I find your web page really useful and interesting. I noticed that the real estate page charts and graphs have not been updated for some time.  Will this data be posted any time soon?

Keep up the good work!

Many thanks to you and your staff for the recent report that you have made available on the Humboldt County housing market. I found the work on the housing P/E ratio to be especially useful. I read the most recent update on the P/E ratio and would very much appreciate any future updates. Thanks again for making this fine work available!

I applaud your comments on the Political-Economy of Our Environment.  These are tough issues that the business community needs to participate in to find solutions.

Thanks so much for the good work your department does in maintaining this site. I make referrals to it virtually every day when folks are looking to do market research for their business plans. It is a concrete body of data to tie national and regional trends to our Humboldt County market. It is a great source of factual support for an entrepreneur's sales and marketing assumptions.

Hi. My name is Michelle Locke and I am a reporter for the Associated Press. If you are reading this before 5-15, I've got a question on how to interpret figures from your economic index. I'm looking for a graph explaining the role of lumber in Humboldt County's economy.
Thanks.

Thank you for specific information on the local gasoline price situation. In my opinion, you state the information very clearly. If anything though, you give local gasoline wholesalers and retailers a huge amount of slack. If a station like Hansens in Fortuna can undercut gasoline in Eureka by a whopping 24 cents a gallon (as of 11/29/02), how can there be anything but collusion and greed in the local gasoline market place? If it costs 4-12 cents to ship fuel here, why are we 25 cents higher than Redding and Willits? What are the specific factors limiting competition here? Could the wholesalers actually be using price manipulation to smother any local competition? I think that this situation would make for a fascinating research project, and that the impact on our local economy in terms of lost tourism will prove increasingly important. Once again thank you for the information, and keep up the good work.

Love your website, as it provides terrific information for my various writing projects. I just noticed a common error that I wanted to pass on: you report electricity consumption in kilowatts, but the correct measurement unit is kilowatt-hour, or kwh, 1,000 watts consumed for one hour.

Your economic analysis is very helpful for local business and real estate to get a picture of what is happening in Humboldt County. However, comments like "saving capitalism from the capitalists" and "forcing President bush" reflect a continuing bias by the educational elite who use the classroom as a propaganda platform instead of a place to build thoughtful citizens. The recent energy problems in California demonstate how a government managed economy in a free market world results more harm than good.

Your editorial, interpretive comments in the recent reports are much appreciated. "Perspective is all" and your comments help to provide that without using a sledge hammer. Hope you haven't received any negative remarks regarding same.

I enjoyed reading your economic analysis of Humboldt County. Does someone in your department follow economic trends in Del Norte County?
