Let’s come up with ideas to improve Crescent City 

Reading today about a gentleman’s position about Crescent City going downhill (and) Brookings thriving: we need to come up with new ideas to fix things. Maybe have a contest for new ideas?

Go-kart races would bring in people not only racing but  watching. A three-day event. Even live bands tied in with a farmers market and restaurants.


Editor's Choice: The long search for Seth Ramnarace

Where does one begin looking for a homeless old friend? One who has been on the streets for over 30 years? For me, it is the Internet and searches of police booking reports.

A couple of years ago, after trying to get into contact with old family friends for many years I found his sister’s address and phone number and called her. She said her brother, Seth Ramnarace, was afflicted with paranoia and other mental disorders that left him unwilling, or unable to continue relationships with his family.


Coastal Voices: Crescent City is going downhill; Brookings thrives

Some points to ponder:

Why does Crescent City look like the rundown town that it is? Next time you go to Brookings to get gas, look at their main street. Neat and clean, flower baskets everywhere, nice looking storefronts and no homeless falling all over each other.

What are the Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Business District, city councilors, county supervisors and civic associations doing to combat our only growing industry: vacant buildings?

Dogs off leash a problem in harbor

In Del Norte County we do have a leash ordinance although there are some who choose to let their dogs run loose, make a nuisance and harm other animals. 

This is a particular problem at the Crescent City Harbor. Understood that the sheriff’s department is stretched thin responding to other crimes but at minimum there should be signs posted to inform the public where their dogs are required to be on a leash. I have dogs myself and there are many fine places in our county to take them for some exercise without allowing them to run amok on sidewalks and parking lots at the Harbor.

Coastal Voices: Heading north to go south not so bad

The idea of flying to Portland in order to board a southbound non-stop to California markets seems counterintuitive to many and please believe me when I say I understand. Upon further examination, however, it makes much more sense and I’d like to explain why:

Will new bike trails be ADA compliant?

I hope the new trails being considered for bicyclists are in compliance with ADA Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas, regulation 36 CFR Part 1191, RIN 3014-AA22.  

​Single​ purpose construction, modification and improvement which blocks access to all potential handicapped users is not allowed. Why not build a trail for all users? Guidelines are readily available at the United States Access Board website.

Thanks go out for a beautiful Fourth

Thanks to Bryant Anderson for the spectacular fireworks picture in the paper. That’s a keeper. And, thanks to the man upstairs for the weather allowing the wonderful fireworks display on the Fourth.

‘Rocky’ Peterson plaque should be in the public view

Reading Dick Trone’s sports page column in the July 2 edition of the Del Norte Triplicate titled “38 grad Roscoe ‘Rocky’ Peterson” is very
enlightening.

Finigan pats his back while Gitlin takes on issues

Last week’s Triplicate account of the Board of Supervisors meeting re: sparring over homelessness panel was second rate and inadequate. 

The disingenuous self-serving District 5 Supervisor David Finigan had himself appointed as the county representative to the Ad Hoc Committee for Community Homelessness. Maybe the community is unaware that 61 percent of the voter electorate in District 5 voted against Finigan in the June primary. 


Vet Talk: Agent Orange: Dispelling the Myths

Serving in the military is never easy. Veterans have been instilled in the culture of putting it all on the line; blood, sweat, and tears.  

Many of us veterans still bear the scars of our service, some of which are visible while others are only seen in our memories. Many of these hazards were induced due to the situations we faced but some were caused by environmental exposure while serving our great nation.
