Earlier Chapters:



  • Government Cheese

    Well. That narrows it down….

  • This is exactly what happens when you deal on drugs and dope. It is written down in the Bible and God’s teachings for quite some time. God bless all involved and let’s all pray this ends soon with peace and love. Amen

    • Explain please quotes too

    • Wait, The bible talks about drugs? I know it mentions alcohol, which is a drug. but I can’t remember any scripture that addresses other drugs or drug dealing. Help out a fellow scholar, and point me to the passages. Thanks.

      • According to Exodus, the pillar of fire provided light so that the Israelites could travel by night during the Exodus from Egypt (perhaps at the time of the 18th Dynasty; see dating of the Exodus). … When the pillar of God moved forward, the people of Israel would pack up their camp and follow behind it.

        • they were eating mana which the birds dropped from the sky in the morning and only lasted one day except on the sabbath

        • WTF does that have to do with growing cannabis?

            • 17 Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.”

          • Cannabis is grown to be sold and often to small children who develop a problem and often do oxy or heroin after the drugs stop working. This happens often in Southern Humboldt. Some politicians want to make drugs legal. I raise my children in the church and make them study the Bible every day and night. They do not date and will not be permitted to engage in anything “gay” or such sins against the father. The Bible says [edit] is a sin and we strongly follow the Fathers teachings. Thank you to all who worship.

        • Could’ve been ‘shrooms…. hmmm. But by this account, the Mana was a good thing, right? There wasn’t any “dope dealing” going on.

          • do we know each other

          • Why were they growing the dope? To give it away?

            • They are dope dealers. Plain and simple. The lord does not take kindly to such grave sins against the father .

              • though shall not judge… it’s a medicine to some (and reverses tumor growth, seizures, diabetes, etc) and “drugs” to others…

                Judge not lest ye shall be judged.


              • Cite a passage or STFU.

                • Thank you! I hate wild unsupported claims. Post your sources or admit you are just passing on unverified information, i.e., bullshit.

                • I believe Andy is a troll…

                  • Why am I a troll? Simply because I believe in the Lords teachings? Many people who have low self esteem and use drugs find warmth and love within the Church and good book. Amen and please do not call me names Kym. I am simply a follower of the lords teachings and my church in Southern Humboldt. Amen and God Bless you and your family Kym. I know you guys have had very difficult times this year and perhaps your brother will seek help from the church. Amen

                    • Andy, my dear..don’t screw with me. I’m in pain, stressed out and have discovered the peace that comes with banning people who choose to be jerks.

                      I provide a place for different opinions but people trolling in order to irritate others…I don’t have time for that any more.

                    • Genesis 1:29

                      “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”

                  • Nailed it, Kym

      • when the New Testament refers to “sorcery” in it’s condemnation of it, it uses the Greek word φαρμακεία or pharmakeia. It’s pretty clear that this, in addition to all the admonitions recommending a sober mind, reveals Jesus ain’t down with Humboldt’s herb of choice.

        • Jesus wasn’t a grower. God loves growers 😁

          Hebrews 6:7
          For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God.

          Proverbs 15:17
          Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it.

          Genesis 9:3
          Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.

        • Except that Jesus’ second most famous move was turning water into booze.

    • You’re full of it. Bible characters are depicted getting drunk and huffing frankensense and myhr to get high, with no godly anger directed at them. When Noah gets drunk, god punishes Ham, not Noah. Both Jesus and Noah made wine. Some scholars point to Ezekiel 34:29 as being a direct reference to hemp. And as far as theft goes, the book of Numbers is full of examples of Moses and crew stealing from, kidnapping, murdering and raping their neighbors. Just another self-righteous bible-thumper who doesn’t read his own book.

      • Like you actually read the word

        Sounds like you read just the cliff nots and didn’t actually read it either. Your just regurgitating what you heard and copy and pasted from the internet. If your actually read it you would not have regurgitated it in that order.

        • I don’t have to re-read the entire bible to know when someone is lying about its contents. If you have a substantial critisism, let’s hear it. If you don’t like hearing what the bible ACTUALLY says, change religions.

          • Glow In The Dark Humdum

            Everybody knows it’s called The Devil’s Lettuce because it’s bad. You hippies can fake reports of health benefits, dope growing can make paper, a Marihuana is peaceful, and the rest of the excuses made so you can rip down forests, pump creeks dry, commit violent crime, it’s just hippie lies.

            The greatest lie ever told to the modern world is a Marihuana isn’t harmful.

    • Who’s to say the person was dealing drugs or dope? I surely didn’t read anything of that nature in the article. This is whats wrong with God fearing people, lil to hastily passing judgment to say the least. What’s your Bible say about that?

