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.

Appalling lack of remorse, responsibility in Mann case

It was very frustrating and sad to learn that Coulter Mann refused to take responsibility for his inappropriate actions in taking a life of an innocent man. Coulter made the choice to drink alcohol and drive his vehicle under the influence, putting himself and others in danger.

The excuse he used in his defense is equally appalling. The people of Del Norte County should be outraged at the stupidity of Mann and his legal team, of which one member is his father, presenting to the jury such inaccurate and laughable fallacies.

Equally disturbing is the pointed testimony of various employees of the Del Norte County Unified School District, including the superintendent. It is OK to be friends with someone but not support such behavior.

Heroes of another kind, doing acts of kindness

We see them. When we thumb through our newspapers or turn on our televisions, we see them. Each day they sacrifice the most precious thing that any of us can ever think to give. Their lives.

Ideology, not money, reason to leave Calif.

The debate over whether Del Norte County should join in the attempt to form a new state and leave California has merit on both sides of the issue. The overwhelming reason not to leave, of course, is financial.

Keeping rein on letters on hospital a good idea

I believe that the hospital situation actually has been quite well reported, if not a little over done, letter-wise.


Letters to the Editor March 6, 2014

Publicize requirements of Critical Access

Now that Sutter Coast Hospital has proposed converting to a Critical Access facility, I understand there are rules and regulations it has to follow. I feel these requirements should be publicized so I know what to expect or not expect should I become an inpatient.
