We are a community of many different occupations and ages. Yet we all live harmoniously and look out for each other.
Stop animal insanity This is an open letter to the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors. I am deeply saddened by the drastic decrease in time a homeless animal is given at the county shelter before being killed. It’s disturbing. Did you know that to give every homeless animal a home, each human must take in…

If Measure R does not pass, the district will also be forced to terminate the positions of six firefighters. The national standard for the number of firefighters on an engine is four, the California state standard is three per engine.

Additionally, the closure of a fire station would likely affect the district’s ISO rating insurance companies use to set the costs of fire insurance policies for the area.
It appears obvious that the spineless Republican Senators will do their best to clear him and he will boast that he is innocent. I am sure that any of them who do actually listen to all of the evidence and votes otherwise will be hearing from him on twitter. He can be very nasty.
