Here’s your sneak peek at Wednesday’s edition of the McKinleyville Press. To read the newspaper, buy a copy from one of our retail locations or newspaper rack in McKinleyville, Trinidad, Fieldbrook, Arcata and Eureka.
Here are just a few of the topics covered in this week’s paper:
• Tsunami sirens. Which ones are hooked up, which ones aren’t, and why?
• Supervisors reject call to halt general plan update. This was that big meeting last week.
• Speaking of development, the McKinleyville Community Services District may reaffirm its position on the Beau Pre subdivision. You may recall that in 2006, this project was unveiled. It was in violation of the McKinleyville Community Plan, which had been approved just four years earlier. But that didn’t seem to bother head county planner Kirk Girard. But it did bother the MCSD, which took action. The project is back. Read all about it.
• Arcata pot bust leads to grow house in Mack Town.
• The Trinidad Rancheria is considering building a freeway overpass, a hotel and much more.
• It looks like we may not be voting on the Governor’s proposal to maintain current tax increases. That means vehicle license fees will go down. It also means law enforcement will take a big hit. Look for fewer deputies in the near future.
• There’s an Easter egg hunt Saturday, and much more. We’ve got gobs of community news this week. By the way, the Ladies Club in Westhaven could use some help baking 600 more pies for the Westhaven Blackberry Festival.
• Last week we printed a column from local Tea Party activist Karen Brooks. This week, two separate guest columnists respond to Brooks, one calling her ideas wacky.
• The Mack High Track Team is doing well. Read all about it.
• McKinleyville Little League coverage by Carlos Avelar. We got it!
• Animals need your help.
• This week’s Sheriff’s Log headline: Hooligans, heisters & hooch hounds. That sums it up.
There’s much more. Go buy a copy!
