Letters to the Editor June 22, 2011

Something must be done to stop people like man who robbed us

A few days ago, a fellow came to our house saying he could do any and all labor, carpentry, mechanical, electrical, yard work, etc.

He said he was trying to help his sister who had several small children that needed food and clothing. He said someone slashed his tires and stole his gas.

Our yard needed mowing so he was mowing with our riding lawn mower until he broke a belt.

He came to the door and said he needed to use our bathroom. While we thought he was in the bathroom, he was actually in another room where he found our jewelry.

To make a long story short, that lawn mowing cost us nine rings (that I can remember), four of which were wedding sets, other rings had been keepsakes — my mom’s and my aunt’s — also watches and $125 cash.

Since this happened to us, we have found out that this person has no vehicle. He has taken other people’s prescription drugs, their watches, wallets and other things he can turn over for money.

Oh yes, and the sister he said he was trying to help is married.

To do nothing about a person like this is to encourage him in his “bad habits,” in my opinion.

I hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else.

A wonderful Father’s Day was spent at Anna Wulf House


A memorable Father’s Day was spent at Anna Wulf House because of a raffle ticket won at Emblem Club.

We arrived at 4 p.m. along with another couple from Chicago. We were graciously met by Mitzi for a tour of the residence and shown to our lovely rooms. With keys in hand we set out to tour our beautiful Crescent City.

Next morning we awoke to the aroma of fresh coffee and a breakfast which consisted of a lovely fruit compote followed by sausage and poppyseed pancakes and juice.

It was a wonderful Father’s Day treat and we’ll have to do it again!

Thanks to all who came to assist me when I had an accident

I would like to thank all the people who came to assist when I had my accident on May 31.

The employees at Dollar Tree store, Del Norte Ambulance crew, Sutter Coast Hospital and the people I didn’t know. Thank you.

Homosexuality, perversions common now, but still wrong


Things just never change, do they?

In the Old Testament days of the Bible, Lot (Abraham’s nephew) saw the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by God due to the sinfulness and the foolishness of the citizens of those cities. They were deep in their sins of homosexuality and sexual perversions.

I don’t believe Sodom and Gomorrah were ever rebuilt.

And then later on in Noah’s day, all humans, with the exception of Noah and his immediate family, were destroyed in the flood.

Sexual perversions and promiscuities are very common right now and maybe the indulgers think it is the “now” way to act. It is not!

Sodom and Gomorrah, here we come again!

Inappropriate comments made about Westfall in her absence


At home watching the City Council meeting last Monday evening, I was disturbed by the statements made by Tim Hoone about Councilwoman Donna Westfall, who was absent.

Thank goodness Jim Barrett was in the audience and rebuked Mr. Hoone.
