Local Union Asks Public “DO NOT PATRONIZE LOST COAST BREWERY”
shortlink here: http://wp.me/p38Pt0-ke
mnemonic here: http://urlet.com/choice.parent
According to a leaflet obtained by this blogger outside of the Eureka Theater tonight the United Association of Plumbers & Steamfitters is asking the public to refrain from patronizing the Lost Coast Brewery.
At issue is the claim that the Lost Coast Brewery has contracted with potentially substandard out of area contractors to build the new brewery.
The union claims that Lost Coast has contracted with Hansen-Rice out of Idaho, who has subcontracted with Cone Plumbing of Yreka.
Time for the real reporters to get busy.

Grassroots Getdown: May 10 benefit for Rhizome features circus, bluegrass, folk, + DJs
By Editor on May 3, 2013 in Blog, Events, The Rhizome Info-Shop
Come on Friday May 10th for a fun-filled night of circus performance, Humboldt bluegrass, local folk music, beers, DJs and dancing till late with friends old and new.
Sunshine and Yellabird (raucous folk)
Mad River Rounders (Humboldt bluegrass jams)
DJ Derail (Liberation Soundclash)
and circus performances by Circus of the Elements.
+ $2 Mad River Brews! (with ID)
$5 at the door gets you in to the party and helps support your local grassroots community!
All proceeds will benefit the Rhizome Infoshop, a radical lending library and community resource center in Eureka. We offer anarchist books and zines, free Internet, and low-cost copying.
The Rhizome Infoshop is inside the Ink Annex (47B W 3rd St in Eureka), 1 block south of the Eureka Co-op in the 3rd Street alley.
Bring your friends and come party for the cause on Friday, May 10th at 7:00 pm @ the Ink Annex in Eureka. See you there!
Please donate $20 or whatever you can for PARC’s May rent and bills. We haven’t asked for money donations for a month or so because we were blessed with enough to cover expenses. Now, we need more help.
Also, WEPAY, which is the online donation transfer service we are/were using appears to be pulling a paypal trip on us. Meaning, they are asking for “more information”- don’t know whether that means they will require a government tax ID number or something official like that. We don’t have one of those and we don’t operate as part of the non-profit industrial complex (not saying that non-profits are bad, but the whole non-profit system and the culture around it are problematic for grassroots struggles and projects). The WEPAY thing might be no problem, but we don’t want to risk a frozen account (where you can put money in, but they don’t us access it!)
So, if possible, for the time being, please send or drop off a money order, cash, or check.
To donate to PARC, please:
Address Money Orders to Kimberly Starr
Address Checks to James Decker
and Cash or any of the above can be mailed to:
P.O. Box 5692
Eureka, CA 95502
or dropped off at PARC between 9:30am and 9:30pm every day (directions below). Please call first!
All donations go to the operation of PARC: rent, bills, printing paper, copies (through the Rhizome Infoshop in Eureka), laundry (towels, donated clothes and blankets), toilet paper, dish soap, hygiene supplies for people who need ‘em- the necessities. We are quite resourceful, and all PARC’s work, organizing and resources are volunteer and donation-based.
PARC is in the Q Street alley between 3rd and 2nd Streets, Eureka
From the south, go past the Eureka library on 3rd Street, go down 3rd Street toward the Samoa bridge, take a left on Q and a right into the alley (There’s a green house at the head of the alley where you turn right) Once in the alley, you will see (on the right) the PARC sign, yard, carport, Mumia banner, and front door.
From north of Eureka, take a left onto Q Street from the 101 South (also called 4th Street). Continue on Q Street for a quick moment after the 3rd and Q Stop sign, take a right in the alley. (There’s a green house at the head of the alley where you turn right) Once in the alley, you will see (on the right) the PARC sign, yard, carport, Mumia banner, and front door.
Thank You- for supporting, working toward and dreaming of a just, caring and healthy world- where no one need fear a system that operates to hurt and destroy. Stay strong and aware.

