  1. Who's on first? Why did we get a newspaper with such a general purpose name instead of the Arcata Eye?

  2. Same hack different name, about as quality as going to the Open door clinic with a Redwood splinterand having the apes their tell you you need SRS because you like beer but you see Women who sit on their cans all day in an office get fatter than feeder hogs when they drink beer as they really like to quash their thirst. but that's ok as they are all heavy Metal 80's rockers and like to party so they still need to get stoned and want to smoke pot instead. And YOU drink beer young man and your not sypathetic to Nana's party idealisms so you need to be a transgendered nutcase.

  3. Please tell me police logs will continue! Haven't lives in Arcata for 5 years, but those logs are still a hoot!

  4. Kevin Hoover

    Yes, the Police Log will continue!

  5. Katie Bowman

    Always hilarious

    Kevin, thank you for continuing the police log! I count on it as a reminder that there are still people in the world that are interested in a good life for their communities. Maybe we can have it some day in Texas, if we keep it in front of us so we know what to aim for.

    A few years ago my hometown newspaper, the "Lake Oswego Review" in Lake Oswego, OR, tried to emulate Kevin's witty police log. It caused such a stir in the wealthy bedroom community of Portland that the editor put the kibosh on such hilarity. The good citizens of Lake Oswego evidently thought that crime should be reported SERIOUSLY. Personally, I love Kevin's Police Log and am glad to see it continue.

  8. I was present for the "Death of Hip" in San Francisco. Then the Fall of Saigon. Then the departure of various friends and kinfolk as the decades swept by.

    And now, the end of the Arcata Eye.

    Will I be next? Sniff.

    Still missing the Eye as much as ever. So proud to have been a subscriber.

  10. This head shot makes me decide: I'm 61 years old, but I should use my 11 year old head shot as my avatar/ photo-headshot. Hmmmmmmm. Tell me what you think to

  11. I discovered The Arcata Eye on July 23, 2014. I hope it lives on with a new owner/ publisher / writer. Please make this happen. Thanks. So be it! Email me at to track the results of this request. This is not a joke. This is a for real, earnest, request for continuity.
