Earlier this week, I was able to sit down with Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman to talk about what the APD took away from the Black and Blue Dialogue at HSU last week. I also shared some stories, posed questions submitted by people of color in our community for the chief to answer.

Above: Roll call! Winkler, Ornelas, Rose-Campbell, Pitino!
Wow. Not one candidate threatened to jail any of the others. Truly stunning.
Yes, last night your Lost Coast Outpost, with support from the Mad River Union and KHUM, had the privilege to submit questions to four of the five candidates running for three Arcata City Council seats opening up this November. During the hour debate, incumbents Paul Pitino, Susan Ornelas and Michael Winkler and challenger Valerie Rose-Campbell all displayed a keen knowledge of Arcata’a inner workings as well as a love of their community. (A fifth registered candidate, Daniel Murphy, was unable to attend.)
Topics presented by yours truly and Sierra Jenkins included: affordable housing, wastewater treatment plant upgrades, homelessness, Halloween and New Year’s Eve Plaza policing, the Medical Marijuana Industrial Zone and more. Listen below.
(Special thanks to Mad River Union's Jack Durham for forcefully keeping time and to KHUM's Bayley Brown for audio-documenting the candidates positions for the ages.)

This morning I spoke with Scott Carroll of the National Weather Service office on Woodly Island. As of this morning it's warm and windy but not very rainy yet. The question was is this storm shaping up to what is expected? The short answer is yes. This will be a series of storms lasting through Monday bringing with it 2 to 4 inches of rain around the bay and 4 to 6 to 8 inches throughout the region. The windier system will the the second one to come though after today's. My full interview is below.
