Thanks to Heraldo for the heads-up, the blog’s temporary location is right here.
This could be a big boon if they do it right. Here you have potentially minute-by-minute coverage of crucial events with a full news department behind it. Obviously they have to sell their papers so you’ll get the depth of the stories there. But this could one more step to bringing Humboldt County into the 21st century. Online access to court case files, like just about every other county, should be the next.
Hank’s got several posts up already, including this follow-up to the Grannie Greenjeans/Coop controversy, such as it is. And there’s some election finances stuff which reports me as “retired.” Sorry Hank, not quite ready for shuffleboard. But I wanted to know who else donated to Quilez, and Sonia Bauer is the only other contributor mentioned. Obviously she would like somebody on the Commission to second her son’s motions to discuss something beyond the old guard agenda. Also, Quilez could obviously use some money. There will be a fund raising party in Redway on Sunday afternoon where you can meet him, and another one earlier in Miranda. Contact the campaign for locations.
Anyway, looks like a great addition to the local blogosphere. There are already comments mounting.
