CHERIE & ROB ARKLEY


HUMBOLDT REPUBLICANS HONOR CIVIC LEADERS, TOP VOLUNTEER
Celebration was the theme on April 14th at the annual Republican of the Year Dinner. Cherie and Rob Arkley were honored for their generosity and heartwarming attention to civic projects and family futures in our area. Rose Welsh was selected as Volunteer of the Year for her masterful air displayed in our newsletters, websites, and artistic mailings. Cherie and Rob Arkley, long active in civic a airs, created the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts by completely rebuilding an old stage-and-screen theater; contributed $2 million to the City of Eureka for the waterfront boardwalk and were major funders of the Sequoia Zoo expansion. As business leaders they founded Economic Fuel, an annual competition among college students and recent graduates for the best entrepreneurial business plan. Winners receive cash prizes with which to start their businesses. Cherie Arkley served on the Eureka City Council from 1998-2002. She is active in North Coast Dance, The Arkley Center, Mirandas Rescue, the Humboldt Arts Council and the HSU Presidents Advisory Board. Rob Arkley has served on the boards of the Paci c Legal Foundation and Access Humboldt. The Keynote speaker was to have been Andrew Breitbart who passed away on March 1st. His friend Ann Corkery, of Washington, D.C., shared insights into the life of Andrew and how he made his work about truth. Candidate Dan Roberts, running for the 2nd Congressional District seat from Marin County was introduced as well. It was a special time to visit with friends. Congratulations to all
The event drew a handful of the local #Occupy Protestors. Lora Canzoneri caught some of the action, and her photo was featured by The McKinleyville Press on Facebook: Heres Dennis Mayo serving shrimp to protesters outside the recent Humboldt Republican annual dinner.

Serving Humboldt County Since 1932

Daniel Webster (1782- 1852) was a leading statesman and served as a U.S. Congressman, senator and as Secretary of State for three di erent presidents. In a speech before the Historical Society of NewYork, he said, If we and our posterity shall be true to the Christian religion, if we and they shall live always in the fear of God, and shall respect His commandments, if we and they shall maintain just moral sentiments and such conscientious convictions of duty as shall control the heart and life, we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country. But if we and our posterity reject religious institutions and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, tri e with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity. I would conclude with these wise words that our nation needs much prayer at this time in our history.

Food for Thought

Presidents Message
Springtime has truly arrived and our county welcomes it with open arms.

Pictured: JoAnn Stanhope, Kathrin Burleson and Terry Roberts at our Membership Spring Tea. More pics inside

And at our May 17th luncheon, we welcome Tom Del Beccaro, Chairman of the California Republican Party. It is a rare opportunity, and a big part of who we are, that we get to meet with state leaders. Tom has visited many of the Republican Womens Clubs throughout the state and we are pleased that he is visiting both Del Norte and Humboldt Counties. A second county event, HGOP Townhall with Tom Del Boccaro, organized by the Humboldt County Republican Party, is scheduled for that same evening at the Eureka Womens Club, 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. Please mark the date and bring your friends along. On May 31st, HGOP Art and Other Fine Things Auction & Tri Tip Dinner will take place in Blue Lake Casino at 6 pm; see details on the back page, and get your tickets now. Our club prepared busily for our April events. Our Spring Tea was a delightful success with sun and fun! I cannot say enough about the event each year, how Terry, Linda, Margaret and the team make it ow so nicely and how the delicious food was savored by every palate! The classy style show from Ferndale Clothing and the owers from Sun Valley Floral were a beautiful reminder that spring is indeed here! Thank you, Karen and the models! With red, white and blue splashes and oral sprays, we celebrated by participating in the 47th Rhododendron Parade. Leading the way were Amanda and Ron Sachs, sporting our grand banner. With the theme, Service Above Self- A tribute to Veterans, we invited veteran Art Chase to ride in style in our vintage car, the 1917 Stutz Bearcat, kindly provided by Harper Motors for us this year. Laurene Carlson and Pat Ponnay, with her granddaughters Jamie and Lilly, graced the car as well. Our caravan was completed by Carol and Henry Del Biaggio in their red truck, with Margaret Sta ord, Marilyn St. John and me enjoying the enthusiastic families along the way! ~ A great day indeed. A special Wine & Light Hors-d'oeuvres Reception is planned for our June meeting, Friday, June 22, 6:30 p.m., at the Baywood Golf and Country Club. We are pleased to welcome Peter Friedman, a former FBI agent and an invigorating and highly sought-after speaker you wont want to miss. Several members have heard him speak on various topics involving "The Threat of Islam to America" at CFRW-ND events, and this compelled us to invite him here. Please view the details enclosed and call promptly for a pre-paid reservation to this limited seating event. Our hope is that your friends, husbands, young adults or college students in your families will be attending. This is our future he is talking about...please become informed!

