Incendio sets Friday concert in Smith River

Members of the fiery, guitar-driven, world music band Incendio draw as much from the music of Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan and Rush as they do Spanish and classical guitar.

“You’ve got it,” says frontman Jean-Pierre Durand. “We’re a rock band that plays Spanish guitar. We carry ourselves like rockers on stage and it has served us well.”

Incendio will bring its mix of classical, jazz, flamenco, rock and even Celtic sounds to the Lucky 7 Casino in Smith River on Friday. Tickets are $20 and available at the door; in Crescent City at Del Norte Office Supply, and in Brookings at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies and the Curry Coastal Pilot.

The concert is sponsored by two nonprofit organizations: Friends of Music and Stagelights Musical Arts Community.


Around Del Norte: Two types of cleanup

Holiday-themed events under way, with plenty more to come

Nancy Chernak takes part in Saturday’s Take a Bite Out of Blight cleanup event of Del Norte County rights-of-way off Union Street, just south of Iowa Street and Elk Valley Road. Submitted
The Take a Bite Out of Blight volunteers were chewing on another cleanup site Saturday, this time in unseasonably cold weather.

The volunteers organized by Our Daily Bread and county Supervisor Roger Gitlin tried to stay warm by removing about 2 tons of trash that had been illegally dumped over time near Union Street, east of Iowa Avenue out Elk Valley Road.

Roger founded the “Bite Out of Blight” effort, which has accomplished surgical strikes for more than a year now in an effort to make our community more picturesque. But he hasn’t done it alone.

“I am in awe of the Daily Bread volunteers who devoted part of their Saturday to pitch in and clean up our community,” said Roger. “There was no cost to the taxpayers as this was a 100 percent volunteer effort.”


Senior Sleuth: A supportive setting for weight loss

“There was joy and happiness at the scale today!” Thus began a recent Weight Watchers meeting at the Methodist Church (Tuesday mornings, 11:45 a.m.–12:45 p.m., or afternoons, 5–6 p.m.)

The group dynamic was definitely in play as the leader, Melodee Mitchell, executive director of the Child Care Council, started the meeting.

She, herself, is very dynamic, and she was congratulating approximately 20 members in attendance who had lost weight since the last meeting.  Their ages ranged from teenagers to at least one member in her 90s.

The first half-hour of the meeting was devoted to weighing everyone privately.


All about bell-ringing

It was so much fun ringing the bell for the Salvation Army in front of Walmart last Saturday, seeing all the excited kiddies, greeting our friends, and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

But after one lady put a donation in the red kettle, she asked us if any of the donated money stays here, or is it sent out of the county? We didn’t know, so we asked Bell-Ringer-in-Chief Dana (who is rumored to be a real live elf) for the answer.


Supervisor finishes state term

The California State Association of Counties (CSAC) elected a new slate of Officers Nov. 21 at the CSAC Annual Meeting in San Jose, Santa Clara County, officially ending the year-long term of Del Norte County Supervisor David Finigan as president.

Finigan will continue to serve as CSAC’s immediate past president.

“It’s been a great year for me personally and for CSAC as an organization,” said Finigan. “I’m especially proud of the work we did to improve the lives of children in California during the past year.”

Holiday grief: There's help

Grief takes no holidays, which makes this season of celebration especially hard for people who have lost loved ones or suffer from depression.

Or both.

Beth Enea
“I need a distraction each year,” said Beth Enea of Crescent City, who lost her son Brent to suicide eight years ago. “So I put up the Christmas tree.” 

Unpacking ornaments collected over the years, she looks for one in particular, “a crafty thing that Brent made in second grade that has his picture on it. And that’s the first thing that goes on my tree.


Light shows are under way

The holiday season is being illuminated with light shows at Azalea Park in Brookings and at Trees of Mystery north of Klamath.

Nature’s Coastal Holiday features a display of about 500,000 lights in Azalea Park in Brookings from 5 to 9 p.m. nightly through Dec. 24.

Spokesman Bryan Tillung said the lights and figurines have been arranged differently than years past in order to make the show new even for longtime attendees. 

Free cookies and cider are available and speakers located throughout the park will play Christmas music. Carolers will sing on weekends and Santa Claus will be on hand Dec. 21–24.
