KHUM Listeners Debate Where The Best Trick-or-Treating Is

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Oct. 8 @ 4:41 p.m. / Community

Some say Eureka's Lundbar Hills has the best quantity, but it's a zoo.

Others say that Freshwater is the most charming. One listener swears the growers have left Sunnybrae and it's totally fine again.

Also, McKinleyville keeps coming up as the unsung sweet spot for candy collecting. Listener Heather of Heartwood counted over 100 visitors to her door last year. But that is NOTHING compared to what Julie reports out in Lundbar hills.

Where do YOU think the best trick-or-treating is, and why?

Things to consider:

  • Candy quantity
  • Neighborhood participation
  • Neighborhood decoration
  • Odds of accidentally finding a grow house
  • Walkability: hills? flat? 
  • Safety: good sidewalks? slow cars?
  • Also, candy quantity


Coastal Currents: Meta-Reading And Drought-Shaming

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Oct. 8 @ 1:46 p.m. / Mendocino

On today's episode, former HSU instructor Theresa May plugs a recital and performance from a book about a play about the Klamath Fish Kill. It's called "Salmon Is Everything," at Northtown BooksMike gets lost in the wash.

Also, drought-shaming is now a thing. There's even an app for that. But is it counterproductive? And would you do it?

You make the call.

Gimme Some Space! It's The LAW

A new PSA hit the airwaves regarding the new 3 foot passing law that recently went into effect here in California. Doing our part to help get the word out, here it is...



LIVE at the Knittery

Cliff Berkowitz / Saturday, Oct. 4 @ 7:06 p.m. / Art

It's Arts Alive in Eureka, and Amy and I are broadcasting live from the new Location of the North Coast Knittery in Old Town right now. At 6pm they tore the brown paper wrapper off the windows and let in the crowd; and what a crowd it is! The place is packed! Plus there is all kinds of wonderful art on display and lots of wearable art and knitting goodies are being raffled off every 15 minutes. Amy and I and pictured here with owner Laura Lamers.



Pasteles On the Plaza 2014

Amy Berkowitz / Saturday, Oct. 4 @ 1:56 p.m. / Art

Once again it was my honor to create the KHUM square for Pastels on the Plaza. This year for I was influenced by these four characters who frequent our garden most evenings. We have a Doe and her two fauns (still with their spots), and a young buck. They have eaten all my blueberries, decimated my French filet beans, and nibbled at my gladiolas. So I thought that you might want to see what these garden raiders look like. 

We had the hottest weather I have ever had to deal with while drawing, and that "inspired" me to finish early and get out of the sun. Thanks to Cliff and his amazing photo skills you can enjoy it from the convenience of your computer. Kudos to all the artists and sponsors who joined with KHUM in supporting North Coast Children's Services Just a quick reminder if you are venturing out to see the art in person: I am always impressed by how carefully most people traverse the Plaza to avoid stepping on and smudging the squares; the artists work really hard to create the magic that is this event. We appreciate it when viewers take care more than you know. Thanks, and enjoy!

The event provides a myriad of services for for veterans of all eras including their families and pets. Not only are services available on sight, but there are people there who can help veterans navigate through all the red tape to get to services they deserve.

Eureka Waterfront Trail - Complete Soon!

Cliff Berkowitz / Tuesday, Sept. 30 @ 9:28 a.m. / Trails

This morning Emily and I spoke with Miles Slattery, the Director of Parks and Recreation for the City of Eureka. We discussed the recent funding acquisition from various sources for the Eureka Waterfront Trail. The entire trail skirting the waterfront of the city of Eureka from the Park N Ride at Herrick/Elk River Road to Tidd Street at the north end of town, a contiguous 6.5 miles of class one trail could be complete by 2016. This only leaves the small section of space between Eureka and Bracut Center to be funded for the greater Bay Trail Project. Granted, that will be the most expensive section as it will be rail with trail and quite narrow. But if all goes well, it won't be long before you can ride on a trail from the Park N Ride at Herrick/Elk River Road all the way to Arcata.
