Pages of History: Wild day in Crescent City!

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


Tuesday was “wild animal day” in Crescent City. A large runaway bull elk startled residents of the Bertsch tract when he appeared near LeClair Avenue Aug 24 near the dinner hour. He is believed to be the same animal that wandered down from the Bear basin area earlier this year and set up “housekeeping” in and around Hiouchi.

Don Gastineau, local fish and game warden, told the Triplicate Wednesday that ifanyone spots the elk again, “please call either the sheriff’s office or the fish and game department so we can keep track of him.”

Young fry on the Pebble Beach area were very shocked Tuesday when the rumor went up and down the coast that “Flipper” was dead.

A bottle-nosed porpoise similar to the one that stars on the popular TV series “Flipper” was discovered dead or dying in the surf off North Pebble Beach.

Progressive programs benefit conservatives

A recent contributor to the letter section of the Triplicate is obviously confused. The 40 percent who he claims believe in traditional values like voter control and restriction, deny global warming, denying a woman’s right to abortion, are bent on following their hero Ronald Reagan in his effort to abolish labor unions and thus the destruction of the middle class.

Rather than doing anything about minimum wage increases, your conservative base would rather support big oil and coal empires to the detriment of our environment. Wake up conservatives, this hurts you, too.

Now, for the progressive view. Why should we be the only industrial nation without national health care?

Bold overlord issues sweeping Imperial Edict

The stage has just pulled into Deadwood with a sweaty, exhausted team of horses as a bold figure steps down from the carriage and strides to the community bulletin board whereon he holds a crudely scripted notice to the citizenry as he drives in the staples with the butt of his 90 calibre hog leg.

Sutter too busy counting the money to practice medicine

The battle continues over affordable health care, and no place is there more at stake than Crescent City. With a service area of 42,000, average per capita income of $10,741 and 70 percent of the populace earning under $50,000, there is a huge need for a hospital that provides essential medical services at a price that people can afford.

Grand Jury reports yet another partisan attack

I was glad to read Mary Wilson’s Coastal Voices piece in the Aug. 6, 2015 Triplicate. But I am sorry that it became necessary for her to write it.


Making room for more of your views

 When it comes to local issues or politics, I prefer to be exposed to a good mix of diverse opinions. I don’t believe I’m that much different than most folks. That’s how adults make intelligent decisions about important issues.

Front Street looks like we don’t care

Could someone please tell me why Front Street does not get paved? We have a parade that goes down that road and thousands of people see what a mess it is and must just shake their heads.

Grand Jury soap opera a bad image for Del Norte

The whole world is watching, or at least it could be in this age of news going viral, as the high-drama, Grand Jury soap opera plays on and on. What’s next — a high-noon duel on Front Street to prove who has the truest truth and the most-hurt ego? This tit for tat is surely not an image that Del Norte County can be proud of. World peace starts on the homefront.

Newsroom Dispatch: Still here and loving what I do

It was a bittersweet end to last week. The Saturday paper had been “put to bed,” and I had just one task left on my to-do list. On my computer I opened the layout template for page A4. Where letters and op-eds go, the page was blank. But the text at the bottom right, with the words of the First Amendment and below that the masthead and subscription policy, is kept on the template because it never changes. Or at least, nearly never.
