Duplication vs. innovation

With the announcement that there is a new pharmacy coming to town by next year, we’ll then have at least five outlets in town filling prescriptions and providing all that free-standing and big-box pharmacies provide; four of which will be just a few blocks apart.

Will all five survive the competition or will we end up with another empty storefront? Is it better to keep duplicating what we already have vs. attracting new, innovative start-ups to fill essential and unmet needs?

Holley, Gastineau demonize Gitlin for standing up to them

I’ve been following the latest Del Norte County drama including the Solid Waste Board lynching of Supervisor Roger Gitlin after the Grand Jury report was released. 

I was trying to get a handle on Elizabeth Henry, who led her horde into the Flynn Center to lobby for Gitlin’s lynching. What a bunch of kooks.

The chairman of solid waste, Rick Holley was pathetic. He claims he was intimidated by Gitlin’s email which asked to delay any discussion about him until he returned from his vacation. Holley refused. Gitlin let him have it in an honest, healthy manner, which Holley considered intimidating. Scary.

Rock Creek residents are thankful for support

The People who live in Rock Creek on the South Fork of the Smith River would like to say thank you to hundreds of people.

To: The fire fighting team for keeping the heat on the other side of the river. When the fire kept coming closer the fire fighting team kept their ground allowing the residence of Rock Creek to keep their homes. A special thanks to the aviation team. Watching their large four-engine aircraft swoop down in this narrow canyon was impressive. And to the helicopter pilots who flew through the smoke and flames to drop the water on target.

To: The Del Norte County Search and Rescue for making a house to house visit and explaining to us we needed to get ready to move on short notice.

Great coverage for local triathlon

Commendations to Michael Zogg for his awesome articles on local sports events.

Recently he has written at least three thorough articles on triathlons. In all three cases, our little Crescent City Triathlon group has given him some details and websites and he has done an outstanding job of researching the races. He pulls up pertinent facts and adds the local athletes’ anecdotes, turning it into a cohesive and flowing article. His turn of phrase is excellent.

Seemless Summer Food Program a big success

I am writing to thank all the individuals and organizations who worked together to provide meals to children and youth in our community this summer.

This spring, the Community Food Council for Del Norte County and the Adjacent Tribal Lands teamed up with the Del Norte Schools Nutrition Services Department to expand the Seamless Summer Food Program — and it worked. Over 15,000 free meals were served to children and youth throughout Del Norte County this summer, compared to just under 3,500 meals in 2014.

Convincing scam calls increasing

On Thursday, my wife received a phone call supposedly from a distant granddaughter, crying that she was in jail in Oregon and needed $3,000 to get released until her trial date. A male then came on the line, introduced himself as police Capt. John Adams, badge number 82218 and phone number 800-488-0540 and said he believed the girl was innocent and the money would be returned.

It was a scam. The phone number is fictitious, the man is a scammer. The local sheriff’s office confirmed the occurrences of this scam have increased dramatically over the last few months.

Grassroots group is looking to future

It seems like the longer people live in Del Norte County the more they seem to ponder the past. Old timers talk about the Tsunami and flood of 1964 like it was yesterday. But what about our city and county’s future? Where are we going as a city and county? The city has a plan to revitalize Beachfront Park, but it seems like it has a long way to go to become a reality, yet possibly, not so long after all, why?

Progressive governments all have a fatal flaw

Having read Mr. Stanfield’s recent letter, I think that perhaps it is he that is a bit confused about the benefits of  progressive government programs.

It is like most cheerleaders of all things progressive, he has never had the pleasure of living in a truly progressive country, like say Venezuela, or maybe Greece.

Progressive programs benefit conservatives

A recent contributor to the letter section of the Triplicate is obviously confused. The 40 percent who he claims believe in traditional values like voter control and restriction, deny global warming, denying a woman’s right to abortion, are bent on following their hero Ronald Reagan in his effort to abolish labor unions and thus the destruction of the middle class.

Rather than doing anything about minimum wage increases, your conservative base would rather support big oil and coal empires to the detriment of our environment. Wake up conservatives, this hurts you, too.

Now, for the progressive view. Why should we be the only industrial nation without national health care?

Bold overlord issues sweeping Imperial Edict

The stage has just pulled into Deadwood with a sweaty, exhausted team of horses as a bold figure steps down from the carriage and strides to the community bulletin board whereon he holds a crudely scripted notice to the citizenry as he drives in the staples with the butt of his 90 calibre hog leg.
