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.

Pages of History: Jubilation at news that war is over

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

News of the Japanese surrender last Tuesday, Aug. 7, touched off an enthusiastic celebration in Crescent City with spontaneous parades and noisemaking continuing until the early hours of Wednesday morning. When Pres. Truman electrified the nation with word that the war was over, it was the signal that set off automobile horns, sirens, whooping, hollering and singing that was kept up for hours. A grand jubilee was staged at Memorial Hall under sponsorship of the local VFW post. 

Coastal Voices: Bullying Grand Jury overstepped its bounds to defame me

My life since the release of the Grand Jury report has been greatly impacted as a lifelong member of this community. 

To be publicly called a liar and unethical in a very public forum is embarrassing and hurtful, and I believe that this was the intent of the Grand Jury Foreman, Tod Roy.
