    Then don’t forget Virgina Bass’s party, next Monday at the Eureka Women’s club on J street 5 – 8 pm.

    They will also have silent auction items and the cost is either $25 or $30.

    I will see you there Tom !

    When you see the Devil in an overcoat, HiFi. That gang has way over THREE times the money than ANY other candidate has. I wonder where it came from? I looked at Newman’s contributions. It looks like a list of old guard developers and rich guys. Many showed multiple $500 contributions from sveral members of the same family or business division. Sort of makes his pledge to stick to $500 each meaningless. One family, husband, wife, and child each kicked out $500. That’s $1500 in my book. Legal but skirting the self-imposed limit in every way. Security National has several large contributions listed as well, apparently from the same place. If there’s a way to shovel money, the Security National boys will find it.

    I guess it doesn’t matter to Tom that Bonnie has received many thousands of dollars from individuals & organizations, an amount that dwarfs Bass/Brady & Newman COMBINED.

    The TS reported that Bonnie has raised more than Virginia but that Bonnie’s is almost all raised outside of Eureka.

  17. Reinventing The Wheel
    October 13, 2010 at 11:52 am

    Bonnie’s spending is close to the others running for supervisor. Not-so in the Eureka race.

    Because the system is corrupt, contenders against Humboldt County’s deepest pockets, the development community, still need money to compete.

    So far, they haven’t appealed to the Chinese government, as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has done to fund campaigns against U.S. democratic candidates.

    Shouldn’t this be front page news in the “lubrul media”?

    October 13, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    Funny how the other side is always puppets. So I guess with NAN, PJ, Mark R, and George boy the Monkeys is what we will call your team.

    Ya Tom, SN is the only folks that practice this form of funding. I did not know that Monkeys formed Tribes cause most of the thinking by the progressives is just that, Tribal garbage. How about solutions that are best for everyone.

    Glass and LaValle have done nothing but posture in the past, and Bonnie has done nothing credible in the last 24 years. I know, long list of her achievements, except so many on the list are bullshit. Kind of like Gags forming the domestic violence unit, which was funded and operating many years before he was elected.

    Of course the Supes race brings in more money. It always has. That was one of your DUMBEST remarks yet, HiFi. And there’s some stiff competition there.

    So, while Newmman gleaned almost 4 times as much money as Ron. mostly from the Right Wing machine, let’s show ’em something and show up for Ron’s fundraiser. It’s time to have some FUN!

    Can you imagine the fundraisers for VB and Newmy? Everyone in suits and formals, all sipping very dry cocktails, and no one daring to talk about anything real.
    Give me a good old foot stompin’ time, any time.

    Richard Marks resigned from the DCC tonight. That is the second time. This time it was his very public endorsements of Brady, Newman, and Bass on recent mailers. Big headlines on the mailers Democrats support Brady, etc. The democratic logo overlapped the headline. The message implied the DCC supported these candidates which is false, The committee endorsed Neely, Glass and Kuhnel. There was vigorous discussion and Richard had his say and left.

  25. Duplicitous Richard
    October 13, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    Yes, it finally got to the point where Richard Marks’ pimping of the Democratic label got to be too much. All part of Matthew Owens, Virginia Bass and the rest of the “Democratic Infiltration Squad’s” plan to fool as many people, as much of the time as they could.

    My question is, why did it take Milt Boyd so damn long? Why didn’t he accept Richard’s resignation the first time, before Richard and Matthew Owen had the chance to work up that misleading mailer?

    How lame. Now we all know Richard’s true colors!

    Has it occured to you that the funds for city council are “out of whack” because the prog candidates are out of sync with the voters?

    It’s really quite hilarious to watch you all rant about who donates to whom when your ox is being gored, but no outrage over the amount of money Bonnie has raised from outside developers.

    What’s up with that?

    If 90% of Bonnie’s money was coming from a small group of wealthy and powerful local interests, with a clearly stated goal of completely controlling Eureka and County politics…then it would be similar.

    The posturing ($500 liimit???), empty arguments and baseless claims by the Eureka candidates goes on and on…like the money pouring in from the developer crowd that has become richer and richer from resource extraction and insider deals.

    If Virginia cares so much about job development, why have businesses been leaving, not coming to, the city for the last 10 years? Great job – businesses leaving, city taxes going up AGAIN.

    That is bull shit & you’re making it up. No facts, no names, no nothing. Your tin-foil hat is slipping.

    Thanks for nothing 06em. No substance, no response and no point to your post, nothing. Look at Bonnie’s campaign. Throwing mud about a plane trip Virgina got some 15 years ago & trying to pretend its a scandal. Laughable and an amateurish attack.

    Look at Brown’s campaign. Throwing mud that Whitman hired an illegal. Although Whitman followed the law every step of the way. The maid was hird through an agency, had a Social Security number & filled out a form I-9. Then Whitman paid the maid $23 per hour.

