’64 should be banner year for DN

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1964.

Predictions by state and regional business leaders indicate a banner business climate for Del Norte in 1964. 

We are optimistic about prospects for a significant increase in Redwood Empire tourism during 1964. Thus, Robert A. Trombetta, president of the nine-county Redwood Empire Association, greeted the new year.

Coastal Voices: It's time to bring affordability, accountability to the hospital

Many people have been asking about Sutter Health’s plans for the communities of Crescent City and Brookings now that the Sutter Coast Hospital (SCH) Board in Crescent City has voted to downsize the only hospital in our region to a Critical Access facility in order to qualify for higher Medicare payments. 

I had stopped writing newsletters after the SCH Board, acting on the advice of Sutter Health attorney and Regional Vice President Michael Duncheon, voted to censure me for allegedly breaching Sutter’s confidentiality rules. In my roles as hospital chief of staff, and a member of the hospital Board of Directors, I felt the public had a right to be aware of, and included in, important changes at our region’s only hospital — changes which will affect all of us.

Coastal Voices: Internet redundancy: Perseverance pays off

With the recent completion of the Grants Pass to Crescent City broadband redundant infrastructure project, I feel compelled to make the public aware of one of our most recent success stories.

This project is a part of the “HAS199.Com” project list (“Harbor, Airport, Sewer, Highway 199 and Internet”) and will serve our community for years to come and set the foundation for Del Norte County being the “hub” for broadband infrastructure on the North Coast.

DN fans love thier Warrior hoops

When I returned to Del Norte High School in the fall of 1980, I had almost forgotten how crazy Warrior fans were about basketball. It didn’t take long to remember.

When I went to the first basketball game during the 1980-81 season, the gym was packed with screaming Warrior fans. That first season only ended with a 6-6 record in league, but the team was very competitive in every game and we enjoyed watching Joe Gutierrez set a league scoring record.

Church Notebook: Many churches enjoy game nights

I never thought I’d say this, but I think I miss the rain!

That driving blast of water coming at me sideways that taught me when I first came here that using an umbrella was a lesson in futility. The rain isn’t really so bad, but I sure don’t like the wind.

Construction is to begin in 10 days and will take 270 days to complete.

Praise makes me feel more worthy of being vet

“Good morning Del Norte County.” Not Vietnam anymore.

As a ’Nam combat vet, I would like to thank the members of my community for training the young adults and children to respect veterans.

They say, “Thank you for serving our country, sir.” That makes me cry. Why?

California Focus: California’s silly season: Two plans going nowhere

The end of December and early January is usually a downtime in the co-dependent businesses of government and news, replete with vacation breaks for many. This can often net flaky ideas and words far more coverage than they deserve.

So it was when ex-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called state legislators a bunch of “girlie men,” early in his term, only to have those same folks later best him at every turn. And when ex-Gov. Gray Davis first suggested the same lawmakers exist to “implement my vision.”
