If there is anyone in Del Norte who knows the value of amateur radio in an emergency, it’s 91-year-old George Rankins.

Rankins was a member of the Del Norte Amateur Radio Club and ran the amateur radio club at Del Norte High School when the Good Friday tsunami struck in 1964. As soon as he heard the sirens, he flipped on his radio and received this message: “George, you need to get the radio car and get down here.”

He’s been off and on homeless since he was 28. Now that he’s 59, it’s a harder row to hoe. 

He’s a man of few words; a man who mostly likes to keep to himself. Like many who live a nomadic lifestyle, he’s lived in more cities and states than I can fit in my column. They partially include Santa Fe, New Mexico; Port Washington, Wisconsin; Needles, California; and Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was born.

LGBTQ student group taking research trip

A new high school group that focuses on LGBTQ issues will embark on a two-day research trip to San Francisco on Wednesday.

The Del Norte Gender Sexuality Alliance will tour LGBTQ community centers, youth facilities and museums, according to a Gender Talk press release. Its members hope to learn how large urban LGBTQ programs function and how their own alliance can expand and “promote the message of acceptance and equality throughout Del Norte.”

The local Northwest Coast chapter now has memorial monuments in two Brookings locations, including the William James Ward Memorial cemetery and Azalea Park. On June 4, local chapter members attended a memorial gathering at each of the two monument locations.
