Public outrage voiced at meeting of healthcare dist. 

The Del Norte Healthcare District board elected Kevin Caldwell chairman Tuesday at a lively meeting attended by about 60 people. Most were there to offer opinions on recent media coverage or to question board member Clarke Moore, who was out of town attending his mother's funeral services.

Brookings PD: Crime surge from Del Norters

The Brookings Police Department is seeing an increase in crimes committed by residents of neighboring Del Norte County, and it might need an additional officer soon to address the ensuing problems.

The issue was part of a Brookings City Council workshop Monday about city priorities for the next 24 months, which include the health and safety of residents.

“We’re getting a lot of calls,” said Police Chief Chris Wallace. “Some significant crimes are increasing. There is truly no border between Crescent City and Brookings anymore. We’re getting a lot of those people up here. There’s no difference between them and us, now.”

A month later, river still too high to retrieve car

More than a month after crashing into the Smith River on a stretch of U.S. 199 near Gasquet, a vehicle thought to have been carrying two Crescent City men remains underwater with little prospect of being recovered soon.

“The river’s definitely going to have to go way down,” said Terry McNamara, coordinator for the Del Norte Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Team.

National Weather Service data shows a height of roughly 12 feet for the Smith River near Jedediah Smith State Park on Dec. 5, when the collision took place. Following heavy rainfall, the water level rose in the ensuing weeks, reaching a peak of almost 34 feet near mid-December.

Wood proposes more time to craft local pot ordinance

Crescent City Council has until March 1 to introduce and adopt a medical marijuana ordinance otherwise the City will have to abide by whatever laws the state comes up with.

In an effort to provide jurisdictions with some relief from the tight deadline, District 2 State Assemblymen Jim Wood has offered up an amendment that will be heard on the floor of the Senate Rules Committee on Thursday.

If AB 21 passes it would strike the deadline indefinitely, giving local jurisdictions the time they need to put together a well considered ordinance.

“It was never our intention to place such a short timeline on local lawmakers,” Wood said in a press release. “The current deadline gives jurisdictions just 65 days to consult stakeholders, learn about the industry, and write good policy; that is not enough time.”
