What if instead of throwing your money at Wall Street, you could keep your dollars right here on the north coast?
Julie Fulkerson explores this topic on her KEET-TV program, North Coast Perspectives.
Fulkerson, Fund Humboldt's Seth Geddes, and Humboldt Area Foundation executive director Patrick Cleary [disclosure: Cleary owns KHUM's parent company] spoke on KHUM today about what local investment looks like from grassroots crowdfunding up to self-directed IRAs.

Learn about new possibilities to grow our economy.

"First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you." -- F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Scott and Zelda were the symbols of the American roaring twenties, and they were often roaring drunk themselves. But the Jazz Age begat the Great Depression and Zelda succumbed to madness. Later, on the verge of war, Scott died of a heart attack in Hollywood. I bring this up for no particular reason.
When he was going strong, however, Scott favored gin and in particular, the rickey. A rickey is a subset of cocktails, primarily characterized by the presence of lemon or lime, seltzer, simple syrup, gin (though sometimes rum or whiskey) and typically little else. The first and greatest of the rickeys is the lime rickey, sometimes called a gin rickey or, simply, just "rickey".
For books by and about F. Scott Fitzgerald, check out North Town Books in Arcata.

3/4 oz fresh lime juice
seltzer or club soda
simple syrup to taste
Pour gin and lime juice into chilled highball glass filled with ice. Top with seltzer and simple syrup to taste. Stir gently, garnish with lime wheel and serve with straw.
