Move forward with our health care, not backward

Let’s go forward, not backward. Located at the intersection of Highway 199 and 101, Crescent City is a natural service center for the people of northwestern California and southwestern Oregon. But the lack of one service literally drives these same people away. We waste time and gasoline to get to Eureka, Grants Pass or Medford for medical services that could be provided here.

Associate justice races give voters little choice

Welcome to the old Soviet Union.  For those of you who are too young to recall what I am writing about, elections in the Soviet Union had over a 90 percent voter turnout. And no one on the ballot ever lost. Of course, voters only had one slate of candidates to choose from. Either you voted “yes” for the candidate or “no” for the candidate. There was no other choice.  


Pages of History: Highway routes discussed

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

Tentative 199 route selected

More than 100 persons gathered in the supervisors’ chambers Monday night to hear District Engineer Sam Helwer and Senator Randolph Collier explain the proposed re-routing of Highway 199 near the California border.Even completion of the entire project, which appeared to be approximately five years away, and the cost, $30 million, didn’t appear to throw any gloom over the meeting.

Apperson values family, understands community

Del Norte County is my home, and I want what’s best for me and my family. As a grandmother, it is important to know that my family is safe. I need to be able to rely on the Sheriff’s Office to keep my family and our community safe.

Local dairy farm family supports Measure F

The Alexandre family is supporting Measure F to keep our customs, culture and traditions alive for future generations. There are many reasons for our choice, but the most important to us is the hundreds of children, from grade school to high school, who participate in the 4-H, Grange and FFA auctions every year to show and sell their animals.  


Pages of History: Chaotic opening of one-ways

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1958. 

New couplet open to traffic

Crescent City’s new one-way couplet and one-way streets officially opened Tuesday morning to the squeal of brakes, the blare of horns and the low moans of city police who found that educating the public to one-way traffic wasn’t the easiest job in the world.

Hospital’s plan for ‘Critical Access’ shows wrong priority

As a retired employee of Sutter Coast Hospital (SCH), I would like to share my thoughts about the possibility, or probability, of Sutter Coast Hospital becoming a Critical Access Hospital.

Former Mariposa sheriff backs incumbent in Del Norte race

I have known Sheriff Wilson on a professional basis since 2003. I know him to be very knowledgeable, personable, punctual and have excellent moral values. I have sat in meetings with him on very critical issues facing rural sheriffs in the state of California. Dean was always outspoken in these meetings, always with his residents and visitors’ safety as the priority.


Letters to the Editor Oct. 18, 2014

To answer Donna Mallatt’s wondering (“Measure F is in ‘special interest’ of entire community,” Oct. 9) which special interest groups I was talking about in my Oct. 4 letter, and she gave a very long list: all of them.
