LEE ULANSEY: Rob Arkley’s hero
North Coast Journal publisher Judy Hodgson brings us the latest news on Eureka “Landowner, Entrepreneur and Community Activist Rob Arkley” in this week’s paper, reporting on his keynote speech at the Redwood Region Logging Conference.
Arkley gave his short list of heroes, including right wing blowhard Rush Limbaugh and HumCPR president Lee Ulansey, whose group purports to be for the little guy but captures the hearts of the big wigs.
However, we’re glad the cat’s out of the money bag. Flashback to a 2007 post on the Humboldt Herald called Arkley, Maxxam find Dupes in Humboldt CPR.
Arkley also admires childhood friend Bobby Figas for his trailblazing work to export local logs to China. Who needs sawmill jobs when we’re going to have a Home Depot?
Arkley said he is a real environmentalist, “green and proud of it.”
The paper version appears to omit at least half a sentence at the end of page 8, which directs the reader to continue reading on page 11, but there you find an entirely new article. Instead, the Arkley piece continues on page 9 but fails to contain the last part of the sentence left hanging on page 8. Perhaps the Journal‘s new editor will work to make sure all sentences are treated equal.
