Triplicate, Pilot want to hear about your holiday traditions

Share your favorite happy holiday tradition, recipe, memory or photo — and it might be published in the Del Norte Triplicate and Curry Coastal Pilot.

It’s the time of year some churches hold holiday bazaars

There’s an old saying about “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”..... but I think it can better be said that “something you don’t need anymore, but is still in great shape, can be just what someone else needs.”

Making a stand

 Paul Madeira surveyed the progress of his new farmstand. 

With two days left until the grand opening, his interns sawed wood and hammered siding into place pausing only to receive direction from their boss.

“We’ve been doing construction for five weeks,” Madeira said Thursday. “We envisioned it taking two months, but then we couldn’t really start it until five weeks before we wanted to open it.”

LRT: Sordid Lives

 At first glance, the deceased appears to have been a respectable God-fearing woman, but the circumstances surrounding her death have plunged this small Texas town into chaos.

“She tripped over a pair of wooden legs in a seedy hotel room and bled to death while her lover was passed out on the bed,” said Kurt Kurtis, director of Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s fall production “Sordid Lives.” “It reminds you of ‘Mama’s Family’ and ‘Steel Magnolias’ meets ‘Jerry Springer.’”

DNACA: ‘Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom’

Philadelphia-born Kim and Reggie Harris bring their “Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom” to Crescent City next Friday.
 Next Friday, Nov. 13, the Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness presents the second performance of its 33rd season, featuring Kim and Reggie Harris in a program of “Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom.”

Holiday events: Taste of Holidays

The Redwood Parks Association has run out of tickets for its annual Candlelight Walk.  

As folks put away their jack-o-lanterns and start planning their Thanksgiving menus, they should leave room in their schedule for a plethora of community events celebrating the holidays.

One event, Del Norte Sunrise Rotary’s Taste of the Holidays, will be held Saturday at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds. And tickets are going fast — possibly selling out by today — for another event, the Redwood Parks Association’s annual candlelight walk held at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park in December.

Firefighting volunteer for five decades

Janice Wyatt, a 49-year-Gasquet resident, was a volunteer firefighter in the 1960s and 1970s, has spent time as a fire lookout, including when the Biscuit Fire started, and she aided wildfire suppression efforts this year at Gasquet Airport. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
 Janice Wyatt gave an enthusiastic yes when her boss asked if she would help with the Gasquet Complex Fires.

But using a clicker to count folks on their way to dinner wasn’t what she had in mind.

“I was just bored to death,” she said. “My boss says ‘You’re not very happy are you?’ And I said, ‘No, I want to do something.’”

Halloween fun

 Adults and kids both got into the Halloween spirit Saturday, some donning black pointy hats while others impersonated their favorite video game or movie characters. With both the Family Resource Center and Del Norte County Library hosting spooky activities, there was no shortage of fun things to do.

Farmers Market's final weekend

 Dean Davis owns Promiseland Farm, seen on Saturday weighing a head of Napa cabbage Saturday for Crescent City resident Linda Spliethof at the Crescent City Farmers Market. Spliethof and many other Del Norters turned out despite cooler temperatures and other Halloween activities to make their final purchases of the season. 

Davis is one of two Oregon vendors who sell their produce at the Crescent City Farmers Market. Hailing from Sunny Valley on Interstate 5 north of Grants Pass, Davis said he drives 100 miles to bring his veggies to Crescent City. 

Even though things were low key Saturday, the number of vendors and patrons at the Crescent City Farmers Market has grown this year. According to Ron Phillips, special projects coordinator for Rural Human Services, before Labor Day between 65 and 75 vendors plied their wares at the market. During the summer, roughly 300 people an hour did their shopping at the market.

Storied, long life of Dave Stewart

His clear, light green eyes have seen so much. The Great Depression; the concentration camps of Buchenwald and Belsen; the 1964 flood of Crescent City, and the growth of his three children.
