Valued pelican statue stolen from driveway

For 25 years a concrete statue of a pelican stood in my driveway in front of my garage. It was a gift from my late husband and had great sentimental value to me.

Clarke Moore taking both sides of issue

Will the real Clarke Moore please stand up?

I was intrigued by an ad in the Feb 6 Triplicate submitted by the Del Norte County Healthcare District in which it is stated that the board voted unanimously in its Jan. 28 meeting that Sutter Coast Hospital should remain a locally owned acute care hospital.

Execs paid millions as Sutter claims hardship

I would like to add my name to the thousands of local residents who are opposing the recent decision by Sutter Health and the Sutter Coast Hospital Board of Directors to downsize the hospital in order to qualify for higher Medicare payments under the federal Critical Access program. If Sutter Coast is permitted to downsize, there will only be 25 acute care hospital beds for the communities of Crescent City and Brookings.

Government must analyze state of Jefferson proposal

I am writing in response to Sue Sullivan’s letter (“Jefferson backers should provide needed info,” Feb. 13) in which she calls for “an independent fiscal analysis being provided by the group that supports the state of Jefferson.”

Would Ms. Sullivan actually accept such an analysis by the Jefferson proponents as “independent”? Of course not.

Thanks to police officer who made week better

The other night at about 9 p.m., I went to McDonald’s on my bike. I ordered five burgers and five fries and on the way home my bag broke. I had five burgers and one order of fries scattered on the ground.

Nothing wrong with public display of love

This morning I was feeling about as happy as I could be, mostly because I share a wonderful, loving relationship with my partner. We stood next to each other — in public — and I kissed her cheek several times as we stood close to each other, embracing.

I was a bit shocked when someone marched over and informed us of his view that this was inappropriate. He said that he “might have to ask us to leave.” I reacted badly, I’m afraid. Something hit me and I became angered, and for that I am embarrassed. But for nothing else will I ever apologize.

It wasn’t aggravation about yet another absurd rule or law — there are plenty of those and I’m almost used to them. Or that someone can be so twisted to deem PDA (public display of affection) as some kind of disorder in a disorder-crazed society.

In that moment I reflected on the whole of human suffering, all of the really serious problems in our world like poverty, hunger, homelessness, teenagers shipped off to fight endless, undeclared wars that kill tens of millions of people around the world, disease and prisons for profit, drug addiction, ubiquitous direct and indirect slavery and oppression, violence and depravity in our neighborhoods, all of it.

Solid Waste Authority doesn’t need to be fixed

After reading Adam Spencer’s article in the Feb. 1 Triplicate, “Solid waste views heard,” concerning the solid waste issue, I decided to include my views on the matter.

First of all, I decided to read the article keeping an open mind and looking for reasons to privatize the Del Norte Solid Waste Agency. I can honestly say that I could not find one.

As it has been said many times before, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Carl Addington,

Crescent City

Counting Jefferson supporters in DN 

Last night a woman made the comment at the town hall that the signatures obtained in favor of the Declaration for the State of Jefferson represent only 3 percent of the county’s population.

According to the U.S. Census for the year 2012 a total 28,290 individuals resided in Del Norte County (www.quickfacts.census.gov).

It's my duty to ensure informed decisions

The Del Norte County Board of Supervisors is elected by its constituents to pass and repeal local laws called ordinances. The Board is also tasked with a myriad of responsibilities including levying taxes, collecting taxes, and adopting a fiscally sound budget.

One of the most important roles the Board plays is as a facilitator of discussion and open dialogue relating to issues pertinent to the community it serves. The responsibility to ensure decisions are made with the best available information and with respectful dialogue cannot be overstated.

Finigan obstructing effort to join Jefferson

Why is Supervisor David Finigan ignoring the will of the residents of Del Norte County and his own fellow supervisors? Why is Supervisor Finigan erecting barriers along the road to the state of Jefferson?
