Pages of History: Coast redwoods not largest nor oldest

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, July 1965:

​Don’t feel badly if you think the coast redwoods are the oldest, largest, or slowest growing trees, for although you are wrong, you have plenty of company.

Huffman: Balanced pace to Last Chance bypass

I read with interest Supervisor Roger Gitlin’s concerns about the progress of the Last Change Grade project under consideration by Caltrans (“Coastal Voices: Last Chance moving faster than solutions,” July 9). Mr. Gitlin’s voice is welcome in the process, both in the press and in Caltrans’ public process that is running parallel to the process undertaken by the Last Chance Grade Stakeholder group. I convened this group with urgency in mind; there is little doubt that Last Chance Grade will fail, sooner or later.

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.
