Bias evident in report from the Grand Jury

I just read the 2014–15 Del Norte County Grand Jury Report, and I am more than a little perplexed. Commenting on the Solid Waste Authority missing funds, the Grand Jury could not find evidence of the exact quantity of money that was missing, yet they had full access to the Scanlon Report, which showed that the amount was exactly $25,732.15. What prevented the Grand Jury from accepting the Scanlon Report as accurate?

Not everybody wants to
get out of this town, Oprah

I take offense at the idea that Ms. Oprah Winfrey may have made the statement, “Get me out of this dirty town.” I also take offense at Mr. Gitlin giving it credence by repeating it (“Coastal Voices: Volunteers ‘Take a Bite out of Blight,’” June 6). Not everyone can afford to live in Montecito nor any of the other locations where she owns property.

City needs to ban candy throwing from parade

Clearing the air on anti-cannabis screed 

“As far as Jane Christmas knows” should definitely be used to preface the claims in her anti-cannabis screed (“To county: Consider pot’s harm before legalization,” May 26). While smoking anything can be detrimental to the lungs and could cause respiratory problems, cannabis, unlike nicotine, has actually been demonstrated not to be implicated in either lung or colorectal cancers.

More about True North meeting in Klamath

I am very grateful that the Triplicate shared an informative piece (“Klamath parents ask school dist. to address needs,” May 26) on the True North action of May 20 in Klamath. As a parent and a True North leader, I would like to add some major pieces of the event that are very important to highlight that were not mentioned in the article.

We need more of the right type of farms

I’d like to comment on Joan Miles’ May 12 Senior Sleuth column (“Howard: Preserving a way of life for future”) in which County Supervisor Chris Howard said, “We need more farms in Del Norte.” For sure! But what type of farm is equally important.

To county: Consider pot’s harm before legalization

An open letter to the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors: 

Before considering legalization of recreational smoked marijuana, this might be a good time to think a little harder about the long-term consequences.

Mom, family of Dante thank those helping to bring justice

On Sunday, May 3, I made a decision no mother should ever have to make — to turn off the life support system of her child.

Nonbelievers shouldn’t get worked up about use of ‘God’

Diana Clark’s letter (“Newsflash: No religious test to be citizen of U.S.,” May 14) brings to my mind the seemingly innumerable hours people have spent arguing over what should and should not be posted on public buildings. Most of the time this involves the use of the word “God” or the Ten Commandments being posted on courtroom walls.

Separation of church, state not in Constitution

In response to Diana Clark’s letter in the May 14 Triplicate (“Newsflash: No religious test to be citizen of U.S.”), of course there is no religious test to be a U.S. citizen, nor, as far as I know, has anybody suggested there is or should be.
