Thanks Jan. 14, 2014

Maryanne Fallman, right, CASA chair of the “My Backpack Project,” accepts a donation of $500 from US Bank Branch Manager Amanda Chadwick in November. Submitted
Thank you to US Bank for its donation of $500 to CASA of Del Norte to support the “My Backpack Project.” 

Typically when children are removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect they have nothing more than the basic clothes on their back and usually those clothes need to be removed for the safety of the child.  This very traumatic experience is intensified by children not having their own personal items — comforting blanket, baby doll, favorite toy, pillow, clothes, etc.

Around Del Norte: Anonymous, but appreciated

Nick Gonnella knows how to keep a secret. But it’s not easy. 

For the second Christmas season in a row, the Walmart store manager has kept the identity of whom he calls the “layaway angel” under wraps.

“I respect that she wants to be anonymous,” said Nick, “but part of me just wants to scream out her name.”

Praise given when due

When something displeases me, I am quick to say so. But I am just as quick to give praise when that is due, as it was recently. I had just gotten back from my credit union, after dreading to even have to go there. The rain was miserable, and doing business on the first day of the month is usually a nightmare of long lines and grumpy people. And since they were closed recently, I fully expected a most unpleasant experience, standing in a long line in pain and aggravation, berating myself for using my cane instead of the walker, which has a seat.