Ways & Means

On The National Front:


Have you heard about the Republican#WarOnWomen?
Ladies, we have a lot of work to do before we clean out the White House. First, we must be diligent in spreading the truth as you will hear none of it from the so-called mainstream press. Count on the press, the liberals and all the other Obamanites to continue to spread lies and half-truths until election day. Spending a couple hours with all you ladies at our Membership Tea led me to believe that we are the norm, but most of the news media says just the opposite. Dont listen to their liberal lies! What can we do? We can set people straight when they repeat some of the latest garbage such as the fabricated war against women. Honestly, how did they think that one up? This war supposedly started because many of us decided we didnt want our tax dollars going to pay for womens birth control. Today, the darling of tacky dressing, Michelle, said We made history because of taxpayer birth control. (The First Lady could save us a fortune if she red her clothing detailthey certainly dont know the rst thing about class and designbut that is fodder for another article.) Its hard to even type this with a straight face. Getting birth control paid for by other people is something to be proud of??? Did I miss something, like common sense doesnt make sense anymore? If this is the new norm, I think I should be entitled to taxpayer paid monthly haircuts. My hair grows faster than everyone elses and, if my haircuts are not subsidized, that could put a damper on my frivolous spending. If I had haircuts as often as that poor law school woman has sex, I would have no funds left to pay for food, gas, house payments or nights out with my husband. Where is the humanity, I ask? How can I possibly be expected to trudge through life in constant need of a much deserved haircut? And while we are at it how about free manicures as well? Think about it my request makes about as much sense as anything we are likely to see or hear from the loony left! And nally I would like to see some new bumper stickers that say Women for Romney ght against liberal lies! I would paper my car with them!

CALL TO ACTION:

Americanism Report
TOP 12 REASONS TO VOTE DEMOCRAT
1.
I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies pro ts of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isnt.

"STOP THE LIES ABOUT WOMEN"


Vice President Joe Biden suggested on Wednesday that the GOP's opposition to the Democrat version of a domestic violence bill will give the green light to male violence against women. This is simply a lie.

Tell The White House and Senate Democrats to

CALL ON THE WHITE HOUSE AND SENATE DEMOCRATS TO STOP TELLING LIES ABOUT WOMEN!

2. 3. 4. 5.

I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would. I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is ne as long as nobody is o ended by it. I vote Democrat because Im way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers,rapists, thugs, and thieves. I vote Democrat because I believe that people who cant tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will disappear in ten years because of Global Warming if I dont start driving a Prius or a Chevy Volt.

President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats are playing political games and exploiting women in the process with lies and irresponsible rhetoric to push their agenda. It's time for us to call for a return to the facts and responsible rhetoric surrounding the important issues our country faces. President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats have exploited recent debates over issues like the President's insurance mandate that violated the United States Constitution or the recent reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. Republicans have voted for and supported the reauthorization of the bipartisan Violence Against Women Act since it was rst passed in 1994. Republicans support the reauthorization of the legislation, but are opposed to the expansions including additional de cit spending that Democrats are attempting to ram through. Their strategy has been to use outrageous lies and irresponsible rhetoric that shifts the debate from the facts to misconceptions about Republicans. In the meantime, they are able to force their political agenda in the process without public scrutiny.

Why?

6. 7. 8.

I vote Democrat because Im not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive. I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security bene ts. I vote Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make pro ts for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see t.

Republican women have had enough.


It's time to take a stand. So pick up your phone and give the White House and Democrat leadership a call.

9.

Tell the DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP to STOP TELLING LIES that EXPLOIT WOMEN WHILE ADVANCING A POLITICAL AGENDA.
Tell President Obama and Senate Democrats to work with Republicans to develop serious solutions to serious problems.

I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution regularly to suit some fringe folks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

10. 11. 12.

