Julie McNiel’s students lead rigidly structured lives inside Pelican Bay State Prison but with some acrylic paint and a few brushes they can transcend the walls confining them.

Through a brush stroke, a guitar chord or a writing exercise, the inmates show a side of themselves the community rarely sees. 

“Through art practice, the men can explore a different kind of landscape,” McNiel writes in a teacher-artist statement for the new Art in Public Places show at the Del Norte County Courthouse. “Each picture becomes a window and a mirror; a site for reflection where the imagination can find release.”

Free shoe exchange in Brookings on Saturday

Folks looking for some Easter and prom shoes should check out the shoe exchange Saturday in Brookings.

There will be children’s shoes, including baby and toddler, men’s work boots, women’s dress boots and baseball cleats. All are free. Bins will be set out for donations at the lower level of the Elks Lodge. 

The shoe exchange is no longer collecting donations at the Julindra recycling plant in Crescent City since too much trash was put into the collection bin. Shoes need to be in good condition.

Coast Guard community cleanup

On March 12 the crew of Coast Guard Cutter Dorado joined with Crescent City citizens for a Community Cleanup with great success. We thank each and every volunteer for their time and effort. The photograph displays the amount of trash collected on Washington Boulevard alone. Inclement weather forced an early end to the clean-up and we were not able to reach all of our intended areas. However, this was truly an eye opening experience, and we are very eager to schedule another clean-up this summer. If you would like to get involved or volunteer, please contact Commanding Officer, Andrew Russo at 954-1021.
