That is correct,the heading above is not a typo. Eureka, California, a beautiful small town on California’s north coast, is rapidly headed for an ice age. Within the next 67 years, Eureka will have an average annual temperature of zero deg C (32 deg F), if the trend from the past 18 years (1992 to 2010) continues. The cooling trend is 15.6 deg C per century. The present annual average temperature is only 10 deg C, therefore it will require only two-thirds of a century, or 67 years, to reach zero.

Thursday’s Supreme Court decision in Citizen’s United v. FEC is perhaps the most activist decision of the Supreme Court since Bush v Gore, and might be just as harmful to the nation. There is a way out of this mess, but it will take quick action… In Humboldt County we also know what it’s like to be pushed around by large corporations. In 1999 Wal-Mart spent $250,000 in an attempt to change Eureka’s zoning laws. In 2004 Maxxam spent $300000 trying to recall our District Attorney …
Today, Trillium Solutions finished creating the Humboldt County Transportation Guide. It’s headed for the printer and bound for buses, transit centers, businesses, and social services locations next week.
First, the good news: Myka 9 is touring again, ostensibly in support of his new Magic Heart Genies project, Cardiac Arrest (which drops January 26). And yes, he’ll probably do renditions of “Park Bench People,” and maybe even “7th Seal” for you.
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey aren’t keeping fans waiting too long for a new release, as they are currently recording new music for what will be a follow-up to last year’s One Day In Brooklyn EP. The current line-up of Brian Haas, Josh Raymer Chris Combs and Matt Hayes will release a new album in June, so these tour dates will be the first chance the public will hear a number of new songs.

Sunday, January 17, 2010, Eureka, Calif. (HumboldtOnline.Com) — After having published a number of articles in HumboldtOnline.Com late this week about an impending series of thunderstorms due to hit the area, I find myself looking out the window on early Sunday morning wondering what the fuss was all about.
Living on the outskirts of Eureka, we have yet to see a single drop of rain so far this weekend (I don’t count drizzle as rain), although we were told to prepare for the arrival of these “monster storms” as early as Friday night. Then, the media outlets adjusted their forecasts and told us that the storms would be here on Saturday night for sure. Sunday’s Times-Standard now tells us that the storms will not arrive until at least Sunday. Well, it’s Sunday, and I have neither seen any rain, nor felt the slightest hint of a breeze from the ocean.
It very well may be that the rain will begin falling by the time you read this, but I have to laugh at the audacity of major media outlets in this area that treat predictions as fact, as if they somehow are powerful enough to control the weather itself with the printed word. Our lesson for the day should be, if you want facts, you are much better off looking out your own window than believing what you read in the local, corporate media.
After 22 years in Eureka’s Muni building, earthquake damage has forced The Ink People Center For The Arts (TIP) to relocate temporarily to Suites 36-39 of the Carson Building at 517 3rd St. in Old Town Eureka. This space will accommodate administrative functions, the after school MARZ program, and a small number of classes and meetings, though many TIP programs still need new work space.
TIP is requesting community assistance locating suitable facilities for the following: The Humboldt Handweavers Guild, The Printmakers Studio, Life Drawing Class, Placebo, Rural Burl Mural Bureau, and the Animation Lab. Also needed are a photography dark room, artist studio space, and a display gallery, in addition to several desks, file cabinets, bookcases, and a couch.

January 13, 2009, EUREKA, Calif. (PRESS RELEASE) — Estimates of damage caused by Saturday’s earthquake continue to be modified as officials gather information from cities and unincorporated areas of the county.
In the unincorporated area of the county alone, county roads suffered $2.5 million in damages, primarily on Mattole Road. Additionally, the preliminary estimates are that nine county buildings suffered between $10-15 million in damages.
The public is strongly urged to report any damage they may have suffered as a result of Saturday’s earthquake. Because the Governor has proclaimed that a state of emergency exists in Humboldt County (including in our incorporated cities), it is imperative that all damage is accurately and completely recorded.
Reporting damages helps ensure that the County and local cities quantify damages that may be eligible for assistance from state sources. It is important that accurate damage/ dollar figures be reported. Even if an individual does not expect to seek out assistance from the government, or even if an individual or business has already made repairs, it is critically important to report the value of the damage or repairs. Again, for the County and local cities to be eligible for assistance from the state, it is essential that all damages be reported. This is one more way we can come together as a community to ensure we are helping our neighbors.
