Atkins edged out for congeniality award at Nielsen forum

Notice the strong resemblence between Linda and motivational speaker and author Dale Carnegie who penned the widely popular "How to Win Friends and Influence People."

Boy oh boy! Someone needs a hug.

”I’m really ashamed to be a part of the city of Eureka now,” [Eureka City Councilwoman Linda] Atkins said, going on to charge that Nielsen’s firing was done to “demoralize the community” and that the city council and Tyson are unresponsive to the will of Eurekans. “I waste time Tuesday nights at city council meetings with the way members of our council don’t listen to their citizenry.”     -Times-Standard

All in favor of her not wasting her time any longer, say aye.

  1. AYE!

  2. I think Atkins’ comments have gone beyond dour to possibly actionable. Isn’t it her colleagues and employees she’s shrieking about?

  3. Aye aye aye aye aye, etc.

  4. We could get rid of her in a heartbeat if the city passed an ordinance against bitchy.

  5. These are not the words of a person who represents me. If she’s so ashamed to be associated with the city, why doesn’t she quit?

  6. Now?

  7. Aye aye, Captain.

  8. Guess what Proggies? Elections have consequences.

  9. Aye!

  10. Aye.

    What a jerk. A closed minded arrogant and angry regressive. Here’s a thought Linda, resign since you are wasting your time. This bullshit of yours, Glass, LaVallee and kuhnel is just that. Total bullshit. Atkins inability to use good judgment translates into her being rendered irrelevant so babe don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  11. “Elections have consequences.” So true. And it’s also true that you can buy elections, but only up to a point. Sure yur RA/Bugsy crowd took over the council in the last one, but let’s see what happens in the next one. People who felt safer under the now ousted chief may get to the the polls next time.

  12. Ya Gorp, overwhelming community support. The implication of Groping is to understand. You do not even have a clue. Is that you George, same stupidity in your posts.

    Atkins is done on City Council, Cliff is going down on BS, this is people voting against the progressive agenda. Hblog has damn near become irrelevant. Just a bunch of whiners. I hear the flush of the toilet now, they are circling the bowl at this point. Bye now.

  13. It is funny, amazing, how twisted and angry Glass and Atkins are. And of course LaVallee and Kuhnel. LaVallee, Kuhnel, and Glass thought they were shoe in’s in the last election, they were very wrong. And now they are just angry sore loser proggressive type has been politicians.

    The forum had approximatley 100, then Thadeous put it at 75, but that included a few newsy folks and apparently Matt O. In reality there were probably 60 to 65.

    Even bright people get stupid when they get angry so dumb people get really stupid when they get angry.

    It would appear as if there is more to this issue than meets the eye and as such the fab four could end up looking really stupid, Atkins and Glass especially because I’m sure they are privy to some inside info on the former chief of police’s situation..

  14. I really enjoyed Kaitlan’s comments. The pancake feed girl. The Messure T nutcase.

    The next council meeting should be interesting, maybe Atkins will have a public meltdown?

    My only concern with the council and Tyson is what took them so long. But they did do the right thing.

  15. ”I’m really ashamed to be a part of the city of Eureka now,”
    The feeling is mutual, I’m sure, Linda. But here’s my question: What part of Eureka are you? Not the head, I’m guessing.

  16. I have got a suggestion for Linda since she is so ashamed. Resign and get out. Here’s an eye opener for you Linda, I am ashamed of you. Ashamed at your behavior. Ashamed that I know you (and I do girlfriend.) You are not “irrelevant.” You are “less than irrelevant.”

  17. The day will arrive to bring cheer for Eureka getting cleaned up, with access to a decent hardware store, and a marina to set the area as a hot spot for pleasure cruising. The marina alone will bring countless dollars into the local economy, when the bums are forced out both from office and the marshes- it will be a good day.

  18. 65. Number of people in the room or median iq, you decide.

  19. All of the above.

  20. What elected official says something like this? If she’s so miserable she can get the fuck out of office. There are people who want to serve.

  21. Aye. Please leave the council you crybaby.

  22. Who is that guy? And why he is named Linda?

  23. Linda, you’re a waste of the city’s time. Bugger off please.

  24. Aye !! How many out there are embarrased to have Linda A. represent the city ? Yukko.

    This is a fact; Larry Glass, Ron Kuhnel, Peter LaVallee, and of course Linda Loveless are all super snivelers.

  25. If i lived in the city of Eureka I would be ashamed. Atkins is a joke and a fluke. I did not know that Cobb was represented at the meeting. Kaitlan, get real.

    Gosh, Linda says measure O money will be used. Was that discussed in close session. Cause if it was, Linda your busted. It is a crime to disclose things that are discuss in close session.

  26. AYE CARUMBA

  27. All of the liberal airing of this cause may make it very diffcult for the object of their “effection” getting another job.

  28. Poor Linda, I mean really, Poor LInda. She uproots herself and her life, moves to this godforsaken wildnerness so that the ignorant, knuckle-dragging locals can benefit from her wisdom, sagacity, experience and all-around awesomeness. And what does our dear carpetbagger get in return? Ignomious derision, pitiless pillory, and contempt. Poor thing.