    • talk to your kids

      are you are a sinner for going to the doctor then?! hello!? what about opioids and vaccines?…can anyone tell the difference between adderall and cocaine? another one? healthy lifestyle, clean nutrition matters nothing, vs. taking synthetic pharmaceuticals? what’s better, chemically derived “zolof” or cannabis? .. and the broken logic chain goes on…. I pray for those that are brainwashed by the exploitation of the intention of the higher force! get a grip on your logic……..I pray for the minds that are being held hostage by the “religious industrial complex ” and to wake up to follow the true light of good…god bless. is ok to question your destiny and not rely on others to dictate you to follow darkness. is ok to be wrong, you are in charge, and be good!

    • Is that before or after the part where Jesus condones slavery and treating women like cattle?

    • I agree with your comment about drugs and dope but God created weed.

    • Peace love guns and heroin

  • These are the teachings of my pastor who is a bible scholar. These people engage in dope growing and are a Parasite on our community. May God bless but the drugs in Southern Humboldt must stop. Kym I do not appreciate constantly being deleted based on my religious beliefs. Amen and god bless all.

  • I feel like this has been covered before but why release a description if there’s no skin color attached? Are we looking for a 6’1” Asian? Or billy joe bob from the pville trailer park?

    • The must have the wrong skin color or they would have said. Leave it to the professionals they have got this handled and don’t need help from twenty thousand eyes.

    • Evidently you didn’t get the memo. The rule is simple: If it’s a white male, release the skin color to the public. If it’s anybody else, don’t mention the ethnicity.
      If someone of multiple ethnicities commits a crime or does something perceived as wrong, i.e. George Zimmerman, then call the “perpetrator” white. If someone of multiple ethnicities does something noble or perceived as good, i.e. Barack Obama, extol his virtues and point out he is black (or whatever other ethnicity they may contain other than white). Got it? If anyone questions the double standard, shout the word RACISM or OPRESSION loudly. Then pat yourself on the back cluelessly.

      • Ah, yes. The myth of reverse racism. The poor, oppressed white man.

        • Reverse racism is a stupid claim, Rollin wasn’t claiming that, he was pointing out the agenda behind the double standards of American identity politics.
          If you don’t see the double standards, your either not white, or your white, but hate white people and you don’t identify with your own community.
          Rollins comment is completely accurate.
          We know you don’t care about us, and we are learning to act as such.

          • Projection. You couldn’t possibly be more into your own facile, skin-deep identity.

            • Whereas people who refuse to acknowledge the schizophrenia of their positions can only attempt to belittle and insult because they have no reasoning to offer. This is what happens when a misguided attempt to discourage racism can not be called stupid because noticing the stupidity is then itself declared racist.

              It comes from using victimology rather than principle to determine right from wrong. A minority complains that publishing their race as a suspect leads to innocent people of the minority being abused. The authorities agree and stop identifying a suspect by their race if they are a vulnerable minority. On the other hand, using race as an part of identifying a suspect that the same authorities feel compelled to use it when it does not involve a minority being put at risk- a white race person. For some reason, the idea that catering to the demands of the sensitive race in this case not be said because strangely enough catering based on race is itself racist.

              Oh the dilemma! Acknowledging this race based policy would still lead exposing the minority to racism. So what to do? Saying nothing seems to work as long as there are people to attack others who point out that this “not saying” is equally racist. And there is where such commenters come in- they ensure that no one mentions the insanity. A Confederacy of Dunces in the real world.

              • Dude, you’re the only one making this about race, THE PERPS WERE WEARING GLOVES AND MASKS. You are literally obsessed with skin color.

                • And liberals.

                  Guest ignores the birtherism-russia-propaganda-spreading-conspiracy-monger-in-chief who is backed by his favored party because they “do no harm”.

                  But leaving race unspecified will surely be the bane of his liberal-based hate today. Likely concluding these cops and Kym are all suffering liber-mania.

                  The cops are libs.

                  Kyms a lib.

                  Its a huuuge liberal fuck up going on that makes his life so unholy.

          • White fragility…

            • White fragility, lol
              Thank you for setting that up.
              The solution to white fragility would be white pride, or white power.
              which would you prefer?
              Please don’t force us to go old school.

        • It isn’t reverse racism, it is simply racism against “white” people, and it is far from a myth.

      • For heaven’s sake, I don’t want to mess up a good conspiracy theory….but my guess is no one saw the suspects’ skin which is why it isn’t mentioned….Along with the color of their eyes, if they have tattoos, or whether they were wearing boxers or jockey shorts….

        But sure, it’s a conspiracy…. Law enforcement isn’t interested in catching anyone. They would rather only describe white people as suspects because most of them in this area are… What color?