I think we should consider changing the city council election system before the next election cycle.
We should implement a primary election for City Council in Eureka in June with a run off in November between the top two vote getters.
This is the way democracies operate in the modern world.
I know that this is not quite the ranked choice voting that the Greens support, but it is simple and it works even if its not so elegant a solution. With a top two run off (two round system) there will be no more spoilers in the Eureka Council elections, and I would think that both Democrats and Greens and independents would favor that.
I ask if possible for Linda Atkins to bring this simple proposal forward for the council to act upon now. If they fail to act I would be interested in anyone willing to circulate an initiative to implement this simple but much needed change to bring basic democracy to the Lost Coast. This could be a big tent effort for any lovers of small “d” democracy.
I think as an initiative it will be a very easy sell to the voters. It will be no problem getting signatures for it to qualify, given a crew of a dozen volunteers or so.
And just think, no more spoilers.
have a peaceful day,

UPDATE: When I attended the Eureka City Council “Visioning” session last friday I engaged Mayor Frank Jager in conversation during a break. It may interest you to know that our Mayor is a proponent of full legalization of marijuana. In fact he is welcome to grab a legalize it sign and come stand next to me on 420 on the boardwalk. Mostly the Mayor and I disagree on mostly everythng but on this we see eye to eye.
have a peaceful day, Bill

I’m going to make 10 or 15 full color posters of this nice Don’t Tread On Me flag above and I will give them away free to the first people who show up and want one.
I have about 20 of these nice black and white “Freedom” posters too, for the signless. They will be free to anyone who is pro-cannabis.
If Safe Access is your issue I have a few signs for you too! Just meet me after 330 at the foot of F St. First come first serve! Come down and represent!
The Respect Our Rights poster is most likely the one I will carry. But then I am a radical, I actually believe that cannabis users have civil rights, constitutional rights and human rights that extend back in time before any government. I have a few of these to share as well.
Some of us will want to remember our sisters and brothers who have been cruelly and wrongfully imprisoned over the Herb in neoslavery in for profit corporate prisons. Yes we can share a couple of these too.
SET OUR PEOPLE FREE!
Want to Grow the Economy? So do we, and we have a few signs.
On Saturday April 20 I am going to go to the Eureka Boardwalk with a sign at about 3:30 in the afternoon and I hope that five or six of you nice people join me to demonstrate for herbal rights and herbal freedom. Commencing @4:20 pm we will stroll the boardwalk between F and B sts, with our signs. I am only asking for a few people to come out and represent, I am not trying to compete with or harsh anyones buzz. I am not asking for civil disobedience. This will be for Eureka residents who want to represent for Medical Marijuana Rights, general herbal rights, Full Legalization of Cannabis, those who represent for the spiritual use of cannabis, or those who want to legalize industrial hemp, for anyone who is pro-cannabis but whose civil rights are not being respected. Lets be a big tent. This will be for Eureka residents who want to represent but have trouble getting to other venues, but of course it is open to anyone who lives outside Eureka who is pro-cannabis.
We will meet around 3:30 at the foot of F St. At 420 we will start strolling peacefully up and down the boardwalk with our signs, for about an hour. Let’s have fun, lets meet new friends, let’s organize. I welcome other diverse community organizations to come to the boardwalk and table! I want to meet people who want to get some dispensaries in Eureka, lets get it done.
Would be nice to have a drum circle or two, just saying.
This does not have to be a big thing, but it is an important thing.
I am just thinking about this and it is evolving. I welcome your input.
Is there anyone who can design a flier for me? Something readable quarter page (4.24 in x 5.5 in)
I will play a few songs too between 3:30 and 4:20, including of course “Free the Weed.”
How about a few poetry slammers and a few more street musicians? It’s a Big Boardwalk.
email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be there. I just need five or six people.
Thank you everyone!
have a peaceful day,
On March 30th,three participants in a “Candlelight Vigil for the FirstAmendment” were arrested on the Humboldt County courthouse steps, asserting Constitutional rights in the face of a recently passed“urgency ordinance” that seeks to criminalize every day activity such as sharing food, setting down a bag, or holding a protest between 9:30 pm and 6:00 am.
The courthouse has historically been the county’sforum for free speech activity in Humboldt County for over 50 years. The trial of the 3 candlelight vigilers, Peter Camacho, Kimberly Starr, and Amanda Tierney,is the first test of the courthouse curfew, and the jury has been in half-day deliberations since Tuesday.
There have been patient supporters in the courtroom and hallway, and we are super grateful for their presence!
We will inform you as to the decision(s) coming from the jury when we hear them!
Candlelight vigils every night on the courthouse steps since March 27, 2012 continue. 9:30pm to about 11:30pm.
