Quote of the Day

“Unlike some past council members, I don’t have the capacity to know what the people who are not communicating with me are thinking.” — Eureka City Councilwoman Linda Atkins in response to the July 22 op-ed by a vocal clique of critics.

    Also from Linda’s letter: “It sometimes takes sustained communication to convince some elected officials that the public should not be ignored.” Linda’s letter was an invitation for citizens to continue to keep trying to communicate with the elected members of our city council. There is a responsibility in being a citizen just as there is in being an elected official.

    I wish I could say I’m surprised that some people can’t understand such an elementary concept. To translate for them, it means she can’t read minds and only knows what the people want who actually communicate their ideas and desires to her. Politicians who run on a popular platform and then switch agendas after election, claiming a mandate that wasn’t mentioned during the election, are corrupt. In Wisconsin they are throwing the bums out of office who tried it.

    The comment by Linda Atkins is unbelievably childish & amateurish. I would expect it of some bloggers but Atkins is old enough to know better.

    She has alienated the entire city council and city manager AGAIN ! To be an effective city councilman means you have to have the maturity to understand that you want your foe on one issue to side with you on the next. You have to ask yourself does she want to accomplish anything at all or just get a tiny handful of left-wing Heraldo bloggers frothing at the mouth ?

    You are such a delusional fool, HiFi. You wish everyone would just go along to get along (so long as it is your agenda they are going along with) regardless what the people want. The current council changed their agenda after election and have done absolutely nothing to fulfill their promises. Linda has the guts to stand up to these Arkley / Chamber of Commerce sycophants and all your insults won’t change that. If Eureka had a true ward system, most of those bozos wouldn’t even be on the council.

    “Linda’s tantrums made you feel good but it ended any hope of her accomplishing anything on the council.” This is nothing but empty ridicule HiFi. It’s a ploy to make people feel bad or like they are less than you. It is a request to shut up and go away. Linda’s letter was a request to come forward and speak up. There is no tantrum in her letter at all. It is an invitation to participate in our democracy, our future.

    The tantrum dear Goldie was in her public accusations in the media against all her fellow council members. Her tantrum in this My Word piece is in her accusations against her former board members who spoke up in defense of Tyson. Reread the letter and with a critical eye this time.

    PJ, your silly post at 2.30pm just goes to show how far gone your reasoning abilities are.

    So nobody else will post anything critique of Atkin’s piece it leaves me the only one to do it.

    She accuses the current & former council members of trying to stifle dissent when they are doing nothing of the kind. There are mature ways of dissenting without the nasty outbursts that Mz Atkins persists in.

    She says she wouldn’t “treat badly, council members or staff with hom I’ve had disagreements”. Yet that is exactly what she has & is doing.

    She downplays her role in this public disagreement, saying only that she was “encouraging the citizens to express themselves. Never mentioning she had a large role in the failed petition gathering process.

    She accuses them of “disregard of your concerns”. She then accuses her fellow council members of bringing negative changes & closed communication. She accuses them of acting in a way that the “overwhelming” number of citizens disagree with without even any evidence of same. She accuses them of “dismissing their complaints as unimportant”.

    She seems to be unable to disagree with their actions without casting evil intent on their part. Much like PJ does in almost every one of her 876 daily posts here.

    To be effective in public office, you must bring others to your view on an issue, because being a board member means that you only accomplish something if you can gain support from our fellow board members. if you goal is to be an outside fighter, you will certainly get press and blog reports, but you will push other decision makers away from you and therefore make your ability to affect decisions even more remote. If you feel that the board does not have public support and you wish to bring about pubic sentiment to get new board members, then you will raise issues and get press and blog comments. Unfortunately that is a tool used by a board member who has an election after the next round of elections for their board.
    So if Linda’s goal is to bring others to her position, her tactics are a failure at best. If her goal is to change the balance on the board, then her tactic may just backfire since she is up for election and the people she is fighting won with a large majority. It seems that she wants to be an outside fighter and enjoys the role and therefore will be inneffective in office.

