Undeterred by challenges of protesting rate increases

Seven years ago I protested the $42.5 million sewer upgrade/expansion. The questions in my mind before ever going on the City Council were:

Was the one and only bid by Wahlund fixed? Why did they start construction before doing a Prop 218 protest vote? How was a community of less than 30,000 people with about 3,800 people on sewer going to afford to pay $42.5 million? Why should the ratepayers be compelled to pay when the 11.8 percent expansion figure was pure fiction? Developers have to pay for expansion.


California Focus: Will voters create a de facto third party?

California voters created tectonic changes in state politics four years ago, when they approved the “top two” primary election system that takes effect in races for statewide offices next month.

The elusive state of Jefferson

There is a book written by Peter Lauffer, a professor at the University of Oregon, that is a comprehensive history of the state of Jefferson starting in the late 1800s in the rural counties of Southern Oregon and Northern California.

This movement reignited just before Pearl Harbor and actually was to the point of pushing Judge John Childs of Del Norte County as its governor. Pearl Harbor occurred and the effort disappeared in the fight to save our country in a world war.

I am absolutely not voting for Doehle

Judges have more power than we will ever know. It is very important to elect a judge who can be trusted with this power and authority. I don’t know what judge I will be voting for, but I do know that I am absolutely not voting for the incumbent and temporarily appointed judge, Chris Doehle. 


Did You Know?: We do not have to vote on everything

Is it really true that I am urging you not to vote? Yes, it’s partly true. Quite possibly you have an interest in several of the local races and may feel passionately about one or more races. It could be Measure A or any of the three local countywide races for office.


Coastal Voices: Correction: ‘Good news out of Sacramento’

My good friend Bob Berkowitz must have gotten a dose of bad data in his “Did You Know?” column (“Good news, bad news out of Sacramento,” May 20).

Dale Trigg has enough experience to be DA

Now let’s get the record straight. Dale Trigg has served 15 years as a prosecutor and defender, and because of his vast knowledge and experience with both criminal and civil law he was appointed temporary judge.


Coastal Voices: No loss of services under Critical Access

On behalf of my fellow Board members and our Medical Executive Committee of the medical staff of Sutter Coast Hospital, I would like to share what differences you can expect to see as a patient or consumer of health services if Sutter Coast Hospital is granted approval to become a Critical Access Hospital (CAH).

Apperson is dedicated to making county safer

Being a police officer means that when everyone is running away or are scared to take action law enforcement goes in, protects, helps and saves. Officers have high rates of divorce and health issues, and many don’t survive more than four years after retirement if they are fortunate enough to make it that long. They sacrifice so much including, but not limited to, precious time with family and friends, which leaves almost no personal time.
