Exercise your right to say no to rate increase

Do you want to pay for developer expansion?

California law says you don’t have to.

The City Council is pursuing another rate hike. Our right to protest this was given to us in Proposition 218. It spells out that ratepayers like us are only obligated to pay for operations and maintenance, not for developer expansion! Developers are legally obligated to pay for expansion. Not the ratepayers.

Trigg shows attention to domestic violence issues

Domestic violence is a hot topic and a substantial concern for our community today. The California Department of Justice (DOJ) reported domestic violence-related calls for assistance to law enforcement in 2012 with Del Norte County holding the highest rates of the entire state. Consider that is compared to Los Angeles County; Alameda County, where the City of Oakland resides; San Diego County; Humboldt County and rural counties similar to Del Norte County as well. 

 


California Focus: Natural gas exports will raise prices, and soon

Because of hydraulic fracturing in states like North Dakota and Wyoming, Californians and other Americans have enjoyed lower natural gas prices over the last two winters than anytime in the last 15 years. That continues right up to this moment.

Team of candidates good for Del Norte

It takes a team to win. Though individual effort is highly appreciated and valued, it is the team concept that ultimately prevails and effectuates real change. The Del North County team I am voting for in June, the one I endorse is:

Dean Wilson for sheriff


Did you know? Was Measure A fix in all the time?

I have often made the mistake of making a decision after hearing only one side of an argument. When I discovered all of the facts I got a different perspective that presented the problem in a different light. Making that mistake as an individual is one thing. Making it as a member of a public body that spends taxpayer dollars is another matter.

Drossel’s experience shows he’s right for DA

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to elect Bob Drossel as our next district attorney. I have known Bob Drossel since I moved to Northern California over two years ago. We have worked on various committees together, and I fund his decision-making skills second to none. He faces the facts and uses his solid judicial background to make wise decisions; no nonsense, just solid decision-making and leadership.


Pages of History: Barbershop singing at S.R. benefit

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

A barbershoppers’ benefit for the Smith River community hall will be held next Saturday night in Smith River. Crescent City and Brookings barbershop groups will perform and will lead community singing.


Coastal Voices: Let's think big about Del Norte

I loved Richard Wiens’ final editorial (“Appreciating Del Norte a Matter of Perspective,” April 17). The whole town and the Triplicate will sorely miss him and his wife, Neighbors editor Laura Wiens.

Officials dropped the ball in handling of school threat

Today, I received a phone message telling me that the Del Norte County Schools were on high alert due to a threat that was left on a certain web site. When the police stated that they would have an officer at the schools, it made me feel better to know that they were concerned and protecting our kids.

Henion's experience makes him best choice

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to select Dohn Henion as a Superior Court Judge. I have known Mr. Henion since 1984 and consider him an excellent and distinguished attorney, counselor of law and advocate. From 1984–1988 I worked at the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Henion was a criminal defense attorney at the time and his work was always well thought out, hard hitting and effective. He possessed the rare ability to analyze cases thoroughly and present exceptional legal and oral advocacy.
