Dear Editor: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that in 2017, more people in the U.S. died by suicide than in any previous year.
Our recently-hired reporters in Crescent City and Brookings are now hitting their stride, providing increasingly relevant coverage of the activities and residents in Country Media’s two new communities. Your ongoing positive feedback underscores that.
Homelessness is a symptom of a number of complex problems. That is why it is so hard to address. I can think of seven, which tend to be interrelated.
Dear Editor: Thanks for the articles on the salmon season. I heard it was good fishing up north of Coos Bay, as well as central California. For some reason, the forage fish (salmon food) were at very low abundance from Coos Bay to Point Arena this year.
Dear Editor: As a new resident to the north coast, having moved here just under a year ago, I am enchanted with the rugged beauty and the weather. It sure beats the 100-degree days in the Sacramento Valley.
Dear Editor: I would like to provide clarification on two issues that were mentioned in your article, “A permanent fix for Highway 101 slide is now delayed” (Sept. 4).
Dear Editor: On the Sunday afternoon before Labor Day, I was on my daily walk with my little dog down Howe Drive by Beachfront Park. I was just approaching the path behind the sewer plant when a young man came up behind me and said, “I’ll walk through here with you.”
Dear Editor: Let’s look at the homeless problem we are having. They’re sleeping in our backyards and in our parks. The county needs to look at the problem. Ignoring it doesn’t help.
Dear Editor: While I am all for promoting the fair, I am amazed your writer could conclude Mr. Crook is the best without checking with the fair staff.
Dear Editor: No disrespect or sarcasm is intended in this response to The Triplicate’s Aug. 17 headline, “County officials are perplexed by traffic court no-shows.”
Dear Editor: As a long-time Triplicate subscriber and a founding board member of the Lighthouse Repertory Theatre 41 years ago (1978), I was offended that you titled our theatre group “Lighthouse Repository Theatre,” not once but twice.
… Time for us all to be more watchful as we drive through town, because there will be lots of kids present in the streets with the new school year. Excited at seeing friends they may have not seen for those weeks of summer vacation, they could well not be paying attention to traffic like the…
Dear Editor: This goes to the gentleman who helped me out at Grocery Outlet. I was standing in line with my groceries, getting ready to pay with my brand-new “EBT” card. Just as I was paying for my food, my “EBT” card would not work. After many tries, with a new, fully loaded card, my card w…
Dear Editor: First, I would just like to say how much fun it has been watching this newspaper come alive over the last few weeks. I am enjoying the stories, layout, fonts, photographs and all the colors. Thank you all so much! Your hard work shows.
Dear Editor: While I greatly appreciate the effort that Mr. Creager made in the July 27 Triplicate, “It’s the reservoirs that promote algae,” he goes on to create the scenario that if the four Klamath River Dams are removed, it will solve all of the river’s problems.
Dear Editor: As a subscriber to both the Curry Coastal Pilot and The Del Norte Triplicate, I have watched recent issues with interest. Although readers were jolted by changes following the sudden ownership transition, I think the papers are improving with each edition over the past few weeks.
Dear Editor, as a senior environmental scientist and environmental program manager for the California Regional Water Quality Control Board’s North Coast Region, I’ve spent more than a decade of my career studying, developing and implementing pollutant-control and ecological restoration progr…
It’s not hard to explain the value of quality in healthcare. High-quality care improves outcomes, changes lives – and often saves them.
There will be tomatoes and peppers ready in the hothouse soon, and I can hardly wait. One of my favorite sandwiches is just sliced tomatoes with mayo and a slight sprinkle of salt, on any variety of bread.
Earlier this week, one of our reporters was asked by a news source if Country Media would be shutting down The Triplicate and/or The Pilot. In response, he wondered aloud to her, “Why would the new owners spend all of that money just to close the doors?”
When learning a new task as a youngster, it could be frustrating and seemingly impossible. But my mom would remind me that as long as I was taking two steps forward and only one back, I was making progress.
Walking. It’s great to walk and talk with a friend. Sometimes I walk alone and often find that I’m singing hymns to myself. Several months ago I was having trouble walking with pain in my hip, and getting worse, and wondered if eventually I wouldn’t be able to walk anymore. Hymn 139 from the…
The Fairy Godmothers would like to extend a huge and heartfelt thank you to the entire Crescent City community for their help in making The Fairy Godmother Boutique a success this year.
In regards to Sarah Menkedicks column “Time to take aim at male entitlement by saying no” I have to say it’s the first time in a while that something I read in the Triplicate boiled my blood.
Last week, a very tall, handsome, athletic looking man with blue eyes, burst through the front door of the Triplicate newspaper and said to the two older ladies working the front desk, “That article Sucks!” He left promptly. We had no idea what he was talking about.
I recently attended a sporting event at our local high school. The restrooms at our high school football field are terrible. It really does not represent our school or players well. Especially when opposing teams have to use the facilities.
It has been 1.25 yrs. since I retired after 10 years of working for the Del Norte Triplicate and 35 years working for the newspaper industry overall. It was in its heyday when I first started. The internet was just beginning to take off, so it hadn’t had the chance to have much of an effect …
Many folks have contacted me and asked me what is my solution in addressing the so-called homeless conditions in Del Norte County. Stating many times, I believe there can be no solution until services are mandatory and compulsory. Simply stated, one cannot live out in the bushes; it is dange…
Jon Alexander of “Angels and Desperados” fame recently noted that among all the negativity we see around us, there are two places that shine in Del Norte: the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center and the dog pound. These are special places because of the volunteers that work and financially suppo…
Spend years coaxing your body into impossible contortions, running miles, doing as many pushups, sit-ups, and burpees as any other athletic team, while memorizing complicated dance routines, dangerous gravity-defying stunts, dozens of cheers, and you know, throw in some back flips for good m…
Prop. 64 passed by 57 percent of the vote in 2016, and two-thirds of the counties of California voted in favor of the measure. Yet, an estimated 80 percent of the cities and counties in our state have not licensed cannabis businesses, leaving many, including seriously ill patients, without s…
