Port of Humboldt Bustling With Activity
To hear it from our very own Harbor Commission- dude, Richard Marks, the Port of Humboldt is bustling with activity- ships coming and going- a 61% increase in activity since 1991. You could have fooled me. Then again, despite being able to see the bay from Trinity Street, on the south side of our house, I don't pay much attention to it nowadays.
When I used to fish the north jetty, I saw regular incoming and outgoing ships, of course, but not anymore.
I've wrote here before of being skeptical regarding plans for an east/west railroad as I don't think our bay is big and deep enough to handle enough traffic to make a rail line economically feasible. Maybe I'm wrong about that with traffic in and out of the bay increasing with current harbor infrastructure and no rail line?
Sad thing is, many from The Left up here see increased commerce as a bad thing. You have to wonder if it becomes known commerce is picking up, some of them might try to stop it?
