From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1949.
Be there a man in Del Norte County who doubts the need and the desirability of a public utility dock in Crescent harbor, let him look upon the activities of his neighbors.
These citizens, in the realization that a public dock is a must, acted spontaneously to make it a reality. They are giving of their time and resources to make it a reality. People cannot be stirred to such action without cause.
The cause, in this instance, is a matter of vital importance to each and every one of us in Del Norte County and in the surrounding areas. It means new life to the economic activity of the entire area.
The public dock now under construction opens the sea lanes for passage of lumber and other shipments in and out of Crescent harbor. There is to be room on it for fishermen and for the oil companies when it is finished. Each will stir the slumbering economic potentiality of Del Norte.
Where trade is active there is money. Where one industry prospers, others cannot fail to gain. From lumberman and fisherman, to farmer and store clerk, will be felt the results of activity possible through completion of Citizens Dock.
