Grand Jury ignores theft and follows double standard

When I read the Grand Jury Report, I said to myself we will finally get to the bottom of all of the Solid Waste Authority controversy. What a disappointment!

Bias evident in report from the Grand Jury

I just read the 2014–15 Del Norte County Grand Jury Report, and I am more than a little perplexed. Commenting on the Solid Waste Authority missing funds, the Grand Jury could not find evidence of the exact quantity of money that was missing, yet they had full access to the Scanlon Report, which showed that the amount was exactly $25,732.15. What prevented the Grand Jury from accepting the Scanlon Report as accurate?

Coastal Voices: Del Norte’s people make this place great

As a newcomer to this community, I am continually impressed with its history of camaraderie and of the stalwart attitude its citizens have had in the face of disaster. Hence, I was delighted to be given an opportunity to share my musings on what makes Crescent City and Del Norte County people special because that is at the core of what makes this place exceptional.

Not everybody wants to
get out of this town, Oprah

I take offense at the idea that Ms. Oprah Winfrey may have made the statement, “Get me out of this dirty town.” I also take offense at Mr. Gitlin giving it credence by repeating it (“Coastal Voices: Volunteers ‘Take a Bite out of Blight,’” June 6). Not everyone can afford to live in Montecito nor any of the other locations where she owns property.

Coastal Voices: This is hard enough as it is

Dear family, friends, Del Norte and Curry counties,

I am writing this to you regarding the article in the Triplicate on Saturday regarding our niece Danielle (“Missing woman’s remains identified”). A family never plans for someone so young to die, let alone a death like our niece’s; we do not wish this on anyone.

Coastal Voices: Correcting the Sutter Health record, again

After watching Sutter Coast Hospital (“SCH”) CEO Mitch Hanna’s presentation to our Board of Supervisors in April, I am compelled to respond. Some of Mr. Hanna’s information was welcome news — for example, the fact that Sutter Coast was profitable in 2014. Recall the prior two Sutter Coast CEO’s painted a “gloom and doom” financial scenario, unless Sutter Coast downsized to Critical Access status (which will allow SCH to triple its Medicare charges). Take a look at the 2013 article entitled, “CEO: Sutter Coast Hospital losing money” available online at www.currypilot.com/News/Local-News/CEO-Sutter-Coast-Hospital-losing-money.

Clearing the air on anti-cannabis screed 

“As far as Jane Christmas knows” should definitely be used to preface the claims in her anti-cannabis screed (“To county: Consider pot’s harm before legalization,” May 26). While smoking anything can be detrimental to the lungs and could cause respiratory problems, cannabis, unlike nicotine, has actually been demonstrated not to be implicated in either lung or colorectal cancers.
