Coastal Voices: Right time for river protection from mining

Big time mining could change the face of some of our most iconic local rivers.  In Oregon, large mines have been proposed for years in the Rough and Ready Creek area and now a foreign mining corporation proposes test drilling for nickel in the beautiful headwater area of Baldface Creek in the North Fork Smith River, and in the North Fork Pistol River and Hunter Creek watersheds in the Rogue River – Siskiyou National Forest.

Poking holes in critique of of Berkowitz' ad 

In her hole-poking Coastal Voices titled “Anti-Grand Jury ad full of holes” (July 11), Elizabeth Henry assails Bob Berkowitz’ ad as she attempts to nullify the points Mr. Berkowitz develops in his ad regarding the “Grand Jury run amok” (June 25). Owing to the 400-word limit of letters to the editor, I shall confine my response to two points that she raises.

Facts don't support jury recommendation

Lately you’ve seen evidence where the 2014–15 Grand Jury attempted to shred the reputations of elected officials and at least one civilian based on no factual evidence.

Coastal Voices: Anti-Grand Jury ad full of holes

Full page ads like the one from political consultant Bob Berkowitz criticizing the Grand Jury report in the June 25 Triplicate cost $1,612.50, but his ad is not worth the paper it was printed on. It is based on distortion and innuendo. It doesn't add anything to an informed discussion of the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority and denigrates the local citizens who devoted a year to researching and writing a comprehensive report. Jurors take an oath of secrecy, which is binding for life, so they are not able to respond to his specious claims, and Berkowitz uses this to his advantage throughout the ad. While Berkowitz is quick to claim that he is a patriot and a conservative, he has no qualms about discrediting a historic institution which was discussed by the framers of the Constitution and included in the Fifth Amendment. 

Pages of History: Ouch, that had to hurt

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

Coastal Voices: Last Chance moving faster than solutions

Yikes! It’s still moving.

Reaction of S.C. victims' families rejects violence 

How we react to things is so important! The recent case of the slaughtered persons in South Carolina, who were attending a Bible study class, is an example. Apparently, the accused killer wanted to start a race war. Ironically, the reaction of the families of the victims (and the characteristic behavior of the victims) is one of giving and forgiveness, even for the accused killer.

Mandatory vaccination another hit on liberties

Regarding the July 2 letter by Dr John Nelson, president, Humboldt / Del Norte Medical Society (“Legislators show commitment to health,” July 2):

Coastal Voices: America, a thing worth fighting for

There’s something about holidays, among other things, that always manages to motivate pen to paper for me — that and the gracious people at my hometown paper who allow me space on their pages.
