Coastal Voices: Busting myths about education myths

There has been a lot of talk about education in the paper recently. Last Thursday, Bob Berkowitz gave advice to graduates about four “myths you were taught in school” (Coastal Voices, May 28). In Saturday’s paper, Jessica Cejnar wrote about a presentation to the school board titled “Literacy: A Vaccine for Poverty” (“Community called to action,” May 30). I am writing to address issues brought up in both articles.

More about True North meeting in Klamath

I am very grateful that the Triplicate shared an informative piece (“Klamath parents ask school dist. to address needs,” May 26) on the True North action of May 20 in Klamath. As a parent and a True North leader, I would like to add some major pieces of the event that are very important to highlight that were not mentioned in the article.


Coastal Voices: Kidtown in CC: A community asset

It was only a few years ago that a determined set of local folks decided that they were going to bring the community together and build a park dedicated to the children of Del Norte County. The plans were in place, the committee was formed, and immediately they were faced with the substantial task of gathering the estimated $115,000 necessary to pay for the planning and materials for a project that would become known as “Kidtown” in Crescent City. The community had raised funds for large projects in the past, but that was done during the time of “Big Timber Companies,” and contributions from those related to the industry helped many projects succeed. It was different now and money was tougher to come by in Del Norte County.


Pages of History: Lieutenant in WAC now

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

The War Department today announced the promotion of Barbara C. Ward, Women’s Army Corps, to the rank of first lieutenant at the Third WAC training center in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Lt. Ward is serving as a company officer in the Enlisted Women’s Technician School.


Coastal Voices: To new grads: Myths you were taught in school

This is meant for all of you who are graduating from high school. Graduation time is here. It’s a time for new beginnings for those students graduating from our Del Norte schools. It’s a period when the graduates decide what path they want to take to get to their future. They will be inundated with all kinds of advice from their teachers, parents and friends. A lot of that advice will be just plain wrong. It’s the myths that many people have considered gospel, but in my mind are just plain myths.

We need more of the right type of farms

I’d like to comment on Joan Miles’ May 12 Senior Sleuth column (“Howard: Preserving a way of life for future”) in which County Supervisor Chris Howard said, “We need more farms in Del Norte.” For sure! But what type of farm is equally important.

To county: Consider pot’s harm before legalization

An open letter to the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors: 

Before considering legalization of recreational smoked marijuana, this might be a good time to think a little harder about the long-term consequences.


Coastal Voices: Also honor those who protect freedoms here

 Sometimes the muse calls from different places — the channel markers and sea lions, your back pages or in this case, an old song by some men I met long ago in East Los Angeles, a community and people that seem so familiar this evening. Penned by David Hidalgo and Louis Perez, two-fifths of Los Lobos, I listened to words that seemed so poignant:

Mom, family of Dante thank those helping to bring justice

On Sunday, May 3, I made a decision no mother should ever have to make — to turn off the life support system of her child.


Pages of History: Watch your parking

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, May 1955: 

The reconstructed Crescent City Police force was up to full strength this week and functioning smoothly, it was announced yesterday by Chief William Burke.
