Hey, do you remember about this:

https://kymkemp.com/2024/05/04/humboldt-county-provides-key-cannabis-data-on-cultivation-permits-watershed-capacities-and-tax-challenges/

If you remember, I sent emails to the state agencies John Ford said were not providing the Planning Department any detailed information, how the number of permitted commercial cannabis cultivation growers were degrading water quality in critical watershed habitats, rivers, creeks and streams in Humboldt County. Well I heard back from those agencies, sent them to Nichole Norris. And its what I thought, someone is lying, and its not the other state agencies. I doubt if Nichole will call him out on it, but she does have the information if she ever needs it…

Yes- I remember that you commented that you were going to contact the state agencies. It sounds like you have .. Thank you! I hope to see a follow up article by Nichole. She does some good work here. And i imagine she does not appreciate being lied to!

🤔🧐,

Yes, of course….

Child’s play…

The painfully obvious, Hare Krishna/John Ford connection…

Elementary…

Why didn’t I connect the telltale dots sooner…???

Now that you mention it, it totally sticks out like a sore thumb…!!!

It explains SOOO much…!!!

🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️😁🤣😂😅😆😉

Are there still Rajneeshes?

Out in the street in Berkeley, necklaces made from Lifesavers with a pendant featuring his photo…

Like the guy in the t-shirt printed: “Fuck Yoga”…

You got your religion, I got none at all…

Me too w/ the no religion…or a very small very personal religion. But I do like the kirtan. You can appreciate the chanting w/o diving deep into the belief structure. Music and singing, vibrations are real. Those mental abstractions about the meaning of it all… I am too busy for indulging in such thngs…

Those guys went to a big ranch in Oregon during the mid or late 80’s. Hare Krishna follow Bhaki yoga, meditation, dance and chanting, alike in this festival. Eating meat is disallowed, as is dining in restaurants, due to the belief that food retains the consciousness of the cook—ingesting food prepared by an angry chef will make the eater angry. The people putting on this event are not saying where the money they are raising is going.

Its too bad people in Southern Humboldt cannot celebrate the culture and consciousness of local indigenous native people instead…

There was a beautiful two day event celebrating the Wailaki’s this last weekend. https://kymkemp.com/2024/05/18/eel-river-wailaki-hosts-first-annual-big-time-event-celebrating-native-american-culture/ Love isn’t like a pie. You don’t get less if someone gets some. There is room for multiple cultures to celebrate.

Hmmm…

Was Ed being facetious, or was that comment of his just a great big dose of coincidental irony…???

Is he just out of the loop…???

Interestingly…

There was even a brand spanking new drinking fountain there…

And people were having a great time…

But, don’t tell Ed.

That might upset him…

Just for the record, though, I didn’t witness anyone actually drinking from it…

Hopefully if he sees this, that will put his mind at ease…

Funny sometimes how new comments can mash up with old comments…

Like an old beer drinking friend of mine used to say…

“I don’t drink water…

Fish fuck in it…”

It does not surprise me people with any common sense don’t drink from outdoor drinking fountains. Plus, when was that water ever tested by the health department, as required by DEH for each and every community event? See letter for testing requirements:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M3nVYSMKTwTlVBs45FeSK4YyfeXrAcns/view?usp=sharing

DEH has no records that testing is being conducted.

Then you need to ask the ratepayers of GSD, was it OK they paid over $18,900 to provide the Park one 3/4″ metered water connection for a single drinking fountain?

And how much was that new drinking fountain?

What does NOT surprise ME is that the news of a drinking fountain at the “Big Time” Community Park Event has upset YOU…

It also does not surprise me that the only one I have heard pissing and moaning about any costs involved is you…

Are you even a GSD ratepayer, or are you just sticking your nose into GSD ratepayer issues, where it has no legitimate business…???

As far as any “DEH testing records”, have you forgotten already that the event was just this last weekend…???

Tests take time Ed…

Chill out a little…

A per your link, they might not even be required or necessary…

And as far as how much the drinking fountain cost, or who actually paid for it…

…how much of that is, also, any legitimate concern of yours…???

The only thing about that, that would be any concern of yours, is how much you have elected to contribute…

Can we safely conclude that that would be, “none at all”…???

(See what I did there…???)

Yes, in the last 23 years since the Park Board took over ownership, stewardship and operation of that 462 acre parcel, its the 1st time the Park Board has allowed any kind of celebration and ceremony by 1st nation native people and their own historic connection to the land and mother earth. So Thank you Park Board.
