Work on science lab at CR to begin

Groundbreaking ceremony will be held next week

College of the Redwoods trustees will be in town next week, just in time to catch contractors breaking ground on the new science labs.

“The trustees hold a meeting up there once a year, and it so happens that the groundbreaking is on the same day. It’s a happy coincidence — it just worked out that way,” said Kimberly Sweet, the interim executive assistant to the president’s office.

The $1.5 million state-of-the-art labs will bring chemistry courses onto the Del Norte campus in Crescent City by spring of 2017, and hopefully encourage students who might feel compelled to study in Eureka to stick around for their associate’s degree.

Sinkhole repairs far from finished

Deep breaths, people.

It’s probably going to be another month before work is complete on the culvert repair on U.S. 101 in Harbor and drivers can smoothly travel through the area.

Until then, drivers will have to continue using the detour over the gravelled Shopping Center Avenue between Zimmerman and Hoffeldt lanes.

New sidewalks, curbs and driveways won’t be done until mid-summer.

Textile recycling will be offered beginning in July

Come July, Del Norters will have a place to take their unwanted clothes and shoes that are perhaps a little too worn for resale at a second hand shop.

Textile recycling will be offered by Hambro / WSG as part of the extended contract currently being negotiated with the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority to continue hauling area trash to the Dry Creek Landfill near Medford, Oregon.

“I’m thinking it’s going to be clothing and linens and shoes and that’s probably about it,” said Hambro Group CEO Wes White, stressing that a vendor hadn’t yet been selected, so it wasn’t possible to say exactly how the service would work.

Office generates $12.5M for local vets

Del Norte County Veterans Service Officer Aaron Goodwin and his staff are concentrating on bringing awareness to more veterans about the services available to them.

Nothing breaks his heart more than meeting a veteran who has no idea there is help available, Goodwin told the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors at their March 22 session.

Goodwin, 31, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and currently serving in the Army Reserve, took over the position Jan. 15, replacing Christopher Thorpe.

Rush in custody through illness

A hearing in Del Norte Superior Court for alleged con-woman Shirley Rush, 65, was postponed Monday after another last-minute medical event sent the suspect to the emergency room.

Shortly before 10 a.m. on March 28, Rush’s defense attorney Rebecca Linkous told Judge Darren McElfresh her client could not appear for her court appearance that day as she had been transported from Del Norte County Jail to Sutter Coast Hospital earlier in the morning.

McElfresh confirmed with Linkous that Rush was still in custody of the Del Norte Sheriff’s Office while being treated at the hospital and agreed to postpone her setting until the following day.

Crescent City Cyclists attend IMBA trail building seminar

Locals hope to bring lessons home for trail system

Plans for a mountain bike trail system in Del Norte County from the mountains to the sea continue to move forward as several members of a newly-created mountain bike club Crescent City Cyclists rolled north last Saturday to Agness, Oregon.

The occasion was a trail building seminar put on by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) and hosted by the Wild Rivers Bike Association in Gold Beach.

IMBA Trail Care Crew leaders Jordan Carr and Lani Bruntz facilitated the all day event held in the Agnes Community Center.

Editor's note: We asked Father Gregory Villaescusa of St. Joseph Catholic Church to share his Easter sermon with Triplicate readers.

This is the first question the Mah Nistana of the Haggadah, required of the youngest child to be asked at a Passover. The Avadim Hayinu response summarizes the entire reason for the meal:

Slaves were we to Pharaoh in Egypt,

and (or but) the Lord our God brought us out

from there with a mighty hand

Caltrans minimizes harm of 101 collapse

Last Chance Grade failure wouldn't cut off DN from south for long, official says

Even if Del Norters’ worst fears regarding Last Chance Grade were realized, Caltrans’ Sebastian Cohen assured them Crescent City wouldn’t be cut off from Klamath for long.

Cohen, project manager for Last Chance Grade, told Del Norte County residents at a town hall meeting Wednesday that a large and a moderate-scale slip out of the slide-prone stretch of U.S. Highway 101 has not happened, but if it does, the agency would “put whatever road we needed to to get traffic through.”

“This area is not going to be cut off long term from access,” Cohen said. “It could be that it’s a couple weeks, it could be a month, who knows, there will always be something there that we can cut back to and get it open.”
