Coastal Voices: Where’s the next generation of golfers?

I spent this past Father’s Day at Kings Valley Golf Course with my father participating in their annual Father Son/Daughter golf tournament. It was great! Seeing all the fathers golfing with either their son or daughter was wonderful. Kings Valley Golf Course put on a great tournament. Kudos to them!

Golf has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and, honestly, I owe it more than I can ever repay.  When I graduated from Del Norte High School and went off to college, I never thought I would return to this county, but I am very happy I did.  However, I am saddened to see the game that gave me so much when I was growing up is now dying in this county.  The next generation club member, golf ball shanker, ground hacker and “hole-in-one” maker aren’t populating our local clubs, or, if they are, they are in very small numbers.

Responsibility as defined in the dictionary: A) The state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something; B) The state of being the person who caused something to occur; C) Moral accountability for one’s actions.

Coastal Voices: Don’t give up on voting

Lest we forget, I just want to voice my feelings since having read that on June 3 less than half of the voters turned out to vote. 

I’m trying to figure that out. Let’s step back into history. The colonists took whatever weapons they had, some only strong enough to voice the need for what was right and good, others more enabled. In one way or another, they fought for independence and won. We formed rules and regulations, and one by one did all that could be done to be heard and to hold dear all that caused the creation of those rules. We made a constitution, and in 1791 amendments were ratified that came to become a part of that constitution as well.

No sympathy for Jefferson leader

Mr. Baird has misplaced his sympathy. His sympathy should be for citizens of the poorer counties who want to unite and form a poor state.

Low turnout no mandate against Jefferson state

I see in Saturday’s paper (June 7) where Keep It California campaign director Kevin Hendrick took out an ad celebrating the victory over Measure A. He cited the 59 percent who voted no on Measure A as a crushing defeat for the Jefferson state backers.

Coastal Voices: Does Del Norte have an emperor?

I write this piece in response to the arrogant behavior by Board of Supervisors Chairman David Finigan. At a Board of Supervisors meeting, Chairman Finigan spoke and acted like he was the emperor of Del Norte County. I urge all residents of this County to watch the video of the Board meeting for May 27 (31:30-01:08:00).
