Crescent Elk’s Monique Camarena wins district contest 

Someone with a spray of flowers in their buttonhole may be overdressed for a spelling bee but for Monique Camarena, getting the word “boutonniere” right secured her first place win.

Monique, a Crescent Elk Middle School student, won the eighth-grade portion of Del Norte County Unified School District’s spelling bee on March 9. She will advance to the California State Junior High Spelling Bee May 14 at Miller Creek Middle School in San Rafael.

Henry Mata
He drove for 30 days across the Australian outback sleeping in the Range Rover each night to avoid death by spiders or snakes. He wanted to see what the desert looked like.

During his 20-plus years as a firefighter in Southern California a car wrecked, flipped over, and one man was ejected. The passenger was pregnant and he delivered the baby, all while upside down.


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.

The shoe exchange is 1 p.m. -3 p.m. on the lower level of the Brookings Elks Lodge, 800 Elk Dr. For more information, call Linda Schreiber at 541-469-9850.

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.

Traditional Eel

Read more...Yurok host first annual Kee Kyah Eel Roast

Gaze on this low-carb and protein-rich seasonal favorite. It’s dripping with vitamins, minerals, and healthy omega 3. It’s as local as they come. It is delicious. 

But a flash-in-the-pan food fad this is not; the Yurok have harvested Pacific lamprey for as long as they have kept quarters on the Klamath. Each winter, between salmon runs, the eel-like boneless fish reach the river’s mouth, where Yurok fishermen wait with woven baskets and hooks. 

This year marks the first “Kee Kyah Eel Roast,” where locals and interlopers alike packed the reservation’s Visitor Center Sunday afternoon for fish freshly cooked across the road over an open grill.
