Watch groups, not sheriff, responsible for crime drop

I’m Mike Marler founder of the Bertsch Tract Neighborhood Watch.

I noticed Sheriff Dean Wilson’s ad taking credit for the crime rate going down since he has been in office. I just want to point out that several Neighborhood Watch groups started up since he has been in office, and I would like to give them the credit for the crime rate dropping, not Dean Wilson.

Questions about Sutter's finances still unanswered

Recently I had a procedure done at the short stay section of Sutter Coast Hospital, and it was a wonderful experience. Then I attended a meeting at the Flynn Center where nearly 90 people were there to discuss the hospital, but no answers were given to the questions asked.

There have been recent articles in the Triplicate, but again, questions about Sutter Health’s real financial status and other questions have not been answered. How about a short history of our hospital? Who owns it? What has changed? Didn’t we have a local person donate the property on which it was built? Wasn’t that a wonderful thing?

Trigg has shown he can be a good DA

I have had the opportunity to work in law enforcement in Del Norte County for coming up on 14 years. In that time I have seen a lot going on in our courtrooms and behind the scenes of the justice system.

Let's accentuate the positive of our town

I’m a newcomer to Crescent City of only 12 years, and I must wholeheartedly agree with fellow transplant Lihi Halperin (“Look to future, not a catastrophic past,” Coastal Voices, March 29) that to rename Front Street “Tsunami Way” was the dumbest idea I have heard of in many years.

Reason to raise sewer rates doesn’t add up

I can’t believe that our local officials are looking at raising our sewer rates again (“City eyes sewer rate hike,” March 20). The water rates were just raised and our household of three is paying between $85 and $90 per month to receive these services.

Jefferson could better support psychiatric care

California has been closing psychiatric hospitals and reducing the number of beds for patients requiring acute inpatient care over the past 15 years.

Mann, DNUSD cronies setting a sorry example

Thank you Juanita Henson for taking the right and brave step in voicing publicly what has needed to be said for too long (“Mann case a great miscarriage of justice,” March 18). Indeed, what kind “justice” is our court meting out when death is considered an injury?

Cost of referendum should be on backers

I’m proud to be a Californian! Ours is the state that has led the way for much of the progress in the country. As California goes, so goes the country! 

Paying taxes certainly is a duty to which none of us look forward to. However, every day, at home or anywhere we go, we see what our state taxes provide that we as individuals we could not afford: schools, parks, roads, enforcement of the laws requiring standards for building, vehicle operation, professional services, etc. We often find meeting the requirements upsetting and annoying when we must comply, but are appreciative of those that others must follow.

How School Board treated children was disgraceful

I feel compelled to write this letter after the School Board meeting last night, when KRECR’s school meal request was on the agenda. My daughters feel strongly about this issue. I was filled with pride, as my daughters wanted to stand up for those in need, to be the voice for those who cannot/will not speak up.

My third-grader had a speech with her friend. My first-grader wanted to plead for the poor, hungry kids she sees at school every day. This was their request. We did not parade little kids in front of the board to manipulate them. The way the children were treated makes me believe the Board resented their input.

Mann case a great miscarriage of justice

Being a Del Norte county resident for 30 plus years, I for the first time am ashamed to let anyone know where I live. I usually brag about what a beautiful place this is, having the beautiful redwoods, rivers full of fish and nice clean air to breathe. But we have to put up with one of the most foul-smelling judicial systems I have ever seen, or heard of.
