Fix McK’s north Central Avenue first
I moved to McK in 1970 when it had about 5,000 residents. With three times that many residents now, we have done nothing to improve the north half of Central Avenue.
As we are arguably the second-largest population center in Humboldt County, we are the only larger community with access to the Pacific Ocean. If you don’t mind walking in the road.
This is the main road into McK and there are no shoulders and the road is in terrible condition halfway into the lane.
Many thanks to most of the courteous people of McK there have been no fatalities that I am aware of.
Before we doll up the other entrances to our community, let’s fix the north half of our main entrance to the north so that walkers, strollers and bicycles have a safer access to Clam Beach and drivers don’t have to go halfway across the yellow line to avoid hitting someone.
I have mentioned this to supervisors past with only “we’re working on it” and nothing else. Maybe Steve Madrone can get something done.
Solidarity with store greeters
Recently the WalMart corporation has created new physical standards for the store greeters. these new standards disqualify 90 percent of the store greeters.
In the past, WalMart has hired persons with physical disabilities for these positions. Now, with these standards, which the disabled cannot meet, will cause them to be terminated.
What started out as a commenndable hiring practice has now added another black mark on the WalMart corporation.
To show your support, people should cease shopping at WalMart until this practice ends.

Drooling over daffodils
I hope the party who stole my lovely daffodils will have a very guilty conscience. It was done during the night of March 14.
It might not seem much, but as far as the principle of the thing is concerned, a small theft is just as wrong as a greater theft and is so disgraceful and shows very little bringing up in the home living of that party who is guilty.
I’m sure if a person is drooling at the mouth for flower, one would only be too glad to give them a few rather than have them stolen in such a scandalous way, though I do want to say thanks for leaving my bulbs.
