This morning Emily and I spoke with Pamela Brown about the Arcata Dog Park. At this point a parcel has been identified and they are hoping to have control of it by 2016. At that point fundraising can begin and if all goes according to plan, Acata will join Eureka and Fortuna as cities in Humboldt County that have official dog parks. More info at ArcataDogPark.com

It was a beautiful day out on the Arcata Plaza today. KHUM's pastel artist for the past 20 years, and my wife for the past 31 years, was up and at it at 7am this morning applying layer upon layer of pastes to the Plaza sidewalk (along G Street). By 11am she was finished. SQUIRRELS! People shouted that as they passed by, recalling a scene out of the movie "Up."
All four sides of the Arcata Plaza are filled up beautiful, yet temporary art work. It will stay there as long as mother nature permits. By all accounts, this fundraiser for North Coast Children's Services was a big success!

This is a rails to trails project that has been in the works for the past 10 years between the towns of McCloud and Burney. This is a 50+ mile span.

It was a stunningly beautiful day out at Waterfront Run & Walk outside of Eureka Natural Foods today. Hundreds of men, women and children of all ages came out for this fund raiser for trails and running shoes for kids. There were loads of vendors giving out lots of samples and Olio Samba Collective got the runners revered for both the 2 and 5 mile event. The giant Del Arte puppets were also on hand to add to the carnival atmosphere.
