It started with a cold.

Charlotte Fakier’s cold wasn’t more severe than usual, but after it subsided she still wasn’t 100 percent better. During a camping trip, unpacking left her winded, like she didn’t have enough energy. A few days later when Fakier passed out after doing the dishes, her fiancée Sarah Mitchell realized something was terribly wrong.

“I said, ‘I think you need to go get your blood work done,’” Mitchell said. “She went and got her blood work done in the morning. (The doctor) called her that afternoon when she was at work and told her, ‘It’s an emergency. You need to go to the emergency room right away and get some blood.’ She only had 3 units of blood when she should have had 12.”

Crescent City’s memorial honoring the USS Emidio has been featured in a DVD slideshow that focuses on monuments and memorials nationwide dedicated to the country’s merchant mariners.

The anchor and historical marker commemorating the Emidio is one of 250 monuments that are included in the slideshow, titled “Lest We Forget,” said Sindy Raymond, national office administrator for the American Merchant Marines Veterans Inc. Since the DVD was released in April 2014, the organization has sold more than 300 copies.

Life of Slime

We began at sea, where all things are said to have begun. 

The tide peeled back from the coast for the first time in 2015 on Thursday afternoon, revealing pockmarked rocks strewn with seaweed, stranded cephalopods and other mucilaginous delights.

As the first cloudless sunshine of another New Year glittered against the ocean’s retreat, droves of people combed the beaches north of Crescent City, checking out all the slippery, slimy stuff exposed by a zero-foot low tide.

Happy New Year, one and all.

The older I get, the faster each year seems to stream by. Didn’t we just celebrate Easter? Then the Fourth flashed by, and before we knew it, it was Christmas. Now the whole year is gone!

We see it in watching our children grow, with toddlers suddenly sprouting into teens, and our teens into responsible adults. 

Music guild progresses

Music organization for local amateurs can raise funds 

For the past two years Del Norters who sang, played an instrument or wanted to play an instrument have found their way to the Pacific Music Guild.

Nineteen members play in its jazz band. Singers in the guild’s chorale are anticipating their second trip to Europe this summer. The Pacific Music Guild has even taught Del Norters how to play the steel drum.

Senior Sleuth: Sharon Plack returns love for Del Norte in many ways

“There are 8 million stories in the naked city, and this is one of them.”

Wait, this isn’t the detective show “The Naked City” about New York. This is about Crescent City, and these happen to be love stories. The first one was told by Tabi Rogers in her stirring speech at the Ladies Christian Celebration and Dinner at the fairgrounds. She set the bar pretty high when she told what she called “the greatest love story ever,” the story of Mary and the virgin birth.

Next, I met with Sharon Plack at Pelican Bay State Prison, where she serves as Employee Relations Services Officer. She wanted to tell me about her love story with Doug Plack, and also with Crescent City.

“Doug and I both resided in Colorado. We met in 1989 in court, when I was a paralegal and he was a police officer. Soon after we met, he came to Crescent City on vacation and sent me a postcard. I thought it was the most beautiful postcard. I still have it tucked away in a special spot. It was a postcard of the lighthouse.

What are you doing New Year’s Eve?

Whether you’re looking to party your way into the new year or walk off a few of those holiday pounds, you won’t have trouble finding occasions to do so.

Del Norters will have two concerts to choose from on Wednesday, both featuring local bands. Residents will then be able to get outside the following day with a First Day hike or paddling trip in Humboldt County. There will also be a First Day bike ride in Brookings.
