◼ The Future of Humboldt's timberlands
The little tiny group of people, pretending to be so many different groups - the "Humboldt Watershed Council/Healthy Humboldt/DUHC/NEC/Baykeeper cabal. It's the same old same old 5 or 6 people. Kinda like the old joke about the Sheriff of the small town who is also the judge, the Mayor, the City Clerk and the Planning Director. Can we just come up with one name for them all?
Ever the master of self promotion:
Jennifer Kalt represents Healthy Humboldt, a coalition of public interest groups working for a County General Plan that provides healthy housing and transportation choices while protecting resource lands and watersheds by focusing future growth in existing communities. She is also a director of the Northcoast Environmental Center.
She's also Water quality coordinator Jen Kalt...Humboldt Baykeeper representative Jennifer Kalt...Jennifer Kalt, EPIC/Resource Protection Associate,/California Indian Basketweavers Association/Native Plant Society/TPZ "expert"
Pretty funny to see Jen Kalt pretending to care about Humboldt's timberlands, part of the crowd who shut down logging - more of that attempting to dictate what other people will do with property they own. It was particularly interesting to see Jen Kalt's spewing her talking points at the meeting at Azalea Hall during the TPZ debacle - where the other people in the room actually knew the facts, and could address the lies.
I suspect someone will be addressing this little attempt to influence the public, an attempt by people who own nothing, who have nothing vested in the outcome, trying to dictate what others can and cannot do. The kind of people who loves to impose rules and restrictions, but not follow them themselves.
In the meantime, the cabal is "balls to the wall" trying to force their will on the people of Humboldt County by attempting to steer the planning process. They are a very, very small group, despite their efforts to look big.
They are no longer going to just get away with it though - people whose lives are affected have begun to speak up and fight back ◼ Determining the path of Humboldt County Without all the phony fanfare, this one is penned by Estelle Fennell... the executive director of the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights.
