(A note from Julie Timmons)
Welcome to our world! The unique beauty of California’s far North Coast is at once peaceful and exciting. Where else in the world can you watch a 40-foot whale from the Klamath River Bridge, then go home to find a deer in the front yard? You don’t need religion to feel blessed.
We are a micro-enterprise, working from home in sight of the redwood forests. I’m fourth-generation Humboldt, and attended Eureka High and HSU before graduating from UC Davis with honors degrees in English and History. I was a field agent and hearing officer for the National Labor Relations Board, and worked in labor relations and project management at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. Back on the Redwood Coast, I managed the community employment program at Redwoods United, then worked at the California State Department of Rehabilitation, from which I retired in 1999.
All these jobs involved writing, and all along writing and publishing was what attracted me. When I was eight, I produced a newspaper (The K Street Journal, circulation: 5) on my grandmother’s old Underwood. I wrote for trade magazines including American Brewer and was a columnist for the North Coast Journal when it was a monthly. In all these positions, the common threads were: integrity, fairness and the ability to express my own or others’ thoughts.
With modern technology, it’s entirely possible to live as harried and stressful a lifestyle on the beautiful North Coast as do the cubicle slaves of Silicon Valley. I choose not to. I believe that old-fashioned service, efficiency and value never go out of style. We are a local enterprise and we look forward to meeting you.
But DON’T look for us on Facebook! We won’t be there.
