  1. Oooh, the Humboldt Mirror is going to go bonkers.

  2. I agree there needs to be a balance between economic development and our prestine and beautiful coastal environment, but there needs to be a compromise to ensure job development, the securing of the middle class, the wonderful edcuational tool of the library and our educational system.

    Closing schools is not a positive recruiting tools for prospective businesses, even environmentally friendly businesses. When will the Board of Supervisors address such concerns and not provide lip service to all members of our community not just the party line.
