Welcome to ROUNDFILED, one of the Internet’s newest features. It is brought to you by the fine folks at LoCO Labs.
Many items fly across the Outpost radar every day. Not all of them rise to postworthiness. ROUNDFILED is scientifically engineered to squeeze whatever valuable residue it can out of the daily slag heap, then to blend those juices together in a nutritious news cocktail.

Local graphic artist Douglas Shrock checked-in to the LoCO‘s Facebook page with his plan for beautifying Eureka. He explains his vision:
I am an artist. I love the good things about Humboldt. Here is an idea to make the southern entry into Eureka a little more pleasant and hopeful.
I just quickly modeled the sign and pasted it over a Google screen grab, but it gives and idea of how it might look. The one in Willits is nice, and a similar archway here would continue a cohesive look to 101. Fortuna could have one from the south and Arcata could have one from the north.
Tell us how it is not possible to love this:
