Letters to the Editor June 17, 2014

An alternative to failed leaders, political families 

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are supposed to be the frontrunners for 2016? Are you kidding me?

No sympathy for Jefferson leader

Mr. Baird has misplaced his sympathy. His sympathy should be for citizens of the poorer counties who want to unite and form a poor state.

Low turnout no mandate against Jefferson state

I see in Saturday’s paper (June 7) where Keep It California campaign director Kevin Hendrick took out an ad celebrating the victory over Measure A. He cited the 59 percent who voted no on Measure A as a crushing defeat for the Jefferson state backers.

Carelessly left ember is a fire season warning for us

To the person who left a burning ember of some kind at the lower end of Blackhawk Bar: When we got there on Saturday there was a 15-foot-round hot spot of burning dirt. The wind was howling, and before our eyes we saw flames come to life.

Resighini Tribal Council opposes Senate bill

The Resighini Rancheria of Yurok Indians located at the mouth of the Klamath River, joins with other Klamath Basin Tribes who are not signatories to the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) and the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) in opposition to Senate Bill S.2016, introduced in the Senate by Oregon senators Wyden and Merkley, and California senators Feinstein and Boxer. S.2016 is a bill to extinguish priority treaty water rights of Indian tribes.

Undeterred by challenges of protesting rate increases

Seven years ago I protested the $42.5 million sewer upgrade/expansion. The questions in my mind before ever going on the City Council were:

Was the one and only bid by Wahlund fixed? Why did they start construction before doing a Prop 218 protest vote? How was a community of less than 30,000 people with about 3,800 people on sewer going to afford to pay $42.5 million? Why should the ratepayers be compelled to pay when the 11.8 percent expansion figure was pure fiction? Developers have to pay for expansion.

The elusive state of Jefferson

There is a book written by Peter Lauffer, a professor at the University of Oregon, that is a comprehensive history of the state of Jefferson starting in the late 1800s in the rural counties of Southern Oregon and Northern California.

This movement reignited just before Pearl Harbor and actually was to the point of pushing Judge John Childs of Del Norte County as its governor. Pearl Harbor occurred and the effort disappeared in the fight to save our country in a world war.

I am absolutely not voting for Doehle

Judges have more power than we will ever know. It is very important to elect a judge who can be trusted with this power and authority. I don’t know what judge I will be voting for, but I do know that I am absolutely not voting for the incumbent and temporarily appointed judge, Chris Doehle.

Dale Trigg has enough experience to be DA

Now let’s get the record straight. Dale Trigg has served 15 years as a prosecutor and defender, and because of his vast knowledge and experience with both criminal and civil law he was appointed temporary judge.

Apperson is dedicated to making county safer

Being a police officer means that when everyone is running away or are scared to take action law enforcement goes in, protects, helps and saves. Officers have high rates of divorce and health issues, and many don’t survive more than four years after retirement if they are fortunate enough to make it that long. They sacrifice so much including, but not limited to, precious time with family and friends, which leaves almost no personal time.
