Reporter's Notebook: Visiting team’s mascot stirs controversy at Jaycees tourney

Although most attendees of the Crescent City Jaycees Tournament last weekend reported having a great time, at least one of the fans was less than pleased with one opponent’s mascot.

In the first round of the tournament, Hoopa, a school with a large Native American population, played the West Cottonwood Chieftains.

Hoopa supporter Tayshu Bommelyn vocalised her displeasure at the West Cottonwood mascot via social media later that night.

Sheriff discusses week’s manhunt at community crime-prevention meeting 

Some 20 people showed up at a Smith River Neighborhood Watch meeting Wednesday evening, where much of the discussion revolved around a recent manhunt.

“We had some pretty exciting things happen over the last couple of days,” neighborhood watch coordinator Joni Forsht said to get the ball rolling. 


Lawsuit alleges neglect of patient

An ambulance took Donna Reichlin to Sutter Coast Hospital on April 21, 2014. 

The infection in her legs was far gone by then. Her heels and calves were covered in “very foul smelling” and “longstanding” bedsores, described in clinical detail by the doctors who treated her that day, one of whom requested that a social worker from Adult Protective Services evaluate the case. 

Donna Reichlin died two weeks later, at age 67. The immediate cause, according to her death certificate, was sepsis, an immune system failure triggered by infection. 


Crosswalk installation a big step for safety

A new installation on the north end of town should mean safe crossings for pedestrians over a historically risky stretch of highway. 

The first of its kind in the district, in a couple weeks the High Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) will have motorists come to a complete stop as dictated by a pedestrian’s push of a button. Then the mast arms that flash red and yellow over U.S. Highway 101 will bridge the Shangri-La Trailer Park and Alisa’s Custom Coffee to the Patriot Service Station and Big 5 Sporting Goods for people afoot. 


Cabins come to area campgrounds

Rustic cabins will soon be installed at popular campgrounds within Redwood State and National Parks.

Four prefabricated, 13-foot by 27-foot structures are going in at Jedediah Smith, Prairie Creek and Patrick’s Point campgrounds, according to parks officials.

Dirt work to level the sites is already underway, while the project completion date is scheduled for June.

Break in C.C. flights nears

Soon-to-be-grounded local passengers will need to find another means of travel for the spring and summer, as the last scheduled flight out of Crescent City is set for April 6. 

A quick search for flights April 7 and onward brings up naught: “We’ve searched more than 400 airlines that we sell, and couldn’t find any flights from Crescent City ... (to) San Francisco,”  travelocity.com states when prompted, going on to suggest “adjust(ing) your arrival or departure to a nearby airport.”

And that may be sound advice. Despite some optimism shown by local airport officials who had hoped that the right amount of coaxing and political pressure might extend the stay of SkyWest, the airport’s only commercial carrier, the airline has not budged on its plan to depart for good in early April.

Dustin Weber
Four years ago Dustin Weber was looking forward to a quiet life above the Klamath River.

The 25-year-old Yurok native, who grew up in Bend, Ore., had spent a month with his father, Jon Weber, refurbishing a house on 20 acres of land overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Weber’s grandmother had given the house and land to her grandson, who had hoped to get a job fishing on the Klamath.

“We just got a new roof put in,” Jon Weber said. “It was beautiful inside. He wanted a place for his friends to come visit and us to come visit — a little independence.”


Judge expands inmates’ fed. lawsuit

OAKLAND — A federal judge expanded a lawsuit filed by inmates being held in isolation at Pelican Bay State Prison to include prisoners who transferred to another prison.

The judge ruled Tuesday that inmates who spent more than 10 years in the prison’s security housing units but are now held in similar conditions in California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi in Southern California are now covered by the lawsuit, which was originally filed in September 2012 by the Center for Constitutional Rights on behalf of 10 Pelican Bay inmates.
