The sale of Red’s Showcase Twin Cinemas at 369 G Street was completed Friday when Chetco Federal Credit Union wired its share of the asking price, a $130,000 loan to LRT.

Drilling for a disaster

Plane crash kicks off simulation

Two surfers were the first casualties in a simulated chemical spill that supposedly released toxic nerve agents into the environment and turned Point St. George into a hot zone Thursday.

In addition to the wave riders, there were at least two other simulated deaths in Thursday’s drill, as both the fictional pilot of the plane carrying the deadly cargo and his passenger perished after they crash landed at the Crescent City airport to kick off the event.

“It was a bad surfing day,” Del Norte County Emergency Services Manager Cindy Henderson said with a laugh as she discussed the various “victims” of the exercise.

The simulation — which involved more than 40 agencies and around 200 people — was designed to test the region’s emergency response to a large-scale disaster and expose any weaknesses that might cause problems during such an event.

“We had successes, but we also had some problems,” Henderson said. “But if we had a perfect scenario we wouldn’t learn from this.”

Suspect in home invasions arrested

Police: Klamath man was ‘running amok’

A Klamath man suspected in home invasion robberies was arrested Tuesday in the Tulley Creek housing area near Weitchpec by federal marshals, the Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

Read more...Stanley “Buck” Scott, 24, was arrested on suspicion of involvement in home invasion robberies in Klamath and Orick involving the theft of guns and drugs.

Yurok Tribal Police attempted to apprehend Scott on Jan. 3, but he evaded officers by jumping into the Klamath River, swimming downstream and then hiding in the woods, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Morris said he and 10 other officers and a police dog took to the woods in Klamath that day and found Scott’s trail, but lost him again.

“We called it off because it was verified that he was no longer in Del Norte County,” said Morris. “If we had gotten close enough to him, believe me, we would have used our Tasers.”

Last-minute push on for fishermen, businesses

Harbor deadline coming up the end of this month

Crescent City’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is asking fishermen and harbor district businesses to help the district qualify for a grant to repair the inner basin, dredge and revitalize the harbor.

The deadline for the grant application is Jan. 31, which is causing the SBDC some concern because its still need more documentation.  

“We are in dire need for harbor businesses and fishermen to come forward and support our working harbor,” said SBDC representative Janna Clemons. “People can call day or night, and they should, because this affects us all.”
