Airport to break ground on terminal

Nearly a decade in the making, the airport is poised to begin the nearly $20 million project to build the terminal.

Pets seized from owners

Fur, feathers and scales greeted county officials early this year at the execution of a search warrant for a residence on the 400 block of Murphy Avenue. 

Neighbors had complained of noise and stink. Others reported glimpsing a nasty scene when they went there to purchase a puppy advertised on Craigslist. 

Commotion and smell are well enough if you live in Fort Dick, said Code Enforcement Officer David Mason, but they become a problem when you live in a residential area.

Caltrans says no to guardrails

Guard rails are not a solution to the recent accidents on US Highway 199, around the 10.5 mile mark, said Caltrans Traffic Safety Chief, David Morgan during a presentation at the the Del Norte Local Transportation Commission meeting on Thursday. 

Concerns have been raised about that section of the highway following three crashes, two of them fatal, in the past five months in the same area. One occurred at the 10.3 mile mark to a vehicle heading southbound, and two involved vehicles heading northbound at the 10.5 mile mark.

Del Norte registers 900 new voters

Del Norte is among the top five counties in the state with the highest percentage increase in voter registration since 2012, according to the California Secretary of State. 

Almost 900 new voters have registered in Del Norte since April 2012, signifying a 7.3 percent increase in four years. 

County Clerk-Recorder Alissia Northrup attributed the growth to a rush of local interest, particularly with 3 out of 5 county supervisor districts up for election June 7 and a push in recent registration efforts by organizations such as the Del Norte Democratic Central Committee (DNDCC), the Del Norte Republicans and True North Organizing Network.