  34. anonypotumus
    October 14, 2010 at 8:40 am

    Nice try 7:59, but no traction. Most of the offending money (to council candidates) you speak of has been in $500 increments or less.

    BTW, 99% of Bonnie’s money comes from outside her district. Can’t imagine what you would be making of that if Virginia was the one getting all that payola.

    In addition, if Bonnie cares so much about job creation (from her own lips at every debate and on every commercial) why have businesses been leaving for the past 24 years not to mention county property taxes going up?

    Ridiculous argument isn’t it? Another pesky little fact is the mantra of prog candidates about “light industry”. Have you seen an increase in those jobs?
    I guess it’s one of those catch phrases Larry and company use to get elected and then forget about once elected.

    The thing is the voters are wise to all the buzz words now. They recognize agendas when they see them. My guess is all the prog candidates will go down.

    Wonder how the not at all lovely Linda with her temper will get along with a 4-1 vote? Actually, without Larry there to coach her about their next issue she may spend her last two years rather subdued.

    Most of us are hoping for adults with reasonable views to be our representatives, not those who don’t consider the entire city as constituents.

    I think the polling is rather grim for the Heraldoites, yes?

    “hired through an agency” is the oldest dodge in the book.

  36. Reinventing The Wheel
    October 14, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    I was recently polled at home about whether I, “favored no-growth or the Marina Center”, the same agenda-bloated question offered by the Tea Party to local candidates…when I said I was going to vote for Larry Glass the interviewer groaned! I asked him who he was..all he told me was that he was in the “building trades”.

    “No agenda” and “independent polling” are huge lies. And if we had a public-interest media:

    1) Voters could understand that when a family’s 5 children, cousins, aunts and uncles, donate $500 each, it’s actually a $10,000 donation maintaining a corrupt system.

    2) Voters would hope Neely could get millions from China, (like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), if it would break the development community’s political death-grip.

    3) Voters could understand that attracting capital investment (jobs), tourists (jobs) and residents (jobs) is all about quality of life, which Neely understands and acts upon. In the debate, Bass said she offers “a fresh face” but how is another poverty-wage big box mall on public-use land “a new idea”?

    4) Voters could understand that Eureka can’t have higher paying jobs, manufacturing incubators and industrial parks, like Arcata and many other cities, if it keeps electing “no-agenda” candidates who offer “NO-ALTERNATIVE” to more malls and sprawl. (Asking: “where are Eureka’s manufacturing jobs”, is like asking where the solar power is….after Ronald Reagan tore the panels off the White House roof).

    With a public-interest media, more citizens would register to vote because they could begin to make critical connections between the sewage flowing down their streets and wetlands, the record traffic accidents, the lack of affordable housing, the saturation of poverty-wage jobs and related increases in drug abuse, crime, and the influx of predator industries, the loss of services, rising water/sewer bills, higher taxes, closing schools…

    AND THE HISTORIC POLITICAL DOMINANCE BY THE LOCAL DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY.

  37. The Monitor
    October 14, 2010 at 3:32 pm

    Watch for Larry’s new TV ad. It is hard hitting on the real issue of local crime and the POP unit at EPD. It is interesting to note the Arcata has fully staffed police and fire departments. Hopefully the next council (that would be a progressive one) here will not be so wooden headed and come up with a plan.

    Bonnie has been in 24 years, where is any of the stuff that you talk about supported by the county. Glass, Peter LaValle, Linda Atkins, etc. Where is any of the stuff you talk about in your rant. As usual your just blowing smoke out your ass. If developers control Eureka, how come it is not developed. Because that’s what they do. RTW, I think not, just same old crap from a washed up progressive what-a-be. All Bonnie understands is she wants to continue at the public trough. Monitor, not a chance that the people will put the progressives in charge of anything for a long while because their performance record has been bad.

  39. The Monitor
    October 14, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Eureka is developed. The only large piece of open land is the Balloon tract. There just isn’t much land that developers can build on. That is why Forster Gil and others are grabbing up county ag and forest lands with the hope that the county will start allowing them to get their bulldozers out of mothballs. That is why so much developer money is going into Bass’s campaign. Influence!!!

  40. anonypotumus
    October 15, 2010 at 6:34 am

    Larry has a TV ad? Hmmmm, then someone must be paying for it, right because his latest release of campaign donations shows him with next to nothing.

    The little white lie about public saftety is they have a 16 million dollar budget (out of 20 million budgeted) for the city of Eureka. Larry uses fear of losing police protection, but it isn’t the reality.

    Right after the budget passed and Gar was “disappointed” with his cuts, he managed to hire 4 new people, so all that crying and whining is pretty artificial.

