The arts council’s performance series will feature unique instruments and songs from China and elsewhere; Delta-style blues; brass music from Mexico; spirituals and folk music from the East Coast and, from the west coast, a sultry chanteuse who sings jazz and blues in the style of Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and others.

 Fall migration is happening now. The season of endless possibilities, you know something good is going to show up, you just don’t know what yet and how many.

Fall migration starts at different periods for different types of birds. For some arctic breeding shorebirds it already started in late June, when the adults started to come through heading south, then in late July the juveniles appeared, and they are still moving through, although the majority is gone. There are a few late species such as the pectoral sandpiper, that come through mainly in late September and October, and some lost migrants might still show up.

Despite excellent conditions at Lake Earl and Tolowa, low water levels and a lot of exposed mud flats, not very many rarities were seen. The most notable one was a juvenile ruff, an Asian shorebird that seems to get lost quite often, as they are quite a regular rarity in California.

Church Notebook: Stuff a shoebox this Christmas season

Are you one of us who love to pack those shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child each fall?

If you are and haven’t started yet this year, it’s definitely time to get busy.

Several of our churches are participating, and those I know of so far are Pelican Bay EV Free, New Life Community, Crescent City Church of the Nazarene and Hiouchi Community. If I’ve left you out, please let me know.
