Leave Prop 13 alone 

Regarding Thomas Elias’ column mentioning proposed Prop 13 repeal for business property:
According to a recent blog by David Stockman, formerly Reagan’s budget director, the real current national unemployment rate is a
jaw-dropping 42.9 percent, not the 5.5 percent figure publicly released.



Pages of History: Celebration for the red, white, blue!


Crescent City was host to a big flock of visitors over the July 4th holiday, with a fast-moving celebration program that kept the crowd completely entertained throughout the day. Weather conditions here were just about perfect for the occasion, hundreds of automobiles lining Ocean Drive to witness the parade, which started the day’s festivities. The celebration committee kept things running smoothly, the parade being immediately followed by the treasure hunt for the kiddies, then the kid’s races, both of which distributed considerable cash among the youngsters.


Coastal Voices: Yes we can

 Ordinary citizens are making a difference in DN

I was pleasantly surprised by the insightful Coastal Voices article written by 19 year old Makenzy Williams (“We’re fortunate to have great people,” June 11). At the age of 16, she began to get a sense of what it was like to go beyond thinking and acting in her own interests. She saw her community as a place where she could make a difference, and she has, by getting involved as an Americorps VISTA volunteer.

A near-perfect trip and a returned purse

On June 23 my daughter forgot her purse on the rocks by the lighthouse in Crescent City. After a frantic search a few hours later,  she started making the needed calls to cancel her debit and credit cards, etc. As a family we resolved not to allow this to dampen our spirits on our family vacation.

Berkowitz’ ad is full of one-sentence falsehoods

To anyone who has been following the trials of the Solid Waste Authority for the past several years, the recent and very detailed Grand Jury report on the public agency was little more than a public release of what we have known all along. Now we have a full page ad in the Triplicate (page A3, June 25) paid for by a private citizen, Bob Berkowitz, attacking the report. The jurors did their homework, and a great deal of it, and now Bob is asking us to disagree with its finding based on single-sentence statements of his own. Let’s look at these:

Facts speak volumes in Grand Jury Report

I am writing in my promised response to anyone misquoting the amount that went missing over a period of 10 years from the Solid Waste Management Authority. According to the Grand Jury Report, the amount ranges according to who is asked. The Triplicate reported more than a year ago that the actual figure for the unaccounted money was closer to $9,000.

Pages of History: The case of the restless tombstone

From the page of the Del Norte Triplicate, June 1955:

Crescent City has a restless tombstone, or at least a vandal with a morbid sense of humor. Last week police reported that a headstone from a local cemetery had been found in a telephone booth outside the phone company’s office and that a local mortician had returned it to the graveyard.
