‘Politicians don’t lie only if the truth serves better’

My father was born in 1899, grew up in West Texas, had a third-grade education and served his country in WWI.

He tried to instill in his two sons the American Dream and right and wrong, especially when it came to politics. He had a few “laws” he lived by and I would like to pass them on:

Community should rally around local veterans

If this county honors and respects its veterans as you claim you do, why are you letting the county Board of Supervisors get away with the way they are ignoring the disgraceful condition of the veterans building?

Why are you not showing support by being at their meetings en masse and voicing your vet support whether it’s on their agenda or not? You are a free people provided by the cost of your veterans. Act like the free people you are.

‘Public debate’ needed to solve air travel issue

This letter is in response to the article “SkyWest to retire prop planes” in the Nov. 20 edition of the Del Norte Triplicate.

On reading the article one might assume that this was a sudden decision by SkyWest, but this is far from the truth. In the Oct. 6 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology (AW&ST) in the article titled “Regional Giant” on pages 42–43, SkyWest clearly states that their goal is to transition to larger regional jets than currently in the fleet. In this same article SkyWest mentions its plans to eliminate nearly all of its 50-seat jet aircraft in favor of larger regional jet aircraft such as the 76-seat Embraer 175. Neither of these aircraft can operate from the Crescent City airport at full passenger loads and maximum fuel.

Miscommunication on donation to Sr. Center

My name is Charlaine Mazzei. I am the executive director of the Del Norte Senior Center. In response to the Nov. 18 letter from Mr. Ruel Wilson (“$10K donation meant
to save Sr. Center salad”), I would like to apologize for any offense my quoted statements in Saturday’s Triplicate article may have caused. When speaking to the Triplicate, I was not aware Mr. Wilson wished to have his generous donation publicly acknowledged in honor of his wife, Mary Judy Wilson. I identified the donation as coming from an anonymous donor to maintain privacy. I did not intend to slight  Mrs. Wilson or her husband and apologize if I inadvertently did so.

Jetty’s relative safety must be considered

Del Norte County presents many hazards for those who participate in exercise or leisure activities. One can be swept out to sea while walking on the beach with a strong tidal flux. One can be mauled by a bear or mountain lion while jogging on a trail. One may even be thrashed to the side of a road while walking or cycling and being hit by a “sneaker” automobile traveling on Pebble Beach Drive or other narrow roads in the area.

Veterans deserve better than $6 charge for dinner

Is this the way we treat our Veterans? I was shocked when I read in Saturday’s newspaper (“Honoring their service”) that Veterans not in uniform or active duty would be charged $6 for their chicken steak dinner at the Veterans Day dinner.

A caring community can prevent tragedies 

How do we support Del Norte Community Health Center to bring better health care to the citizens of Del Norte County?

‘Harebrained’ proposal to fine good Samaritans

The silly idea of passing a law to fine good Samaritans who give charity to the downtrodden will cost the taxpayers money and only make lawyers happy, who will sue to block enforcement of an unconstitutional, harebrained, grandstanding concoction.

Move forward with our health care, not backward

Let’s go forward, not backward. Located at the intersection of Highway 199 and 101, Crescent City is a natural service center for the people of northwestern California and southwestern Oregon. But the lack of one service literally drives these same people away. We waste time and gasoline to get to Eureka, Grants Pass or Medford for medical services that could be provided here.

Associate justice races give voters little choice

Welcome to the old Soviet Union.  For those of you who are too young to recall what I am writing about, elections in the Soviet Union had over a 90 percent voter turnout. And no one on the ballot ever lost. Of course, voters only had one slate of candidates to choose from. Either you voted “yes” for the candidate or “no” for the candidate. There was no other choice.
