• Supervisors approve polarized Coastal Commission nominees.
• Tree planting volunteer day planned near Mad River. There’s also a Hammond Trail cleanup day.
• The McKinleyville Press always prints a lot of community news about local kids doing well in school, people winning awards, etc. You may have noticed the McKinleyville Matters column, which is a potpourri of local news. That column dates back to at least the 1970s, maybe earlier. I was told that the late Mrs. Rameyused to write the column. Later, Mrs Wilkins wrote. The column appeared in the Arcata Union, which went out of business in 1995 – the year before the McKinleyville Press was launched. If you have a family member celebrating a birthday, anniversary, etc., send us information for the McKinleyville Matters column, which is now compliled by McK Press staff. Let’s keep this tradition going.
• By the way, tucked in that column is some interesting information about Horizon Air and its decision to stop serving the McKinleyville Airport. It would appear that the airline has contradicted itself on more than one occasion.
• On the opinion page there’s commentary about the situation at Clam Beach.
