Coastal Voices: Don’t give up on voting

Lest we forget, I just want to voice my feelings since having read that on June 3 less than half of the voters turned out to vote. 

I’m trying to figure that out. Let’s step back into history. The colonists took whatever weapons they had, some only strong enough to voice the need for what was right and good, others more enabled. In one way or another, they fought for independence and won. We formed rules and regulations, and one by one did all that could be done to be heard and to hold dear all that caused the creation of those rules. We made a constitution, and in 1791 amendments were ratified that came to become a part of that constitution as well.

Low turnout no mandate against Jefferson state

I see in Saturday’s paper (June 7) where Keep It California campaign director Kevin Hendrick took out an ad celebrating the victory over Measure A. He cited the 59 percent who voted no on Measure A as a crushing defeat for the Jefferson state backers. 


Coastal Voices: Does Del Norte have an emperor?

I write this piece in response to the arrogant behavior by Board of Supervisors Chairman David Finigan. At a Board of Supervisors meeting, Chairman Finigan spoke and acted like he was the emperor of Del Norte County. I urge all residents of this County to watch the video of the Board meeting for May 27 (31:30-01:08:00).

Carelessly left ember is a fire season warning for us

To the person who left a burning ember of some kind at the lower end of Blackhawk Bar: When we got there on Saturday there was a 15-foot-round hot spot of burning dirt. The wind was howling, and before our eyes we saw flames come to life.
