C.C. man’s ‘Pawn’ interest goes on T.V.

Crescent City veteran Joseph Burrell (second from left) poses with ‘Pawn Star’ stars Rick Harrison, Corey Harrison, Chumlee Russell and ‘Pawnography’ host Christopher Titus. Submitted
Joseph Burrell’s fascination with historical things makes him a regular on eBay and other Internet auction sites and a fan of the History Channel’s show “Pawn Stars.”

Interested primarily in sports and American history, particularly the Civil War era and Victorian period, the 28-year-old disabled veteran wrote “Pawn Stars” producers hoping to be able to sell some of his most prized finds. Burrell didn’t expect to be contacted with the producers of “Pawnography,” a History Channel game show featuring the stars of “Pawn Stars.”

Fishing deaths a reminder as season nears

Four people drowned during a recreational crab outing off the coast of Bodega Bay this weekend, serving as a tragic reminder of the importance of boater safety for this winter’s sport and commercial dungeness crab seasons.

Volunteers removed more than 3,100 pounds of trash from the Smith River National Recreation Area and other parts of the watershed last weekend, and that doesn’t include hundreds of pounds of waste tagged and bagged at an illegal marijuana grow up Patrick Creek Road.

Pounding rain, high winds, large waves and high tide ran emergency personnel ragged on Saturday as they responded to downed trees, sparking power lines and arcing transformers.

The storm, coupled with a high tide, swept large rocks, logs and driftwood onto Anchor Way at the Crescent City Harbor. Cars were driving through sea foam on U.S. Highway 101 south of Crescent City. 

The storm also left much of Del Norte County without power for several hours. According to Paul Vogel, Pacific Power’s vice president of communications, about 10,000 Northern California customers were without power intermittently since the early hours of Saturday morning. 

Code of conduct is not pursued

A proposed code of conduct was not pursued at last week’s Board of Supervisors meeting, seemingly putting an end to, if not the abuse of power accusations, at least the dramatic fallout that has surrounded them since May.

The code of conduct, which Board Chairman David Finigan originally directed staff to research in September, was deemed unnecessary after County Administrative Officer Jay Sarina said the job is taken care of in Rosenburg’s Rules of Order, a set of parliamentary procedure rules designed to guide decision-making bodies.