    If they all have to speak with one voice, why not just have a dictator, Ben? The derision seems to arise from the silly idea that she spoke out stupidly, believing everyone would suddenly have an epiphany and agree with her. I’m sure Ms. Atkins doesn’t need to hear from you or me about the risks she takes in standing up for constituents who don’t own most of Eureka. That she does so knowing the risks only increases the respect she deserves for her courage, agree with her or not.

    What the Atkins critics don’t quite get is that what was childish and immaturish in the first place was the letter by Team Arkley. Why bother to criticize a council member who isn’t even around anymore-Larry- unless you are still carrying a grudge. Why bother to trash Linda because, as a minority of one, she certainly can’t affect the puppets’ votes.
    It seems pretty obvious that they are afraid Linda’s actions will find fertile ground among citizens already pissed about some of this council’s actions.
    If they were smart they would have just ignored her, but now they are actually giving credence to what she is doing and saying because they obviously feel they have to challenge it, even if it makes them look less than professional, grownup and mature.

    Hello? This is about spot zoning and the right of some thereof to petition and win their required land use designations at will.

    Eureka has granted about six dozen such reclassifications since 1980. Prior to 1980? None. And now they want the county, too. Rex calls it the “change Eureka needs”. At least, I guess that’s what he means.

    Obviously the old guard is concerned about Atkins and her ability to excite the liberal and less-connected portions of Eureka. If they weren’t there would not be such an immediate reaction to her My Word by the people posting here and by HiFi (who protests way too much).
    A good friend who has paid very little attention to this issues told me this morning, “wow, it’s nice to see someone take the high road”. Notice that Atkins didn’t point fingers at specific individuals (like the other My Word piece did) and she didn’t try to deflect by talking about past city council members (the way the other My Word piece did) or other issues such as the Balloon Track (the way the other MyWord piece did).
    The Chamber/Arkley crowd is obviously worried. Atkins is capable of holding her own and inviting in a lot of people who normally don’t have their voices heard. Perhaps many of us should go to the next council meeting and ask why we don’t have a Marina Center Now!

    We’ll see – I’ve given up on trying to predict who will win these elections – certainly many on this blog were comfortable in presuming a progressive majority for the city council, and we all saw how that turned out.

    I think for every Repub Convert to Dem like Virginia Bass, there is (as Richard Marks aptly named them) a Greenocrat, posing as a Dem.

    Pitchfork, if you think the Marina Center is dead because seven months have gone by, you know nothing about the process. It may very well never get built, we likley won’t know for a couple of years.

    “If Linda Atkins can keep this pace, she will inspire more turnout in 2012, and ensure her reelection.”

    7:57 is correct. Voters can be fickle so there’s no way to predict the outcome of local elections.

    The problem Atkins and her supporters have is they think most people think as they do. Thus the “if more people turn out to vote, we’ll win…“, comments. It’s understandable, as most of us tend to hang with those that think along the same line as we do.

    Most of the people I run into on a day to day basis either don’t care one way or the other about Atkins, Jefferson School or Chief Nielsen, or are on the other side of the issue.

    Atkins biggest mistake seems to be aligning herself with the fringe left but thinking she’s representing the majority.

    What is wrong with a professional uniform? I would have thought many of you “left of center” types would oppose the more military sytle fatique uniforms that became the standard with King Garr’s reign. In truth, with King Garr there ended up with no standard uniform. Nielsen allowed what you call the old “LAPD” traditional police uniforms, the fatigues, and the nylon suits (akerman suits) that were supposed to be for foul weather. The Akerman suits ended up being worn whenever the individual felt like it (too lazy or to big a behind to get into the regular uniform). When each individual can mix and match what uniform they wear it ceases to be a real uniform.

    One would think that citizens would appreciate a more professional appearing police force, kind of like if you look professional you’re more likely to act professional?

    If you check around you might find that the “LAPD” style uniform is the standard of many top notch law enforcment agencies in America, a long way from “retro”.

    All in all Ms Atkins has made it clear she thinks she should be queen, or fuhrer. With her comments she will have a difficult time dealing with the council, the mayor, and the city manager in any type of effective way.

