  • A promotion from the ground up
    Humboldt County’s new buildings and grounds supervisor is Enoc Gaitan, who got the job on the recommendation of retiring Buildings and Grounds Supervisor Doug Cain. Gaitan worked his way into that department head position “from the ground up.” When Cain began to seriously consider retiring, he said he knew he should be looking for his replacement and working on training that person to take over.
  • ‘Play Away’ this summer and all year long
    Who has time to read? LeAnn Autrey at Humboldt County Library says everyone does. With recorded books — reading — or more correctly listening to a book can be combined with walking, riding in the car, even house or yard work. Those who enjoy recorded books have found listening to a book is entertainment that can be combined with so many other activities or with just relaxing anywhere — even when they’re too tired to read.

  • INSIDE NASCAR: Busch, Again!
    Kyle Busch continued an improbable run toward championship contention Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, leading three times for 19 laps to win the 22nd Brickyard 400.

  • INSIDE NASCAR: The Numbers Game
    The modified aerodynamic package used at Indianapolis caused the race car cockpits to stay much warmer than usual due to unexpectedly poor ventilation. Sprint Cup driver (and triathlete) Landon Cassill wanted to know the toll of continued exposure to 140-degree heat, and was happy to share it on Twitter. After the race, Cassill reported his 26th-place finish included a loss of 15 pounds or 10 percent of his pre-race body weight. During the race, Cassill said he consumed 110 ounces of fluids and 1,100 calories via various snacks.

  • Trump can’t help being Trump.
     
  • I’ve got to congratulate Donald Trump for how fast he’s become more annoying to the Republican Party than a mouse in an air conditioning unit. He’s like that popcorn husk that gets stuck in the back of your molars and you can’t pry it out with a cord of toothpicks. He’s almost as grating as the Kars for Kids commercial.
     
  • We like prices
    We like prices. We know that sounds strange. Most people like only certain kinds of prices: low prices if they are buying and high prices if they are selling. As economists, however, we like them all.