I vote Democrat because I think that its better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill for our own because it might upset some useless endangered beetle, gopher, or sh. I vote Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised HOPE AND CHANGE. I vote Democrat because my head is so rmly buried in the sand(or up my nether regions) that i know Ill never have another point of view.

Mamie Eisenhower Library Project


Mary Scott presented a class set of the novel, "Toliver's Secret" to Marca Kime and Cathy Dickerson Humboldt County O ce of Education HERC. It is the story of a ten year old girl who crosses enemy lines to deliver a loaf of bread containing a message for the patriots. HERC personnel tells me that it has already been requested by a school and will go out to them this week. They were so very appreciative. The advantage of donating books to HERC (Humboldt Educational Resource Center) is that the books are available to almost all county schools and will be used by several classes during the school year.

Legislative Report

California

NO on PROPS 28 & 29: Talking Points


Proposition 29
Proposition 29, or the Cancer Research Act, will be appearing on California's June 2012 ballot. The proposition will increase taxes on cigarettes by ve cents per cigarette and one dollar per package of cigarettes. The supporters of Prop 29 are trying to convince the public the revenue from this tax increase would go towards the research and prevention of cancer but, instead, the $735 million collected by the tax increase will go towards funding a new state-appointed commission of politicians and bureaucrats. The commission would be run by political appointees and would operate without any oversight from voters or the legislature. In fact only 20% of the tax revenue will go towards tobacco prevention while the other 80% would go towards administrative costs, real estate investments, construction, recreation resources and a variety of things unrelated to cancer research. Most importantly, none of these tax revenues would go towards solving our budget crisis or improving education and healthcare. Additionally, if the proposition is passed, it cannot be amended by the legislature, only by another ballot measure. Essentially, the result of Proposition 29 would be an unchecked bureaucratic agency working in the interests of career politicians until 2026 while our budget crisis grows worse and our de cit grows larger. Please visit www.noon29.com for more information.

From CFRW:

A debate is going on among demographers who study how cities have developed and will continue to grow. Scholars are guessing how California cities and counties will look in the future. They contend the demand for traditional large urban lots will decrease and that Californians desire for renting and multi-unit housing will increase. They feel their smart growth philosophy embodied in SB 375, sponsored by Steinberg in 2008, will encourage transit-oriented development and discourage urban sprawl. Never mind that a Pew charitable trust survey in 2010 found that 73% of Americans thought it important to own a home and a Public Policy institute of California found 86% of renters want to eventually own a home. I cant help but wonder what it cost taxpayers for these demographers to come up with their study? Why are they trying to force Californians into something they clearly do not want? It seems to me it shows how todays bureaucrats and politicians are stuck in the control mode and insist on herding us like sheep in the direction they think best. Never mind that regulations and no-growth policies make it di cult to build anything and, with high unemployment because of government, makes it more and more di cult to realize the American dream of home ownership.

Proposition 28

Proposition 28 is another misguided proposition on the June ballot. Despite what its supporters would have the public believe, it increases the amount of time politicians can serve in the State Assembly and drastically increases the amount of time politicians can serve in the State Senate. Currently, there is a term limit of three two-year terms in the Assembly (six years) and a term limit of two four-year terms in the Senate (eight years). Prop 28 would allow politicians to serve 12 years in the Assembly or 12 years in the Senate. Although it would cap the amount of time spent in the California Legislature at 12 years total, it would double the term limit in Assembly and increase the term limit in the Senate by 50%. Supporters of Prop 28 are attempting to trick the public into believing the proposition would reduce the amount of time spent in o ce but, in actuality, it would increase most members' time in o ce, especially considering most legislators do not serve the full 14 years in both Assembly and Senate. Considering that most Californians are unhappy with the job the state legislature is doing, giving them more time in o ce would only increase their power. The proposition is also strongly supported by labor unions and special interest groups who would bene t by an increase in legislators' time in o ce. Lastly, lobbyists would not have to deal with turnover in the Legislature as often, meaning there would be a decrease in the amount of money lobbyists and special interest groups would have to spend to get candidates elected.

Women At The Table


We Republican Women are building our team. This election cycle we demand our seats at the table. Please continue to send names of Republican Women running for o ce to advocate@cfrw.org. We would like to post the names of all Republican Women running for o ce across California on our website!
