Huffman: Balanced pace to Last Chance bypass

I read with interest Supervisor Roger Gitlin’s concerns about the progress of the Last Change Grade project under consideration by Caltrans (“Coastal Voices: Last Chance moving faster than solutions,” July 9). Mr. Gitlin’s voice is welcome in the process, both in the press and in Caltrans’ public process that is running parallel to the process undertaken by the Last Chance Grade Stakeholder group. I convened this group with urgency in mind; there is little doubt that Last Chance Grade will fail, sooner or later.

Poking holes in critique of of Berkowitz' ad 

In her hole-poking Coastal Voices titled “Anti-Grand Jury ad full of holes” (July 11), Elizabeth Henry assails Bob Berkowitz’ ad as she attempts to nullify the points Mr. Berkowitz develops in his ad regarding the “Grand Jury run amok” (June 25). Owing to the 400-word limit of letters to the editor, I shall confine my response to two points that she raises.

Facts don't support jury recommendation

Lately you’ve seen evidence where the 2014–15 Grand Jury attempted to shred the reputations of elected officials and at least one civilian based on no factual evidence.

Reaction of S.C. victims' families rejects violence 

How we react to things is so important! The recent case of the slaughtered persons in South Carolina, who were attending a Bible study class, is an example. Apparently, the accused killer wanted to start a race war. Ironically, the reaction of the families of the victims (and the characteristic behavior of the victims) is one of giving and forgiveness, even for the accused killer.

Leave Prop 13 alone 

Regarding Thomas Elias’ column mentioning proposed Prop 13 repeal for business property:
According to a recent blog by David Stockman, formerly Reagan’s budget director, the real current national unemployment rate is a
jaw-dropping 42.9 percent, not the 5.5 percent figure publicly released.

A near-perfect trip and a returned purse

On June 23 my daughter forgot her purse on the rocks by the lighthouse in Crescent City. After a frantic search a few hours later,  she started making the needed calls to cancel her debit and credit cards, etc. As a family we resolved not to allow this to dampen our spirits on our family vacation.

Berkowitz’ ad is full of one-sentence falsehoods

To anyone who has been following the trials of the Solid Waste Authority for the past several years, the recent and very detailed Grand Jury report on the public agency was little more than a public release of what we have known all along. Now we have a full page ad in the Triplicate (page A3, June 25) paid for by a private citizen, Bob Berkowitz, attacking the report. The jurors did their homework, and a great deal of it, and now Bob is asking us to disagree with its finding based on single-sentence statements of his own. Let’s look at these:

Facts speak volumes in Grand Jury Report

I am writing in my promised response to anyone misquoting the amount that went missing over a period of 10 years from the Solid Waste Management Authority. According to the Grand Jury Report, the amount ranges according to who is asked. The Triplicate reported more than a year ago that the actual figure for the unaccounted money was closer to $9,000.
