Something is very wrong.

2:03 - still not restored, Bear in mind this is an editorial that ran on Saturday - gone.

I was linking to it - because for one thing, I would like to know why Bonnie Neely, who as County Supervisor, has nothing to do with the Balloon Track, brought COUNTY Counsel with her to meet with this guy. As California COASTAL COMMISSIONER, she DOES have dealings with the Balloon Track matter. If she was a Eureka City Councilperson, she would have dealings with the Balloon Track matter.

For another thing, he brings up the millions in Prop 65 monies, Baykeeper etc.

3:22 - It is back up - Thank You.

Ballon Track: It’s On


  1. Maybe they will be shamed enough to put it back on line. What, did bonnie get to them or was it paykeeper.

    Listen, if the press won't keep the public informed I hope they go out of business and start collecting unemployment checks. Then maybe they will finally "get with the program."

  2. I am hoping there is a good explanation.

    MAYBE, as it appears was the case with the Ryan Sundberg article, the dirty tricks nasty comments just got out of hand.

    I haven't read through the comments yet to see what might - or might not - be there.

    We'll have to wait and see. But if this is what it looks like, someone should be fired.

  3. I noticed that the T-S editorial blasting Jones & Leonard from attending the Coastal Commission Marina Center hearing in SF was also missing after just a few days.

    What is happening over there?
