  • The storage unit prolly had insurance on the items.
    Good work and +1 to the [edit] that recovered the stuff. Hope they return it to the owner.

      Lots of people want to.some donate it ,before it is stolen.

    • If you are serious then go see that new store in Fortuna on main street, they do buy sell and trade and they are fair with you too which is rare these days and their store was clean and there wasn’t the usual overpriced junk thats not worth anything lol. I think it’s called Something Old Something Nouveau, Check it out I was glad I did.

  • Thank you, Kym, for toning down Mr X. His rants are serious downers sometimes sounding just shy of psychotic and he is almost always the 1st to respond.

  • More drugs off the streets.And maybe the person’s who’s items taken get some back,that would be super cool!!!

      Coyote and ant populations increase with selective extermination.eliminating top dog frees up females.squishing ants apparently makes an ant hungry and reproductive.cause and effect only seems backward.they could sensor me for saying that.
