As an outdoorsman who moved here three years ago to work for the newspaper, the Outdoor Writers Association of California gig held here during the past week was right up my alley.

Having started Redwood Rides, a local kayak and bike tour guide service with a longtime friend from Minnesota this summer, I was even equipped to show the writers myself what convinced me to stick around America’s Wild Rivers Coast past my soon-to-end Triplicate days.

Volunteers statewide will fan out across California’s beaches, shorelines and inland waterways Saturday to clear away the debris that has accumulated over the past year.

But Del Norte County students are getting a head start on Friday. They’ll work on Saturday and next weekend too, said Crescent Elk Middle School teacher Joe Gillespie, who has coordinated the local California Coastal Cleanup effort for more than 20 years.

Local music fest is Saturday

Three regional bands will perform a mix of blues, rock, jazz, swing, funk and a little bluegrass during Stagelights’ outdoor Community Music Showcase on Saturday, Sept. 20.

The free three-hour concert, from 1-4 p.m., is set in the idyllic grass amphitheater on private property about a mile up Cape Ferrelo Drive off Highway 101, 6 miles north of Brookings.

Poet’s trials inspire work

Third-generation Japanese American poet Lawson Fusao Inada was born in Fresno, where his grandparents founded the Fresno Fish Market, his father was a dentist and his mother held a college degree in teaching.

“When I was a little kid — I had just turned 4 — we moved into the county fairgrounds,” Inada said in a recent interview. “We were there for several months — they built barracks at the fairgrounds — and then were moved by train to a camp in a swampy area in Arkansas.”
