After years of waiting and political hassle, thank goodness we have an Emergency Department (ED) at Curry Medical Center (CMC) in Brookings! On Friday, Feb. 21 at about 4 a.m. I suffered a broken arm at home and:

Editor, Thank you for continuing to publicize SWOCC and Beyond events in the Community Calendar. We’ve had a wonderful winter term and I’d like to give a shout out to some amazing presenters: Chris Eberhardt, Tara Devi, Cameron Rauenhorst, Ardy Kellie, Judith Lidgus, Brandon Hodges, Joseph T…

Editor, Look, here’s the deal. The coronavirus is not the plague and we’re not all going to die, at least not yet. More people will die from more causes than the coronavirus will ever touch.

Dear Editor, What are boys less likely to do than girls? Boys have been brought up in a culture to stuff feelings. Big boys don't cry. Handle it. Don't ask for help. Man up. And the messages go on.

Dear Editor: I’m writing to express my thanks to Judith Lidgus, who gave last Tuesday’s talk in SWOCC and Beyond’s weekly Community Speakers series.

Dear Editor, Our community does not have the capability, resources, capacity or moral obligation to solve the “homeless” problem, especially when many are transient transplants from outside of Curry County.

Often when the calendar flips over to a “New Year,” people find themselves making New Year’s resolutions. And, by now, people are looking back to see how many resolutions they’ve been able to keep. For many, this looks like items affecting diet, exercise, altering habits. These resolutions a…

Dear Editor: I got a genuine chuckle out of the letter whose author had so wholeheartedly swallowed President Donald J. Trump’s delusional self-comparison to the innocents condemned at the Salem witch trials three and a quarter centuries ago.

Most people aren’t comfortable talking about this. They feel that to have feelings other than benevolence for the homeless, as they are called, is somehow cruel or meanspirited.

Dear Editor: Has anybody noticed the Democrats could only provide political hacks like Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to make their case for removing President Donald J. Trump from office?

Dear Editor: The impeachment of President Donald Trump reminds me of the Salem witch trials where bad men sent good women to the stake to burn. These were beautiful women who were gifted.

Dear Editor: The front page of The Pilot (Jan. 21 edition) had the headline, "Women Rally for Unity." The article then goes on to describe how the Women's March was started, after President Trump was elected, as a protest against him. 

There’s a show on television called “The Purge.” Don’t watch it. (Now you will.)

A few weeks ago, our entire team at The Pilot had the opportunity to volunteer one evening at the annual Festival of Lights event. This was my first experience with this dazzling event - and I was in for a huge treat.

SWOCC Curry campus’ Dr. Doug Bunn misspoke, by saying the college district is under attack, during the Chetco Library Special District follow-up meeting on Monday. 

The teachers of Del Norte have been struggling to get a fair contract for nine months. As of right now, the school board and the teachers are still in gridlock over negotiations.

I found it interesting that the unpleasant letter in the Dec. 10 issue of The Pilot expressing resentment over the term “holiday tree” called out one particular non-Christian religion, amongst all others, for perhaps pushing that particular term.

The population explosion of voracious purple sea urchins along the Oregon and California coasts (The Pilot, Nov. 19) threatens our lucrative abalone and rockfish fisheries and their kelp forest habitats.

Hospice began serving Curry County in 1995. Over the years, Coastal Home Health & Hospice has been an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to those coping with a terminal illness, as well as support for their families.

This is the fourth year I have had the pleasure of writing this letter in support of the Brookings-Harbor Education Foundation. Once again, they are funding awards for first-, second-, and third-place winners in our Oregon Battle of the Books competition. 

Due to building damage which happen last month, there will not be any services on Veterans Day. There will be no off site service sponsored by VFW Post #996.

I want to thank Julie Schmelzer and our three commissioners for their support in establishing the Suicide Awareness and Prevention Council, to see what is possible to reduce the number of suicides and attempts in Curry County.

When I heard that a 16-year-old Scandinavian girl was crossing the ocean in a sailboat to speak at the United Nations Climate Summit, my first thought was, “Who is this girl?” My second thought: “It must be Greta Thunberg!”

You buckle up when you get in your vehicle. Make sure your pet is just as safe.

The Daughters of the American Revolution has partnered with the United States Department of Defense to thank and honor veterans of the Vietnam War for their service and sacrifice on behalf of the United States.

When we purchased the Del Norte Triplicate and the Curry Coastal Pilot on July 1, I hit the decks running. Making decisions like crazy, many of which had been long delayed.
