When you click play it may take a few seconds to start. Episode partners: Humboldt Clothing Co. / Cafe Nooner / Bongo Boy Studio Humboldt Last Week, Episode 83 (7:02): Last week the New York Times put out an article noting Humboldt County as the place hit worst by the opioid epidemic in all of California -- a place with an opioid death rate higher than five times the state average. The article goes into the disturbing amount of heroin and meth use in Eureka, homelessness issues, the lack of affordable housing in the area, law enforcement challenges, and criticism about the amount of state funding doled out to combat these issues. “We really are trying and it’s a challenge,” said Assemblymember Jim Wood, a dentist who sits on many health committees. “Because it’s not just about opioids, it’s about behavioral health, it’s about homelessness… we’re just not spending the money where we need to (on things like treatment and relapse prevention)...” In an interview with HLW, Wood discusses what he and the state have been doing to combat Humboldt’s opioid issues, a startling local heroin statistic, his healthcare proposals including one that would cover young undocumented immigrants, and his respectful disagreement with Governor Jerry Brown about healthcare funding priorities.

With what many call the “revolving door” at the jail comes majority support from the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors for an initiative called the “Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act.” “Serial property theft would mean a year in jail rather than probation -- that’s a big one,” said Lost Coast Outpost reporter Ryan Burns. The measure which is still in the signature gathering phase aims to make serial theft a felony, reduce early release numbers for violent prisoners, increase penalties for parole violations, and allow DNA collection in more cases among other things. It sounds great on paper if you’re not a criminal. In an unexpected turn of events at a ‘Supervisors meeting last week retiring Chief Probation Officer Bill Damiano broke with many of his law enforcement peers as a skeptic of the initiative saying it could bog down already overcrowded jails and take money away from rehabbing the 95 percent of inmates that will inevitably be released. That the good the initiative does can be achieved in other ways. In the program, Lost Coast Outpost reporter Ryan Burns is interviewed about his coverage on the meeting and the nuances of the perspectives shared. The interview begins at 11:42. Also covered The loss of a local radio superstar, the McKinley statue gets us national coverage, an NFL-bound HSU alum reaches an internet milestone, a local MMA fighter goes pro, Sara Bareilles gets outstanding critical reviews for a live performance on NBC, Fortuna has a new interim City Manager, a North Coast News employee anonymously told KMUD they’re refusing to run Sinclair promos in response to a viral video, drug issues, crime updates, and more.

Why do some of us care about who Humboldt-raised superstar Sara Bareilles is dating? Sure, she has a massive list of more noteworthy creative achievements, but last week some of the millions of readers of Elite Daily were drawn to a story with the headline: “Who is Sara Bareilles’ boyfriend? The pair have an adorable story.” As curiosity struck this apparently shameless writer and he clicked in, we wondered why he and others are drawn to this kind of information about people they’d likely never meet. “... a psychoanalyst in the tradition of Sigmund Freud might say we see ourselves or someone important to us reflected in the lives of strangers...” said Humboldt State University Psychology Lecturer Kevin Matlock. In the program more of Matlock’s thoughts on the subject are shared, and yeah, listeners can hear the juicy-to-some info about Bareilles that probably has no tangible impact on our lives. The story begins at 9:24.
