    Dear Editor, Now that the Southern Humboldt Community Park Board (SHCP) has circulated their Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for public and agency comments, it is mandatory under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and required the SHCP (project applicant) respond to those comments that raised environmental issues.

    Reader encourages witnesses to animal abuse to speak up

    Dear Editor, I hear horror stories about men brutally beating dogs, and stories of other animal abuse in Southern Humboldt. If you see abuse, don’t turn away, speak out against it. Freedom of speech is for more than just yelling and swearing and being foul-mouthed. Use it for promoting kindness and well-being. If the abuser does not respond immediately to your admonitions, at least a seed has been planted. The abuser will remember the reproof, then when others speak out against...

    Reader remembers a time when park was just a park

    Dear Editor, I can remember (I was 10) my brother, mom, dad and many other friends and neighbors in the community helping to create what would become Tooby Memorial Park in 1967. We lived right across the river from Tooby Park, 18 years before the sand & gravel-cement plant started operation and 14 years before the county built the new bridge. We felt so lucky living next to Tooby Memorial Park, never thought in a million years it would be controlled by a private...

    Are vaccinations safe? If not, what can we do about it?

    Dear Editor, On June 29, 2015 the California legislature passed SB277 and on June 30, 2015, Governor Brown signed this most stringent vaccine mandate in the United States. This new law fully went into effect on July 1, 2016. It removes exemptions that used to be available with the already existing mandatory vaccination laws. In the recent past, it was possible for parents to sign a special waiver form exempting their children from getting vaccinated. They could do so for...
