Richard Brooks huddled closer to the burning alder logs, grateful for the warmth they provided on a chilly Saturday morning.

He had started the fire for sand bread at 5 a.m., two hours before food and artisan vendors began setting up for Smith River Rancheria’s Dee-ni’ Day. But he began preparing a key ingredient the day before.


State coast commission pays a visit

Officials to tour local sites for projects needing approval 

For most of the state, the California Coastal Commission acts as a mediator for 38 million Californians elbowing for their fair share of coastal access. But in far northern California, where beach access is abundant, many often paint the regulatory agency as an overzealous, bureaucratic barrier to much-needed economic development.

To better grasp how Del Norte differs from far-flung, heavily-populated coastlines to the south, the commission will be holding its monthly multi-day meeting in Smith River this week and taking a tour of project sites in Del Norte County in need of the regulatory agency’s approval.


‘Strategic plan’ on Waste Board agenda for Wednesday

The embattled Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority will consider pursuing a strategic plan to guide the future of the agency that manages the county’s trash and recycling during a 3:30 p.m. meeting Wednesday in the Flynn Center, 981 H St.

During a “strategic planning” meeting in August, the authority board realized that drafting a strategic plan was not a task that was going to be accomplished in an afternoon, and Wednesday’s meeting will address how the board plans to develop such a plan.

The candidates include incumbent Don McArthur and challenger Milton Reilley for Area 1; incumbent Lori Cowan and challenger Angela Greenough for Area 2 and Jamie Forkner, Verona “Ronnie” Sorensen, Beth Green and Janet Wortman for Area 5.

Old harbor wastewater treatment plant, now defunct, is demolished 

Crescent City Harbor District got out of the wastewater treatment business in 2011 when it shut down its plant and started pumping its fish processing waste to the newly opened Crescent City Wastewater Treatment Plant, but that did not absolve the district from fines it had racked up with state water quality regulators.

Instead of paying standing fines from the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board, the harbor district agreed to dismantle the defunct wastewater treatment plant, an action that has been ongoing since last week.
