Did you know? Was Measure A fix in all the time?

I have often made the mistake of making a decision after hearing only one side of an argument. When I discovered all of the facts I got a different perspective that presented the problem in a different light. Making that mistake as an individual is one thing.

Drossel’s experience shows he’s right for DA

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to elect Bob Drossel as our next district attorney. I have known Bob Drossel since I moved to Northern California over two years ago.

He faces the facts and uses his solid judicial background to make wise decisions; no nonsense, just solid decision-making and leadership.

Henion's experience makes him best choice

Del Norte County has an excellent opportunity to select Dohn Henion as a Superior Court Judge. I have known Mr. Henion since 1984 and consider him an excellent and distinguished attorney, counselor of law and advocate. From 1984–1988 I worked at the Del Norte County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Henion was a criminal defense attorney at the time and his work was always well thought out, hard hitting and effective. He possessed the rare ability to analyze cases thoroughly and present exceptional legal and oral advocacy.

Reason why more rapes reported now

I noticed in Jim Maready’s ad that he refers to the numbers of rapes reported having gone up in this past 10 years. I say that more reporting of this crime is a good thing.

It used to be, in Mr. Maready’s day and age, women were often afraid as they would then become victimized again by the system.
