Jared Huffman, our representative in DC, was in Humboldt yesterday and was kind enough to stop by the KHUM studios to submit to another gruelling grilling from the Traskmaster.
Listen to interview today on KHUM at high noon, or below.

This morning Emily and I spoke with Aaron Antrim of Trillium Solutions. Aaron used to live in Humboldt County, attended HSU and helped found Greenwheels. Aaron was instrumental in creating the JackPass program which allows HSU students to travel on HTA buses for free (paid for through a portion of student fees). Now Aaron runs Trillium Transit Solutions which works with transit agencies across the country and the world to make public transportation more efficient and easier for all people to use in both rural and urban areas.

Once again, KHUM will provide the musical soundtrack for your 4th of July fireworks starting at 10pm Friday night, right after the South Side. Whichever fireworks display you are watching, bring KHUM along for fireworks music without the rules. No John Philip Sousa marches here, you'll hear Jimi Hendrix, Arlo Guthrie, Tracy Chapman, Ray Charles, Richie Havens and the like. So when heading out for the fireworks, remember the cooler and a radio tuned to KHUM!

This morning I spoke with Erik Standifird and Sasha Shay who are starring in the upcoming musical comedy "The Wedding Singer" July 25th through August 17th at the Ferndale Repertory Theater. Originally a film starting Adam Sandler, this sage version has been turned into a musical with lots of good 80s fun.
Larry Trask / Tuesday, June 24 @ 1:33 p.m. / Cocktail
This is a complicated drink with a lot of ingredients but, as with all recipes, a skilled mixologist can find ways to make adjustments. I'm not a big fan, usually, of blended drinks, but this one is better blended, in my opinion. Note this cocktail packs a punch.
- Two cups ice
- 1 oz pineapple juice
- 1 oz orange juice
- 1 oz blackberry liqueur
- 1 oz banana liqueur
- 1 oz light rum
- 1 oz dark rum or aged rum
- Splash grenadine
- Optional: one ounce of Bacardi 151 to float on top
- Orange slice (optional)
- Fill your blender with the ice
- Add all of the liquid ingredients
- Blend the contents until smooth
- Pour into a Hurricane glass and garnish with an orange slice
- Add the 151 floater!
On the Rocks:
Fill glass with ice. Add the liquid contents. Pour the 151 in the straw or on the top.

Cliff and Emily talk with Miles Slattery, City of Eureka Parks and Recreation director about the Eureka Waterfront trail. Where we are, the next three phases of the trail and potential funding that could complete the trail around the city by 2016. They will find out about the funding in August. Wish them (and us) luck! We also discussed all phases of the Bay Trail, and slough crossing options.
Also the County of Humboldt has put out a comprehensive booklet about the Bay Trail and it's phases. Click on the banner above to see the PDF.
