    I’m sure you meant to say “error”. Rex, Ryan and now Estelle have given the build anything anywhere crowd the three votes they’ll need.
    Hey, private property rights trump all else right? A slaughter house next door to your home? Sure, why not?

    “A slaughter house next door to your home?”
    Call it an “abbatoir,” like the Russ family did. Better for property values.

    Respect for private property is a fundamental foundation of the United States. Hyperbole is also a fundamental American trait. Glad to see the new and returning Supervisors sworn in. Good luck herding all the crazy folks at the podium.

    I agree with Bob. Let’s not forget all the $$$ that went into both of their campaigns. Fennell outspent Clendenen by 2 to 1 and Bohn outspent Seidner 3 to 1.

    I don’t see a “new era” but rather the Old Era writ large. One look at the establishment sources who funded Rex and Estelle tells the story: We Like it This Way.

    Whining about money spent on the race really does get tiresome. Especially because it was such a small amount compared to, for example, the yearly of Humboldt County.

    If you clowns (and I say that positively, I like clowns) want to really hold their feet to the fire, there is only one drum worth banging:

    Unfunded pension liabilities. It’s the looming 500 foot tidal wave of doom for Humboldt county.

    It’s like the preceding post says. “D is for forward and R is for reverse”. When this board gets into gear, don’t stand behind them regardless of what the shifter says!

    Private property rights are the foundation for this free society. The slaughter house was there first, The problem is that the Lovelace crew think it’s fine to move in around the slaughter house and then complain till they can shut it down, After all they get their meat, eggs,milk from the store. They get their political values from Soros,,Acorn, Bill Ayers , Yahoo! Don’t Worry! Got my Bama Phone! Who needs them out dayed rights?

    “Got my Bama Phone!”

    And there goes any shred of credibility you might have had, flushed down into the sewer of your racism / Obama obsession. Too bad, because there was a kernel of truth in your point about NIMBYism.

    There was a similar situation out on Ridgewood a number of years ago. A dog kennel (Lazy Acres) had been there for many decades without problem. As the neighborhood started to grow and the pastures were subdivided, the new neighbors started complaining about the noise and the county shut them down with new and unaffordable regulations. I don’t think Lovelace (or any progressive) was on the BOS 20+ years ago when this occurred.

    If you’re really going to argue first-in-time, first-in-right as a valid defense of property rights, I believe that the various Native American tribes in this area might like to have a word with you.

    The cycle is almost complete of removing (voting out of office) our local no-grow politicians.

    With a 4-1 vote at the County and City of Eureka it’s about to get interesting.

  22. January 8, 2013 at 10:20 am | #22

    Why leave just when the board of supervisors tips in your direction/??

  23. January 8, 2013 at 10:20 am | #23

    Maybe they will act rationally to raise the minimum wage in Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna and Humboldt County. That is the best way to stimulate the local economy.

    have a peaceful day,

    Uh, highboldtag – I wouldn’t hold my breath for any minimum wage increases. I think the prevailing ideology in office is that it would hurt the economy, by making our businesses less competitive with those in neighboring counties. I know it doesn’t work that way, and various studies have indicated as much, but that proposal probably won’t even see light of day. You can get Mark’s vote. Estelle’s? I don’t know.

    But maybe I’m wrong. Go ahead and push for it.

  25. January 8, 2013 at 10:38 am | #25

    Hello Eric,

    I am not holding my breath I am pushing as hard as I can brother.

    have a peaceful day,
    Bill

    Old ideas and strategies finally fail, and new ones must be tried. That is true progress.

    Same with the guy that owns Taylor Landscape. That’s the guy that sells landscape materials over on West Del Norte(?).

    He lived down a road next to Ridgewood School. He allowed the maintenance gardeners to go to his property and dump grass and other green debris. He’d compost it and add it to the planting mix he sold.

    Someone moved in on the road, complained about the traffic and the county shut him down. I never saw any “traffic”. Whenever I went out there I was the only one and it wasn’t like there were piles and piles of green waste on the property. I think very few people took advantage of his dump spot.

    I asked him about that later and he was a bit annoyed over the affair. He said he’d been living there for over 20 years, then “they” came in, lived there for maybe 2 years and closed him down.

    Really? Can you name any non liberal representing Arcata on the BOS in the last 30 years?

    Thanks to Rex, we might be able to roll back big government. If we lowered minimum wage and eliminated the mountains of regulations and obstacles to building homes and creating jobs, Humboldt County would have lower unemployment and business owners would be more prosperous. Have you noticed all the shuttered businesses in Eureka, etc? Less prosperity for business owners and less jobs.

    By far, the biggest subdivision planned for Humboldt County is the Foster-Gill project proposed for Ridgewood, which has been enthusiastically supported by none other than Mark Lovelace.

    I’m reminded of the part in Back to the Future where the picture of the the family starts to fade away. Just like the progtards are fading away in Humboldt. Now just get that ass Faust off the planning board and Humboldt might have a chance.

    I don’t get it. I’m not sure I’ve ever taken a position on subdivisions.

    What do you mean by “closed him down”, exactly? Told him his property wasn’t zoned for dumping (even green waste)? Told him to get a permit for public health reasons?

    Baykeeper: Nothing but a trough addict; they do nothing but sponge off as much money as they can for their own agenda; hmmm….isn’t that what Libs complain that the development community does??? Pots, Kettles, anyone?