    BTW, does anyone else find the tight relationship between Glass and Nielson inappropriate?

    At the very least it is a conflict of interest. Can’t help wondering why the two of them play CYA all the time.

    I find the relationship between Larry Glass and Chief Nielson to be very effective in keeping our neighborhood As safe as possible. Do you remember how it was a few years ago? Out of control SWAT team, the informative Above the Law on going blog, the series of citizen deaths?
    Larry Glass supports healthy neighborhoods and works to maintain them. This might be upsetting to those who want to see this city run down. High crime is not an invitation to invite companies to join our community.
    Larry Glass lies? I just don’t think so.

    Yeah, all Larry has done was attempt to close the zoo by lying that it was the zoo or the police department. A zoo that had a hundred thousand plus visitors last year. A zoo that makes Eureka special and has been around for a hundred years.

    All Larry did was force the city to buy the Jefferson School site when it doesn’t even have enough money to even pay the cost of purchase much less the millions that it will take to fix it up. It has no committed renters lining up, no plan or idea of what to do with the property or any kind of exit plan from this albatross.

    All Larry did was to go along and allow homeless vagrants to take over the city hall parking lot for over a month. He has allowed the Serenity Inn & the other tweeker motels on Broadway to fester & grow. What a great view to welcome tourists coming from the south.

    Can’t really blame the police chief for losing 14% of his budget not icluding the more than $1M reve.he they generate. The four people hired were to fill long standing vacancies and occurred overperiod of several months. The ceremony just happened to take place on one day. If you don’t believe public safety is the city’s highest priority then don’t vote for Glass or Kuhnel and you will ensure public safety gets gutted. There is a reason the most progressive candidates have received the unanimous support of public safety in this city.

  48. Plain Jane

    Now if only HiFi could explain how Larry forced the city to do anything since he is only 1 vote of 5. He didn’t try to close the zoo. He tried to let the people vote on whether to continue the funding and requested other funding options be explored. He also didn’t lie about cuts to safety budgets. Chief’s Smith and Nielsen testified what the proposed budget cuts would do to their departments.

    Larry’s fund-raiser was a lot of fun. I saw a lot of people I don’t normally see at these local Dem political events. In his 4 years on the Council, Larry has reached a lot of Eureka residents who aren’t necessarily political but who appreciate how hard Larry has worked for them. It showed tonight because a lot of these people turned out for Larry.

    “A zoo that had a hundred thousand plus visitors last year. A zoo that makes Eureka special and has been around for a hundred years.”

    All the more reason for the city to quit funding the zoo and to find a privateer to sell it to.Just by getting it out of governments hands and to a private party you eliminate a large portion of the cost to maintain it.

    Zoos never make money and are not intended to do so.

    Just like the city parks don’t make money.

  63. Plain Jane
    October 19, 2010 at 10:49 am

    Conservatives only support government social spending when they profit from it. The zoo brings visitors, visitors spend money. HEY! How about a surcharge on businesses to fund the zoo? If it’s worth $150,00 of taxpayer money, it should be worth at least $150,000 of their money.

    October 19, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    And who would it hurt the most Jane?

    The poor & poor families. And BTW, there is already a fee. So, taking your greed as a cue, how about a fee to enter all city parks? Another fee to use city roads? A fee every time you use the services of a cop, a fireman, a mailman.

    You might not be aware of this Jane, but 96% of what the city does, does not make money. It costs money. But the city does it because that is what the city is supposed to do. The parks, the streets, the zoo and etc., all contribute to the quality of life.

    Trying getting up & not blog one Saturday & go out & see what the rest of the city does & maybe you would appreciate life more. Visit the zoo & then walk down to the duck pond. Swing on the swings. Your mood would sure improve.

  65. Plain Jane

    A zoo for a city the size of Eureka is a vanity it can’t afford. Laying off and cutting hours of employees is self defeating since it worsens our economic situation. If the businesses who claim they benefit by the visitors the zoo brings to Eureka think it’s worth it, then let them pay for it. Have you been to the zoo lately? There are rarely more than a few people there, fewer even than before when it was free and most of them are at the barnyard where they can touch animals and interact with them. Undoubtedly the cheapest exhibit at the zoo.

    “A zoo for a city the size of Eureka is a vanity it can’t afford.”

    But maybe if the County was kicking in it’s fair share?

    How about the people that promoted the large unsustainable expansion of the zoo should now pay for the increase in cost to run it?

    ninety percent of what the city does doesn’t have the funds to do the job. We cut basic services to fund discretionary programs. We no longer have the sales tax to funds much except basic services. That is a fact. Proprietary budgeting is what is currently needed to get us through this economic crisis.

    So then let Wal-Mart or Home Depot or whatever not build in Eureka and lose those tax dollars to Fortuna or the county. That will help.
