You know how the clothing sections at the Eureka Target have been a big, hot mess lately? Since Target is currently short-staffed, some local folks decided to take it upon themselves to tidy up the clothing tables and racks, and help make the Target shopping experience a little more enjoyable for their community.
After posting a message to Facebook calling for folks to help her clean up the Target, Michelle Bailey and her family spent a part of their Thursday night folding and hanging the clothes at Target. Several other women and kiddos joined too.
“It is so overwhelming walking through that store,” Bailey wrote on Facebook. “I can’t even imagine being an employee there right now. It would take about 30 people working non stop for a solid week to get Target back in order…”
The volunteers may not have not put the whole store back in order, but they did certainly make a dent in the mess.

Yesterday, in saying goodbye to one of our colleagues, we called Facebook a garbage social media platform. (One of many garbage social media platforms.)
We stand by this.
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t bright spots. And one of the brightest spots, locally, is the Hoopa Office of Emergency Services. Hoopa OES puts out daily or sometimes twice- or thrice-daily short videos, often with beautiful shots of the Valley and always chock full of useful information.
Lately, with all the fires and smoke affecting the area, the office’s charismatic Frank Telles is in front of the camera most days with the daily smoke report. Today’s report can be found below.
Give Hoopa OES a follow! Nuniwhtsis-te!