    Did you think the majority would vote for Kuhnel and Manns rather than Newman?
    The people I talked with thought Atkins showed considerable restraint in her My Word piece by not allowing the Arkley crew to pull her into the mud. She simply said it is her duty to speak up when she disagrees and to represent constituents that don’t appear to be represented by the other council members. Note that she didn’t name past council members or go off on the various topics she disagrees with (as they did in the other My Word) .

    Sometimes I respect HiFi’s alternate point of view. But he’s really full of sh**t to say anyone got “slaughtered” in past elections.

    The progs got complacent, and even cocky, after the likes of Glass, LaVallee, Atkins, Kerigan, Lovelace, etc won seats. They too probably thought they were slaughtering the old guard (Arkley, Flemming, etc) and it would just continue into the following elections.

    The reality is a pretty evenly divided electorate and one that does not vote along party lines. They’re all Democrats, right? Since it is Humboldt County, you can always point out that the existing councils and boards did not produce the jobs they talked about in the last election
    I guess I shouldn’t bother, and let the HiFis go into the next election thinking they have it in the bag. Then they’ll wake up Wednesday morning and wonder what happened.

    It looks as there are some out there that think those in charge should be able to create jobs from out of thin air. This area is better off than most as far as employment, doesn’t anyone listen or read of what is going on nationwide? Every time someone comes up with an idea for creating employment there is a rallying cry to put a stop to it due to it not being up to there approval. No i am not in favor of a Wal-Mart in Eureka, but will not be surprised to see one before long. Target was not especially wanted but it is there and seems to be doing well. I remember when K-Mart was bad mouthed and not wanted by the vocal.
    As for uniforms, yes, they should look professional on the job. Being allowed to dress as they please should not be tolerated.

    Try Smart Voter.Org

    Marian Brady ran against an incumbent city councilman, Larry Glass, the darling of the left SHE BEAT HIM BY FIFTEEN POINTS!.

    Frank Jager ran against a former Mayor and beat him by eight points!.

    Virgina Bass, disparaged by the left, ran against a long term incumbent Bonnie Neely AND BEAT HER BY ELEVEN POINTS. Bonnie also was the darling of the left.

    Nobody from the left even bothered to run against Lance Madsen who, despite Mouse’s lies to the contrary, received almost 97% of the vote.

    Yes, the left was slaughtered in city/county races in Eureka last year.

    “Slaughtered” in your dreams Hi-Liar.

    Over half the potential voters are either not registered or abstain!

    It takes immense courage to speak out against a corrupt good ol’ boy system. A corruption rarely reported by local media, hence, people still think supporting sprawl and big box developments is “conservative” when “radical” is more appropriate considering the massive unfunded public subsidies they require.

    Standing up firmly for herself against the Gang of Four won’t guarantee Atkin’s reelection. But, if she doesn’t, she won’t stand a chance.

    The Radical-Reich’s attacks against Atkin’s passionate, on-target, free-speech is good news.

    Hi Liar, I like it. You need to find a way to include twisted. When the truth is not presented to the public before an election, you get the results mentioned above, in glowing terms, not glowing truth. Hood winked is a good term for it. Of course if you believe Hi Liar you believe only the left’s shit stinks. Do we have to rub the rights nose in it to show them the error of their ways? You know they would swear it was Chanel #5.

    Monitor, I hope you keep posting. I hope you post everywhere. In fact if Linda Atkins doesn’t hire you as her campaign spokesman I will be glad to put you on my payroll and will put you in TV commercials endorsing her.

    For every time you open your mouth you will cost her votes.

    There’s no question Atkins is intelligent, courageous, and well-spoken at council meetings.

    Every time Hi-Gassbags hammer a courageous underdog, it builds more support for them.

    Thank you.

    “Atkins is intelligent, courageous, and well-spoken at council meetings.”

    I agree. Which makes her recent and very public tantrums all the more strange.

    Hyperbole, sophistry, lies and personal insults from Hi-Liar are certainly not strange.
