Church Notebook: A busy time of year

My front yard is awash in yellow. I knew I was hearing some wind early Thursday morning, but I guess it was blowing harder than I thought. There had been a few colorful maple leaves dancing about the past few days, but Thursday morning when I went out to get my Triplicate, I found a carpet of yellow. Pretty enough, but soon they will all be gone.

God knows better than we do about what to save and what to discard — just ask my daughter, as she shakes her head and wonders why I have saved this or that — and I realize I have become my grandmother after all! While we have to look at stuff and ponder which stays and what goes, God just sends the wind and rain and cleans things up.

Community-supported holiday program provides toys and clothing to local children 

As Del Norters begin their holiday shopping, mitten-decked trees will soon appear at local businesses encouraging the community to pitch in for children who are less fortunate.

Rural Human Services is gearing up for its annual Santa’s Workshop project and is reminding low-income families to sign up their children. Supported by the community, the program gives toys and clothing to girls and boys ages 0–15, said RHS Special Projects Coordinator and workshop “Head Elf” Ron Phillips.

Savor the season’s flavors

More than 10 local restaurateurs and food producers will show off their finest seasonal treats at Del Norte Sunrise Rotary’s Taste of the Holidays fundraiser on Saturday.

This will be Sunrise Rotary’s eighth annual Taste of the Holidays, said club president Fran McNamara. The event will be held at the Crescent City Cultural Center.

Local artists featured at new gallery

There’s a new art gallery in Del Norte County, catering to fiber art fanatics as well as those who are looking for unique, inexpensive gifts and fine art.

Located just below the Oregon border, the McMillen Art Gallery & Fiber Arts Studio will open its doors for a ribbon-cutting at 4:30 p.m. Friday and will be holding a special holiday grand opening event throughout the weekend.

Giving shelter year-round

Domestic Violence Awareness Month highlights efforts to help victims 

Harrington House wrapped up another Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Friday, but the work the shelter’s staff does lasts all year.

For nearly 20 years, Harrington House has provided a safe haven for women and children escaping abusive relationships. The staff also provide a helping hand from guiding women, and men, through the legal process of obtaining a restraining order to helping them access services if they are a member of a Native American tribe.

Baby keeps her cheer despite battle with tumor in eye 

Kora Mae Hoy is only 8 months old and has spent half her life battling cancer, but that hasn’t erased the grin on her face.

Diagnosed with retinoblastoma at 5 months old, Kora Mae has had three courses of systemic chemotherapy and one course of localized chemotherapy. Her mother LaShay Gaston gives her seven medications a day, including an injection in her leg. Every three weeks, Gaston and Kora Mae travel to the University of California, San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland for eye exams and treatments.

Weekly discussions, radio show provide  space to discuss women and LGBT issues  

A group like Gender Talk might strike some as incongruous in a conservative community like Crescent City, but siblings Jacob and Rachel Patterson say they just want to “educate people on what’s going on in the world.”

Community makes 50th school carnival a success

On behalf of Redwood School, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to our community for making the 50th annual Redwood School carnival such a success.

So many volunteered their time and efforts, donated items and purchased tickets to our carnival booths. It’s really heartening to see such a high level of support for our staff and our students.
