For some reason, the fonts in the left hand links column are all different sizes, yet they look identical in the template settings. Any advice would be appreciated.
By the way, assuming I set it right, you are no longer required to register to comment.
Update: Thanx to Stuart Elliot for the advice re the sidebar. Amazing what a little “/” will do.
In an opinion piece in today’s North Coast Journal, Rick St. Charles shares with us some very interesting research and prose on the topic of what a grand jury is and how it works. The piece is timely because the matter of a recent GJ report has been raised in the current District Attorney race.
I have a number of problems with the report, not the least of which is its critcism of the incumbent for personnel decisions for which it has no facts other than the perceived impact of a certain firing. Allison Jackson, the firee, has of course been kind enough to provide her theory of Gallegos’ motivation (a cover-up you see) – making accusations of a crime she believes was committed by attorney Ed Denson while citing no evidence other than her own vague suspicions and speculations. The target is of course Gallegos. Ed is just collateral damage.
I wonder if any of the GJ now regret having gone to bat for her.
Update: Steven Lewis will be interviewing Jackson and Chris Crawford on KMUD this Sunday at 1:30 p.m. I assume calls will be taken. The topic is Measure T, but she should be more than willing to answer questions about the grand cover-up.
Apparently, no available building is ADA compliant. Although both the library and the Vets’ Hall have wheelchair ramps, none of the toilets in either bathroom is wheelchair accessible. I am aware of only one wheelchair-bound voter in all of Southern Humboldt, and my understanding is that he has never had to use the restroom while voting. In any case, Garberville voters will have to drive up to the Business Park to vote at the New Wine Fellowship, 1271 Evergreen Road.
The fact that Redwood Drive has been closed for construction prompted some recent conspiracy theories on a show on KMUD. Good news is that Redway Drive will be reopened before Tuesday, so voters will not have to drive the long route. However, for those without vehicles local masseus Lauris is coordinating rides. You can arrange for a ride by calling her at 223-0437, or email me and I’ll contact her for you. Lauris is also looking for driving volunteers.
You can also arrange for an absentee ballot with the county election folk, although I think it’s a bit late to do so by mail.
Update: Redwood Drive is indeed open as of this Thursday night.
Update Friday morning: The road is open, but it is controlled one-lane traffic while construction is completed.
Pardon the pretentiousness, but I’m a kid with a new toy and an online Thesaurus.
I’ll spruce it up a bit around here soon.
(Update: a friend was nice enough to point out my mispelling above. The spellcheck function doesn’t seem to be working, so I’m in trouble. Guess I’ll have to type up my posts in wordperfect then transfer them.)
