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.

Senior’s stolen car had helped others

Where’s my car?

A good friend of mine had his car stolen the other night. This person really loves his job, well, his clients mostly. Rain, wind, or snow he is there for them.

Mr. Van Pelt, students rescued Marine Mammal Center’s van

This letter is to sincerely thank Mr. Jeff Van Pelt, Del Norte High School, for taking the time to help the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center (NMMC) repair its only dedicated rescue truck. 

Due to hard usage and limited funding for repair or maintenance, a severe automatic transmission problem developed and then crippled our truck. Unable to afford diagnostic or repair costs to get it running, the truck sat unused in the NMMC compound for three months.

Answers needed about frequent Klamath outages

The recent power outage in Klamath was not a rare or unusual occurrence. While this outage was longer than is typical, it seems that Klamath has a power outage whenever the wind blows strongly. And since we live near the Pacific Coast, the wind often blows strongly.  

Klamath’s frequent power outages are an economic development liability and a public safety issue, particularly for the less well off who cannot afford a backup electric generator. For that reason, officials at both the county and tribal levels should make it a priority to achieve more reliable power service for Klamath.

Officers in Brown, Garner shootings were doing jobs

In light of all the publicity regarding the conduct of various police department personnel across our country, I feel I need to weigh in on the two most critical incidences, which are the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y.

Complex problem needs attention of community

Many people become homeless because of economic troubles. Life on the streets can be very difficult. 

Many people give the homeless money. Many homeless people use signs to ask for money, food, work or other help.
