Thanks to all who have emailed with thoughts for Worth Dikeman. All have expressed universal sadness at the tremendous loss caused by his firing.
He was the glue that held the office together in the last four difficult years, the one who people went to went they needed advice, had legal questions, or were wrestling with a difficult case. His eternal optimism, sense of humor and exceptional moral character will be sadly missed.

It is also a safe place to reveal the problems, and the truth about Paul Gallegos.
Much of what has gone on has been allowed to go on because too many stood silent - out of fear, mostly.
I encourage you to speak out. Here, and to the editors of the North Coast Journal, Eureka Reporter, McKinleyville Press, and the Arcata Eye.
