Letters to the Editor May 19, 2012

Unfair to stereotype medipot patients based on individual

This letter is in response to Bobbi Evanow’s May 15 letter, “Medical marijuana patron near dispensary behaved rudely.”

Please don’t stereotype everybody into one group. Not all of us are “druggies.” Just because one person is giving you trouble doesn’t mean the rest are going to do it.

I park my car in the parking lot of the dispensary with my head held just as high as if I was going to a drug store to pick up a pain prescription. I show them my current recommendation, pay for my wares using my own money and go home.

Gitlin a successful businessman, adovocates smaller government

I am writing this letter in support of Roger Gitlin for the position of District 1 supervisor. Although I live in Gasquet, the election of all supervisor positions has a direct effect on the quality of life for all of us most fortunate to live in this beautiful area.

I have personally known Roger for about five years, while my wife has been a friend of Roger and his wife, Angie, for about 20 years. This is how I know Roger to be a successful businessman in both the knitwear industry and then a successful real estate broker, supervising approximately 10-15 employees in each endeavor. It is this crucial business experience that Roger Gitlin brings to his candidacy for supervisor.

Medical marijuana patron near dispensary behaved rudely

Regarding the May 3 letter, “Leave pot dispensaries alone, and go after real drug dealers,” the writer stated that people using them are not hurting anyone. Well, here is my experience with a user of one of our local dispensaries.

I own a business next to said dispensary. A van was parked in my driveway blocking the entrance gate. When I approached the driver and told him he was blocking the gate he said, “So?” I asked him to move and he refused, saying, “Who’s going to make me?” (Real mature.)

Animal Control staffing shortage can be solved with sponsor

Animals are suffering and dying here due to neglect and abuse because Animal Control has a shortage of employees and is not able to provide the needed services to Del Norte County.

Inside, the pound has been much improved over the last several years and the euthanasia rate has been dramatically reduced; however, due to budget cuts, the services in the field have been cut back drastically. One animal control officer is trying to do the job of four people, leaving animals and people at risk. Areas of the county have had services completely eliminated, such as on the reservations.

Thanks to City Council for passing noise ordinance

I, for one, would like to thank the City Council for passing an ordinance in helping the local authorities put a half nelson on the over-amplified automobile music — in time a full nelson. Thank you.

If anybody feels the same, please thank the City of Crescent City or the City Council in any way you choose, or just put a happy face on your next 12 or more water bills.

McNamer seems to have helped reduce county-city infighting

I have known Leslie McNamer for many years and I was very pleased when she was elected to the Board of Supervisors eight years ago.

In that time, she has worked very hard for District 1 and all of Del Norte County. It used to be that the county was always fighting each other and the city and the county were always suing each other. Since Leslie became a supervisor, there seems to be an effort to work together. That is good, because in this day and age, we can’t afford to waste time and money fighting each other.

Reasons to support candidates Gitlin and Gray for supervisor

Wow! The letters in last Saturday’s paper really caught my attention. Gay McWhirter was right — Martha McClure was booed loudly for her suggestion that we all go along with Jerry Brown’s proposed tax increase. While I in no way align myself with Ms. McClure’s way of thinking I was impressed with the determination in which she presented it.

Letter-writer Richard Miles says he will vote for McClure but not for Leslie McNamer stating that we need to ask ourselves “what has McNamer done for us recently?” That is a good question to ask this election. I am not in District 1, but if I was I would vote for Roger Gitlin. I do not think the Triplicate accurately reflected Mr. Gitlin’s comments in its article, but he is a bit right of center and so less likely to be accurately quoted.

Mr. Gitlin is enthusiastic about Del Norte County and wants small businesses to be welcomed and not legislated to death before they barely get to open their doors. He actually used local businesses to make his yard signs and handouts — which other candidates kept their money in Del Norte? He is also a friend to the private property owner, an issue near to my heart.

Leave pot dispensaries alone, and go after real drug dealers

I am writing in regards to the recent raid on one of the medical marijuana dispensaries here in town.

I feel everyone needs to just leave the dispensaries alone. The dispensaries and the people that use/run them are not hurting anyone. Medical marijuana is a medicine, not a drug.

Marijuana helps people just like me and you every day. Some people couldn’t have a day without pain without it.

Yellow ribbons have long history signifying many different things

In response to Wendy Beeson’s April 26 letter, “Yellow ribbon’s placement at vet’s office was inappropriate,” we live in such a small town and yet no one seems to know who put the yellow ribbons around the front entrance of Crescent Animal Medical Center.

You imply that it was disrespectful to the military? Apparently you are unaware that the yellow ribbon has a multitude of meanings. We commonly associate yellow ribbons with the Gulf War as we all began seeing them in large numbers and it caught on in a big way to show support for our troops.

The yellow ribbon actually dates back over 400 years and holds a very important place in our hearts and in the culture of the people of Western Christendom. Yellow ribbons have been kept to remember someone missing and pray for their safe return. They were put out for the American hostages in Iran back in 1981.

Yellow ribbon’s placement at vet’s office was inappropriate

Who tied the yellow ribbons around the front entrance of Crescent Animal Medical?

Veterinarian Mark Martello was arrested on suspicion of for solicitation for sex, possession of concentrated cannabis and possession of a controlled substance!
