nuclear tests, and Antarctic coastline. The Aleutian Islands Campaign is where Japan invaded, and occupied part of Alaska. one of the photographs he had from the air showed a bomb dropping in the Aleutian islands Campaign. Here was a person who witnessed the Bikini Atoll tests and walked on the ships after they were bombed. The did not know about radiation back then. I never thought I would ever meat someone who has done so much and has done these things.
