Jefferson would hurt health care, education

In the Deep South, some people dress up every year to re-enact the Civil War … like this time it will turn out differently. It appears that Del Norte has joined a similar theatrical event in which some folks wish to re-enact the Wild Wild West. 

I don’t think people understand that a State of Jefferson in Del Norte County would have no health care and no education. All of the health care professionals, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, dentists and ophthalmologists would flee before the state was ever enacted. These professionals rely on state licensure and insurance to perform their jobs. In addition, they rely on a paycheck, health insurance and some form of retirement. I doubt anyone would forgo these basic accommodations in order to be paid with berries, wood or weed in the State of Jefferson.

Rep. Huffman appears unconcerned about us

On March 29 Congressman Huffman held a controlled town hall meeting. It was controlled because the congressman wanted questions only on two subjects: Social Security and Medicare; questions on other subjects were discouraged. All questions had to be submitted in writing. 

When he read my question he stated he would call me; he did three weeks later. My question had to do with not receiving replies to 13 of my letters. (On his e-mail page he states if a reply is wanted to check a box next to the request. I always check the box.) On the telephone he told me his staff is too busy to respond to correspondence.

Exercise your right to say no to rate increase

Do you want to pay for developer expansion?

California law says you don’t have to.

The City Council is pursuing another rate hike. Our right to protest this was given to us in Proposition 218. It spells out that ratepayers like us are only obligated to pay for operations and maintenance, not for developer expansion! Developers are legally obligated to pay for expansion. Not the ratepayers.

Trigg shows attention to domestic violence issues

Domestic violence is a hot topic and a substantial concern for our community today. The California Department of Justice (DOJ) reported domestic violence-related calls for assistance to law enforcement in 2012 with Del Norte County holding the highest rates of the entire state. Consider that is compared to Los Angeles County; Alameda County, where the City of Oakland resides; San Diego County; Humboldt County and rural counties similar to Del Norte County as well.

Team of candidates good for Del Norte

It takes a team to win. Though individual effort is highly appreciated and valued, it is the team concept that ultimately prevails and effectuates real change. The Del North County team I am voting for in June, the one I endorse is:

Dean Wilson for sheriff

Drossel’s experience shows he’s right for DA

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to elect Bob Drossel as our next district attorney. I have known Bob Drossel since I moved to Northern California over two years ago. We have worked on various committees together, and I fund his decision-making skills second to none. He faces the facts and uses his solid judicial background to make wise decisions; no nonsense, just solid decision-making and leadership.

Officials dropped the ball in handling of school threat

Today, I received a phone message telling me that the Del Norte County Schools were on high alert due to a threat that was left on a certain web site. When the police stated that they would have an officer at the schools, it made me feel better to know that they were concerned and protecting our kids.

Henion's experience makes him best choice

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to select Dohn Henion as a Superior Court Judge. I have known Mr. Henion since 1984 and consider him an excellent and distinguished attorney, counselor of law and advocate. From 1984–1988 I worked at the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Henion was a criminal defense attorney at the time and his work was always well thought out, hard hitting and effective. He possessed the rare ability to analyze cases thoroughly and present exceptional legal and oral advocacy.

Focusing for a change on victim Kenny Jones

During the trial, sentencing and now judge-ordered re-sentencing, everything seems to be focused on one person. The victim that was killed by the choice of Coulter Mann, to drink and drive has been lost during all of this.
