Comedic twist on classic

Students put on ‘The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet’ April 17–18 at DNHS 

It’s a story that has been heard hundreds of times: A boy and a girl from two feuding families become star-crossed lovers.

But next week Del Norte High School Theater Production will turn Shakespeare’s famous tragedy on its head, giving it a comedic twist that would make Dr. Seuss proud. “The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet” by Peter Bloedel will open to theater-goers of all ages next week.

“We wanted something that was fun. Something that was different,” said Arielle Fuller, a senior who plays Juliet’s mother. “It’s very funny. You think of Romeo and Juliet and you think of a tragedy. (But) it’s a different way of looking at the story.”

Del Norte People: Brother’s ‘Star Trek’ films part of history

I would like to share a story about a special person in my life, my older brother Billy Blackburn. If you have read my book “Kneebockers,” you will know that I left my mother Laura and my two brothers Billy and Wes Jr. to go out west to Reno, Nev., in 1946 at 10 years old. My younger brother Wes actually joined Dad and I in the early ’50s for about a year or so. It was close to 25 years that I hadn’t seen Mom or Billy.

In later years I had the opportunity to rebuild a relationship with Mom and Billy in North Hollywood. They both lived in an apartment complex in separate quarters. The first trip I took to North Hollywood, I met Billy at the May Company’s ice skating rink. As a young man, Billy actually skated in the Holiday on Ice show and then the Icecapades for a period of years.

Child abuse victim shares story during candlelight vigil focused on awareness

Frigid winds blew candles out as Melissa Banks tearfully recounted the abuse she suffered at the hands of her adoptive parents.

Banks shared her story at the annual Children’s Memorial Flag raising at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Wednesday. 

She spoke about the insults, kicks and slaps her adoptive mother doled out and about the broken nose her mother gave her. She described how her adoptive father once picked her up and threw her onto a hardwood floor and how he later took his abuse to a worse level. This went on for three years, she said, until she finally had enough.

Church Notebook: Christians can look forward to Christ’s promised return

I have a neat little sticker on one of my truck windows. In a 3 by 6-inch space, it completely outlines the life of Christ in a nutshell: “He came, He died, He arose, He ascended, He’s coming back.”

As we have not so long ago celebrated Christmas and his arrival, now we are about to celebrate Easter, the remembrance of his crucifixion and resurrection.

Sometimes it seems like we pay more attention to the goodies and giving of gifts, family and big dinners, than we do to Him.

Relive rail's golden days in tour

“My memory goes back to a time when if you wanted to go any distance, you (had) to get on a train,” said model train enthusist John Haines, top. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
The wail of a train whistle may be a sound of the past on the North Coast, but not for Don Cure, John Haines and a handful of other Del Norters.

Visitors to Cure’s home at Crescent City Senior Estates can hear the clickity-clack of cars riding the rails and, if they’re lucky, see steam billowing from an Accucraft Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge engine.

Another train, which runs on electricity, bears the name “Mill Creek Lumber” on its caboose. Mill Creek was once a place name on the old Hobbs Wall Railroad, an old lumber railroad that operated near Crescent City until the 1930s.
