Del Norte People: Fisherman remembered for prowess on Klamath

Longtime Del Norte County resident Chuck Blackburn’s column appears monthly.

This past month I lost a friend of many years on the Klamath River, Merkie Oliver. 

I met Merkie in the summer of 1956 as I started guiding for salmon fishing at the Requa Resort, owned by Alvin and Juanita Larsen. There were about a dozen Yurok guides working out of Requa. I was 20 years old at the time, and I believe that Merkie was 23 — three years my senior.

Brave New World

Editor’s note: This is the inaugural installment of a new monthly column, “The Accidental Family,” written by the Triplicate’s former “Localvore” columnist. 

I’ll start with a confession: I’m the accidental mother of four. My husband and I started our family with two little boys, Henry, 7, and Theo, 4, but our two girls, Emily and Lydia, 16, officially became part of our family this past December. Adopting them was a very intentional act — on our part as well as theirs — but they came into our lives in an unexpected way.

This first contribution to The Accidental Parent will be about the brave new world that all six of us now inhabit — a world we are just starting to explore.

Church Notebook: Spring blooms are reminders of this amazing world

The rain’s back — and welcome — because it washes everything down when it comes.

There always seems to be a skittering of paper cups and the like drifting in the streets, but a bit of breeze and a good rain seems to take care of it. If only people would hang onto their empty containers until they get home and put them in the trash!

It washes the dead stuff out of the redwoods, and revitalizes the grass and other growing things.
