Corporate big box stores are creating more empty storefronts

Per the recent announcements of corporate chains building new stores in the community, I believe that this big-box type of economic development creates more empty storefronts and siphons profits out of the community. 

How many pharmacies/drugstores are enough? The new CVS will be within a few blocks of Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Safeway’s in-house pharmacy; with Walmart’s in-house not far away. 


Another View: Moon Tribe brings new connectivity to Del Norte

Clouds drift across the moon as a hundred voices howl in homage, welcome to the Moon Tribe Social Circle, the new scene in Crescent City. Founded by Tara Bella, a new resident in the area as a way to meet people in her new home, it has now turned into a grassroots movement of community connections. 

Family friendly meetings have ranged from beach parties with crafts and games, to skill sharing such as soap making or spinning poi, to poetry readings and music circles.

Triplicate story on CDBG way off base

My journalism professors at HSU enforced fact-checking by giving an “F” for any misspelled names and/or fact errors in our news articles. Your story on the front page of Thursday’s Triplicate, “City wants bulk of grant to go to pool, not RHS” is totally misleading and full of errors.


Our View: Make your vote count in vital DN election

Pick a candidate. Any candidate. But by all means, cast a ballot in today’s primary election.

This election may be the most important facing Del Norte County in many years. The slumbering economy is slowly reawakening. Real estate sales are on the rise. New business is poised to arrive or open doors soon.

Taking on the unknown like a sea lion does

Last week veteran Brave Dave and I agreed facing the unknown is probably the most difficult task expected of a soldier or civilian.

As Dave and I were pondering the particular unknowns soldiers and civilians might expect, we both noticed how one of the glistening black boulders just left of Castle Rock was coming towards us in a slow circling pattern.

Remove dandelions, gophers will follow

I am writing in reference to Heidi Graham’s article entitled “A Holey Mess.”

My wife Doris and I moved to Crescent City in 2003. It didn’t take long to realize that we had a gopher problem on our property, which is just outside of the city limits.

Sign of irresponsible gun ownership

An oxymoron — responsible gun ownership. The recently-published photo (May 26) of the sign, “CAUTION CHILDREN AT PLAY” riddled by bullets reminded me of innumerable highway and information signs, and campground trash containers throughout the west that attest to the compulsive (and/or drunk or high) behavior of gun owners whose idea of having a gun seems to be — I must use it and shoot at something/anything.

Vet housing vouchers here due to McClure

I am writing in response to the homeless vet letter of May 21. The writer had borrowed a trailer to live on his property while he built his house. He was able to borrow a trailer because family knew someone with a trailer. It sounded like he disliked the trailer and didn’t understand why Martha McClure referred him to other services, rather than helping him personally since he was temporarily homeless.


Coastal Voices: Change not always good: Political contacts take time to cultivate

I have been involved in politics in Del Norte County for over 50 years. I always get amused by people running for public offices contending that “Change is Good.” I do not necessarily agree.
