You know how much of a mess the clothing sections at Eureka Target have been lately? Since Target is currently understaffed, some locals have decided to take it upon themselves to tidy up tables and clothes racks and help make the Target shopping experience a little more enjoyable for their community.

After posting a send a message to facebook Calling for people to help her clean up Target, Michelle Bailey and her family spent part of their Thursday night folding and hanging clothes at Target. Several other women and children also joined.

“It’s so overwhelming walking through this 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 good week to get Target back in order…”

The volunteers may not have put the whole store in order, but they certainly made a dent in the mess.

Yesterday, while saying goodbye to one of our colleagues, we called Facebook a rotten social media platform. (One of many garbage social media platforms.)

We stick to that.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t any bright spots. And one of the brightest spots locally is the Hoopa Office of Emergency Services. Hoopa OES broadcasts daily or sometimes two or three times a day short videos, often with beautiful pictures of the valley and always full of useful information.

Lately, with all the fires and smoke affecting the area, the office’s charismatic Frank Telles is on camera almost every day with the daily smoke report. Today’s report can be found below.

Give Hoopa OES A trace! Nuniwhtsis-te!