    Gee, maybe life in this pristine, unspoiled, substance saturated paradise is not so great afterall.

  29. Why does Kaitlan have a booster cushion for her water board seat?

  30. Garr knew too much insider information about Tyson’s extra marital affairs

    Only choice was to send his ass back to Oregon

  31. The truth was moderated off of HH.

  32. Or vise versa..

  33. Snap!

  34. If you think Linda tanked in congeniality, wait until you see where she placed in the swim suit contest.

  35. Yeah. And its a crime to carry on with teenagers too but not here where nobody will prosecute you if your a prog. Maybe why Larry and friends are freaking out. No more cover from Garr.

  36. Linda’s kickin your ass, Tyson lovin bugs. on your knees bitches.

  37. ANON 9:02 pm? Really. Is that all you got?

    everyone at the department knew about garr and tawnie!

    Shouldnt call the pot black when you are roasting in the fire.

  38. Soooooooo – the CITY cannot say anything as it is a personnel matter, or chooses not to. That’s unfortunate because it leave the speculation throttle stuck on high, and people are melting down all over.

    Presumably, Garr is free to talk, and he did so on the radio and in a “My Word.” Both he and Atkins are choosing NOT to go the PROFESSIONAL way on this, but seem instead to be slinging he innuendo, her more than him.

    Please, you guys, step outside yourselves. The things you say now live forever because of the internet and podcasts. You have no idea what you are doing to you own credibility and viability.

    Stop and think – would you advise a daughter or co-worker to go forward with the psycho conspiracy theory talk? The attacks on the boss/City Manager? Do you really expect that the next City Manager won’t google you when you apply?

    This is SO damaging. It’s heartbreaking. And I am not saying this as one of your attackers, far from it. Fueling the wildfire is just not a good idea – other people are getting off on this, and it is at your expense.

    Garr served well – by his own admission and by statistics we know that Chiefs only last a couple of years as a rule, same with school administrators and other in-charge professions. You suck it up, you take it, you move on – with grace and professionalism.

    The “progressive/regressives”may not want to let you do that – but YOU can stop the bleeding. Before it is too late.

    Good luck in your endeavors. And Linda – for God’s sake, you have to work with your fellow councilmen. Step out of the heat of the moment. Stop the bleeding.

    You’re supposed to calm the waters, guide the boat, not add fuel to the fire, and crash into the reef.

    And everybody else – calm down. There’s not need for all this personal denigration. I know, I know, I have no sense of humor – but seriously… can’t we all just get along?

  39. Apparently you have anonymous readers who are so scared of using their own name and IP address that they won’t even post their responses here – but choose instead to post them elsewhere – so, since anonymous the coward is asking me about my comment above, but is too scared to post it here, I thought I would do it for him/her, to show him/her/it how it is done: (Oh, my, should I be terrified? will fire and brimstone erupt if a comment gets posted here? It’s soooooooo skeery, maybe I shouldn’t do it!!!!!!!!!)

    Here goes:

    Is she unaware that Tyson has served as city manager for 11 years which is about twice as long as usual? Did she inadvertently leave city managers out of her list of in-charge professionals or did she deliberately leave city manager out of this list? Why do we have term limits on the council but not on the single most powerful and NOT ELECTED person in city government?

    She further posted:

    Which proves, despite all her disingenuous claims that people have no reason to use their real names, she understands quite clearly that people have good reasons for posting anonymously. Just another example of her deceitful propaganda.

    Rose asked, “how does BROADENING an investigation into a serious matter, and looking to find out how many people were involved, peripherally or not, become characterized by the heraldos as covering up or blocking an investigation?”

    The best way to cover up malfeasance is with a broad but shallow investigation which is what Tyson ordered. The “he said – she said” interviews aren’t an investigation. Hansen’s attorney was able to uncover at least one of the participants in the hostile workplace environment creation, for far less than the $300,000 that Tyson spent, and then Tyson paid her off, gave her a glowing recommendation and she supposedly left town. What could she have told an investigator about the other participants if she wasn’t paid off? Is “Frank Rizzo,” a major participant in the Above the Law blog still at EPD?

    See – anonymous, you dumb ass – that’s how easy it is.

  40. Mike Butt and anon-mice. Rumor mongers. What a bunch of whores. Over on Hblog with all that trash about Frank. Silly bitches.

    Dumb shits. The majority at meeting, even if it was 65 out of 65, so what, means next to nothing. Just like the Hblog, somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-14 posters, TOTAL.

  41. This is what I find confusing; if Atkins knows what Tyson and the other council persons know they why is she supporting or advocating for Nielsen?

    Another thought. The city has “cause” to fire Nielsen but if they fire for cause he can challenge it and litigate, costing the city money for lawyers and the “cause” can be used by those suing him, and the city, to make their case better?! So they cut their losses, do the fiscally responsible thing and take the heat from clowns like Glass and Atkins? Could it be?

  42. I support Tyson’s decision to fire Nielsen and I really really support the council, with the exception of the consistanty angry Atkins, to affirm that firing.

    Nielsen is gone, be happy, get on with life and other issues.
