The City Council will decide November 5 what the process will be to fill Lance's seat. This is the time for the chronic City of Eureka naysayers and complainers who like to backseat drive to either act and step in and apply, if they are qualified. A minor detail, they would have to live in the 5th Ward.
It is not easy being a public servant in Eureka, it is not easy making decisions that others without full knowledge feel entitled to criticize.
Lance you will be missed at City Council meetings but I am sure we will be seeing you just as often. Nothing keeps a good man down.
Some of the local media reported on the fact that Firpo won the 2013 Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Outstanding Prosecutor award for her outstanding dedication to holding defendants accountable for committing the crime of driving under the influence.
The Humboldt County District Attorney's office does send out press releases and this was one of them, but what is different from the cases that get covered in the media simply because they are high profile is that Firpo got this award from MADD and that makes it an independent observation.
We need a D.A. who sends out the message that irresponsible behavior has consequences. Especially when the outcome is fatal and costs lives. Firpo has also been impressive in some of the cases she has been in the spotlight lately.
A good politician can win over someone who previously was sceptical, and Firpo did achieve that last night. We had a pleasant chat and I am keeping an open mind.

Marijana elicits strong emotions and opinions and the above ordinance, I feel is a fair one that accomodates the rights of all citizens, especially those like Mr. Duggan and me. The rest of us have a right to breathe fresh air untainted by smoke and weed and enjoy outdoor spaces without intimidation and harrassment from those who think their rights to greed, recreation and easy money supercede others.
The best presentation was from Natural Decadence owners Rosa Dixon and Milia Lando who were courted by Whole Foods. They best exemplified the local entrepeneurial spirit and the go-getter attitude and how certain Humboldt businesses are unique, an asset to showing the world what we have to offer and how local business resources can be used effectively.

I asked some of the 20 -25 age group who usually balk at any mention of corporations why they did not have a problem with Bev Mo? They responded, "because we are alcoholics". We all laughed. Such honesty and humor is a welcome change.
