This month the Composite Index dropped under 100 for the first time since January 1997. The Index stands at 99.9 -- a 5.2% drop from last month. With two or three leading indicators showing signs of slowing accompanied with a decline in all sectors for which data were available, the Humboldt County economy is showing many signs of slowing. With gas prices still rising in Humboldt County as well, the combined effect seems to be a somewhat cheerless lead in to the holiday season.
