City’s grants pile up

$2 million awarded from source that denied county 

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

Barely 24 hours after a City Council discussion about how the city can’t dole out all the money it’s been awarded from its 2010 and 2012 CDBG grants until certain other funds those grants are tied to are spent, it was awarded a new CDBG grant for 2014.

“All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voice and with us sing ... Let all things their Creator bless, and worship him in humbleness.”

A soft chorus of voices rang out under a clear blue sky, the perfect day for an outdoor observation of the Feast of St. Francis with an animal blessing, a long-standing Catholic tradition modeled after St. Francis of Assisi’s teachings that all creatures are truly God’s children. 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.


Public services funding woes

County loses millions relied on for senior center, CASA 

The county was recently denied a multimillion dollar grant it depends on for public infrastructure and service projects.

The $2 million Community Development Block Grant, which the county applies for every year or two, depending on if the previous year’s award was spent, and is regularly awarded, won’t be part of the funds that go toward this year’s projects and services benefitting low- to moderate-income families — what the CDBG grant is designed for.
