Powerful Messages - Stop the Violence Coming Soon

Cliff Berkowitz / Saturday, Oct. 18 @ 9:50 a.m. / Activism

KHUM's 19th Stop the Violence, Start the Healing campaign will begin November 4th and continue for three weeks. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9--9:30 in the morning we will be having one-on-one conversations with experts. Then on Friday mornings we will have our two-hour panel discussions from 8--10, with our third week culminating with our annual community Healing Breakfast at the lovely Eureka Woman's Club. This year we have selected topics in response to both national issues and community needs. Week 1 we will talk about "The Culture of Aggression." Week two will be about "Sexualized Violence in Humboldt County." An our third and final week will focus on "Youth Who are Vulnerable and the People Who Can Help Them"

Our first week will be dealing with "The Culture of Aggression," a topic that has been in the news with this year's NFL domestic violence scandals as the tip of the iceberg. We find ourselves examining the role of violence in our daily lives, institutions, and even our language. Every once in a while something private, hidden and ugly is shown in the light of day and the world takes notice. This gives us the opportunity to have an important discussion about how we can change "The Culture of Aggression." The NFL is trying to have this very discussion and has just put out this very powerful message.

Dronkers Deep Web: A Short History Of Skeletal Remains Found In The Dark Woods Of Humboldt County

Mike Dronkers / Yesterday @ 11:55 a.m. / Deep Web

You ever find yourself way off the beaten path in the Humboldt backcountry, thinking "I'm totally going to find a body here"? Relax. Most times, you don't find a body.

This time on Deep Web, we revisit the Humboldt section of reddit, where redditor/bigfoot enthusiast 'snowhorse 420' compiled a sobering list of corpse discoveries and other morbidities.Go deep on those links, via /u/snowhorse420:

This manifest is probably incomplete, so add your own links in the comment section.

And also, what does it all mean? Doesn't this seem like a lot of skeletons? (And hey, commenters: consider that the deceased may have family members reading this.)

Lastly, if you like seeing local reenactors explain who populates our local cemeteries and how they got there, check this link from Archive.org [h/t the_arcatan].

Happy Halloween!

Next time on Deep Web: the worst bargains on Humboldt Craigslist. Send your example[s] of delusionally optimistic sellers to mike@khum.com.



Jen Kalt, Bombastic Orator, Not Furious About Being Nixed Out Of Low-Level Committee

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Oct. 29 @ 11:07 a.m. /

According to the Mad River Union, Jen Kalt's nomination for a McKinleyville community advisory group was withdrawn after "grumblings from conservative individuals" to Supervisor Ryan Sundberg. 

Kalt, of Humboldt Baykeeper and a regular guest on KHUM's Coastal Currents, was thought to be too polarizing. 

Mad River Union:

Kalt’s opponents, Sundberg said, might cause problems by attending McKMAC meetings and working to undermine the committee. Or, he said, “they can do things behind the scenes.”

Speaking on KHUM earlier today about her burning quest for vengeance, Kalt seethed:

"I'm not mad at all. I'm grateful Craig Tucker's gonna do it, he'll do a great job. I think it's great that Ryan is looking to listen to people from a wide range of community interests."

Then Kalt didn't slam the phone down angrily. 

"It's not about him or me, it's about the committee doing a good job for the community as a whole."
