Dunk Joins Libertarians?

I doubt it, but I was surprised to see Director Jeff Dunk, of the McKinleyville Community Services District, be the sole vote against a feasibility study in regards to fluoridating Mckinleyville's water.

Remember, that back during the election for the MCSD seats, I mentioned here that Dunk was the last candidate I would vote for if only because he suggested the MCSD should provide even more services than it already did.

Well, maybe I'll take that back. Maybe not. We need to keep in mind that this was just a vote against the feasibility study, not fluoridation itself. Still, sounds like Dunk's on my side of this issue.

I was at a recent Fieldbrook community services meeting where a county health offical appeared asking them to support the use
of Floride. When asked if there should be some public comment before the board voted to go ahead, there asnswer was not nessesary.
By the way, the county is going through a 20 year update to the general plan. There are hearings once a month at the board of supervisors chambers. The Arcata libs, and the college students are flooding the place, pushing the most radical alternatives. The average Humboldt citizen is not being represented.
Last night there were calls for banning all gun fire, even in rural areas because of the noise element. Calls for restricting people to one car per household, banning all new roads in the county, and much much more.
Unless you want to wake up in Marin county, it would be a good idea to show up once a month and voice a bit of reason.

Not taking comments on the Republican/Thompson post? Why?

Don't know how that happened. I didn't meant it that way. It's fixed now. You can comment.

At that meeting public comment was against Fluoridating the water. Infants can't drink it. People with certain diseases can't drink it. Costs a lot to get out of the water once it's in as it doesn't evaporate like chlorine does. This was actually an agenda item and I was surprised that more people didn't attend. When Dr. Lindsey appeared there were lots of people there for it. Quite a few of those were from Arcata (their water already has fluoride as well as Eureka). I don't go to Arcata and tell them what to do, why should they come to McKinleyville and tell us what to do?
