Coastal Voices: Pedestrians, cyclists should watch for cars

Three feet for the safety of those on bicycles may be a nice idea. As a law, it’s not.

The article in Tuesday’s Triplicate also mentioned “distracted drivers” as a potential problem. Distracted drivers? What about distracted pedestrians?

McElfresh would bring real change to Del Norte courts

Darren McElfresh is a good choice to vote for in the Superior Court judge race. I have lived in Crescent City 41 years and I have yet to meet a person running for a political office that has such an interest in the betterment of our community. His support for the youth and desire to get help for children and families are inspiring.

Murray’s accusations were unsubstantiated

The recent article (“Murray calls out Gitlin,” Sept. 13) about City Council member Kathryn Murray’s charges against Roger Gitlin was disgusting on a couple of levels. She basically says Gitlin is anti-female based on what is probably a made-up alleged conversation with him and complaints by some “unnamed” women.


Vet rehab program underway

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, September 1958:

As deer hunters began making plans to go on their annual hunting trips, Louis Tosio, chairman of the Elks Lodge veterans rehabilitation committee, reminded them this week to save their hides and turn them over to the Elks Lodge. 

The hides, which may be left at Cowen’s market, Pacific Market or the Del Norte Ice and Cold Storage Plant, will be used in veterans hospitals for leather craft work as part of the California Elks Association veteran’s rehabilitation.

Coastal Voices: Deck is stacked against change on board

Two and you’re done. I have been following with great interest the ongoing dynamics on the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors. Despite the misleading editorial in the Triplicate (“Supervisor Gitlin must salvage his term on board, if he can,” Aug. 30), it appears clear the long-sleeping public has now awakened and the public is none-too-happy with the “business as usual” practices from this moribund board.

Vote for Measure F; keep the fair for the community

There are few things that bind a community together. One of these is the annual fair. I can’t imagine what Del Norte County would be like without this one event, not to mention the hundreds of other events that take place on the fairgrounds each year. That’s why I urge your support for Measure F. It’s important for all of us.

Republican candidate for California’s 2nd Assembly District

Coastal Voices: When 9/11 plus 200 equals 1: American resilience continues

It was a day that portended of purpose, blessed in a new job with an opportunity to protect children and possibly help some folks who have been battling an affliction I wrestled with over a decade ago. It began with a call to old friend Jim Rome on his CBS Sports Radio talk show, commencing with a comment on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Hands-free calling still too distracting 

Last Saturday I got a phone call from my 26-year-old who lives down in the San Joaquin Valley. 

During the first 10 minutes of our conversation I was hearing background noise that suggested to me she was driving. When I asked her about it, she confirmed that she was in fact driving but wearing an earpiece.

Pages of History: Wife, kids, money and cook gone!

The second chapter of the sad story of Joseph Febrache, 49, was being written this week. Just out of jail on an assault charge brought by his wife, he found his bank account in a sad state. Checks were bouncing right and left.

Febrache had pleaded guilty to the assault charges, he said, because it would cost a lot to hire a lawyer to fight it. “I’d never hit a woman,” he told the Triplicate yesterday.

The money on deposit in their joint account was gone. So was Mrs. Febrache and the three children. So was the money from their restaurant at the Greyhound bus depot. So was the man who had been working as their cook. 

Coastal Voices: Transitioning Town Movement comes to Del Norte

The new Transition Del Norte group seeks to lessen dependence on “the system,” build local resilience.

Understandably, it can feel pretty pointless to try to change anything in the world. The “news” can be so disheartening and discouraging. We hear about accelerating climate change, systemic corruption and income inequality, economic instability and a host of other serious challenges to humanity. Hollywood and reality TV help us imagine apocalypse and the lengths some people take as “preppers.” But imagining the transformation of our society into something better — that’s something we’re not as good at.
