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.


Church Notebook: Class introduces healthy balance in ‘full plate diet’

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.

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.

‘Barefoot’ helps fill nonprofits’ coffers

In Barefoot Wine’s early days, Randy Arnold’s boss gave him this piece of advice: “Go where you enjoy being and sell wine there.”

So Arnold got in his car, left the winery behind in the Central Valley and headed up U.S. Highway 101 and Highway 1 to the North Coast. 

After 25 years, Arnold calls himself “the Barefoot guy.” As ambassador of the winery he visits the North Coast about four times a year. Arnold is often found underneath the redwoods when he’s not selling wine, but it was under the spruces at Patrick’s Point State Park that he became introduced to the Redwood Parks Association. 


Church Notebook: A merry, bright Christmas Day

It may have been on the chilly side, but Christmas Day turned out to be sunny and bright.

Not like the ones I grew up with, for sure, because they were often celebrated amid at least a foot or more of snow. Pretty, but not much fun if you had to travel any distance.

But it wasn’t snowing, and my daughter only lives on the other side of town, so the “trip” to enjoy the holiday with her family, and some of her husbands’, was short and pleasant. And it was so nice to have little ones around for a bit — my youngest grandchild is now 16, so her sister-in-law’s grandchildren filled the bill quite nicely. Older youngsters express delight with gifts, but there’s something special about the reactions of the 5-and-under bunch. 


At Nature's Mercy

Enough water to flood an area the size of France. Thousands of residents of Oregon, California, Washington, Idaho and Nevada made homeless. In today’s dollars, it left $3.5 billion in damage — the Christmas Flood of 1964 was one of the most significant weather events ever in the Northwest, but it wasn’t the first flood of its size, and likely won’t be the last.   

What happened in 1964?

A rainy, snowy fall across Oregon set the region up for a perfect storm of melting snowpack and full rivers when the rain started on Dec. 18. A high-pressure system had kept much of the rain north of California until then, but now “a storm track 500 miles wide extending from near Hawaii to Oregon and Northern California was established,” according to information provided by hydrologist Reg Kennedy, of the National Weather Service’s Eureka office.
