Humboldt Business Council Site Up and Running

I'd mentioned before that the fledgling group, Humboldt Business Council, had a web site up but it hadn't been updated in some time. I finally gave up checking on it. Chris Crawford just informed me that they finally have their site up and running. If you want to see where they stand on some of the issues, click here.

I have to wonder if HBC will end up being a counter force to the progressive PAC, Local Solutions in some way, shape or form? No mention of candidates or candidate endorsements on their web site, yet, but that doesn't mean it won't evolve into something that deals with them in the long run.

Whew! Right their on their front page they talk about being pro-business over pro-people. Before shopping in Eureka I call a friend to find out if the air is stinky that day because, you know, I value the lives of my family more than saving a few cents on a new spatula. It's funny the group uses trees as its logo instead of smoke stacks.

We need a new name to distinguish true conservatives from the pro-business-no-matter-what groups we have operating in Eureka and Fortuna.

Oh, I don't know. I tend to believe that pro- business IS pro- people for the most part.

Does the air still stink in Eureka? I hadn't noticed. At least I haven't heard any complaints the last few years that I recall.

Yes, when the stacks are running and the wind blows the right way, stink-ee!

Pro-business can be pro-people, but advocating against cleaner air is only a pro-business stance.

These people don't know the meaning of the word "stinky" It's the coffee roasters and the PacChoice seafood place that's stinky, not the pulpmill anymore. Let's also not forget that the bay itself stinks like a mother when the tide is out (or in, it still stinks) and the bums don't help much.

Nah, it's the same damn smell that has always stunk up Eureka. When it happens, you can smell it all along 101 through Eureka. But that point isn't really the point. It's the pollution you're breathing in, whether you smell it or not.

HBC is just another way for developers to push their projects and agendas. Anyone who questions their projects merit is deemed an ememy to their cause, and restricting the growth of the county. Watch out for these guys.

Thank god the Humboldt Baykeeper suit will stop any near future big box developments on the Baloon Tract. Just wait for the HBC to address their opposition to this suit.

I haven't heard of any lawsuit being filed. I have heard alot about someone threating to file one though.

You missed a big one, then. The Humboldt Taxpayer's League filed one over some new development, and the redevelopment folks had a conniption fit. The lawsuit was taken over by a supposedly formerly uninvolved player, Sue Brandenburg.

Check the archives for what happened.

LOL, Fred, you are behind the times, that one got tossed out of court, this "threat of lawsuit" comes from Humboldt Baykeepers, to do a endrun block of the ballon tract land sale. Because the lawsuit isn't filed, yet, it's just a threat.

No, I'm not too far behind the times. Just misreading and thinking of the wrong lawsuit.

"...if HBC will end up being a counter force to the [so-called] progressive PAC, "Local Solutions" in some way, shape or form..."
