McClure defeat heralds change

Two out of three supervisor races are undecided, but even if the incumbents keep their seats, Martha McClure’s defeat spells change for Del Norte County.

McClure will no longer be able to serve on the California Coastal Commission after she leaves her District 2 seat, which she has held for 20 years.

Meanwhile, her successor, Lori Cowan, has set her sights on a faster fix for Last Chance Grade, but says she doesn’t subscribe to the five-year plan touted by Roger Gitlin and Bob Berkowitz, who are still in the running for Districts 1 and 5 respectively.

Corrections, June 11, 2016

Crescent City Mayor Pro Tem Blake Inscore’s name was spelled incorrectly in a June 2 story concerning city council’s search for a new city manager.

A page one headline Thursday incorrectly stated Crescent City Council’s actions regarding allocations for Rural Human Services (RHS) and the municipal swimming pool. As stated in story, the council agreed to continue allocating $300,000 to RHS from a state Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The council also voted to give RHS an additional $40,000 from a $200,000 allocation originally earmarked for the pool.

City wants bulk of grant to go to pool, not RHS

Rural Human Services could be getting additional money from Crescent City but not anything close to what agency directors say they need to cope with growing numbers of victims of domestic violence and the hungry.

At Crescent City Council’s meeting Monday, RHS requested all of some $200,000 public service funding included as part of a $2 million state grant the city is seeking. After much discussion, City Council agreed to allot RHS $40,000, should the city succeed in obtaining the grant. The remaining $160,000, councilors agreed on a unanimous vote, should go to offsetting costs for operating the municipal swimming pool.
