Not all hope is lost in Humboldt (Eureka):
"The most amazing thing happened today a very sweet angel paied for our groceries today at winco unfortunately I was unaware that winco doesn't accept credit cards an I almost lost my thanksgiving meal. We live in a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful people an I am a firm believer in that thank you so much marlyn I will pay it forward happy holidays Humboldt."
To the guy on Highway 36, Blue windstar (Highway 36):
"You stopped to help me change my flat tire you were very kind. I think you said your name was Jeff I should have asked for your number but was so thankful for your kindness and generosity that I was at a loss for words. If by any chance you see this put the name and color of the car I was driving in the reply I would like to buy you dinner and get to know you better."
Your surfboard flew off your van near moonstone (Moonstone):
"Your surfboard came flying off your large white van near moonstone beach. I saved it, Please describe it and it shall be yours again!"
"I am so sad to see how many people tear each other down on this site and in the community. We should be encouraging each other and lifting each other up. To each there own. Everyone is so concerned with what everyone else does. If you have nothing nice to say, dont say anything at all. Instead of looking at someone and picking them apart, focus on what is beautiful about them. The world would be a much nicer place if we just loved each other. I may be just a peace loving hippie who likes my weed, but there is no drama in my life. Look for the beauty in everything and everyone and I promise, you will live a happier life. No body knows the struggle that every person goes through. Everyone faces their own battle, we should not judge our fellow people. We are all people and deserve to be treated with kindness."

When K-Mart touched down in T. Aaron Carter's hometown, its local business wilted. As Humboldt Made's new incoming director, his job is to make sure that the Humboldt economy is strong, resilient, and united.
Carter spoke on KHUM today about his early plans for Humboldt Made, sleeping in his car, and how not being a Backstreet Boy has affected his Facebook page.

Hopefully this explains the jingle-jangle of dog tags you may hear in the background on KHUM.Comet's the chihuahua, Henry is the golden retriever. They get along, and are statistically shown to increase workplace goodness.

According to a press release from Eureka Main Street:
Eureka Main Street is excited to announce a new major 3 day event to be
held the first weekend of February (February 6-8, 2015). The Eureka Crab
Crawl Festival is designed to showcase the Dungeness Crab and the
seafood industry of the North Coast. Friday night's Crab Crawl is
essentially an extended happy "crabby" hour in Downtown and Old Town
Eureka with bars and restaurants offering seafood specials and
crab-themed drinks. Saturday's festival has fun for the whole family to
enjoy. The main focus is the delectable food choices offered by vendors
in addition to a beer and wine garden, music, crab related education,
activities and demonstrations. The crustacean celebration concludes with
the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum's annual crab feed held at the Adorni
The goal of the Eureka Crab Crawl Festival is to draw visitors to the
North Coast to enjoy the bounty of Dungeness Crab during what is
typically known as a slow time for tourism. This event is underwritten
by the Eureka Lodging Alliance and strongly supported by the City of
Eureka, Eureka Chamber of Commerce, Humboldt Maritime Museum, The
Humboldt Crabs, industry leaders and local businesses. Join in the fun
by becoming a sponsor, enlisting your business as part of the Crab
Crawl, participating as a vendor at the festival or any combination
thereof. The Eureka Crab Crawl Festival will be here before we know it.
Let's get crackin'!
