Bob Berkowitz should heed his firm's findings

The article in last Thursday’s paper, (“Survey: Local voters value honesty”, July 23) is ironic. Why? Because its author, former politician and current campaign consultant Bob Berkowitz recently paid for a full-page ad in this paper (June 25) that was full of untruths and distortion of facts. In addition, his July 2 Coastal Voices op-ed (“Yes we can: Ordinary citizens are making a difference in DN”) was similarly inaccurate, stating: “RHS serves a lot of needs of the area and is not a government program. It is almost entirely self-supporting by the generous donations of Del Norters.” As a former employee, I would challenge that statement, knowing that nearly every program has some form of government funding. For example, the Supportive Living Services Program is fully funded by the Redwood Coast Regional Center, Harrington House and the Food Bank are funded by Community Development Block Grant monies, and the Work Force Center is government funded as well.

Get rid of Gitlin to start work on eliminating blight

I have had several disagreements with Safeway’s staff when it parroted the company line to me rather than answering my question straightforwardly. However, I find it to be a rather well-run store, and I have never encountered “blight” in my hundreds of trips to its parking lot.

Gitlin's conduct justifies removal from all boards

From the United States Department of Labor: “Intimidating or Harassing Behavior. Threats or other conduct which in any way create a hostile environment, impair agency operations; or frighten, alarm, or inhibit others.

Senior Sleuth: Interview with Solid Waste Director Ward

The words of Tedd Ward, director of the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority, from a recent interview:

Coastal Voices: C.A.N. could use your help to help others

Most readers of the Triplicate know about the Community Assistance Network (C.A.N.) because it has been around since 1995, providing food, clothes and other types of assistance to people in need. For those of you who’ve never heard of C.A.N., we are a Christian-oriented charity supported mostly by local churches and local individual donors. We no longer accept federal funding.

Do more to beautify town, make it easier to get around

I must concur with Mr. Gitlin. Our town is in dire need of sprucing up.

Pages of History: Honoring fighting sons

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

​The people of the Klamath section are justly proud of their sons and daughters who are in the Armed Services of their country and are planning the erection of a permanent honor roll as a lasting tribute to these heroes of World War II. Few other localities can boast of a greater contribution, and already three of Klamath’s valiant fighting men — Frank Isles Jr., Wayne A. Larson and Floyd Pilgrim — have made the supreme sacrifice.

Many people made ’85 reunion a success

On July 3, the Del Norte High School Class of 1985 held their 30 year class reunion. It was a funfilled evening with lots of laughter, stories and a few tears. The event was a huge success, thanks to many hours of hard work from members of the class.
