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.

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.

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.
