Did You Know?: We do not have to vote on everything

Is it really true that I am urging you not to vote? Yes, it’s partly true. Quite possibly you have an interest in several of the local races and may feel passionately about one or more races. It could be Measure A or any of the three local countywide races for office.


Coastal Voices: Correction: ‘Good news out of Sacramento’

My good friend Bob Berkowitz must have gotten a dose of bad data in his “Did You Know?” column (“Good news, bad news out of Sacramento,” May 20).

Dale Trigg has enough experience to be DA

Now let’s get the record straight. Dale Trigg has served 15 years as a prosecutor and defender, and because of his vast knowledge and experience with both criminal and civil law he was appointed temporary judge.


Coastal Voices: No loss of services under Critical Access

On behalf of my fellow Board members and our Medical Executive Committee of the medical staff of Sutter Coast Hospital, I would like to share what differences you can expect to see as a patient or consumer of health services if Sutter Coast Hospital is granted approval to become a Critical Access Hospital (CAH).

Apperson is dedicated to making county safer

Being a police officer means that when everyone is running away or are scared to take action law enforcement goes in, protects, helps and saves. Officers have high rates of divorce and health issues, and many don’t survive more than four years after retirement if they are fortunate enough to make it that long. They sacrifice so much including, but not limited to, precious time with family and friends, which leaves almost no personal time. 


Pages of History: Del Norte fisheries scuttled

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, May 1952:

The Bureau of Reclamation was accused of deliberately scuttling Del Norte’s fishing economy to irrigate the Sacramento Valley with Trinity River waters. Warren Hornsby, chairman of the supervisor’s study committee on the Trinity River diversion plan, pointed out that fisheries, both sport and commercial, are one of Del Norte County’s two major resources. 


Coastal Voices: Is bringing bigger trucks on highway worth risk?

Looking at the beautiful computer-generated picture of the proposed new Middle Fork Smith River Bridge on Highway 199 on the front page of the May 7 edition of the Triplicate, one might wonder why anyone would be opposed to the creation of such an impressive structure. What is not shown or told, which misleads the public on the real impact of this Caltrans project, are the 16,000 cubic yards of earth that are to be removed to widen a curve, exposing a huge cut creating soil erosion into our pristine Smith River. The current bridge has not been condemned from old age. The new bridge is primarily proposed to allow the largest STAA trucks to travel this narrow winding highway, creating increasingly unsafe industrial driving conditions for the common motorist on our Smith River scenic roadway.

Measure A: Chance to turn around economy

I’m saddened to see the current economic situation of Del Norte.

Moore seems to be taking both sides on downsizing

“Clarifications about Sutter Coast issues” published on April 14 by Del Norte Healthcare District Board Director Clark Moore appear to fail to do that for they only lead into a blind alley since the resolution he quoted (Feb. 25, 2014) is apparently non-existent. My inquiry of the district (of which he is director) indicates that no such resolution was passed on Feb. 25.


Did you know: Good news, bad news out of Sacramento

Under the heading “good news and bad news” comes this: the good news is that according to California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office, the state will end this budget year with a surplus of $5.6 billion. That’s $4.5 billion more than was anticipated.
