Jetty’s relative safety must be considered

Del Norte County presents many hazards for those who participate in exercise or leisure activities. One can be swept out to sea while walking on the beach with a strong tidal flux. One can be mauled by a bear or mountain lion while jogging on a trail. One may even be thrashed to the side of a road while walking or cycling and being hit by a “sneaker” automobile traveling on Pebble Beach Drive or other narrow roads in the area.

Veterans deserve better than $6 charge for dinner

Is this the way we treat our Veterans? I was shocked when I read in Saturday’s newspaper (“Honoring their service”) that Veterans not in uniform or active duty would be charged $6 for their chicken steak dinner at the Veterans Day dinner.


Pages of History: Ice cream and wild chickens

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

There’ll be an ice cream eating contest in Smith River Saturday. People chasing wild chickens, too. Balloons all over the place. 

It’s all part of Frank Endert’s spanking new Smith River Drug store, Smith River’s first drug store to be exact.


Coastal Voices: Bridging the party divide for Del Norte

My name is Richard Enea. I am the recently re-elected Crescent City Council member and a proud member of the Del Norte Democratic Party.

My name is Roger Gitlin. I am the Del Norte County supervisor for District 1 and am a proud Tea Party supporter and member of the Del Norte Republican Party.

A caring community can prevent tragedies 

How do we support Del Norte Community Health Center to bring better health care to the citizens of Del Norte County? 


Coastal Voices: Rural Human Services: ‘Help us help people’

Rural Human Services is proud to announce today that it is embarking on its first-ever community fundraising campaign, known as “Help Us Help People.” This is an exciting new direction and represents a significant departure from how RHS traditionally has been funded. A little background might be helpful in understanding this new effort.

For more than 30 years, RHS has been a fixture in Del Norte County. It is estimated that our community outreach programs touch thousands of lives a month and continue to provide an array of services to the people of Del Norte.

‘Harebrained’ proposal to fine good Samaritans

The silly idea of passing a law to fine good Samaritans who give charity to the downtrodden will cost the taxpayers money and only make lawyers happy, who will sue to block enforcement of an unconstitutional, harebrained, grandstanding concoction.


Pages of History: Tidal surges sink boats

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, November 1952.

Big tidal surge 

A series of tidal surges sank four local fishing boats. A fifth boat was turned upside down by the freak tide, righted itself and remained afloat.


Coastal Voices: Panhandling rule would improve public safety

It would appear the professional beggar has more rights than law-abiding citizens in Del Norte County. The issue of panhandling is neither a left nor right issue. This is a public health and safety issue.

I support Supervisor Roger Gitlin for bringing to light at Tuesday’s Oct. 28 Board of Supervisors meeting Del Norte’s caustic plague of criminals and vagrants endangering the health and safety of residents and visitors while panhandling, displaying public drunkenness, urinating and (hold your nose) defecating in open view while begging through automobile windows and blocking traffic as they rise from their prone position from public sidewalks and business-owned parking lots and green spaces.


Coastal Voices: Private and public roles in reducing costs

In his Oct. 2 letter to the editor, Del Norte County Unified School District Board member Don McArthur noted a Del Norte County supervisor was quoted in The Triplicate saying the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority should function more as a utility than as an agent for social change. Supervisor Mike Sullivan, who made the “public utility” statement, did so to support efforts to save costs to customers while complying with solid waste and recycling laws. Though Mr. McArthur’s opinion is certainly a respectable one, he omitted many extraordinary efforts that Recology Del Norte has made as a private company to work with the school district to encourage recycling and reduce costs.
