Harbor Group Meets Wednesday on Community Sustainability Planning.

From their press release:

EUREKA– Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group (HBHWG) welcomes, Humboldt State University Environmental & Natural Resources Science graduate students Laura Casali and Rob Dumouchel to present the Fishing Community Sustainability Planning (CSP) getting underway in Eureka and Shelter Cove to this month’s No-Host Luncheon. This is a way for fishermen to have a direct impact on the future of the port and their industry. They will layout: what is a CSP, who it will impact, who is involved, who will benefit from it, and how it is being funded.

This forum is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26, at Samoa Cookhouse from 12:30 to 1 p.m. with lunch served from noon to 12:30 p.m.

Fried chicken will be served for lunch at $16 and soup and salad is available for $14. To RSVP please contact Charlie Bean at 707-441-1974 or email

****************You’ll notice the Cookhouse has raised its prices, only by a dollar for the full lunch but THREE more dollars for the soup/salad routine.  Bet a lot of folks will be packing home chicken wrapped in napkins.  See you at the Cookhouse!