        Come on guys, we are bigger than this. Everything isn’t about race. Many of you have repeated this over and over again. Please apply it to yourself. And instead of looking for a conspiracy, imagine the reason law enforcement didn’t describe the suspects’ skin color or the type of underwear they were wearing might be because law enforcement didn’t know.

        • 🕯🌳What I think everyone is mad about is that in the past the person’s ethnicity would have been posted and the race would have begun. But they got screwed. 👍🏽🖖🇺🇸👁

          • And you think that you have achieved victory by silencing issues of race. But then it did not exactly work now, did it…

        • Kym, if you were right the authorities should say race unknown, not just leave it blank selectively. Approving of such convolution does not make anyone “better.” It makes them silly. Because this has been an official convention often enough to be a reasonable issue to raise. It would help if it is reported by the press in cases where race was omitted from press releases but the suspect turned out to be white.

          • Ah.

            It must be a liberal-something at fault if your speaking up.

            How does leaving it blank not imply race is unknown?

          • Well, I care exclusively about socks and this article doesn’t even MENTION the perps socks! What color were they? What material were they made of? Why are you persecuting people who care a lot about socks, Kym? This is very important, dammit!

        • IF they were also wearing turtle necks, and sunglasses, it is possible that all of their skin was covered. The masks alone would not be sufficient. It seems very unlikely that no one saw the color of their skin but it is possible.

          Of course, if their eyes were exposed then their skin would have been as well, and tattoos are much easier to hide than skin color. Comparing skin color to tattoos or underwear is asinine.

          • Another person who disagrees with someone by saying they are asinine….

            Perhaps you’re right…sometimes I do think I’m an ass to let people tell me I’m asinine on my own website…

            The point is that law enforcement is not deliberately hiding the race of the suspects. In multiple other cases they have named the race of the suspect when they knew it.

            In all likelihood, the victim was frightened and could not identify the race of the suspect. We know that happens over and over. Eyewitnesses are bad at giving information especially when they are frightened…

        • Just for fun, once again I looked up the description given by law enforcement when they are looking for suspects. Because I have limited time, I just did the last two months.

          Male adult, possibly dark-complected, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall to 6 feet tall, medium build, wearing dark pants, a dark thermal-type long sleeve shirt underneath a dark short sleeve shirt, a dark baseball cap and a white mask over his nose and mouth.
          White female adult, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall, heavy build, with black hair, wearing a purple jacket and blue jeans.

          The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 30’s, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt or jacket with the hood up and black pants.

 The driver is described as a white male adult with short brown hair last seen wearing a black t-shirt. They are also looking for his female passenger who has brown hair with blonde highlights.

 He is described as a Hispanic male, slender build, with short dark hair, last seen wearing a black backpack, a dark colored shirt and blue jeans.

          Suspect is reported to be a WMA with blue eyes, stands 5-08 to 6-00 tall and has hair to his shoulders.

          a white male in his 40’s wearing all dark clothing and carrying dark backpack.

          I remember a number of suspects being named as black and Native American and even an occasional Asian suspect.

          Law enforcement is not avoiding naming race…

          • I have ascertained possible suspects from the article, Donald Trump and XI Jinping. Since by the article we can’t rule out Orange or yellow, although Obama’s height is slightly closer. It’s impossible to narrow it down anymore. Go check it out sheriffs. Or Kid Rock, or maybe prince Andrew. Bradley coppers height is a exact match. Although so is mine, should I go to the police station?

      • Zimmerman is a white man as far as I can see

    • It’s called a mask and gloves super hi technology stuff, they try to keep it secret so no other thieves catch on.

  • Adam & Evil Adam Had the weed — Evil took it 😂😂😂😂

  • I wonder where he got the blued automatic hand gun.

  • BRICKA BRACKA FIRECRACKER SHICK BOOM BA trolls talking shit HE WHO HA ….thank u very much!!!!!

  • All I got out of this was “blue steel…handgun.” The world is ready for zoolander 3 saying saying

  • 🕯🌳And it all comes from the middle east. 🛐

  • Cannabis Is Legal

    Cannabis is legal.

  • Worst comment section ever. Christian trolls, race baiters…. if you don’t have anything smart to say just keep it to yourself or go to the thunder dome!

    • Government Cheese

      “Two men enter! One man leave! Two men enter! One man leave!

    • I’ve got something smart to say: I wonder if all of the pot farms that get robbed at gunpoint are right wing nutjobs if they want to exercise their right to have firearms for protection. And what about the right wing nutjob that killed the church shooter in Texas this weekend probably saving multiple lives? I guess the citizenry that demanded the repeal of the law that made churches “safe spaces” in Texas are also right wing nut jobs. Betcha there’s some groveling libs that awfully grateful for right wing nutjobs right about now.

