Re: “Exploring the Historic Sinkyone Wilderness

Wouldn't that have been something to see: a railroad at Bear Harbor!
The old house, which is now the visitor center, had been a non-host hostel of sorts for some time. One could sleep inside if you reserved a spot.

Re: “God's Lamentation

I'm sorry to be so late to learn of these things. I retired last year, and began to look-up old friends to see how they are doing. I met Nancy at Calvary Chapel of Lake Arrowhead, 1993 to 1995. She led a women's Bible Study, played guitar, and led awesome worship. I heard "The Battle Belongs to the Lord" in one study, for the first time. So beautiful! She also played "We Will Worship the Lamb of Glory."
I kept these two songs in my memory, and thought of her these days as the songs returned to mind.
I'm so grieved by this ending to what seemed like her yellow brick road to happiness, after all the heartache of her childhood.
Nancy ran a child-care in her home in those days. She and Dino lived in Crestline in a rather lovely old house. The day-care was in her home, and thrived. Dino attended Calvary Chapel Bible College, nearby in Twin Peaks near Blue Jay.
I was a Forest Service worker who got disillusioned and came to the Bible College to their open meeting Sunday nights, to hear Pastor Larry Taylor. He had very helpful sharing and I was drawn to attend the school in mid-life. I took the buyout and left government work in 1994.
Nancy shepherded me, or at least drove me around, in those days. She told me there was a terrible accusation against the day-care, which she could not discuss with me, but I knew she was getting counsel from Pastor Tim at church. She had to close the business, and the mortgage went unpaid. She told me Pastor Tim said to let the bank take back the house. I wondered, then what?
In those days, Pastor Chuck Smith was ordaining the young men from Bible college to be pastors. Dino got the church support and they went away.
I had a mom with pneumonia and left the area awhile, and I lost contact.
I know it is forbidden, Biblically, to accuse a Pastor without two or three witnesses. So some crimes have to wait for the victims to grow up, it seems. Did anyone check with the day care moms and kids, grown up and grown older by 2009, from the Crestline days? Did anyone ask Pastor Tim Hamilton what the history was? He had an assistant pastor who did counselling; Brett, I think. There was a female counsellor, too, who led a group for women to talk, just women to women.
Going to counseling was not a sign of mental illness in those days. We were all just people, and people have troubles, so I also sought church leaders and counsellors for wisdom.
Maybe pastoral confidentiality could have been breached, to talk candidly with the counselling staff in Arcata, when a credible witness like Nancy stood up to testify, and a child's safety was involved. Did anyone contact the excellent and honest Bible College pastors and teachers, who knew Dino?
It seems too late, but I noticed something. Dino took a page right out of Nancy's own teen years, in a horrible application of the exact abuse Nancy herself had suffered. It is public record, by the ACLU that helped Nancy's court case as a child. It's online. He betrayed her confidence and repeated upon a her adopted girl the exact same thing that was done to Nancy. And once again, nobody believed Nancy. Why are people so quick to believe the abuser and discount the victims? And they sent Nancy back to submit to her husband? So he could drive the psychological dagger deeper? God help us when our trusted church family is no refuge. At least Ms. Carr of the Baptists believed Nancy. Thank you, Ms. Carr! When he comes up for parole, don't let him go. The crime against the girl might be over, but his crime against that wonderful wife was never even punished. She was a precious gift to him.

Re: “Wildfire Smoke Impacting Local Air Quality

Air quality has certainly not been "good to moderate" on the coast, as the sensors on the PurpleAir network are currently demonstrating. We have been having levels of pollution that numerous studies have linked to serious health effects and even to an increase in the death rate for vulnerable populations. We need an air district that actually stands up for public health! Anywhere else, people would be advised to avoid polluting activities including using wood stoves. Its outrageous.

Re: “#WeWillNotBeErased

Great work with this cover story NCJ. Colin, Aydan, and Carmen are articulate, humane, relatable writers who share their own experiences honestly. It took courage for them to use their voices so publicly, and I have deep respect for their willingness to do so. No one should fear for their safety simply for being who they are. I hope that this story will make some people who have been fearful of trans folks realize these people are members of our community simply living their lives.

Re: “McKinley Statue Debate Making the Media Rounds

People have nothing better to do than to worry about a historic monument that has been in place and not menacing anybody for 113 years? Egad! The rivalry of the white man and native Americans began long before Manifest Destiny was even a concept. My forebears fought Native Americans while protecting their homes in the Shenandoah Valley in the pre-Revolutionary War era in the 18th century. Atrocities were committed equally on both sides. Nobody ever says anything about Indian atrocities.

The concept called Manifest Destiny was not coined until 1845. The country was a split as badly as it is today over Trump by that term. At least half, if not more, of the populous did not believe in it.

By McKinleys time Manifest Destiny had already played out on The North American continent. The US and its three remaining territories, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona, already stretched from sea to shining sea. McKinleys only involvement with Manifest Destiny was with respect to the Philippines and Hawaii, where no Native Americans lived. California had already been a state since 1850. California Native Americans were never put upon by McKinleys advancement of Manifest Destiny.

People today lament the bad card history, namely white men, dealt them. I never hear African-Americans decry the Muslims that bought them into slavery starting in the 7th century AD and which continues to this day in Mauritania and Sudan. They never decry the rich Africans that sold them. People living today did not participate in the deeds of yesterday. You cannot exact reparations from history. There is not enough money in the world to pay back to all that were ever ill-treated by history. Mans inhumanity to man goes back at least 67,000 years. We need to learn from real history and resolve to move on, adjusting our compass accordingly. If we can eradicate mans inhumanity to man, God bless us. Tearing down monuments will not get us to the promised land.

Re: “After Heated Meeting, Planning Commission Sends Zoning Changes to Supes

Chair Robert Morris and commissioner Ben Shepherd had already made up their minds before the public comment began. Noah Levy worked hard to open their minds to the requirements of the public. Morris and Shepherd went on about the 20-year process of the General Plan, ignoring completely the new arrival of the Cannabis zoning just 2 years ago. But logic held no sway with these now out-of-date men, and their irrelevant presence. They believe, it appears, that the matter ends here. The reality is: it is only beginning.
