The Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group presented an overview of Trinity County’s recently obtained grant to study an East-West rail route. Will this be the study that finally drives the stake through the vampire’s heart? I’m all in favor of studies. They’re nonpolluting, for the most part, and they keep State and County employees off the street. So I say, Study ON! Study it to death!! Good training for fledgling Associate Governmental Program Analysts, or whatever they’re called these days.
Anyway, the recent program was a preview of the study. The only concrete fact that stayed in my mind after the meeting (and I’m still thinking about it) is this: there are NO incorporated cities in Trinity County. None.
Charlie Bean provided the following two videos of the presentation.
HERE is Part One.
And HERE is Part Two. Many thanks, Charlie.
Well, all this talk of Points Eastward coincides with the appearance, however ephemeral , of WILLOW CREEK PEACHES at Murphy’s. They had some last week that were about the size of tangerines and really ugly, but God were they good! Eating-over-the-sink good. Hopefully they’re be back soon. And all this talk of Willow Creek peaches reminds me of the several happy years I spent as a member of the Eureka Kiwanis. Kiwanis used to have a powwow during the summer hosted by the Willow Creek Club that everyone looked forward to all year. They had a pit bbq, excellent food and everyone had a great time and everyone went home with something. I came home with a lug of tomatoes so big and ripe I carried them around to the neighbors that very night. And I don’t like tomatoes! but these were fantastic.
One year my big shepherd jumped into the river and couldn’t get out because he was so weighed down by his wet fur. Ben Doane of the HCSO waded in and rescued him. (Thanks, Ben! I’ve never forgotten that.) I don’t know if Kiwanis still has its Willow Creek barbecue, but go if you’re invited. Hearts are broken and mended, careers are trashed and salvaged and there’s lots of good eating. A lot of the folks I knew from then have passed but I hope the Willow Creek club is still going strong. Good people.
