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!

Wisdom of decision to nix incinerator is borne out in Pennsylvania

Here is a confidence booster for Del Norte County residents. Remember Barlow Projects, the company that came to Crescent City in 2003 to pitch its idea of building a waste-to-energy trash incinerator here?

Community outcry against environmental hazards of the project, and the poor track record of the company in other cities, led to the failure of its proposal.

Hope that truck thief will experience character change

As some of you may already know, my truck was stolen Tuesday in broad daylight (around 9:45 a.m.) from a store parking lot. If you are wondering, there were no keys left in it and the doors were locked.

First, I want to thank everyone, including law enforcement, who stopped what they were doing to help look for my truck. Unfortunately, so far it has not been located.

Secondly, I want to talk about karma. Some people would call it “Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you.” I like to think of it in more scientific terminology.

Hearsay, not facts, in article about collective owner arrest

Where does the Triplicate get its “facts?” I read your article on my brother, “Raid on Collective” (April 14) and wondered where you get your information. Half of the article seems to be hearsay.

My brother bought an 8-year-old truck, and yes, he paid cash. I also bought a used vehicle from a private party and paid in cash. How else would you pay for a used vehicle from a private party?

Also, he has been paying on his house for years. He did not have 30 pounds of marijuana, as you reported.

Upcoming presidential election will the decide fate of this nation

The following is how one of the founders of this nation, Thomas Jefferson, viewed the country and our Constitution:

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”

President Obama and other socialists tend to mimic the socialist mantra that, from each according to his ability and to each according to his need.

Coach, PE teacher Eric Epperson will be missed greatly at Crescent Elk School

I am writing this letter about Coach Eric Epperson, who passed away suddenly last week.

Mr. Epperson was a teacher, a coach and a friend to the students at Crescent Elk Middle School. He will be missed by his students, his basketball players and all the faculty at the school.

He would have been my coach next year and I will really miss the opportunity to play for him. His legacy will live on since Coach Epperson’s initials are the same as Crescent Elk. Go CE!

Parker Thompson
