Perez column well-thought, compassionate

Thank you, Steven Perez, for a thoughtful, reasonable and compassionate response to Supervisor Gitlin’s calculated attack on his colleague, Supervisor David Finigan (“Coastal Voices: Prayer should not be used divisively,” June 21).

Board’s prayer debacle is just a smokescreen

For those of you who have been following the great prayer debacle, let me interject my opinion on what I see as an outsider and interested citizen. 

It’s a smokescreen. Wannabe Imperial Majesty Emperor Finigan seems to be haranguing Supervisor Gitlin over the prayer idea, along with refusing Supervisor Gitlin to speak after he gets lambasted by a woman holding a Bible and blaspheming him. That little tirade alone shows that Finigan lets anything go by as long as it suits his perverse pleasure at other folks’ distress.

Uncharted Shores has taken all steps to protect children

This public statement is being issued in response to a recent article in the local Triplicate (“Ice cream vendor accused of lewd conduct,” June 17) which contained numerous factual inaccuracies regarding Uncharted Shores Academy (USA). Specifically, the article incorrectly infers that 1.) the accused is a current employee of USA, 2.) the alleged incidents occurred at USA, and 3.) Del Norte County Office of Education Superintendent Don Olson advised USA to place the employee on paid administrative leave.

Responsibility lacking in drunk driving case

Responsibility as defined in the dictionary: A) The state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something; B) The state of being the person who caused something to occur; C) Moral accountability for one’s actions. Ultimate responsibility would be acountability — the willingness to account for ones actions.

An alternative to failed leaders, political families 

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are supposed to be the frontrunners for 2016? Are you kidding me?

No sympathy for Jefferson leader

Mr. Baird has misplaced his sympathy. His sympathy should be for citizens of the poorer counties who want to unite and form a poor state.

Low turnout no mandate against Jefferson state

I see in Saturday’s paper (June 7) where Keep It California campaign director Kevin Hendrick took out an ad celebrating the victory over Measure A. He cited the 59 percent who voted no on Measure A as a crushing defeat for the Jefferson state backers.

Carelessly left ember is a fire season warning for us

To the person who left a burning ember of some kind at the lower end of Blackhawk Bar: When we got there on Saturday there was a 15-foot-round hot spot of burning dirt. The wind was howling, and before our eyes we saw flames come to life.

Resighini Tribal Council opposes Senate bill

The Resighini Rancheria of Yurok Indians located at the mouth of the Klamath River, joins with other Klamath Basin Tribes who are not signatories to the Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KHSA) and the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA) in opposition to Senate Bill S.2016, introduced in the Senate by Oregon senators Wyden and Merkley, and California senators Feinstein and Boxer. S.2016 is a bill to extinguish priority treaty water rights of Indian tribes.

Undeterred by challenges of protesting rate increases

Seven years ago I protested the $42.5 million sewer upgrade/expansion. The questions in my mind before ever going on the City Council were:

Was the one and only bid by Wahlund fixed? Why did they start construction before doing a Prop 218 protest vote? How was a community of less than 30,000 people with about 3,800 people on sewer going to afford to pay $42.5 million? Why should the ratepayers be compelled to pay when the 11.8 percent expansion figure was pure fiction? Developers have to pay for expansion.
