The HUM: Movin’ and Groovin’ on Leap Day 2020

This is a Leap Year, which means there’s a knock-down-dragged-out Presidential Election later on in the year, but more immediately, there’s an extra “Leap Day” added to February for arcane reasons.  My dear departed old friend, Gregg “Vinny” DeVaney would invariably explain on our dearly departed radio show Fogou, that it goes back to the

The HUM: The evolution of Humboldt culture

After hosting the weekend’s Bayside Community Hall is having an all day work party on Sunday, Feb. 2, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. “We will be removing all kitchen contents and demoing the kitchen for our kitchen remodel,” they explain. “If you have the skills, tools, and/or want to help, please join us.

The HUM: Set up the pins for the Peppers

It was a Friday night, the historic dance/concert at the Arcata Bowl, just after the turn of the century was titled “Our Last Band Bash.”  The oh-so-memorable night featured top indie rock bands of the day playing in a venue that was known as the Pin Room. The “bash” had our current Third District Supervisor
