From the pages the Del Norte Triplicate, April 1952.

Let's accentuate the positive of our town

I’m a newcomer to Crescent City of only 12 years, and I must wholeheartedly agree with fellow transplant Lihi Halperin (“Look to future, not a catastrophic past,” Coastal Voices, March 29) that to rename Front Street “Tsunami Way” was the dumbest idea I have heard of in many years.


Coastal Voices: Healthcare District working to prevent hospital takeover

As a lifelong resident of Del Norte County, local healthcare provider, and chair of the Del Norte Healthcare District Board, I write to inform readers on the history of Sutter Health in our region, and how your Healthcare District Board is working to preserve and expand your access to affordable health care.


Coastal Voices: Look to future, not a catastrophic past

“Want to vacation in the tsunami capital of the U.S.?”

That’s an unlikely sentence to read, isn’t it? Can you imagine anyone saying it out loud and actually getting a positive response? Who are we appealing to?

Reason to raise sewer rates doesn’t add up

I can’t believe that our local officials are looking at raising our sewer rates again (“City eyes sewer rate hike,” March 20). The water rates were just raised and our household of three is paying between $85 and $90 per month to receive these services.


Redwood Rockettes always put on a show

When Warrior fans attend a Del Norte High football or basketball game, we can look forward to an exciting performance by the Redwood Rockettes.


Church Notebook: Good Friday, Easter, Passover next month

I don’t know what’s mixed with our recent rains, but I don’t think it’s just water.

Usually a good rain does a great wash job on my truck (it’s white), but lately whatever the stuff is, it’s sticking pretty good. Perhaps it’s pollen, though it’s brown rather than yellow.


A look back at a look back at the destructive tsunami

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1984.

The following was written by Karl Cates of the Triplicate on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the 1964 tsunami:

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.


Coastal Voices: Is there really no law north of the Klamath?

It was an overcast, windy afternoon outside Newark, N.J. The forecast storm overhead was replaced by the one that always attended the phrase, “Wait until your father gets home.”

On this occasion, I had back-talked a teacher in my eighth-grade math class. I was grounded for a month and ordered to personally apologize to Mr. Ortiz.
