We cover your local news: your city and county, your local sports, your harbor and your local law enforcement. We cover the events your non-profits put on to raise money for your causes, and we are the newspaper of record for Del Norte County. Bottom line, we are your local newspaper.

Public pay phones should be available for those who can’t afford a cell phone

Last month my husband had an appointment in Brookings with a cardiologist. He’d previously seen the doctor in years past.

Upon arriving in Brookings at what had previously been the cardiologist’s office, we were informed that his location had moved and they did not know where.


Pages of History: Pound pups for presents

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1958:

Is anyone hoping that Santa Claus is carrying in his bag of gifts some nice baby puppies? 

Anyone receiving such a request or hearing of such a wish might contact L.J. Garrett, county agricultural commissioner. Garrett reported yesterday that nine healthy baby puppies had just been turned in to the poundmaster.

Patients will feel extra cost of Sutter changes

I’m writing to let readers know that if the Board of Directors of Sutter Coast Hospital follows through with their plans to downsize our hospital to meet federal Critical Access requirements, there will be an additional cost to Medicare.

According to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services, converting to Critical Access will allow the hospital to bill Medicare more than triple the amount the hospital now receives from Medicare under the hospital’s current designation as a non-Critical Access Hospital.

County workers honored for another year’s service

The final Board of Supervisors meeting for 2014 was an occasion of proclamations of gratitude for work well done on our behalf. Department heads who are retiring from county service were commended for their accomplishments. Sheriff Wilson thanked the board for its support and reported that he was leaving the department in better condition than when he came aboard. Dawn Langston was thanked for her years as treasurer-tax collector and reminded everyone that the next day was tax day. Louise Wilson, retiring assessor, introduced her staff with comments about each one and thanked her predecessor, Jerry Cochran. Supervisor Michael Sullivan gave a heartfelt good-bye and thanks for the support of the board as he leaves his position. Chairman Finnegan remarked that being an elected official means sacrifice of time and energy.

Sutter’s focus on money sends patient to Oregon

I would like to tell my fellow citizens that my doctor has moved to Brookings, Ore., and I have followed her even though I continue to live in Del Norte County.

I’m a retired nurse and was more than satisfied with her practice, along with being very dissatisfied with practices I saw at Sutter Coast Hospital ruled by Sutter Health actions and policies.


Coastal Voices: Still time to make charitable donations

As we get closer to the end of 2014, thoughts go to finding the perfect gift for loved ones. ’Tis the season of giving: of gifts, of parties, and of donations to charities. Some 40 percent of all individual charitable donations are made in December.

I first experienced my own taste of “philanthropy” when I was very young from my parents. My parents raised us seven kids on a very modest budget, but always found a way to give back. 


Pages of History: Bumper crop of babies at the hospital

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1952:

A bonanza crop of babies had Seaside Hospital staffers in a dither this week. The nursery Tuesday afternoon was considerably over-populated, with 12 very young infants occupying the space originally designed for six.

Monday and Tuesday set some sort of a record in hospital annals, with a total of nine babies being born and a strong possibility that more would arrive before long.

Rare moonlight rainbow highlights nature’s beauty

It started out as another typical duck hunting day, getting up early to head out to the Lake Earl Wildlife Area.  As I headed through Pacific Shores toward Lake Tolowa and the Pacific Ocean, a very bright full moon hung halfway up the western sky illuminating the landscape and road. Out on the ocean the glow of high-intensity lights from crabbers spread across the low westerly view. In the eastern sky a cloud bank hung low over northern Crescent City and Fort Dick.
