Here’s just some of what’s in this week’s paper:
• McKinleyville moves toward local control. That’s right – McKinleyville may take control of its own land use planning. It may also throw a monkey wrench into the county’s General Plan update.
• Measure B passes. This is a big deal. It means that McKinleyville has money to continue operating its Parks & Recreation Department for the next 20 years. It also means that the town can buy land for new parks, build a teen center, etc.
• Seems like everyone agrees that one of the biggest threats to Snowy Plovers are ravens and crows. So how does a plastic fence at Clam Beach protect plovers? And how come nothing is being done to control the plover’s main predators. This gets discussed in this week’s paper.
• Nonagenarians honored at McK Sr. Center.
• Federal and state agencies want more input when it comes to the issuing of permits by the county.
• It’s baaccckkkkkk! Code Enforcement.
• Special meeting Wednesday to discuss parks in McKinleyville.
• Al and Sarie Toste receive the McK Chamber’s annual Azalea Award. (A very deserving couple indeed – Jack)
• Gardening Inspiration with John Frederick. Also, there’s a big sale at Miller Farms and there are guest speakers.
• Hank Sims, formerly the “Town Dandy” in the North Coast Journal, opines about railroads and trails in his new column “Lost Coast Outpost.”
• Stop the presses! Local gadfly David Elsebusch loves the VA’s form of socialized medicine. Seriously. He’s used the system and raves about it. He makes a good case for it.
• Geoff Spenceley writes about modern-day McCarthyism, and the bad old days when he experienced McCarthyism.
• As usual, we have a crossword puzzle.
• Take a hike with the Sierra Club
• “Meet the Authors” even in Trinidad on Saturday.
• Supervisor Sundberg to hold town hall meeting for folks in the Westhaven/Trinidad area.
• There’s a really cute dog named Max who needs to be adopted.
• The Sheriff’s Log features your typical troublemakers, idiots, etc.
