In one of the most critical times of the year, Humboldt County high schoolers have proved their generosity by collecting an overwhelming amount of non-perishable food for the annual Food for People Holiday Food Drive. In collaboration with North Coast Senator Mike McGuire and KHUM Radio, the efforts of six local high schools will be enough to feed thousands across the county for several months. 

"What stood out for me was we found a system that pits working professionals, students, families, and the mentally ill all in one housing pool, all fighting to find the same housing," says student journalist Freddy Brewster.  Brewster and Tony Wallin were two of the 20 HSU students in Marcy Burstiner's investigative reporting class who collaborated on the North Coast Journal's cover story, "The Housing Games," this week.  

On this week's Through the Eyes of Women, Kathleen Marshall connects with local author Amy Stewart.

Amy Stewart has recently released the fourth book in her fiction series about the real-life Kopp Sisters.  The Kopp sisters, particularly Constance, jumped from the headlines of 1914 newspapers right into Amy Stewart's life.  Join Kathy and Amy for this engaging conversation.

It's barely half a mile long, and apart from one small grocery store, a few home entrances and a handful of parked cars, it has no notable features. That for Bai, is precisely the point. "It's very clean, very good!" he smiles.
