Bomb squad called to assess ‘device’

Police: Explosive found in park waste 

A maintenance worker with Redwood National and State Parks found an unusual device at the park’s North Operations Center while sorting through trash and recyclables that were collected from the site of an illegal dump off of Old Mill Road on Monday morning.

The device was identified as an explosive, said Redwood National and State Parks Chief Ranger Marshall Neeck. Aubell Lane, which serves as the entrance to North Operations, was immediately closed off as a safety precaution for the remainder of the day, Neeck said. 

Correction: Rate increase not tied to sewer loan

The Tuesday, Nov. 25, article titled “State OK with change to loan” contained inaccuracies. The state’s approval of a graduated repayment plan and a zero percent interest rate for Crescent City’s $44 million wastewater treatment plant loan was not contingent upon a proposed 5 percent annual rate increase between July 2015 and July 2019.

According to City Manager Eugene Palazzo, the rate increase coupled with the recent changes to the city’s loan will help stabilize Crescent City’s sewer fund. The state Water Resources Control Board recently found that the city’s sewer fund is insufficient to cover its expenses and cannot be supported by the city’s general fund, according to the state’s Nov. 18 staff report.

Del Norters come together like family to cook, serve, feast — and give thanks 

The fairgrounds boomed Thursday as folks lined up for turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes, but Beulah Smith and her daughters JoAnne Smith and Dianne Ellis-Smith ignored the noise for a few moments.

The three women joined hands and brought their heads together in quiet blessing — their own family tradition — before digging into their Thanksgiving feast.

High price, low volume for crabs

Race to set pots dampened by rough seas, expectations 

Many commercial Dungeness crab fishermen in Northern California, Oregon and Washington started setting crab traps Friday, and when they started unloaded their catch as the season opened on Monday it was to a record-high opening price of $3.10 per pound.

The opening price agreement was reached at the annual Oregon state-supervised meeting between seafood processors and fishermen hosted by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Since the largest seafood buyer in Oregon, Pacific Seafood, is also the largest buyer in California, the Northern California fleet will get paid the same opening price.

Travelers bond during detour

Flight canceled, six strangers drive to C.C.

The flight was fully booked with many similarly-intentioned folks looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with loved ones.
