Joyce Daniel stood among hundreds of flags fluttering in the breeze at the Del Norte County Veterans Cemetery on Monday. Dozens of people crowded around the flagpole as Korean War veteran Stan Jones lit the eternal flame and Bob Cochran sang “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” but Daniel, 82, stayed near the grave of her son, Martin. 

Water regulations: California monitoring mandate draws fire

While the rest of California may still be struggling with drought, Del Norte County is not. And, that has some local officials questioning why the state wants to apply the same tighter water regulations here as elsewhere.

A new regulation requiring water diversion permit holders to monitor withdrawal beyond what they are currently doing — down to the acre-feet-per minute — is drawing fire from Del Norte County Supervisor Chris Howard and other stakeholders because new monitoring systems could cost thousands of dollars to install.

“Is it really necessary in a community where there has never been a drought?” asked Howard during a recent interview from his office at Alexandre Dairy.

Directive: Mentally ill must be transported by police

Local emergency response officials aren’t happy with a directive from Medicare that has mental patients being transported by police instead of ambulance personnel.

Mental patients in need of transfer from an emergency room to a facility with a higher level of care will now be transported in a police car and not an ambulance, according to Del Norte Ambulance’s General Manager John Pritchett.

Victim/Witness staff balance their stengths

The Del Norte County Victim/Witness Assistance Center, operated by the Del Norte County District Attorney, provides supportive services to victims and witnesses of crime.

California law guarantees employees time to vote

Deadline is today for mail-in voters to request a crossover ballot 

If you do not have enough time to vote during non-work hours, California law provides employees up to two hours off to ensure all voters can vote.

 “Voting is our most fundamental right as American citizens,” said Secretary of State Alex Padilla. “In California your employer cannot deny your right to the ballot box. With the June 7 primary only 12 days away, working Californians should know that they can take time off to vote, without a loss of pay.”

CERT volunteer training starts Friday

The next round of training begins Friday for volunteers willing to help coordinate emergency services in the event of a tsunami or similar disaster in Del Norte County communities.

Training continues through Sunday for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

CVS construction expected to begin

Construction is expected to begin this summer on a new 16,500-square-foot CVS Pharmacy store on the northeast corner of Cooper Avenue and U.S. Highway 101, just north of the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.

Community Development Director Eric Taylor said breaking ground for the store, which was announced in March, was delayed as CVS worked through some issues.

Student STEAM fair this week

The Del Norte County Office of Education is hosting a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Fair on Wednesday through Friday at the Instructional Media Center (IMC), 400 Harding Ave.

Active wildfire season expected

With the continued drought conditions, 2016 is expected to be an active wildfire season. Concentrations of smoke will vary depending upon location, weather, and distance to the fire, according to a press release from North Coast Air Quality.
