Bob Berkowitz should heed his firm's findings

The article in last Thursday’s paper, (“Survey: Local voters value honesty”, July 23) is ironic. Why? Because its author, former politician and current campaign consultant Bob Berkowitz recently paid for a full-page ad in this paper (June 25) that was full of untruths and distortion of facts. In addition, his July 2 Coastal Voices op-ed (“Yes we can: Ordinary citizens are making a difference in DN”) was similarly inaccurate, stating: “RHS serves a lot of needs of the area and is not a government program. It is almost entirely self-supporting by the generous donations of Del Norters.” As a former employee, I would challenge that statement, knowing that nearly every program has some form of government funding. For example, the Supportive Living Services Program is fully funded by the Redwood Coast Regional Center, Harrington House and the Food Bank are funded by Community Development Block Grant monies, and the Work Force Center is government funded as well.

Get rid of Gitlin to start work on eliminating blight

I have had several disagreements with Safeway’s staff when it parroted the company line to me rather than answering my question straightforwardly. However, I find it to be a rather well-run store, and I have never encountered “blight” in my hundreds of trips to its parking lot.

Gitlin's conduct justifies removal from all boards

From the United States Department of Labor: “Intimidating or Harassing Behavior. Threats or other conduct which in any way create a hostile environment, impair agency operations; or frighten, alarm, or inhibit others. Psychological intimidation or harassment includes making statements which are false, malicious, disparaging, derogatory, rude, disrespectful, abusive, obnoxious, insubordinate, or which have the intent to hurt others' reputations.”

Do more to beautify town, make it easier to get around

I must concur with Mr. Gitlin. Our town is in dire need of sprucing up.

Many people made ’85 reunion a success

On July 3, the Del Norte High School Class of 1985 held their 30 year class reunion. It was a funfilled evening with lots of laughter, stories and a few tears. The event was a huge success, thanks to many hours of hard work from members of the class.

C.A.N. thanks community for supporting fundraiser

The Community Assistance Network (C.A.N.) food bank would like to express its gratitude to all the people who made our Fourth of July fireworks fundraiser such a great success. Special appreciation goes to all the members of the public who purchased fireworks at our booth, enabling us to continue feeding the hungry of Crescent City and Del Norte County. A huge thanks goes to Pastor Brett Wells and Faith Christian Center of Smith River for donating their deluxe fireworks booth to C.A.N. and for co-laboring with us at the booth this year, and for giving us the opportunity to continue this fundraiser for years to come. We’re also enormously grateful to Two Guys, who loaned us the use of a flatbed truck; to Cliff Coulton for letting us borrow his truck and trailer and to Ace hardware for generously letting us use their parking lot and facilities. Last but not least, we’d like to thank the many C.A.N. volunteers who gave of their time and labor to sell fireworks and to set up and break down the booth. And, naturally, we thank God, from whom all blessings flow.

Huffman: Balanced pace to Last Chance bypass

I read with interest Supervisor Roger Gitlin’s concerns about the progress of the Last Change Grade project under consideration by Caltrans (“Coastal Voices: Last Chance moving faster than solutions,” July 9). Mr. Gitlin’s voice is welcome in the process, both in the press and in Caltrans’ public process that is running parallel to the process undertaken by the Last Chance Grade Stakeholder group. I convened this group with urgency in mind; there is little doubt that Last Chance Grade will fail, sooner or later.

Poking holes in critique of of Berkowitz' ad 

In her hole-poking Coastal Voices titled “Anti-Grand Jury ad full of holes” (July 11), Elizabeth Henry assails Bob Berkowitz’ ad as she attempts to nullify the points Mr. Berkowitz develops in his ad regarding the “Grand Jury run amok” (June 25). Owing to the 400-word limit of letters to the editor, I shall confine my response to two points that she raises.

Facts don't support jury recommendation

Lately you’ve seen evidence where the 2014–15 Grand Jury attempted to shred the reputations of elected officials and at least one civilian based on no factual evidence.
