KHUM is very proud to sponsor "Increase The Peace". This wonderful, family friendly event is this Sunday, February 14th, Valentines Day at The Jam.

Bayley also spoke to Object Heavy drummer and owner of The Jam Pete Ciotti.
Courtney herself is a survivor domestic violence. After multiple surgeries to repair her injuries from being shot in the face by her then fiance she is back on the stage singing. She has become an outspoken advocate for domestic violence prevention. Courtney speaks on in this interview courtesy of News 21.

Now is the time to take home a furry friend! Several pooches passed their temperament test and now there is little room left in the adoptable dog kennels. All adoptable dogs at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter are $50 through tomorrow. That price includes spay and neuter, microchip, and basic shots.
The shelter is open until 4 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. till 7 p.m. tomorrow. You can head to Pet Harbor to get a current list of the dogs or call 707-840-9132.
For more information, check out my conversation earlier with Humboldt County Animal Shelter Volunteer Coordinator Mara Segal.

This morning Emily and I spoke with Sage Glegg of the Bigfoot Trail Alliance. It's been nearly a year to the day since we last talked with Michael Kauffmann about the trail. Since then the Alliance has become an official 501C3 non-profit. This nearly 400 mile trail snakes through some of the most beautiful wilderness through several counties and states (California and Oregon). Sage who recently hiked the entire trail reported on its beauty and areas that need some love and improvement. Since the formation of the alliance, giving love and improvement to this treasure has been their goal.

Decade of Difference once again presents the Innovate Business Challenge. By February 11th, high schoolers with a great business idea need to have their "elevator pitch" uploaded to DecadeOfDifference.org. This pitch is just a 90 second selfie video where students explain their idea in a short period of time.
This morning I spoke with Genevieve Regli, a previous Innovate Business Challenge winner who enthusiastically explained her concept and what students need to do this year to get in on the competition.

An agreement has been worked out with Green Diamond and the proposed McKinleyville Community Forest is moving forward quickly. This 600 plus acre project is now seeking grant funding and could be a reality as quickly as 2 years.
