Businesses form crime watch

Local businesses are working with each other and law enforcement to keep track of suspicious activity downtown.

The Business Improvement District has put the finishing touches on its new neighborhood watch group, which board member Cheryl Corpstein said has been in the works since spring. The group, which asked the City Council this week for permission to post signs at various locations around downtown, aims to keep its members aware of crime events in the area via a phone tree and also to meet regularly with law enforcement in regard to current levels of criminal activity.

Controlled burns may begin soon

California State Parks firefighters watch a prescribed burn in Del Norte County. Several controlled burns on public lands are planned to begin as early as this weekend. Submitted
Although some monstrous wildfires in the region like the Happy Camp Complex continue to smolder, 2014 has transitioned from unplanned wildfires in hot and dry summer conditions to prescribed fall burning on lands managed by federal and state agencies.


Prescribed burns by Redwood National and State Parks and Six Rivers National Forest could start as early as this weekend. Land managers have to seize the narrow fall window when conditions are dry enough to burn, but not so dry that state and federal firefighters need to be available to battle blazes elsewhere in the region.

City’s grants pile up

Crescent City is being awarded grants faster than it can spend them.

On Saturday afternoon, spiritual leaders from three denominations led a group of the faithful in giving thanks to God for the animals that bless human lives in so many ways.
