Rural Human Services staffers saved veteran

To the director of Rural Human Services:

My name is Apolonio (Paul) Garcia and I wish to call to your attention one of your employees. I only know his first name: Aaron. I am a disabled Vietnam and Yom Kippur War veteran. I lost my wife of 38 years to alcohol a little over a year ago and lost my ability to handle life and went homeless.

I do not drink or take drugs. But losing Donna made me unable to cope with everyday decisions. I asked Sam — a lady who helps veterans at the VFW building — and she sent me to your building. I spoke to Robin in the computer room, who listened to me and was very kind.

This week’s ‘Little Things’ featuring spiders is a big hit

Bryant Anderson’s photographs of spiders were just beautiful, and so was the layout. In addition, he writes well. Thank you Bryant, I enjoyed the pictures and text.

“OK” an inadequate response to Finigan’s refusal to serve

OK. That’s the Triplicate’s response to David Finigan’s refusal to serve on the Solid Waste Management Board. Just OK?


Pages of History: Endert follows old dream

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October of 1965:

Chester Endert of Crescent City has followed a dream for 10 long years. The local man had sought the final resting place of the pilot wheel of the ill-fated steamship Brother Jonathan, which wrecked on Point Saint George Reef 100 years ago.

Someone had told Endert that the wheel was in Portland in an eating establishment.

In the Oregon city, Endert traced the wheel to the “Oyster Bar,” a famous restaurant which is located near the waterfront.

Great coverage of the area’s wildlife

It is great to see our outdoors and wildlife being represented in the paper. Your staff articles on the little things (Bryant Anderson) and various hike/bike adventures (Adam Spencer) are really good, but the interesting writing that Lucas Brug contributes seasonally on the birds of Del Norte really stands out. As a marine scientist and amateur birder, I find his representation of the incredible bird world of this area is spot-on accurate. He also conveys the peculiar obsession of birding in an enchanting light. Get out there and enjoy the way of the wilds around us.

DNSWMA needs to be reigned in

I see by the article in the Triplicate that the county Board of Supervisors finally took steps to skewer the spokes of the wheels of Mr. (Tedd) Ward’s empire locally known as Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority. It’s about time.

One would think after the uproar over the Grand Jury’s fantasy findings for all to see that our new editor, with investigative experience, would rise to the occasion and become the public’s fourth estate to check into what is clearly a problem.

The editor may wish to start with why a small unelected group purporting to be the voice of the community in conjunction with Mr. Ward spent 2014 attending the DNSWMA meetings complaining about staff shortages. This activity contributed greatly to the animosity that developed between some of the commissioners and the administrative staff.


Time to step up or step down

This really isn’t that hard to fix.

We’re talking about the latest trumped up stalemate the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors are wringing their hands over — who among them should take one of two seats the county has on the Solid Waste Management Authority.

One seat is occupied now by Supervisor Martha McClure. She accepted it as one of the responsibilities granted her by the voters when she sought county office and all its generous benefits.

Businesses make parade a success

On behalf of Del Norte High School leadership class, we would like to thank the following businesses for supporting and contributing to the Del Norte High School’s Football Homecoming parade: Alexandre Dairy, California Auto image, Coast Auto, Crescent City Fire Department, Crescent Hay and Feed, and Schnacker Hauling.

Without your involvement we would be unable to have a parade. We would also like to thank the community members that came out to cheer their Warriors on to victory. We are so grateful when the community comes together to make homecoming special. We appreciate all you do for Del Norte High School.


No evidence of teen dope peddling

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1955:

Chief of Police William Burke and Del Norte Sheriff Harold Scott today put an end to wild rumors that dope peddling was active among local teenagers. After months of expensive investigation not a single bit of evidence was uncovered to support the rumors. Officers did find a few cases of vodka drinking among teenagers and the use of a mild patent medicine that had a “kick,” but nothing more.
