It’s Time for Eureka to Pay Reparations to Indigenous Peoples

The Eureka City Council has just shamed itself with a retraction of a mild apology to the Wiyot People for the Indian Island Massacre.
We will deal with these racist cowards at the ballot box in November.
In the meantime, it is time for the people of Eureka to bring forth an initiative to pay the Wiyot People reparations for the crimes that have been committed against them and in partial recompense for lands that have been stolen from them.
I propose as a starting point for talks the sum of one million dollars per year to be paid directly to the local Native Peoples.
Let’s get together soon and draft a simple initiative to do this and gather our signatures. It is the right thing to do.
I know Linda Atkins personally and she is no racist so I assume she was buffaloed by some Hobson’s choice presented on short notice. But she can speak to that.

Sometime preceding last night’s 6.9 earthquake here in Eureka California there was a big flash boom explosion heard throughout Eureka and the surrounding areas, including the Manila peninsula and Myrtletown suburb to the east. Here in central Eureka I heard it, it was loud enough so it got me out of bed, looking out my window. It sounded to me like a car crashed right outside my window. Other people blocks away have described the same feeling of being near to it. So I will infer that it was some kind of air burst. But who knows for sure. The conspiracy theories here have already started.
For me it sounded very loud but my best description would be the sound of a big green trash dumpster dropped from 10 stories or so right outside my window. I don’t remember the flash but I was almost asleep.
From a careful reading of the reports and my own senses I do sense that the actual physical location of this flash bang was a bit to the east of me, perhaps down near the Shell station on 5th. Reports from east of that location tend to report it as being to the west.
Theories include earthquake lights, naval weapons testing offshore, sonic booms, assholes with household chemicals, fireworks, stolen flashbangs from military or police, meteorite, aliens. Fun stuff. Or a transformer blowing up. But that usually happens with very windy conditions or very hot conditions. We had a very windy night four or five nights ago but last night was pretty calm.
Of course it could have been a big lightning strike. Occams razor. If that’s so there might be a record of it with the meteorologists. We have had a wet soaker rain front come through here the last couple of days, but I have not seen or heard any thunder or lightning.
they are talking about it here:
“We just got in with a load of fish and we saw a whale dying with a large open chunk of flesh about 17 feet long. Weird stuff.”

via times standard:
Kerrigan confirmed today that he has filed paperwork that allows him to raise money for a race against 4th District Supervisor Virginia Bass. He has also cited his intention to run against Eureka Mayor Frank Jager.
”I am considering running for supes,” Kerrigan said. “At this time, I’m not ready to make a final decision on that.”
According to the Humboldt County Elections Office, Kerrigan has filed a candidate intention statement. He has not declared his candidacy or paid the filing fee. The deadline is March 7. Bass has formally announced she is running for reelection.
County Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich said Kerrigan could potentially run for both races because they are on two different ballots.
”The mayor’s race isn’t until November,” Crnich said. “The primary supervisors’ race will be on the June ballot. If he was to run for supervisor and not win, he could run for mayor of Eureka.”

update suspect arrested http://lostcoastoutpost.com/2014/jan/2/freed-murder-case-suspect-gary-lee-bullock/
this is breaking news I am going to investigate there is a crowd gathering in front of the Church at 6th and H Eureka. I live two blocks away.
update 10 am jan 2. From a block south this morning traffic is normal on H st, its not blocked anymore. If there are any folks left in front of the church I can’t see them, there are a couple of trucks blocking my view. The HCSO Crime Scene Van is gone.
update 220 pm
There is a crowd of 50 or more in front of the church, St. Bernards. The H st is blocked off between 7th and 6th, and there is crime scene tape all around the church. Humboldt County Moblile Crime Lab on scene, multiple EPD officers, Mayor Jager, most of the Eureka City Council, EPD Chief Mills all there.
Report is that the priest was shot and killed perhaps sometime this morning, maybe inside the parsonage just south of the church. There is an EPD standing watch at the open front door of the parsonage. I don’t know the priests name, or if anyone is in custody. There is at least some media on the scene.

The Eureka Police Department is investigating some type of violent crime at St. Bernard Church. Few details have been released. (Jose Quezada/For The Times-Standard)
Eureka Police Chief Andrew Mills confirmed during a press conference this afternoon that his department is currently leading a murder investigation at the St. Bernard Church rectory.
Mills would not identify the victim, but Mayor Frank Jager confirmed that he is Rev. Eric Freed, who was found deceased in the building after he failed to show up for 9 a.m. Mass.No suspects or persons of interest have been identified in the case, Mills said, but he assured his department would expend every resource to conduct a complete and thorough investigation. The cause of death was not released. More information to be posted shortly.
Police have cordoned off the entire church property with crime scene tape, and Mills said investigators with EPD, the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and the California Department of Justice remain on scene investigating.
