Courtesy of the WAPO, here’s how your boorish President is representing you. The oaf who claimed that Hilary didn’t have enough stamina to be President rides a golf cart DOWNHILL rather than walk with his peers in Taormina, Italy.   Talk about The Ugly American!  And I’m sure you saw the clip where he shoved the PM of Montenegro out of his way for a photo op.

Eureka’s Food Truck Pod

They call them pods in Portland, hubs in other places. They’re semi-legit places where your local food purveyors can offer their wares without interference. WE HAVE ONE!  It’s next to Mr Fish on Broadway (between Mr Fish and Les Schwab) and the current occupants are Taco El Pueblo,  Yo’Mamma’s Fish & Shrimp and our ninja BBQ maestro SOUTHSIDE MIKE  who keeps disappearing and reappearing.  Right now he’s doing T-F, 11-7 at the Mr FIsh site and Saturdays 12-7 in Old Town.  I had his Southsider,  a tri-tip san that comes with fries for $11.99. His fries are fabulous.

Drop by soon to support our local food truck culture, and our local entrepreneurs.


The Chamber On Life Support

Am I alone in thinking the City of Eureka has its head up its butt?  They can’t afford to spend $100K to keep the Chamber  visitors’ center open through the end of the year but they’re paying  $88K  in legal fees for having kept the public from seeing police videos.

This town needs a Chamber. I, too, was upset when they started playing politics, but they learned their lesson,  or should have,  when their candidate for City council, John Fullerton, got walloped by young Austin Allison. But there has been some unfair criticism, too. The staff is good and they are NOT over staffed. The main problem with the current Visitors’ Center is that its on the wrong  side of the street-  folks traveling NORTH don’t see it at all, and folks traveling SOUTH don’t see it until they’re headed out of town.  Personally,  I think  the current site should be converted to some other use and the Visitor;s Center should be relocated to the currently empty Roy’s building.  They even have parking and  maybe the aromas of the last century will remain in the building for awhile.  

It will never happen,  but we need our Chamber. And their Visitors’ Center.
