Sewer rate changes just another way to get more money from citizens

I see where a new water/sewer rate structure is being proposed with larger charges based upon the amount of water each household uses during each billing period. At first glance that may seem fair, at least until you realize that you are being billed extra for water that never goes down the sewer.

Water used for cooking, drinking, gardening, decorative bird baths and ponds, childrens toys, even car washing, never goes into the sewer, yet you would pay extra for that water and the sewer.

Union: DHSS staff dedicated, hard-working, compassionate

This is in response to the Dec. 7 article “Homeless’ Breakfast Club 2.5 Months Strong.”

Besides being an employee of Del Norte County Health & Human Services (DHHS), I am also president of the Miscellaneous/Professional employee’s union, DNCEA SEIU 1021. It is as union representative that I write in support of DHSS employees.

Unfortunately your article and DHHS director, Ms. Pierson, painted a negative view of DHHS workers, one that the union disagrees with.

U.S. border security has been in tatters for years

By now it is abundantly clear to me that America’s citizens must rely on their own devices for their and their family’s security.

With the southern border in tatters for over a decade while immigration officers have been doing a balancing act and local ranchers have been fighting a losing battle against the trespassing, destructive hordes, the U.S. has seemingly lost its southern demarcation. Under the Obama administration it even appears to have been carpeted in preparation for the gun show their ATF put on.

The Cartels have moved much of their operation closer to their clientele while the open door beckons to the erstwhile maniac with a penchant for the blood of unarmed Americans of all ages . The slaughter of innocent party goers in San Bernardino by two well armed jihadis has a number of lessons for those of us who will learn from it.

Two Boys Scouts helped me when I was in need

I would like to send a personal thank you to two boy scouts who were at the craft fair Dec. 5, selling mistletoe to raise money to help others. I am sorry I do not know their names.

While being a volunteer gift wrapper in a side section of the craft fair, I underwent an emergency situation, that could well have turned into a 9-1-1 call.

Actual wording of Constitution

I want to thank Evelyn Cook for her comments on Christmas in last Saturday’s paper (Christmas under fire, follow Jesus’ teachings).

It amazes me what people really think the Constitution says. “Separation of Church and State” is a statement in writings among several constitutional authors.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Fight continues against Sutter Coast’s greed

First, I would like to thank the Triplicate for assigning reporter David Anderson to cover the Healthcare District Board meetings. There are many in the community who believe that the fight against Sutter Health is lost. Be assured that four of your Healthcare District board members are working diligently to take action that will bring a full service hospital back to our community.

As reported in the Triplicate, board member Clarke Moore has managed to obstruct the board from moving forward.

Dr. Cutter’s great care will be missed

Once again, Sutter Health downsizing in order to show a bigger profit image, has cost the patients of this small community in Del Norte County.

Letter policy too restrictive for our vocal community

I would like to add my voice to those of my neighbors and fellow readers of the Triplicate who are not happy with the new word limit and frequency of letters policy instituted by Editor Robin Fornoff.

Hussey saw local need, Sutter only sees profits

While I’m hopeful that mediation will produce a just settlement in the lawsuit brought against Sutter by Beverly Hussey, I’m not optimistic. Sutter’s intransigence to date and the complete lack of transparency at high levels in the organization are not encouraging signs.

One letter per month eliminates chance for debate, discussion

This letter is addressed to “Editor” but more properly should be addressed to the readers ofthe Triplicate because I want to talk about the editor to the readers.

The current editor, Robin Fornoff, has made some changes to the rules governing the Opinion page. One change is to limit letters to 300 words. Another change is to limit letters from any individual to one letter per month.

Some of us readers think these rules are too restrictive. One of the most vocal being Dale Bohling. And, I agree with Mr. Bohling.
