Q: How did 2014 kick off in Northwestern California?
“It started off miserably of course with, Father Eric. And umm, it’s a direct reflection with what happens with the drug culture. It’s a direct reflection of what happens with the St. Vincents and the Betty Chin’s who makes us an attractive nuisance.” (The alleged perpetrator has a long history of mental illness and has no known connection with Betty Chin or St. Vincents. Father Freed was a big champion for Betty Chin).
(As far as politics) “I was a little perplexed by the city of Eureka elections. I don’t quite understand them and I don’t think we worked hard enough (we didn’t have another measure N type fraud to lure the right wingers to the polls)….California has sucked a lot of the emotion out of politics. At some point in the very near future we’re going to have to take teachers unions to task. (Still smarting over the loss of big time Arkley suckup John fullerton to Teachers Union supported Lisa Oliveira) It can be done. Californians just don’t choose to do it. There are those of us that move.(Run away to Baton Rouge to hide from his failures)”
Robin hates the Harbor District and the way it’s running. Especially Jack Crider “from Oregon”. Arkley makes the unsupported claim that Crider; “failed everywhere else and chose to end up in the Humboldt Bay”. He said, “They love to use the Harbors credit to go into competition against private business. And you’re right everyone, that’s me (private business) and I object to it, I resent it and I think it’s wrong.” (Arkley’s obviously still enraged that the Harbor District’s east-west rail feasibility study found that the project would be un-feasible) “But that’s where they are and elections have consequences and that’s going to be my focus this year. “ (Remember, the lone witness to speak up about the Arkley assault on a City Councilman was Harbor Commissioner Mike Wilson. Arkley never forgets a perceived foe).
Q: Was there any progress with the Balloon track (In 2014)?
“Yes there was….There was a great case that came out from Walmart that says that if a city passes an initiative, that you don’t have to have a CEQA process. So the opposing people on the balloon track are having a heart murmur on that…ha ha ha.” (It was the Coastal Commision that woke us from Arkley’s Marina Center fever dream, not the CEQA case brought by EPIC and Baykeeper)
Arkley went on to say that if he was making more money (not losing it) he would be building up the balloon track right now. (Yeah right. First he would need to financially settle up with the City of Eureka, State Lands Commission and the Coastal Commission, to name a few, and then try to repair his damaged credibility with these agencies).
In fact, Cheri is supposedly putting the plans in place to get work started on the “local business” based center. (Wow the Arkley propaganda machine has come full circle. That’s what Cheri was claiming over a decade ago, even while courting Big Box mega stores to be the “anchor store” at the center!).
