Sara Bareilles, Humboldt’s well known singer, introduced a new music video to accompany her new LP The Blessed Unrest. The video features her song “Brave.”
The lyrics, the dance, and the charming characters peppering the video offer an upbeat message of honesty and self-acceptance. (“Show me how big your brave is…Honestly, I want to see you be brave.”)

KMUD, our independent and local radio station, is $65,000 short of making their goal this spring. Many of the volunteers at KMUD have committed to bringing in $500 each to help make up the shortfall. I’ll be chipping in to Terri Klemetson to help support this wonderful news source in our community. If you can’t chip in, can you share this post? Maybe one of your friends can help.

Breaking news …
Tomorrow is the last day of KMUD’s Spring Pledge Drive, and despite being $65,000 SHORT of our goal of $125K, we have decided not to extend the drive.
There are about 150 DJs and talk-show hosts at the Mud, and many of us, just in the past few hours, have already committed to raising $500 each to push us MUCH closer toward that goal. In fact, if each of us were successful, we’d be there. I’ve got 344 Friends on FB, and if each and every one of you donated $1.50, I’d be there!
Please, if you can spare a little change for one of the remaining non-corporate and commercial-free sources of news and entertainment, won’t you donate it to our community radio station?
You can donate online securely right now by going to the KMUD.org website, or you can phone the station tomorrow (Wednesday) with your pledge, at 1-800 KMUD RAD (800 568 3723).
And remember, you don’t need to have the money now; a “pledge” is simply a promise to pay your donation sometime within the next month or two.
A thousand THANKS for sharing whatever you can.
(You could help us out a tiny bit more by sharing this message with your friends, too!)

Eureka Police Dept. Press Release:
The Eureka Police Department is pleased to announce the graduation of one of its sergeants, Stephen Watson, from the respected Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SLI). SLI is an intensive 8-month program (consisting of eight 24-hour sessions held approximately every four weeks) “designed to stimulate personal growth, leadership, and ethical decision-making in California law enforcement front-line supervisors.” Sergeant Watson graduated with SLI Class #323 on March 29, 2013 in Sacramento, CA.
From the website of the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) concerning SBSLI:
“Designed and implemented in 1988 through the efforts of California law enforcement professionals and top educators and trainers, the SBSLI is an intense program based on experiential learning techniques. Students are challenged to learn new ways to resolve issues through group and individual work.”
“The curriculum takes students through an analysis of management (planning, organizing, directing, etc.) and leadership (inspiring, challenging, developing, etc.) and how each discipline compliments the other. The course progresses from self-evaluation, to interpersonal evaluation, to organizational relationships.”
“The Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute provides first-line supervisors with a high quality training experience allowing them to fine-tune their leadership skills. The curriculum provides a forum for personal growth and development of qualities necessary for effective public safety leadership.”
The motto of Class #323 was Ductus Exemplo: “Leadership by Example.”
Sergeant Watson was hired by the Eureka Police Department in May 2005. He is the former supervisor of the department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit (POP) and is presently assigned to the Field Operations Division where he supervises a patrol watch.
Sergeant Watson would like to thank EPD Chief Murl Harpham for his commitment to the personal and professional development of the leaders in his department and for the opportunity to participate in the challenging SLI program.
