Pool serves wide variety of residents, deserves support

As a regular swimmer at Fred Endert Pool, I was encouraged to read that the City Council voted unanimously for Rural Human Services and to use Community Development Block Grant funds to help offset the operations cost of Fred Enderts Pool. Our public pool is one of our community’s finest treasures but unfortunately it operates at a loss and struggles to get the financial support it deserves. There is no other public facility in this county that serves such a diverse population by providing exercise and promoting healthy living for so many.

Special day at fairgrounds gives students rare experiences with a menagerie of animals 

Natalia Cardenas could barely see over the rim of the three barrels but if she was intimidated, she didn’t show it. 

The 6-year-old special education student from Bess Maxwell Elementary School grasped her steed and raced pell mell around the makeshift show ring with peers, teachers, fairgrounds staff and Del Norte High School teens cheering her on.

Election: Gitlin hints at seeking recount

Unless something changes by 1 p.m. Wednesday it looks more and more like there will be a runoff election come November in the District 1 Del Norte County supervisor’s race.

The runoff would pit top vote-getter incumbent Roger Gitlin against challenger and Crescent City Councilor Kathryn Murray, who collected the second largest number of votes in the three-way race.

Water CSD sues city, rancheria over casino

A proposed new casino by Elk Valley Rancheria is at the center of a lawsuit accusing Crescent City and others of hijacking the Bertsch-Ocean View Community Services District water system.

The Del Norte Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), Crescent City and the Elk Valley Rancheria are defendants in the suit filed April 15 in Del Norte Superior Court by the Bertsch-Ocean View Community Services District.

Dollar General store eyed for Smith River

Although approval for a new 9,100-square foot Dollar General store in Smith River is in the works, the company can’t begin construction until county and state subdivision requirements are met.

According to Alexis Kelso of the Del Norte County Community Development Department’s Planning Division, the Dollar General corporation has applied for a subdivision of land. The 7 1/2-acre parcel of land is at the southwest corner of Timber Avenue and U.S. 101, just south of TMT Manufacturing and a Western Communications printing plant, which publishes the Triplicate and Curry Coastal Pilot.

Affordable housing complex for seniors pursued

A new affordable housing complex could soon be rising from the vacant lot once home to the eyesore and blighted El Patio Budget Motel.

An extension of the Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) between Crescent City and an Arcata-based developer for the development of a new three-story, affordable housing complex for seniors in the downtown area, was unanimously approved by city council members on June 6.

The agreement between Danco Group and the city was initiated in 2012. Community Development Director Eric Taylor said, “RDA funds expected for the project were lost when Governor Brown abolished the RDA.”
