Annual botany event adds photo, art competitions

From oceanfront dunes to rocky alpine cliffs with redwood rainforest in between, Del Norte County’s 1,230 square miles of varied terrain  house thousands of species of flora and fauna. This weekend, some of its most delicate and colorful residents will take center stage at the Arthur Van Deventer Wildflower Painting and Photography Competition.

The annual Ruby Van Deventer Wildflower Show has honored Del Norte’s famous amateur botanist Ruby Van Deventer for the past seven years, but this year organizers decided to change things up and add an opportunity for local painters and photographers to show their work as well as honor Ruby’s husband, Arthur Van Deventer, an artist and wildflower enthusiast in his own right.

Hello, you odds and ends enthusiasts! This is the second part of an in-depth look at what your garage sale sign says about your garage sale, so if you’ve ever been in a position where you’re deciding whether or not to use a yellow crayon and a piece of toilet paper to advertise your sale then start paying attention. In last week’s installment I detailed my conversation with Terry, The Garage Sale Sensei, who turned me onto his good sign-good sale theory, and what follows below is a play-by-play of what happened when I put The Sensei’s hypothesis into the ol’ secondhand test tube of yard sale experimentation.

Empowered Living: Overcoming long history of abuse takes time

In this column, Rene Quintana of Supported Living Services will explore the strides adults with intellectual disabilities have made in deciding their own future.

Recently I sat down with a client and we discussed the history of intellectual disability. The earliest record, according to research done by Catherine K. Harbour, Ph.D., MPH and Pallab K. Maulik, Phd., M.Sc., is on an “Egyptian papyrus of Thebes” dated circa 1552 B.C. The Romans allowed people with intellectual disabilities to own property and, according to Drs. Harbour and Maulik, to have guardians. As the centuries passed and civilization metamorphosed, people with intellectual disabilities were still part of the growing communities. It was not until the 1700s and 1800s during the Victorian era that things changed.

Society began the practice of institutionalizing this population and this is where the problems began. Some medical solutions proposed in this era included repeated slapping and cold baths. Other physicians at the time proposed isolation boxes placed on patient’s heads and suspending the person midair in a chair.

Biblical principles guide new 'Hope House'

Daphane Williams is the founder, CEO and executive director of Lynn’s Hope House of New Beginnings.

There is a new nonprofit in town by the name of Lynn’s Hope House of New Beginnings. It will be a structured program that will apply Biblical principles to help women who have been incarcerated in jail/prison and need to transition back into the community to achieve self-supportive living.

We believe that everyone deserves a chance and deserves a new beginning despite what one may have done or been through. At Lynn’s Hope House of New Beginnings, every woman will be treated with dignity and respect, while they are assisted in being empowered to change.
