Kids’ march against tobacco, drugs inspiring

March 18, 2015, has marked the second and now annual anti-tobacco march to City Hall, where kids held their handmade signs and marched through the streets of Crescent City to help spread awareness of the horrible effects of tobacco, alcohol and drugs and how they felt about it. The march started at Crescent Elk Middle School and ended at Tri-Counties Bank, with 238 students, 8–10 Reach for Success mentors, full A.S.P staff and a whopping 40 parent volunteers!

Wind chimes add to Pebble Beach visit

First, I would like to thank the man and lady from Bend, Ore., who shared their mother’s wind chimes with the people of Crescent City. 

Then I would like to thank Donna Trone for sharing what she discovered about the wind chimes that were hung along Pebble Beach, (“Mystery of wind chimes at Pebble Beach solved,” March 12). I was blessed to be able to enjoy some of them.

Upgrades to swimming pool are appreciated

I’m very grateful for all the city and county folks who recently upgraded our Crescent City swimming pool. It’s a marvelous place that I visit daily. The murals are spectacular and the water is always warm.

Mystery of wind chimes at Pebble Beach solved

Early one Saturday morning while looking out my front window to see if the whales were showing off, I saw a man with a step ladder and a lady holding a box. Then I saw her hand up what looks like a wind chime and he hangs it in the tree. My curious eyes watched as five different kinds were hung. He folded the ladder and they moved on south along the cliffs.

At this point we decided to walk our small dog over to check out this mystery. As we passed our neighbor out in his backyard, I greeted him and asked if he knew anything about the mystery across the street. He answered yes.

Triplicate columnists are informative, interesting

My husband and I routinely read the Triplicate each morning it comes; he gets the front section and I read the “B” section until he finishes. Usually this is pretty quick work for me, but to my surprise this Saturday, there were two very well-written columns that are worth mentioning.

First, thank you, Lucas Brug, for your “Birds of a Feather” column. One of many, I hope. Not being an expert birder, I appreciate the information you shared. I agree that the local economy is benefited by such hobbies; I happened to be at the harbor when the common scoter was visiting. I befriended a woman who had driven all night from Sacramento, taken a sick day off of work to go birding in our area and see the scoter. She asked for lunch recommendations; I was able to give her suggestions. She was headed up to Smith River (another birding opportunity) and I told her about Lucky 7 Casino.

Time before vaccinations wasn’t the ‘good old days’ 

In the Feb. 24 issue of your paper, you published a long letter (“Vaccination scare preys on ill-informed,” by Dan Schultz) that attempted to dissuade people from measles vaccination. The writer uses current statistics to make a point that only a few people get measles, so it’s not a problem worth the risk of adverse effects of the vaccination. I would hope that your readers would recognize that today’s situation is different from that of the time before vaccination became widespread.

Disgusted by inclusion of poacher’s comments

I am compelled to comment about the article “Bill takes swing at poachers” in the Feb. 24 issue of the Del Norte Triplicate. 

Those who know me understand that I am a passionate supporter of those people who steward our public lands. In particular, I have been very involved in fundraising for protection of redwood burl.

Fond memory of Joe Duncan 

When our daughter Becky was in high school, without any prodding from her mom and dad, she got her first job cleaning rooms at the Curly Redwood Lodge. When granddaughter Brittany was old enough to get a job, her mom told her, “Welcome to the real world!”

County should get tougher with Sutter

I’m a tad confused. Why is it that the Sutter folks say that our hospital is, basically, sucking the life out of the Sutter family when, according to their Regional President, Mike Cohill, the hospital turned a profit in the beginning of 2014? And that profit was also reported by Sutter CEO, Mitch Hanna!

If Sutter downsizes, expensive transfers are sure to increase

After reading so many other letters about Sutter Coast Hospital, I would like to tell readers why I oppose Sutter’s decision to downsize the hospital to a Critical Access Hospital.

I have a childhood kidney disorder which sometimes requires hospitalization. Last year I went to the Sutter Coast Emergency Room and was told I had to be transferred to another hospital. I’m not sure why I had to be transferred because the hospital in Redding gave me the same antibiotics I can get here. The point is, when I was discharged from the Redding hospital, I had no way to get home. The airfare home was $1,200, which I could not afford. The hospital wanted to send me to a homeless shelter.
