Miscommunication on donation to Sr. Center

My name is Charlaine Mazzei. I am the executive director of the Del Norte Senior Center. In response to the Nov. 18 letter from Mr. Ruel Wilson (“$10K donation meant
to save Sr. Center salad”), I would like to apologize for any offense my quoted statements in Saturday’s Triplicate article may have caused. When speaking to the Triplicate, I was not aware Mr. Wilson wished to have his generous donation publicly acknowledged in honor of his wife, Mary Judy Wilson. I identified the donation as coming from an anonymous donor to maintain privacy. I did not intend to slight  Mrs. Wilson or her husband and apologize if I inadvertently did so.


Pages of History: Rare goose visits area

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

Rare bird found at Tule Lake

An Emperor goose, a species infrequently seen in California, was captured on the Tule Lake Refuge this week by Department of Fish and Game personnel.

The bird, an immature male, had been crippled by shot. It was taken to Gray Lodge Waterfowl Management Area near Gridley where it was placed in an exhibit pen.

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.

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.
