Answers needed about frequent Klamath outages

The recent power outage in Klamath was not a rare or unusual occurrence. While this outage was longer than is typical, it seems that Klamath has a power outage whenever the wind blows strongly. And since we live near the Pacific Coast, the wind often blows strongly.  

Klamath’s frequent power outages are an economic development liability and a public safety issue, particularly for the less well off who cannot afford a backup electric generator. For that reason, officials at both the county and tribal levels should make it a priority to achieve more reliable power service for Klamath.

Officers in Brown, Garner shootings were doing jobs

In light of all the publicity regarding the conduct of various police department personnel across our country, I feel I need to weigh in on the two most critical incidences, which are the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in Staten Island, N.Y.

Complex problem needs attention of community

Many people become homeless because of economic troubles. Life on the streets can be very difficult. 

Many people give the homeless money. Many homeless people use signs to ask for money, food, work or other help.

Japanese delegation loved visit to Del Norte

Dear Editor, please allow me to use your newspaper to reach the greater Crescent City and Del Norte County communities to formally express gratitude on behalf of the delegation from Rikuzentakata who visited in early January.  

Your hospitality, openness, warmth, receptiveness, and acceptance left the group moved and humbled.  To those who opened their homes, to the administration and staff of Del Norte High School, to the businesses that offered food and lodging, to the Rotary members who listened to stories, and to the many from the Yurok and Tolowa communities who accepted the students, we extend our deep and profound thanks.

Airport working hard to secure new carrier

I wanted to take the opportunity to provide an update regarding our commercial air service and to clarify details of our work in response to SkyWest Airlines’ intention to withdraw its service from Crescent City as United Express.

On Nov. 18, SkyWest Airlines notified the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) of its intention to end service at Crescent City, effective April 6. SkyWest cited the retirement of the aircraft type it presently uses for our market, the 30-seat Embraer Brasilia, as the sole reason for its decision. Crescent City is an Essential Air Service (EAS) market, which provides commercial air service to select markets under the 1978 Airline Deregulation Act.  Immediately following SkyWest’s notification, DOT issued a hold-in order to prevent SkyWest from leaving Crescent City.

Warren Tanquary’s big heart will be missed

I want to thank the Triplicate for putting Warren Tanquary’s death notice in your paper. He was a wonderful man. He had a heart. We are going to miss him a lot.

He served in the Navy. He has been sick for awhile. He is out of pain now.

Peanut-fed crows leave unwanted mess

This letter is long overdue, but we kept hoping people would stop feeding whole peanuts in the shell to crows.  

We live close to Pacific and Pebble Beach, where large flocks of crows fly in and plant those same peanuts in our yard, the flower pots and the rain gutters.

Pick your own doctor, as long as it’s Sutter’s

This letter is regarding the recent insurance offer to CalPERS members in Del Norte County. On Jan. 8, 2015, a letter was mailed to the insureds to offer them Anthem Blue Cross Del Norte Exclusive Provider Organization. Sutter Coast Hospital and Sutter Health-affiliated doctors are the only options for treatment in the EPO network.

The most glaring problem is that this EPO policy would not reach across county lines. Now add to this Sutter’s decision to downsize Sutter Coast to a Critical Access Hospital with a maximum of 25 acute care beds and a maximum average length of stay of four days. If you are the 26th person in need of hospitalization, you get shipped somewhere else!

Photographer’s column is a welcome addition

I very much enjoyed the Bryant Anderson photos “The little things in a redwood grove” (Northcoast Life, B1) in the Jan. 24 edition of the Triplicate. Both my wife and I have been fans of Anderson’s photography for years. And not just his hard news photos, but his human interest and nature photos as well.

DN emergency responders serve with professionalism 

In late December, two friends and I made the drive to Crescent City’s South Beach for a chance to surf some of the fine waves often available when conditions are too rough or stormy down in Humboldt County.

Upon arrival, the sun was out and conditions looked inviting. Wasting no time, we put on our wetsuits and hit the water. After a few waves I got out, dried off and changed into street clothes while watching my friends exchange waves. Soon after, one of my friends also paddled in.
