Hendrickson deal is lunacy; can't wait to see his next episode
The plea deal of 19-year-old Samuel C. Hendrickson ("68 days for death of his mother," May 21) is the stuff of legal lunacy.
I can't wait for his next episode. I'll bet it's a real doozy.
State's redistricting committee should re-align our Senate dist.
Well aware of the gerrymandering history of our state, I hold great
hope for the redistricting committee. For example, our present state
Senate district is represented by a man from Grass Valley, an area
totally unlike ours in culture, history or economy. I know that the
committee isn't going to hold meetings in this far corner of the state
so I thought I would make my feelings known.
I believe that, almost to a person, our local community would say
that what defines us is our connection to the sea. Almost the entire
population lives in a narrow strip of land along the coast. As such, we
have a natural affinity with the other Northern California coastal
counties. It is important to us that we be placed in districts that
include the other Northern California coastal counties, namely Humboldt
We share with these counties not only a rural and sometimes remote
way of life, but also the shared hardships brought on by the decline of
fisheries and the timber industry. I am aware that some compromises will
have to be made, but please don't consider splitting us away from the
other coastal counties.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if you have any
questions, or desire any other input, do not hesitate to contact me.
