  • I like stars too!

    Judging by the sheer number and quality of the comments found here, I would reckon that nobody gives a particular shit about the unions, or Mr Marks…

  • Just take a drive out to the North Jetty and see how well the Harbor District is doing, taking care if the infrastructure around our harbor. The local commercial fishing fleet is not too happy either. I guess bike trails are more important than a safe harbor. Time for a change. Vote out all incumbents. Unions are endorsing Marian Brady as well, if anyone even cares!

  • Marian Brady would be this union members choice. From what I have seen It is time for a major change, vote out the incumbents. Humboldts economy depends on having a usable harbor. Wasting the available funds on useless equipment that is environmentally not usable leaving us with useless junk equipment doesnt seem like the best choice. If you care about our harbor please consider a vote for Marian Brady. Get the facts then vote responsibly.

    • based on the amount of logging that went on this season and the amount of toothpicks heading west, I would say we won’t have anything to export for quite some time. we should have left all the toothpicks for the next generation. the word I hear is that GD hammering it and selling to land trusts.

  • Is he the guy that is sometimes on KMUD in the morning?
