Over the past few years, they have greatly expanded their space, stock, and lowered their prices. They include many organic and gluten free items. I love the people you encounter in the store, both employees, and other customers. It is a great community resource. Most especially I appreciate the...

    Hospice feels blessed to have your support The Heart of the Redwoods Community Hospice 11th Annual BBQ & Brew was a wonderful event and a great way to spend a summer evening with family and friends. The weather was fine, the food and drink delicious, the entertainment top-notch, and the mood mellow. It takes a lot of people to put on an event like this. Rather than a long list of names we just want to thank everyone who participated. Whether you parked cars,...

    Time to protect redwoods from burl poachers

    Time to protect redwoods from burl poachers Thanks to early conservation efforts, vast areas of prehistoric redwoods have been protected from logging where they survive in our state despite generations of an industrial economy. These redwood forests are now under threat and help is needed if we want these ancient trees to continue into the future. Poachers are encroaching into protected government and private land to steal the burls from these trees. By removing...

    Hemp, hemp, hooray!

    Hemp, hemp, hooray! I am at times encouraged and dismayed at the debate on the legalization of cannabis. I’m encouraged about the time/effort many are putting into the effort, and dismayed by the narrowness of the debate in certain areas. I am more in agreement with ‘Woods’ and Amy Gustin on their take on the situation(small farms, environmental awareness of impacts) and I also applaud Steve Dodge of the Emerald Growers Association and his attempts...

    Letters to the Editor

    You all sent a strong message of appreciation From my last e-mail with Tim Olsen: On October 8, 1871, the lumber town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin was struck with a five-mile-wide wall of flames, borne on tornado-force winds of one hundred miles per hour that tore across more than 2,400 square miles of land, obliterating the town in less than one hour and killing more than two thousand people. As a child my parents took me to the memorial in Peshtigo,...

    Safety on July 4 appreciated

    Safety on July 4 appreciated I’m sure this letter represents more than just my own heartfelt appreciation to the agencies and individuals who provided safety supervision in Shelter Cove over the 4th of July weekend. The Cove, a beautiful home to many residents, and a sanctuary for numerous wild animals, is usually quiet and peaceful, but as the July 4th holiday approaches, I begin to feel anxious about the imminent danger caused by fireworks and...

    We won’t make enough money

    We won’t make enough money The average 2,300 square foot size suggested by Fish and Wildlife for a cannabis garden is only viable now because prices have not yet bottomed out and no one is paying half their income in administrative and tax expenses. It is not “greed” to want a better than subsistence life. And what young family would not want to work a little harder and avoid such a subsistence life? The following facts, figures and estimates of...
