Blue lights can show support
Great Idea. Count me in... Letter to the Editor:
There have been quite a few letters to our local newspapers discussing the indictment of Eureka's previous police chief and lieutenant and the desire to publicly show them our support. May I suggest that we show them our support by displaying a lighted blue lamp in a front window of our homes until the officers' ordeal is over? By displaying the lighted blue lamp, the officers will see public support wherever they go in this community. In this small way, we can show support to those we rely upon to provide for our safety.
Rose's note: How to contribute to city's defense fund for David Douglas: Send checks made out to the City of Eureka, with David Douglas written in the “for” line, to City Hall, 531 K St., Eureka, CA 95502. Councilman Larry Glass said the checks would only be cashed if needed.