      • If you want to live in a paradise of guns where everyone is shooting each other in churches you should look into Texas. That’s exactly what most normal people don’t want, I think. I think it’s a sad reality that people are applauding a church shootout.
        And… isn’t the second amendment about defending yourself against a tyrannical government? What does a bunch of armed people in church have to do with that? It’s a twisted NRA logic that you have bought into. Buy more guns. Jesus must be proud of Texas!

        • The natural right to self defense should go without saying. Your comment is exactly what Madison feared would happen if there was a BOR; they would be used to limit People’s right rather than restrict Federal overreach. It is why 9 and 10 are included in the BOR:

          Amendment IX:
          “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

          • That’s a reach but if that’s what you want to think, then ok. I see the BOR and the whole constitution as designed masterfully for changing as the times change. And when the society is more endangered than protected by an enumerated right, that right has its limit. Like the old wine sample of screaming ‘fire’ in a packed movie theater.
            I think (and many other do as well) that the danger of joe public owning an automatic weapon or other mass killing device is weighed against the public right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and that should be the limit of the second amendment.
            Many civilized countries live with little to no gun violence and this is why: they have gun laws that make sense.

            • If a single demographic in a few urban areas are removed from the gun violence statistic the USA rate of gun violence is very low… lower than Canada.

              And you can most certainly yell “fire” in a crowded theater, especially if there is a fire. The issue is inducing mayhem if there is no fire. It’s not the speech that is criminal, it is the call to action. That trope is consistently misused.

              “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Benjamin Franklin

            • It was your old neighbor that did this. Wish the cops would get him.

        • Government cheese

          Willow creeker. You need to post this outside on your lawn. Stop hiding behind those who are willing to use guns! If guns were outlawed from citizens as you wish, than this society would be full of dead people raped, pillaged and murdered by criminals. Nope, law enforcement won’t save you in so hum or Texas for that matter. The right to defend yourself by lethal means should be every law abiding citizen of this “free” country. Here’s your sign willow creek….

          • You have a very dark world view. So you don’t imagine the world would be better if everyone didn’t have automatic weaponry?
            I own several guns- older family hand me downs- a few revolvers and hunting rifles and a browning 12 gauge. I hunt every year. I respect guns and was taught how to handle them and how to hunt at a young age. I just don’t think we need more guns or more automatic guns around. And they should be harder to get. I have lots of international family who live in very peaceful non gun owning societies and you know what? No one is raping and pillaging them. There aren’t roving lunatic homeless all over the streets either. We are doing something wrong in this country. Get out a little more and leave your dark Sohum bubble- and see how a functioning society works.

  • Very bad comments!
    You make me embarrassed to live in a small town with potable water and electricity!
    No studies cited, no data, no statistics,
    Nothing worth reading whatsoever but back and forth from the fringes.

  • Kym.. I really don’t understand why you deleted my comment about Lead bullets causing stupidity.. it didn’t insult anyone but Trump, Ted Nugent, +. the NRA, and it didn’t promote violence.. non toxic bullets are way better for the people and the Environment.. what’s wrong with that?

  • While we attempt to make some sort of sense of $64 and the entirely wacko county leaders positions … the feds seem to be backing down. The raw numbers are bad but better.

    I still can’t find a reasonable “legalization” anywhere in America though. They are hungry after the tax revenue of retailers and the fraudulent application fees to become “legal”.

  • Kym, I hope things get better for you and whatever personal hardships you are going through. Until then I will personally pray for you and have my church and pastor pray for you and your family for a wonderful 2020. God bless you and your beautiful family and great website. You are a wonderful person for allowing us all to speak our minds even if we don’t always agree on everything. God bless and have a wonderful new year with the Lord in your heart and mind. Amen

  • This guy I know worked for a guy who grew a lot of weed. One day he went to check on one of his sharecropper situations and looked into the greenhouse. The plants were dry and moldy and had mites and webs. He went into the house and asked his sharecropper how the plants were. The guy jumped up and said, “They’re great man!” The jefe walked over to him and punched him in the face.

    • I’ve been considering listening to kmud news tonight.

      happy New Years to all!

  • 🕯🌳🖖Happy New Year. 🇺🇸🛐

  • Gosh Kym, I don’t know how you can deal with all the opposing “opinions ” that you so fairly post !
    Especially the personal attacks that really have no place in any public forum .
    I don’t know you personally but believe you are one of the very best things going on in Sohm !
    Happy new year Kym .

  • Dearest Andy,

    If you are for real, please know your children will rebel ecstatically!
