From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1959.
From an editorial printed Jan. 8:
Del Norte County’s history has been marked by internal dissensions, splits, and periodic political disturbances which have gained it a dubious reputation throughout the state. This past year was no exception.
The county’s peace, politically, was disrupted several times over. One expects disagreements at election time, but aside from that, there were several splits over such questions as building codes and county management problems.
The people of Del Norte County have gotten together in the past. The building of Citizen’s Dock through donated labor, material, and money was an outstanding example that gained nationwide publicity for Del Norte and its people. People on both sides of the political fence are now in agreement that something must be done to unite all factions in Del Norte County to solve our most pressing problems.
Del Norte County has much to offer visitors. It should have much more. The potential is here, but it needs developing, and the world must constantly be told about these attractions.
