Coastal Voices: New-state plan vague, dangerous to Del Norte

Given the small amount of information provided, and having had a discussion with the proponents of the state of Jefferson advisory measure for the June 3 ballot, the Executive Board of the Del Norte County Employees Association SEIU 1021, representing the miscellaneous and mid-management/professional employees of the County of Del Norte, cannot in good faith support this advisory measure.  

We have grave concerns on the impact the proposed state of Jefferson will have on the dedicated employees of the County of Del Norte as well as the negative repercussions on the general public who we serve.

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. 


Coast Guard may leave Klamath

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1958.

The future of the Klamath River’s three-man Coast Guard rescue boat crew was shaded with doubt this week as Klamath Chamber of Commerce President Pat Caldwell told members of the local chamber that for budget reasons Rear Admiral Wood had expressed the opinion that this service not be continued.

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.


Coastal Voices: Hospital ownershsip issue is still in play

As a current Del Norte Healthcare District Board member, three-term former Chief of Staff and Board member of Sutter Coast Hospital (“SCH”), and local physician for the past 29 years, I would like to clarify some information published in last week’s Del Norte Triplicate which may have left readers confused as to the ownership of SCH.

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.


Did you know? Teens need work: A new solution for old problem

For the next few minutes take a trip with me back through time itself, back before the iPhone, before the CD, the VHS recorder and even cable TV.

Artisan Cuisine runs monthly. 

A couple weeks ago I took part in a local chocolate festival. I sold molded chocolates, truffles, chocolate oranges, caramels and toffees.
