Vet's Park Gets a Facelift

Today, the Jim Demulling Peace Park which has been at the center of the porta potty controversy received a visit from a cleanup crew of the California Dept of Corrections and Rehabilitation (known locally as the cons.) Trees were trimmed and the place was cleaned.

Coincidentally (or not), the fence was also removed; whether this was something the county approved of is unclear.

    We all need a little respect … The inmates would prefer to be known as “Fire Crews”.
    And they did a fantastic job of trimming up and clean up of that community asset.

  • I’m sure they would like to be called fire crews and when they are done serving their time I will stop calling them cons. And they did a great job cleaning up the park . A rose by another name and all that

  • oh,,,,well,,,but,,,, they are known locally as” the cons ” with much affection and much props,,,,,, for the hard work they do. they clean up and clean out many spaces year round, most that we do not even see, which is why I took the opportunity and got some pictures of this one…….I have nothing but RESPECT for the work they do,,,,,we were bragging about them, please don’t try to take away from that.

  • I am glad the fence is down. And as for the con crews, they were great during our fire in 2003. Very sweet, hard working and respectful. Of course, if they cause any problems they go back to ‘real’ jail. I was told that the crews don’t have any violent offenders, mostly just drug related charges.

  • I AM CURIOUS…….WHY DO ALL THE SWAP CREWS HAVE TO GO TO EUREKA?……..DID SOMEONE FORGET THAT THERE IS A HUGE PART OF THE COUNTY, NORTH AND SOUTH, THAT CAN BE REPRESENTED? I HAVE DONE MY TIME WITH SWAP BUT ALWAYS WONDERED……IF YOU BREAK THE LAW IN SOUTHERN HUMBOLDT OR WEITCHPEC, ……WE CAN COME UP WITH SOMETHING BETTER I AM SURE. JUST AN IDEA – SHOOT…..MAYBE MAKE THE RAILROAD RUN AGAIN!
