City needs to ban candy throwing from parade

To the City Council and all citizens of Del Norte:

July 4 is just around the corner. Please have in place an ordinance forbidding candy to be thrown from vehicles in the parade.

Pages of History: Dinner party honors Mrs. Martinelli

As a birthday celebration to honor Mrs. Elmo Martinelli, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Ames entertained with a dinner party at their home on Eighth Street Monday evening.

Following the delicious repast, gifts were presented to the honored guest. 

Coastal Voices: This is hard enough as it is

Dear family, friends, Del Norte and Curry counties,

I am writing this to you regarding the article in the Triplicate on Saturday regarding our niece Danielle (“Missing woman’s remains identified”). A family never plans for someone so young to die, let alone a death like our niece’s; we do not wish this on anyone.

Coastal Voices: Correcting the Sutter Health record, again

After watching Sutter Coast Hospital (“SCH”) CEO Mitch Hanna’s presentation to our Board of Supervisors in April, I am compelled to respond. Some of Mr. Hanna’s information was welcome news — for example, the fact that Sutter Coast was profitable in 2014. Recall the prior two Sutter Coast CEO’s painted a “gloom and doom” financial scenario, unless Sutter Coast downsized to Critical Access status (which will allow SCH to triple its Medicare charges). Take a look at the 2013 article entitled, “CEO: Sutter Coast Hospital losing money” available online at www.currypilot.com/News/Local-News/CEO-Sutter-Coast-Hospital-losing-money.

Clearing the air on anti-cannabis screed 

“As far as Jane Christmas knows” should definitely be used to preface the claims in her anti-cannabis screed (“To county: Consider pot’s harm before legalization,” May 26). While smoking anything can be detrimental to the lungs and could cause respiratory problems, cannabis, unlike nicotine, has actually been demonstrated not to be implicated in either lung or colorectal cancers.

Coastal Voices: Busting myths about education myths

There has been a lot of talk about education in the paper recently. Last Thursday, Bob Berkowitz gave advice to graduates about four “myths you were taught in school” (Coastal Voices, May 28). In Saturday’s paper, Jessica Cejnar wrote about a presentation to the school board titled “Literacy: A Vaccine for Poverty” (“Community called to action,” May 30). I am writing to address issues brought up in both articles.

More about True North meeting in Klamath

I am very grateful that the Triplicate shared an informative piece (“Klamath parents ask school dist. to address needs,” May 26) on the True North action of May 20 in Klamath. As a parent and a True North leader, I would like to add some major pieces of the event that are very important to highlight that were not mentioned in the article.

Coastal Voices: Kidtown in CC: A community asset

It was only a few years ago that a determined set of local folks decided that they were going to bring the community together and build a park dedicated to the children of Del Norte County. The plans were in place, the committee was formed, and immediately they were faced with the substantial task of gathering the estimated $115,000 necessary to pay for the planning and materials for a project that would become known as “Kidtown” in Crescent City. The community had raised funds for large projects in the past, but that was done during the time of “Big Timber Companies,” and contributions from those related to the industry helped many projects succeed. It was different now and money was tougher to come by in Del Norte County.

Pages of History: Lieutenant in WAC now

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, May 1945:

The War Department today announced the promotion of Barbara C. Ward, Women’s Army Corps, to the rank of first lieutenant at the Third WAC training center in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. Lt. Ward is serving as a company officer in the Enlisted Women’s Technician School.

Coastal Voices: To new grads: Myths you were taught in school

This is meant for all of you who are graduating from high school. Graduation time is here. It’s a time for new beginnings for those students graduating from our Del Norte schools. It’s a period when the graduates decide what path they want to take to get to their future. They will be inundated with all kinds of advice from their teachers, parents and friends. A lot of that advice will be just plain wrong. It’s the myths that many people have considered gospel, but in my mind are just plain myths.
