From today’s Times-Standard (emphasis all ours):
I commend the elected officials for taking time out of their schedules to attend the recent California Coastal Commission meeting, and argue the case for the CUE Vi Coastal Development Permit. The $1,876 seems like a small price to pay especially if the commission had any interest in acquiring more information on the Project.
I am not associated in any way with the project, but I am offering the city of Eureka a donation of $1,876 to cover the expense of their representatives. I hope that will stop the whining about the wasteful spending.
You talk about political grandstanding by the councilman. I think that you should put more effort into investigative reporting and be more “fair and balanced” in your editorials.
You also talk about middle ground. I don’t know how you describe middle ground, but it seems to me that the Arkleys have gone beyond halfway. They are cleaning up a mess, developing wetlands, putting people to work and creating a beautiful Project. What has the opposition done to meet in the middle?
I think you are correct when you said the project has a great deal of support, but I believe the number of detractors is small.
