Sheriff William Honsal has been Sheriff for a couple of months and has already made positive changes. One such example is that he is already responding to the concerns about correctional deputies and working conditions at the jail . He gives his staff opportunities to shine by including them in press conferences like Lt. Luna and other staff; he referred me to Sgt. Jason Benge for a very informative article. Sheriff Honsal does not hog the limelight for only himself. The same is true for Chief Watson and Captain Stephens. All these three men help behind the scenes without wanting any attention and recognize their team.
Sheriff Honsal is accessible and believes in transparency, even if I call him with questions or criticisms.
We are very lucky to have local experienced leaders and staff in law enforcement, and HCSO and EPD are definitely my favorites for a reason. I deal with them on a regular basis through work as well as living in Eureka and see the challenges they face doing their job in extremely difficult conditions.
My readers are discerning so this post is more geared to the anti law enforcement, sensational agenda driven, "so called media" and local drama stirrers that I will continue to call out regularly. "Real media" does not lean towards critical articles of one group while ignoring the shennanigans of their advertisers, organizations and people they like.
Biased local " so called media" gets away with this because of certain advertisers and several self identified "movers and shakers"; the ones that do have money, both on the left and the right. They do not support the few local, independent media sources who actually report news because these advertisers and "supporters" prefer not to be called out on the "good ole" status they enjoy.
Why aren't most of the people with the funds in this town investing in the few quality media sources we have or donating to programs or creating jobs that help majority of this community get financial stability, housing, get services like rehab to change their life? It is the same few people with money (or not extra money) donating or helping others.
Public shaming does not work on certain people because they have none.
Support your local, small businesses; support your local independent media; support those advertisers that allow freedom of the press to report news.
I would like to thank my past and present advertisers, not only for their business, but for being self made and caring members of this community and because they allow me the independence to report news; even when I have been critical of them.
Self made men and women realize the value of hard work, loyalty and lift up others.
