Republicans draw Dems to dinner

Humboldt H

[Guest post from Tokyo Rose.]

There were a number of Democrats at the Republican Central Committee’s Annual Dinner on April 10th, honoring Muriel Dinsmore. Some of them clearly came in support of the Republican of the Year, while others seemed to be more interested in promoting themselves.

Current Eureka Mayor, Virginia Bass, presented a proclamation to Muriel and praised her as a classy and gracious lady. The other supervisorial candidate, Jeff Leonard, and his dad, were also present, though noticeably uninterested in Virginia’s presentation of the City of Eureka proclamation.

Current Supervisor Jimmy Smith came with a proclamation for Muriel and was warm and gracious to all.

Kathleen Bryson, one of the four Democratic candidates for District Attorney, was also in attendance. She, like both the Leonards, spent most of the evening working the room for money and votes.

The only notable Republican candidate was some earnest young guy, whose name I can’t remember, challenging Congressman Mike Thompson.

Rob Arkley gave the keynote speech. It was moderate in tone and he actually praised Nancy Pelosi for her political skill. Though he doesn’t support the health insurance reform bills, he acknowledged her success in getting them passed. Give him credit for being willing to recognize talent.

Tyson ruling appealed

Humboldt H

Eureka City Manager Dave Tyson won’t be getting off so easy.

A court ruling dismissing Tyson from a major harassment lawsuit against him and the city has been appealed by attorneys for former EPD dispatcher Tawnie Hansen.  The appeal was filed Thursday.

Humboldt County Superior Court judge John Feeney dismissed Tyson from personal liability in the case in January, but cleared the way for Hansen’s case to proceed against the city.

The lawsuit is based on an anonymous blog allegedly run from inside the Eureka Police Dept. that peddled salacious gossip about an alleged affair between Hansen and Police Chief Garr Nielsen.  Both have denied the rumors.

Hansen alleges that Tyson failed to prevent the workplace harassment by pursuing an over-broad “global investigation” that effectively buried her complaints, and that Tyson aided and abetted the harassment.  She is seeking $1.4 million in damages.

An earlier lawsuit was settled when another former dispatcher, DeeDee Wilson, agreed to pay Hansen $10,000 following allegations of libel and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

STATUS REPORT: Marina Center

Humboldt H

Real-Clean-up The controversial Marina Center development is being stalled by the project applicants who are stonewalling the California Coastal Commission.  Such was the report from city staff to the Eureka City Council Tuesday night.

City Planner Sidnie Olson assured the council that Marina Center is “not dead” and “will be back.”

City Manager Dave Tyson said the city is still negotiating with the State Lands Commission to resolve jurisdictional concerns over the project location site.

Meanwhile, new bumper stickers are floating around E-Town calling for a real clean-up of the site rather than a cover-up. To get yours send a self-addressed stamped envelope to CREG, P.O. Box 738, Eureka, CA 95502.
