at annual holiday celebration 

Volunteers have been hard at work this week scouring the main hall at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds to get it ready for Thanksgiving.

Volunteers will fire up the kitchen at 7 a.m. today to get all the sides prepared by show time at noon. The star of the community Thanksgiving dinner will be the 40 turkeys that were donated by Cholwell, Benz and Hartwick, ordered by Northwoods Restaurant and roasted at various locations throughout town.

Federal audit questions tribe’s use of grants

An audit from the U.S. Department of Justice’s solicitor general released this month questions $112,123 in federal grant funding used by the Yurok Tribe’s Hoe-Kue-Moh Corporation, a nonprofit organization providing legal services for tribal members.

The audit also says that required financial and progress reports submitted by Hoe-Kue-Moh contained discrepancies. Hoe-Kue-Moh has since implemented policies and procedures that address and will avoid future discrepancies found by the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General, according to the audit.

More than 40 decorated Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes stood at the perimeter of the main building at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

Teddy bears and stuffed animals hid in the eaves of some trees; others had toy trains chugging away underneath and shiny baubles hanging from their boughs. 

Grassroots effort to beautify Redwood School

Hand-drawn plans detail the Redwood Curb Appeal project. Submitted
Sixty-five years ago, Susan Taylor’s grandfather donated the land Redwood School was built on. Now, the retired teacher is teaming up with the school district, teachers and parents to beautify the elementary school’s entryway.

“I went to all of the different campuses of the town schools and I thought, ‘Wow, I’m impressed,’” Taylor said. “I went to Redwood ... it looked like an abandoned old building. It looked like nobody cared. I thought, ‘I’m retired; I have the time. I need to do something about it.’”
