Let us remember the men, the women and the children, our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, our sons and daughters who are huddled under a bush shivering in the rain.
Please join me in contacting Eureka Mayor Virginia Bass and requesting that she use the emergency powers vested in her to open an emergency shelter in a city facility for our homeless during this rainy period, and during the rainy periods to come this winter.
Mayor Bass Office: (707) 441-4200

It is the responsibility of our government to care for the vulnerable among us.
I would like to thank Highboltage for reminding me of those that don't have a roof to worry about blowing off. This storm looks like it will drop more rain south of Eureka than north. Clean out the drains and get ready. One thing we can almost count on is that there will be pleanty of room in the Eel River to hold the rain from this first big storm of the season.
