Reporting for duty

Crescent City’s latest addition to the force can be fierce when he needs to be. 

But when Django came upon a lady in tears recently, his response wasn’t what’s typically expected of a police dog.

“He sensed something was wrong with her,” said his partner, Officer Aaron King, who began working with the 14-month-old German shepherd in March. “He started licking her in the face and rubbing his shoulder against her. She went from incoherent to lucid.”

Garage Sale Review: Junk rage

The spoils of Garage Sale Saturday. Del Norte Triplicate/Aaron West
Hello you bargaining beauties! If you happened to drive north to Brookings on Saturday, you might have noticed that with 83 garage sales listed in the newspaper, it was a perfect weekend for filling your house with other people’s crap. Yes, it was that time of year again — Garage Sale Saturday — when dozens of yard sale signs are stapled to every telephone pole, and desperate hagglers power walk from sale to sale with bloodshot eyes and anxiously-clenched fists gripping sweaty wads of cash. Indeed, a garage sale fever overtook the city like a particularly thrifty strain of Ebola, and I’ll be the first to say that I allowed myself to succumb to the demented junk rage.

You see, a big garage sale weekend demands big garage sale ambitions, and there was only one goal I could think of that would be worthy of Brookings’ Garage Sale Saturday: TO VISIT ALL 83 GARAGE SALES! Did I come back from my mission broke but triumphant, with a car that smelled like a crusty $10 wetsuit? Or did I return home a miserable and failed loser, with a car that smelled like a crusty $10 wetsuit? Read on to find out.

Church Notebook: Treat everyone with kindness, respect

With summer break near, time to planning your vacation Bible school 

Growing up in a very small town in the middle of upstate New York, I was pretty much shielded from a lot of the racial conflict happening in other parts of the country in the ’40s and ’50s. My friends and I could not understand what it was all about — after all, we had no problems.

Dancing for the critters

Second annual dance competition to raise funds for Humane Society of Del Norte

Tickets are going fast for the Humane Society of Del Norte’s second annual dance competition and silent auction, which will be held Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Hall.

Last year’s Dancing with the Stars of Del Norte drew 300 people and brought in $12,200 for the Humane Society’s spay and neuter program. The organization used that money to help fix 762 cats and dogs, said Humane Society President Danielle Larsen-Wheeler.
