Should the City of Eureka Open a Public Owned Gas Station?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on July 2, 2014 by highboldtage

Given the obvious in your face corruption in the local fuel supply I say YES!   A small town in Kentucky just voted to open a city owned station because the people there face the same kind of corruption that we do here in Eureka.   Its time to fight back.


The town is Somerset Kentucky and they seem to be a high fuel price island just like Eureka and Arcata.

PEACE GATHERINGS (here and around the country)

From: Gay Gilchrist & Janelle Egger

Troop movements within Iraq have prompted some U.S. government officials to propose an immediate response to those movements. Other officials and pundits are proposing a wider and greater response.

Last weekend, many of us enjoyed wonderful oysters on the Arcata Plaza, fish in Trinidad, and baseball in Arcata.
This weekend, let’s tend to the schemes that might destroy the possibility of our children and grandchildren enjoying these delights when they are past military induction age. Join us for PEACE!

This Saturday — June 21 @ 12 noon
Humboldt County Court House – Fifth & I Streets, Eureka

Stand with Women in Black


Sing, Discuss, and Wave Signs
Bring Enthusiasm and Signs for Peace!

If you cannot join us on this Saturday —
Vets for Peace Weekly Vigils
Fridays @ 5PM
Eureka Courthouse and Arcata Plaza (Southwest Corner)


Women in Black Weekly Vigils
Saturdays @ 12 NOON
County Courthouse, Eureka


Today, it has become increasingly likely that the U.S. government will once again take military action in Iraq. It is urgent that anti-war forces mobilize to tell the Obama Administration that the people of this country completely oppose any new war on Iraq.

The ANSWER Coalition is gearing up for such efforts, and is calling for nationwide demonstrations on Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21, as well as emergency actions the day U.S. bombing starts, in the event that it happens before these dates.

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld should be arrested and prosecuted for their criminal acts in Iraq. It was the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq that destroyed the country and brought about the current crisis. There is nothing the Pentagon can do with more air strikes and destruction to undo that, or bring about peace now.

We in the anti-war movement fought too long and too hard to prevent and end that illegal and unjust war. We cannot sit by idly today when the Pentagon may be about to open a new chapter in its history of death and destruction.

Lance Madsen’s Dying Declaration Spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E For Eureka Klown Kowncil

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on June 14, 2014 by highboldtage


Not just incompetent, but criminal?

via Times Standard:

Madsen states in the affidavit that he repeatedly questioned Day-Wilson about where she got the memo until she named Councilwoman Melinda Ciarabellini.

Madsen writes in the affidavit that he later met with Ciarabellini, and that the councilwoman told him that she didn’t know how the memo had been distributed among city staff. Madsen states Ciarabellini said she had given a copy to Day-Wilson over concern that the memo might spark litigation by those named in the document.

When contacted by the Times-Standard, Ciarabellini declined to comment.

Madsen’s affidavit also recounts his conversation with then-Community Development Director Rob Wall about the email, which is also referred to as a “hit list.” Madsen’s affidavit states that Wall told the councilman that Day-Wilson provided both him and Personnel Director Gary Bird a copy of the memo at a meeting, and that Wall was later approached by Day-Wilson and asked to say he read the document after seeing a copy on her desk while waiting for her. Wall refused to comply, the affidavit said.

The declaration and an accompanying six-page investigative report, both of which Madsen apparently made a top priority during the last months of his battle with lung disease, were delivered by certified mail to the city on June 5 by Daniel Cooper, Madsen’s probate attorney. Together, the documents shed new light on an apparently toxic environment in city hall and a rift on the city council. And they raise serious questions about Day-Wilson’s honesty, ethics and job performance.

“Mr. Madsen requested that I provide this information to the city council after his death so that its present members would follow through on the investigation his declining health prevented him from completing,” reads a cover letter to the city from Cooper. “Mr. Madsen’s request also directed that I allow his family ‘private time’ to grieve and adjust to his passing before this affidavit was delivered to the city council.”
Madsen, who resigned his post with the council in December due to his prolonged battle with lung disease, was in hospice care when he signed the affidavit on March 6. He died April 5.
