HUMBOLDT Bill and Sharon Barton have a chore ahead of them. In order to negotiate a route to property they own just outside Humboldts city limit to the east, they must clear small trees, limbs and brush.
Involved is a lane a couple of blocks long, that while not officially a street, was once graded by the city, said Bill Barton.

Consequently, whatever gravel back when the Neoshos rock was dredged for roads and streets found on the lane was put their unofficially.
