Board’s prayer debacle is just a smokescreen

For those of you who have been following the great prayer debacle, let me interject my opinion on what I see as an outsider and interested citizen. 

It’s a smokescreen. Wannabe Imperial Majesty Emperor Finigan seems to be haranguing Supervisor Gitlin over the prayer idea, along with refusing Supervisor Gitlin to speak after he gets lambasted by a woman holding a Bible and blaspheming him. That little tirade alone shows that Finigan lets anything go by as long as it suits his perverse pleasure at other folks’ distress. 


Coastal Voices: Prayer should not be used divisively

I am Steven Perez, Pastor of Hiouchi Community Fellowship. About the issue of prayer at the meetings of the county Board of Supervisors, I believe it is necessary for me to provide a different perspective. 

I support Supervisor David Finigan regarding prayer. As chairperson, David demonstrated wisdom that respects the broad definition of prayer across all religious and cultural expressions of faith so integral in our community.

Uncharted Shores has taken all steps to protect children

This public statement is being issued in response to a recent article in the local Triplicate (“Ice cream vendor accused of lewd conduct,” June 17) which contained numerous factual inaccuracies regarding Uncharted Shores Academy (USA). Specifically, the article incorrectly infers that 1.) the accused is a current employee of USA, 2.) the alleged incidents occurred at USA, and 3.) Del Norte County Office of Education Superintendent Don Olson advised USA to place the employee on paid administrative leave.


Pages of History: Easter lily parade set for Sunday

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, June 1952:

The only Easter lily parade of the world will pass in annual review Sunday at Brookings. The parade is timed to the peak of the blooming season at the Croft Easter lily acreage.


Coastal Voices: Where’s the next generation of golfers?

I spent this past Father’s Day at Kings Valley Golf Course with my father participating in their annual Father Son/Daughter golf tournament. It was great! Seeing all the fathers golfing with either their son or daughter was wonderful. Kings Valley Golf Course put on a great tournament. Kudos to them!

Golf has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and, honestly, I owe it more than I can ever repay.  When I graduated from Del Norte High School and went off to college, I never thought I would return to this county, but I am very happy I did.  However, I am saddened to see the game that gave me so much when I was growing up is now dying in this county.  The next generation club member, golf ball shanker, ground hacker and “hole-in-one” maker aren’t populating our local clubs, or, if they are, they are in very small numbers.

Responsibility lacking in drunk driving case

Responsibility as defined in the dictionary: A) The state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something; B) The state of being the person who caused something to occur; C) Moral accountability for one’s actions. Ultimate responsibility would be acountability — the willingness to account for ones actions.


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.

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are supposed to be the frontrunners for 2016? Are you kidding me?
