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.

Sorry if the lighting is not quite right on a few of them. The spring on my normal lens broke, disabling automatic exposure.

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.

Bayshore Mall parking lot from Sears to Wal-Mart was packed. We did not bother with Wal-Mart. The night before they has traffic barriers in a zig zag pattern outside for shoppers. Sears itself was packed. They sold out of the old Wii they had on sale. Kmart parking lot was full and lots of shoppers inside.
Oh yeah, lots Trick or Treating at Bayshore Mall had many more people than last year.

I have viewed your website more than enough with ads on to make up for the little amount of time it took to add my blog to the list. I have suffered with your ads obnoxiously covering the recent comments, scrolling with the page. Even when I got them to go away, they came right back.
The irony is you only knew what I did because I said so. You do not know if anyone else is using an ad blocker on the list of Humboldt Blogs. With your idea, I should be grateful to Google, Yahoo, etc and gleefully accept ads with their faults. I should be grateful for the ads on mobile devices, even though it uses battery power faster.
No. I guess you can say I am tired of the ads like others are tired of the billboards along Humboldt Bay. Having dealt with computers since the Atari days. I find it ridiculous to have four gigs of memory with the browser still running slow, because of ads, scripts, add on, etc.
You took my blog off once before. You said it was because my percentage of Humboldt stuff was below fifty percent. I counted my stuff, and most of it was Humboldt. Still you did not want to put it back. There is two blogs who, at times below fifty percent. It does not matter to you. I think even if I do get back on, another unwritten rule will be used. I am not sure I see the value of a list if it is administered unfairly and does not have all Humboldt Blogs.
I pointed you in the right direction to fix your water heater. I tried helping you with info on East-West rail. So no I do not owe you. I am glad when I am listed. I know you think I am beneath you. I do not care.
It gets rid of all those ads, making your browsing experience much faster, smoother, and less memory used.
It works on Times-Standard, Lost Coast Outpost, Facebook, and Yahoo to name a few. Suggested donation is $5. The bonus is the horrendously obtrusive ads on Lost Coast Outpost no longer cover recent comment block on the right-hand side. Best of all it makes Hank Sims really mad. Then you run in to one of the many unwritten rules of what blogs make it on to the Humboldt blog roll.

The last post done in Nov of last year on this subject. Think about it, nearly a year has gone by since I got so frustrated with how long it was taking to build the fence and lease negotiations. There was even an article in the Times Standard before my post. The fence needs to be repaired to protect what the Harbor District calls the oldest Roundhouse on the West Coast. There is only three roundhouses on the West Coast. You would think the Harbor District would want to work quickly to protect these buildings. The notice for the fence was put up nearly a year ago. My other post on the subject. There is something seriously wrong when you cannot build a fence by now.
Long term lease is still up in the air. Both lease negotiators are trails folks. My opinion is by encumbering Timber Heritage Association, it makes THA look like they cannot carry out enough to need the Arcata to Eureka right of way(ROW). Thus speeding up their trails. Either that or the Arcata 805/08:05 club is pulling strings.
