C.C. should follow  lead of towns that ban PWCs

In regard to Jet Skis (personal watercraft or PWC) and their impact on South Beach: I, my family and friends have enjoyed this beach for decades. We stay all day, swim, sunbathe, surf, boogie board and skim board. My children and their friends grew up on this stretch of beach and still share stories of time spent here. People from all over Southern Oregon and Northern California play, fish and enjoy the beach.

Supervisor Gitlin’s column on Sutter Health proves he’s a champion for DN

Many thanks to our supervisor, Roger Gitlin, for his excellent and very clear editorial titled “Sutter Health does not play nicely in sandbox” (April 18). We need more champions like Supervisor Gitlin who are not afraid to call it as it is and to make sure that the citizens of Crescent City are kept aware of what this powerful conglomerate is trying to do to this community and to the physicians who will not bow to its corrupt attempt to take our hospital entirely out of local control and ownership. If you haven’t read this editorial, please go online to the Triplicate and read it.

Caldwell’s dedication to Del Norte is obvious

It seems Dr. Kevin Caldwell, one of our county’s most senior and well-respected doctors, is not afraid to speak out on our behalf. On Thursday, Dr. Caldwell was chosen by Triplicate readers as their favorite health professional.  Then on Saturday, we read the op-ed by Supervisor Roger Gitlin (“Coastal Voices: Sutter Health does not play nicely in sandbox,” April 18) which recognizes Dr. Caldwell for taking a stand against the corporate plans of Sutter Health, which are not in the best interest of our community. I applaud Dr. Caldwell for standing up for us, and Supervisor Gitlin for getting involved and telling the story.

Picking McClure would be ethical violation

I attended last Thursday’s Local Transportation Commission meeting to verify what I had heard through the grapevine — that Supervisor Martha McClure had applied for a $34,000 contract to be the project manager for the state-funded Safe Routes to Schools program. Although I had never previously attended any of the obscure LTC meetings, it was confirmed there that Ms. McClure was the recommended choice by Director Tamera Leighton.

Jet Skiers will respect others and environment 

This letter is in response to the letter submitted by Rick Smith (“Jet Skiers will ruin weekend for others,” April 9) regarding the local Jet Ski gathering that will be hosted on the weekend of April 17–19. 

First, let me clarify: This is a gathering of friends and family — not an organized “event.” Several of the local residents have simply invited some of their out-of-town friends and family to join them at the beach that weekend to enjoy a few days of fun surfing the waves. We love our hometown, and we are excited and proud to show our friends and family all our beautiful area has to offer.

Watercraft users show little regard for others

Hello. My name is Lori Ridgway, and I live in Crescent City with my husband and two young children, ages 6 and 3. At the south end of town on Highway 101 there is a designated bathing beach called South Beach, one of Crescent City’s finest natural attractions. The problem is within the past couple of years the beachgoers, surfers, stand-up paddle boarders, boogie boarders, kids playing in the waves, even animals have been unable to enjoy freely in a peaceful and positive way.

Support music education in LCAP

On behalf of the students of the Del Norte County Unified School District’s elementary schools, I would like to thank Lynn McKenna and the Redwood Coast Music Festivals for donating a trumpet to our music program. Since we have many students who are only able to participate in band if they can use a school instrument, adding an instrument to our inventory enables more students to join the program.

City-owned properties in need of maintenance, too

After reading “Sidewalk care is in city code, but also right thing to do” (March 28), I think maybe it’s time Ms. Murray walks our downtown area and areas owned by the city. I think Ms. Murray needs to open her eyes. She could see the weeds growing in city sidewalks, tree wells and city-owned landscape areas. 

Budget time is coming. Maybe it’s time that the city hires two full-time park people to keep our downtown area looking nice. Currently we only have two people working in our parks, and they spend most of their time mowing the grass in the parks.

Nation is reaping what it sowed in election

The Bible tells us in Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” 

America is paying the price for electing a man who has no problem lying to the American people. He has no problem in insulting England by returning a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. On June 4, 2009, President Obama talked about America’s “faults” in Egypt. He did not visit Israel until March 20, 2013; while there he visited the West Bank (Palestinian Authority), indicating Israel was no better a friend to America than Muslim countries who state they want to eliminate Israel. In early June 2010 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was ushered into the White House through the back door; the president did not dine with the P.M., no press conference, and no photo op. This president has shown disdain for the leader of Israel from the beginning.

Local law enforcement’s hard work is appreciated

Not many days ago there were many members of local law enforcement putting their lives at risk for public safety in Smith River.

Last weekend I saw the Highway Patrol out in force and making a lot of stops to enforce traffic laws in town.
