Humboldt Growth Slowing?

At least over this last year, according to the Times- Standard. Doesn't look like we have to worry about turning into another Santa Rosa, at least for a while, if this becomes a trend. Whether we get more, or less, people over the years to come is anyone's guess.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times reports more people moved out of the state last year than moved here from other states. The population still grew, though, as a result of births of current California residents and the influx of immigrants from other countries.

Libertarian though I may be (or as some suggest I claim to be), I've never been an open- borders libertarian and I find it a bit disturbing that so much of our population growth comes from immigrants of other countries.

Ironic, coming from someone who lived in Mexico.

I'm sure it might seem that way.
