Coastal Voices: Berkowitz v. Del Norte Board of Education

Editor’s note: It is the Triplicate’s election season policy to limit election-related missives to letters of 400 words or less. This Coastal Voices is an exception to allow fairness in response to regular Triplicate columnist Bob Berkowitz’s “Did You Know” column on the same topic printed last week (“Was Measure A fix in all the time?” May 3).

Since February, political consultant Bob Berkowitz has been writing an opinion column in the Triplicate. Although I rarely agree with Bob, I respect his right to express his view. However, Bob’s column last Saturday crossed the bounds of propriety. His irresponsible accusation that a recent vote by the County Board of Education was “fixed” is not supported by a shred of evidence.


California Focus: Natural gas exports will raise prices, and soon

Because of hydraulic fracturing in states like North Dakota and Wyoming, Californians and other Americans have enjoyed lower natural gas prices over the last two winters than anytime in the last 15 years. That continues right up to this moment.


Did you know? Was Measure A fix in all the time?

I have often made the mistake of making a decision after hearing only one side of an argument. When I discovered all of the facts I got a different perspective that presented the problem in a different light. Making that mistake as an individual is one thing. Making it as a member of a public body that spends taxpayer dollars is another matter.


Coastal Voices: Let's think big about Del Norte

I loved Richard Wiens’ final editorial (“Appreciating Del Norte a Matter of Perspective,” April 17). The whole town and the Triplicate will sorely miss him and his wife, Neighbors editor Laura Wiens. 


Did You Know? Questions to ask when candidates pass through

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s open season on political candidates. Here at home we get to ask the candidates questions at various forums and they do their best to give straight answers. Our county is so small that a person running for local office can’t ignore us because we will run into them everywhere from the local supermarket to the gas station.


Did you know? Fighting technology will not save jobs

What are your friends up to? The first place I look is on Facebook. Even though I hardly ever post anything there, I do enjoy seeing what everyone else is doing, saying and learning.

So, as I was enjoying breakfast at Fisherman's Restaurant recently with my trusty Ipad for company, I came across Greg Forsht’s post.


Coastal Voices: Same services offered under Critical Access

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of recognizing our staff at The Sutter Coast Hospital Annual Awards Ceremony.

We recognized Clinical Ladder recipients (nurses taking on special projects for the betterment of our patients), employees of the month and employee of the year and our long-tenured employees. 


Coastal Voices: Healthcare District working to prevent hospital takeover

As a lifelong resident of Del Norte County, local healthcare provider, and chair of the Del Norte Healthcare District Board, I write to inform readers on the history of Sutter Health in our region, and how your Healthcare District Board is working to preserve and expand your access to affordable health care.


Coastal Voices: Look to future, not a catastrophic past

“Want to vacation in the tsunami capital of the U.S.?”

That’s an unlikely sentence to read, isn’t it? Can you imagine anyone saying it out loud and actually getting a positive response? Who are we appealing to? 


Church Notebook: Good Friday, Easter, Passover next month

I don’t know what’s mixed with our recent rains, but I don’t think it’s just water.

Usually a good rain does a great wash job on my truck (it’s white), but lately whatever the stuff is, it’s sticking pretty good. Perhaps it’s pollen, though it’s brown rather than yellow.
