  1. Anyone who wants to donate is welcome to click the button on the right-hand column. To our knowledge, Robin Arkley Jr. hasn’t availed himself of this opportunity yet.

    As to somebody arrested by the Fortuna Police being a relative of somebody else — how does that implicate them in the alleged crime? We don’t run tabloid stories and sensationalize local tragedies just to play ‘gotcha’ against perceived political opponents — we’ll leave that to the Lost Coast Outpost/North Coast Journal gang.
