Coastal Voices: Saying no to hatred, insanity in tough times

Once again, 14 years later, as the sun rose and set upon America, we gathered collectively in an attitude of mourning, of celebration and of prayer. Like each of us, I recalled where I was when I first heard of the attack upon the towers and then the Pentagon, where I was later to learn my cousin had perished, along with 43 people from the county of my birth. 


Yes We Can: Fire response better than Biscuit’s

As I sat here in my home in Big Flat on July 31, I worried a little bit when a dry lightning storm went through our area. It brought back memories of July 13, 2002, and a similar storm.

Sutter Coast’s strategy is great threat to health, future

Thank you for reprinting Chuck Blackburn’s Coastal Voices, “Yes We Can.” Outstanding letter to the editor with which I agree with every word. 


Reporter not involved in police ‘trap’

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, September 1955.

Rumors a Triplicate reporter was employed by police to trap a local cab driver in an alleged act of pandering are denied by the Triplicate. The rumors may be confused with a former employee of the Triplicate who is now a special investigator for the Del Norte district attorney’s office.

The cab driver will be given preliminary hearing on the charge Oct. 4, before Judge Alyce Moseley in district court. He posted bail.

Holley, Gastineau demonize Gitlin for standing up to them

A well written review. McClure and Finigan should be ashamed of holding the potentially resourceful and beautiful Crescent City in hostage.

Coastal Voices: It has been a thrill to coach

I’m writing this due to my departure as the head football coach at Del Norte High School. I reluctantly resigned when my obligations as a fire captain prevented me from being all the athletes needed me to be as a head coach. Although it broke my heart, the magnitude of this fire season made it impossible for me to give the team the attention it deserves this football season.

I am so grateful for the many opportunities I had while head coach to be associated with our community. During my tenure with Del Norte Football we were able to continue the strong winning tradition, and reinforce values that were established long ago. I am very proud of the accomplishments of our teams and athletes both on the field, and in the community. I look forward to watching the program continue to grow and thrive on its foundations of dedication and honor. The time, dedication, passion, and commitment it took to grow this program is a true tribute to the athletes, coaches, teachers, families, and business that make up our great community.

Duplication vs. innovation

With the announcement that there is a new pharmacy coming to town by next year, we’ll then have at least five outlets in town filling prescriptions and providing all that free-standing and big-box pharmacies provide; four of which will be just a few blocks apart.

Will all five survive the competition or will we end up with another empty storefront? Is it better to keep duplicating what we already have vs. attracting new, innovative start-ups to fill essential and unmet needs?

Holley, Gastineau demonize Gitlin for standing up to them

I’ve been following the latest Del Norte County drama including the Solid Waste Board lynching of Supervisor Roger Gitlin after the Grand Jury report was released. 

I was trying to get a handle on Elizabeth Henry, who led her horde into the Flynn Center to lobby for Gitlin’s lynching. What a bunch of kooks.

The chairman of solid waste, Rick Holley was pathetic. He claims he was intimidated by Gitlin’s email which asked to delay any discussion about him until he returned from his vacation. Holley refused. Gitlin let him have it in an honest, healthy manner, which Holley considered intimidating. Scary. 


Pages of History: Wakefield back in U.S.

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, September 1945:

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wakefield of Third and G streets, Crescent City, were made very happy on Thursday when they received a telegram from their son, Robert Wakefield, U.S. Army, announcing he had arrived in Boston and he will be sent to Camp Beale, California within the next week. From there he is to receive a 30-day furlough and plans to come to Crescent City immediately thereafter to visit with his parents. Robert has served for two years with the armed forces in Africa and Italy.

Deer hunters warned

Mr. and Mrs. Warren G. Hunter, who bought the old Hobbs, Wall Company’s old logged over holdings in the Mill Creek area and are now living there, are notifying hunters and others that there will be no trespassing on the property. The area is a favorite deer hunting grounds for local nimrods, but the Hunters have stocked the range and do not wish to risk the hazard of promiscuous shooting for their own safety as well as that of their livestock.
