A look back at DN’s 1980 cheerleaders

My interest in cheerleading goes family-deep for me, since my youngest daughter Kim was a cheerleader for Yucca Valley High school and my granddaughter Samantha Killen was a Warrior cheerleader here.

So when a cheerleader from 1980, the year I returned to work at Del Norte, called my attention to how hard cheerleaders work, I decided to look back at cheerleading in 1980 and compare it to 2014.

Storm blows chimney off of Memorial Hall

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, February of 1952.

The chimney blew off Memorial Hall on Saturday night as a result of high winds. County offices located in the building were without heat most of Monday while the chimney was repaired.

Because of the cold, Judge Samuel A. Finley ordered a court session moved downstairs to the supervisors’ rooms, which were not so cold. The case of Wilson vs. Guerney proceeded.

Clarke Moore taking both sides of issue

Will the real Clarke Moore please stand up?

I was intrigued by an ad in the Feb 6 Triplicate submitted by the Del Norte County Healthcare District in which it is stated that the board voted unanimously in its Jan. 28 meeting that Sutter Coast Hospital should remain a locally owned acute care hospital.

Coastal Voices: Asante Health would not be a good fit for the North Coast

The Jan. 28 edition of The Triplicate contained two letters, raising some points again about the future of the hospital and expressing the desire to see Asante or some other hospital company here to guarantee “full service.”

As readers may recall, I was one of three physicians who joined the steering committee for the Camden Group study. The Camden Group went to great lengths to explore the proposal of transferring affiliation of the hospital to a different corporation.

Coastal Voices: Big Rock Service District survey was done properly

I’m replying to an article written by Jessica Cejnar, entitled “Supervisors defer issue of new state,” that appeared in the Triplicate on Jan. 16.  

She paraphrased comments made by Supervisor Martha McClure at a meeting of the Board of Supervisors, where McClure “spoke out against a survey the Big Rock CSD (Hiouchi) sent to its customers” regarding the Jefferson state initiative.

Execs paid millions as Sutter claims hardship

I would like to add my name to the thousands of local residents who are opposing the recent decision by Sutter Health and the Sutter Coast Hospital Board of Directors to downsize the hospital in order to qualify for higher Medicare payments under the federal Critical Access program. If Sutter Coast is permitted to downsize, there will only be 25 acute care hospital beds for the communities of Crescent City and Brookings.

Government must analyze state of Jefferson proposal

I am writing in response to Sue Sullivan’s letter (“Jefferson backers should provide needed info,” Feb. 13) in which she calls for “an independent fiscal analysis being provided by the group that supports the state of Jefferson.”

Would Ms. Sullivan actually accept such an analysis by the Jefferson proponents as “independent”? Of course not.

Coastal Voices: Valentine’s weekend could be another Thanksgiving Day

I guess you can say I am a new mom. I had my daughter last August but have helped raise my step-daughter since she was just a few days old and that was December 2010.

I have always heard the love of a mother was a rare one and now I understand. I knew right away the moment I looked into my baby’s beautiful brown eyes that I was the luckiest mom in the whole world. And because of this new found love I have a new appreciation for every day, every holiday.
