Don't the Arkley's still own half of Eureka?

Sunflower


TheSunflowerSeeds

All plants seemingly have a ‘Scientific name’. The Sunflower is no different. They’re called Helianthus. Helia meaning sun and Anthus meaning Flower. Contrary to popular belief, this doesn’t refer to the look of the sunflower, but the solar tracking it displays every dayy during most of its growth period.

Good bot!

Is spunflower still around?


meadowmbell

Last I heard she got housed in the new Apts in Rio Dell. Haven’t seen her around Arcata in a few years.

When did he pass on?


ZebraHunterz

Fairly recently, i can't find the article. Here's an older one explaining what was happening. https://madriverunion.com/ragman-pete-villarreal-gravely-ill/

Who ever's running the cartel heroin ring out of Fortuna at any given point.

Guy Fieri

What does Guy do around here? I used to work for him in Santa Rosa before he was famous. He was a good dude back then, I'm happy for him. Does he have a restaurant here or something?


gnark

He just bought the Ferndale Meat Company building this February, so it seems his involvement in Humboldt is increasing. He did a show or two in Humboldt and maybe some benefit activities, but obviously is mostly busy elsewhere. He certainly is the biggest celebrity with strong roots here. Jeff Bridges did spent some time here when he was young and his family goes back a ways. His grandfather, Lloyd Bridges Sr. was a major figure in Humboldt (the Lloyd Building, etc.) and the Dude definitely feels a connection to the area, but Fieri considers Ferndale his hometown.


WallyBallsIsMyAlias

> Fieri considers Ferndale his hometown I didn't know that. I always thought he considered that Santa Rosa. As that is where he still lives and in the same exact house he always did.


gnark

I guess I meant hometown as in where he grew up. He was born in Ohio but grew up in Ferndale then moved away for college and has lived elsewhere since, in Santa Rosa for some time now, as you mentioned. So he probably considers Santa Rosa to be home, but his connection to Ferndale is still relatively strong. If he wanted to run for mayor, he should be a shoe in.


WallyBallsIsMyAlias

Thanks for the info! Evidently he made a Ferndale/Humboldt episode of his show, looking forward to watching this: https://www.foodnetwork.com/shows/diners-drive-ins-and-dives/episodes/guys-hometown-tour

Is he still around? I haven’t seen him lately.

That crazy guy waving his dick at traffic. Nobody fucks with him.


DrGoodTrips

It’s sad that I’m like 80% I know the tweaker your talking about


MoreShoyu

Mike Wilson, County Supervisor and California Coastal Commission person for the North Coast is my guess based on zero research 😌


WallyBallsIsMyAlias

Thanks! I just went down a rabbit hole on the Board of Supervisors. It does appear those five people collectively are probably the answer here. At least in terms of the power the law grants them (they are legislative and executive authority - so Congress + President). https://humboldtgov.org/167/Board-of-Supervisors

That is wild, I had no idea. Thanks for coming back and sharing what you found!

The ghost of that guy who used to wander Old Town selling papers and it sounded like he was yelling "BaaabYYYY!"
