Mattole PTEIR, Endeavor Docs Online, C/R Pool Closure and… (Updated) – March 13, 2008

The Mattole Restoration Council is promoting what it says is an innovative solution to complicated land management in the Mattole Watershed.

A Program Timberland Environmental Impact Report (PTEIR) is described as a way to ensure environmental protection while easing “light-touch logging.”

Mattole Watershed

The Mattole PTEIR will be our main segment on the March 13 Humboldt Review.

For our first segment, we’ll offer an update on what we’ve learned this week about the Arcata Endeavor’s proposed new facility on St. Louis Road. Apparently the demand for information from the City has become so intense that it will do something that it has never done before – put staff reports online on the City’s website.

Our guest for this segment will be City Councilmember Alex Stillman.

For our final segment, we’ll take a deep breath and descend into the deep end of the College of the Redwoods swimming pool mystery. It’s leaking rather majorly, and C/R spokesguy Paul DeMark will tell all. Hopefully without any waterboarding.

Special Announcement

Kevin here. Friday I gave notice as host of HR, and KHUM is accepting inquiries by possible new hosts. For information, call Mike Dronkers at (707) 786-5104. If you want some idea of what’s involved in actually doing the work, feel free to contact me at news@arcataeye.com.

Rio Dell, Arcata & Eureka Youth Protection Act(s), Arcata Endeavor – March 6, 2008

Rio Dell. Without getting into the jokes and plays on words (many of which the residents themselves are fond of telling), that’s a community that needs something.

A lot, actually – more business investment, fewer vacant lots downtown, some recognition for its natural assets. But it has a a lot, too.

Maybe what it needs most is an image, an identity other than being a half-considered blur as you pass the Pacific Lumber factory. Did you know that Rio Dell is “The Warm-Hearted City?”

Fortunately, some very astute individuals are on task with charting Rio Dell a new direction. And for the March 6, 2008 Humboldt Review, we’ll have them on.

For our main segment, guests are Rio Dell Mayor R.L. (Bud) Leonard, City Manager Nancy Flemming, PlanWest Partners’ George Williamson and Economist Michael Hackett.

For our first segment, we’ll ponder the Arcata and now, Eureka Youth Protection Act(s) with proponent Dave Meserve.

Our final segment will be on the new proposed site for the Arcata Endeavor, and the Endeavor’s hopes for a Community Development Block Grant to acquire it. Our guest will be Endeavor Interim Executive Director John Shelter.
