HA! We feel like geniuses today, THC fans. Gosh darn geniuses! Know why?
Because about 5 months, THC called up Bill Gillespie (the Humboldt Bay Fire Department Chief) and talked to him about the “brown-out” of Fire Station 4 in Eureka.
You can read all about our conversation with him, and our general thoughts on the situation, by visiting this post of ours from way back in February:
Wanna know what we told ol’ Bill when we were chit-chatting? That an easy way to cut down on expenses is to focus on salary savings. Guess how they managed to all of a sudden “find” the funds available to re-open Fire Station 4?
We won’t be total assholes and point out to the idiots in charge that the savings were always there for the taking. We also won’t point out that the reason those savings weren’t taken advantage of is because the powers that be wanted to sell us all on a new, ludicrously lucrative tax measure (which this makes them frickin’ liars!). That would be unfair, and besides, we’ve said that before about a bajillion times.
It’s hard being right all the time, folks, but we think we handle the responsibility with grace, humility, and aplomb. We are sure you agree.
