Vet housing vouchers here due to McClure

I am writing in response to the homeless vet letter of May 21. The writer had borrowed a trailer to live on his property while he built his house. He was able to borrow a trailer because family knew someone with a trailer. It sounded like he disliked the trailer and didn’t understand why Martha McClure referred him to other services, rather than helping him personally since he was temporarily homeless.

Scientists lack common sense on climate change

Why do fossil fuels get all the blame for climate change? We have all this warming of the Pacific waters causing algae blooms, mass destruction of sea life such as starfish degradation and increasing domoic acid exposure to our crabs and shellfish.

Attacks against McClure just political theater

Have you ever worked for a really poor manager? On the Coastal Commission, Martha McClure’s vote to replace the chief executive officer wasn’t motivated by some underhanded deal. He was simply not a good manager. The truth is that he is still employed by the Coastal Commission,  writing grant proposals and reviewing legislation. 

Haven’t you ever gotten angry at someone and maybe cussed at them when they falsely accused you of something? It is not a crime to stand up for oneself, especially when someone is throwing out fabricated lies and innuendos directly to your face.

Chance to correct county and country during elections

Well, well, it seems Martha McClure has gotten caught with her true personality exposed. About time.

Our local politics are beginning to look as if it might be as interesting as our national politics. Certainly, our choices just as clear. Perhaps we are being offered an opportunity to correct our county as well as to correct our country. 

Clif Shepard, Hiouchi

Health professionals go above and beyond locally

Last week, we celebrated both National Nurses Week and Hospital Week – a dedicated time to recognize our devoted health care staff who provide care in so many ways. Having just joined Sutter Coast within the last month, it has been a pleasure getting to know everyone. I have been so impressed with the lengths our staff go to in order to provide quality care and that many of our team members have dedicated their careers to helping this community and have been at Sutter Coast for 10, 20 and even 35 years. I, along with our management team, would like to thank all of the health care professionals in our community that work to improve the overall health of Del Norte and Curry county families. 

Carlos Priestley, Sutter Coast Hospital Administrator

Thanks to all who supported Wonder Bus 5K fundraiser 

On Saturday, May 7, over 40 people of all ages ran or walked the Mother of All 5Ks to show their support for the Wonder Bus. It was a wonderful community event, with strollers, dogs, and even one scooter taking part. Participants were greeted at the finish line by Del Norte High School’s steel drum band, and Ron Gastineau provided live commentary.

Murray stands alone on council in support of ONR designation

Thanks go out to City Councilwoman Kathryn Murray. She is the only member of the (Crescent City) Council to stay the course regarding the city’s letter of support for ONR designation for our Smith River. She stood firm, disagreeing that such a designation could harm the local economy. This designation would eliminate the possibility of mining taking place in Oregon’s sections of the Smith River basin, thus helping to protect our drinking water supply.  

Murray is now running for County Supervisor District 1. Her opponent is Roger Gitlin. The two could not be more different.

McClure a champion for homeless vets

As a veteran, I am aware of Supervisor Martha McClure’s work to get housing for homeless veterans in Del Norte County. Martha has worked with VA officials in Curry County to secure veteran housing vouchers for our area. Martha’s work to help homeless veterans is why I am writing this letter.

 Supervisor McClure supports affordable housing for anyone in need. Housing is the long-term solution to the problem of homelessness, not just enforcement techniques and “party slogans.” The majority of experts advocate greater services for drug and alcohol addiction and the availability to mental health services to reduce homelessness and the social problems that follow.

Volunteer with Corrections to help make a difference

As a mother I cannot understand for the life of me the reasoning behind our methods of prison punishment. It seems more logical to me to correct them with instruction, guidance, direction and positive reinforcement. The methods have been proven effective it’s just plain common sense to use it.

When Sutter Coast makes a promise, ask them for facts

Last week, I read that Sutter is finally agreeing to meet with Del Norte Healthcare District, which is an improvement on Sutter’s part. But Sutter’s latest statement is just another promise. Here are the facts: Sutter is still hiding its meeting records and ignoring the records requests made by our elected officials.

Four months ago, I wrote an article entitled “Let’s Shine a Light on Sutter’s Secrets,” available at triplicate.com. In my article, I asked CEO Mitch Hanna to end their secrecy. No one from Sutter responded. In fact, this year Mr. Hanna falsely claimed that Sutter Health owns Sutter Coast. Thankfully, the Triplicate published a story showing Mr. Hann’s claim was false.
