This morning I continued my One on One political interviews. Today I spoke with Kim Bergel, running for Eureka City Council 3rd Ward. She spoke of her top priorities which include an open political process with more public input, making the streets of Eureka safer for pedestrians and cyclists, and taking on the homeless problem. Kim gave her background and stated why she is running.
NOTE: For the record, despite numerous attempts on my part by email, phone and even Facebook, Mike Newman, Kim Bergel's opponent never responded to my invitation to come on the air.

This morning I had a conversation with National Weather Service office on Woodly Island about our rain totals. If you've been thinking we've had a lot of rain; you're right! Since September we are actually above normal for this time of year. We are however still considered to be in a drought. Ground water is still quite low, but if rainy conditions continue we could be getting into good shape soon. These wet conditions unfortunately are not being replicated in the rest of the state.
