Bess Maxwell classroom thanks Crescent Elk Band for performing
We of Room 3 at Bess Maxwell School would like to express our appreciation to Amy Ross and the Crescent Elk Band.
They came to Bess Maxwell school Tuesday and performed for our school. We thought they played an excellent concert for us. We are all excited to grow up and play in a band now.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. We especially appreciated your dedication to the students, Mrs. Ross.

Bradshaw and Hendrickson sentences don’t seem just
Yes, I have another question. Why did Samuel Hendrickson get 68 days in jail for the death of his mom (The Daily Triplicate, May 21)?
I got three years’ informal probation for two back-to-back domestic violences back in 2009, and I had to take the anger management classes. This is not fair.
I’m still on probation, and I graduated the classes. This guy gets 68 days for the death of his mom.
And what about George Bradshaw (“No retrial in Bradshaw case,” April 18)? That guy got cut loose, too. This is the most asinine thing that I’ve ever heard. These types of people need to pay for what they did.
We need a representative truly concerned about our questions
On Friday, May 20, Congressman Mike Thompson visited Crescent City, meeting with the harbor officials, local leaders and holding a “spaghetti feed” for only those who knew he would be here; i.e., local Democrats.
I have asked him four or five times to hold more frequent town hall meetings and other people have requested him to come here also, but have been told by his Eureka staff that he cannot come here all the time, yet last year he came here for a one-hour town hall meeting squeezed in between other meetings and he was able to come here another time at the request of the middle school to thank him for his help in acquiring some equipment.
Please be on the lookout for stolen wind turbine equipment
Our family lived in Crescent City for about 10 years. During that time we were blessed with knowing a great amount of caring and loving people. We often refer to Crescent City as the city with a big heart.
Due to extreme personal tragedy my husband and I decided to say goodbye and try living without so many sad memories.
We put our wind-powered house up for sale and left to experience new places.
Hendrickson deal is lunacy; can’t wait to see his next episode
The plea deal of 19-year-old Samuel C. Hendrickson (“68 days for death of his mother,” May 21) is the stuff of legal lunacy.
I can’t wait for his next episode. I’ll bet it’s a real doozy.
Memorial Day a time to honor veterans and their families
Memorial Day this year is on Monday. Memorial Day is a day to pay our respect to those who lie where honor rests in our state and national cemeteries and in myriad other places across the world in both marked and unmarked graves.
It is a day to honor the living symbols of the American spirit: our veterans and their families, members of our armed services and their families, wherever they are and however they serve.
It is also a day to pause for a moment of silence during the “National Moment of Remembrance” at 3 p.m. local time, wherever we happen to be. The three o’clock hour was chosen because it is a time on this very important national holiday when most Americans are out and about enjoying the freedoms paid for by the current and former members of our armed forces.
California is home to the largest population of military, veterans and dependents in the United States, totaling more than 3 million people. An additional 30,000 veterans of the U.S. military return yearly to make California their home.
Recent Fawn Morris accolades bring to mind another memory
Seeing the recent accolades for Fawn Morris (“Fawn Morris will be remembered for efforts in behalf of county fair,” May 11) gave me incentive to write this remembrance of her also.
In high school she was very skillful at “jitterbugging.” The dance floor would clear to watch her and her brother “Juke” dance to the music of the Big Band sounds that came from our rented jukebox.

County seems to have record of going soft on men who kill women
Kill your mother in Del Norte County and you only spend 68 days in jail! This is outrageous.
Del Norte County seems to have a record of going soft on men who kill women in our county. Kill your friend and throw her off a bridge: 11 years.
Women in this county should be concerned.
Cartoon ridicules those bringing attention to illegal immigration
I wish to also register my objection to a political cartoon published in May 12 Daily Triplicate last regarding illegal immigration.
Dale Bohling wrote a letter (“Cartoon introduces racism into heretofore peaceful community,” May 19) similarly expressing his concern The Triplicate would irresponsibly run a political cartoon mocking Tea Party patriots’ concern that illegal immigration laws in this country and California are summarily being ignored.
The picture of the hard-working migrant filling a wheel barrel infers there is no cost to the taxpayer. Assuming this particular migrant is a law- abiding person (other than his breaking America’s border law) is unrealistic since the crime rate is so disproportionately high among this population of immigrants.
My concern is this political cartoon ridicules and marginalizes those that bring to the attention of our federal government the devastating effects of illegal immigration. I consider the members of the Tea Party and Minutemen to be patriots who endure this ridicule.
And for those of you who are still undecided about the effects of illegal immigration burdens on our state, look at the facts: Illegal immigration costs California billions of dollars a year. Eliminating that cost would ameliorate the chasm of deficit California presently suffers from.
Defend that practice as Gov. Jerry Brown and the Assembly/Senate ask you to pay more taxes on income, sales and DMV fees to support this madness. Say no thank-you.
Can’t pity those on system when I work and have costly insurance
Regarding the May 17 letter “Unfair to say that people who live on system are lazy, criminals,” are you kidding me! Unless a person is born with a silver spoon in their mouth they have to find their way in this world!
California affords the most disadvantaged all that the country has to offer! The federal government pushed to get everyone educated!
I didn’t grow up with a great support system in my family but I married a wonderful husband that is one of the smartest people I will ever know. If you want to lean how to beat depression, pull some weeds! There is nothing better to deal with ADHD than turning off the TV and if your child is inappropriate in words or actions than start gardening or go for a hike.
