McKinleyville Middle School 8th grader Gabrielle Wadsworth saw a need in her community and stepped up! The school already has coats and school supplies for their students in need, Gabrielle wanted to add to that by also supplying items for everyday use and comfort, such as toiletries, t-shirts, socks, underwear, and more.
Wadsworth is an avid member of Girl Scout Troop 10629 and is working on the project for her Silver Award - the highest award that a Girl Scout Cadet can earn. The Silver Award project is an individual community-based project, usually consisting of 50 hours, a community mentor, and an idea with sustainability. Wadsworth has put in over 70 hours though and has had to go to local service groups and businesses to generate donations for the project.
The items for the anonymous closet were organized into easily accessible bins (pictured right and below).
Fri the 30th is the birthday of the man many call 'The Originator'
Bo Diddley, one of the undisputed architects of Rock 'n Roll.
Along with his music, you'll hear the usual mix
of great blues, soul and R & B.
Check out The South Side every Friday from 7 to 10pm.

This morning Emily Sinkhorn and I talked about accomplishments in trails for the year, and what to expect in 2017. We looked at the Red Cap Road Bikeway in Orleans, the Freshwater Farms Nature Trail, Bike Month, the First Annual Humboldt County Trails Summit, Lacks Creek, Ped and bike safety improvements in Fortuna and McKinleyville, construction on the northern end of the Bay Trail, and active studies for the southern end. We also talked about the Eureka Waterfront Trail and last weekend's grand opening of the next phase of the trail making for a contiguous 2.5 miles of trails thus far. We also looked at the possible completion of the trail in 2017.

This morning I spoke with Shrox (aka Douglas Shock). He is a space and Sci-Fi artist. His work has been featured in various movies and commercials. Over the years he has done many art pieces revolving around Star Trek. In 2018 the piece posted above will be featured in the official Star Trek Calender. As he likes to do with his art, Shrox merges a few Sci-Fi worlds here. You can check out more of his work at shrox.com. Large prints of his art work will soon be on display at a local venue. Watch his website to find out where.

This morning Carol Vandermere and I spoke with Miles Slatery the city of Eureka about phase one of the Eureka Waterfront Trail. The Grand Opening will take place this Saturday connecting with this portion of the trail to the Hikshari' trail for 2 1/2 mile segment. When asked when the entire Eureka waterfront Trail is expected to be completed, Slatery responded "October 2017". I also asked Miles about the rumors of the Hikshari trail extending south. He said they are currently exploring the option of extending it all the way to Scotia. Since at this point that is just conceptual, there is no timeline for it, but I for one am very excited about that. Slattery said it right now they're concentrating on the southern part of the Bay Trail. When complete it will connect with the completed Eureka waterfront Trail for a contiguous ride from the southernmost part of Eureka all the way to Arcata as pictured above.

This morning I talked with Patrick Dowell of the National Weather Service office on Woodley Island. Patrick is a forecaster there and explained why this forthcoming system Will be so severe. They will be a series of storms that will be latching on to each other bringing up all lot of moisture. In fact this series of storms could bring in 9 inches of rain in just a few days. In addition to the rain, high tides are expected making the possibility of coastal flooding much more likely. A flood watch will be in effect for the next few days. The Eel River at Fernbridge is expected to flood by this Thursday at 7 PM and it is expected to crest at 22 1/2 feet by Friday.
