  • I’m good on that thanks! gonna watch the ship sink from afar!

  • Nice gesture. Get the HTA buses from Eureka filled up with the homeless and take them to Garbieville for FREEBIES-oh the joy of FREEBIES!!! Then stop the buses. Leave’m with the rest of the County’s parasites.

  • The above 2 comments appear disdainful of this amazing act of goodness in our community. The tradition of the local veterans hosting this excellent event is truly only marred by the lack of action on the part of our elected board of supervisor’s inaction regarding the Vet’s hall in Garberville.
    Where is our promised (and legally owed) new hall, Estelle?
