  • Food for thought

    Good! I hope if this is the newly renovated hotel that they stay on em and don’t let it turn back into one. Nothing but sketch people stay there again now it looks like. Thanks FPD for not letting them take back over and keeping the shifty owners in place.

  • I’d call them sewer scum but that’s too nice a name for those people, excluding the child.

  • Did the meth mites land on Cullen’s forehead?

  • He has a bad case of the “Weasel Measles”

    Yes that seems to be the remodeled Motel next to the Chevron gas station on Main Street.

  • I hope the nine yr old son gets to a better home.

  • Motel next to the Chevron has always been a drug den even though it has been remodeled now it’s a nicer shit hole,but kudos for hitting that place now go to Floyd Hoisingtons up on rohnerville ,and Fred Singleton tweekers hole shit hole abandoned vehicles garbage if you live in tuna you know what place that is .theread is tweekers going in and out of the fire captain that got killed DTF needs to visit those places. Loaded to the hilt syringes. I bet they are bummed they didn’t get to fire it.,but the jail is full ,so they are going to get o/r d

  • Didn’t even have to read the article and I knew which motel it was. Any time of day you can drive by and know people are high. Fortuna City council needs to do something about it. Everyone in town knows about this place.

  • Awesome
    Keep up the good work

  • More shit bags

  • The damn owners are in on it that place has been a shithole my 35 years in the area newly remodeled = insurance scam because it’s still a shit hole

  • It is so so sad to see lives thrown away to drugs and absolutely heartbreaking breaking when children are put in the middle of the mix.

    [edit] These days criminals just aren’t scared of sentences, judges, and cops. Would you be afraid of cops?? No, their hands are half tied- any time they scratch someone they get sued, charged, and de-badged. Thats what we get for crying foul everytime someone gets hurt by a cop. For every thousand criminals there is like one bad cop. Pretty good odds Id say. Givem a break. Still hate cops? Yeah, just think of how many ripoffs, home invasions, and multiply the number of dirtbags in front of Ray’s in Garberville by X 1000. How do you like it now?

    Humco and Del Norte sure have taken a massive downturn in the last 7 years. Shitbags and crime explosion. If youre honest with yourself, there is no way this greenrush has been a benefit.

  • Three words: Holiday Inn Express!

  • Always blame the Canabis .blame the meth and the lazy .
