Pacific Coast Airway

 Rich Bolen, a friend of the de Solenni family, signals to a squadron of Apache helcopters during their Friday morning flyover of the grave of Capt. Bruno de Solenni, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2008 while serving with the Oregon National Guard. An army squadron dropped in Thursday and Friday at Del Norte Regional Airport to refuel a fleet of 13 Apaches and one Chinook on the way to their new home base in Fort Lewis, Washington. Keeping to the low elevations and good weather of the coast on its journey, the fleet has stopped to refuel at small airports like Crescent City’s, where there’s little traffic and little wait. 

Building on a foundation of giving

 Wild Rivers Community Foundation celebrates history as it starts new chapter 

Practical reasons prompted the Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s recent move from its previous location at 9th and J streets to its current location:

The new location is more visible, there’s enough space for a meeting room and a resource library and the move brings new life to a building that has been vacant for some time. But the view from the foundation’s new home at 990 Front Street represents what the community can do when it works together, said Board Chair Kevin Hartwick.

Church Notebook: One more old-time camp meeting with the Laytons

Things just keep getting more interesting!

We made it through Kansas with no incidents in “Tornado Alley,” only to arrive in upstate New York with reports of possible tornadoes. And if that wasn’t enough, two dangerous inmates had escaped from the prison in Dannemora and were on the run. But it has been good to see family and a couple of my old high school classmates. Today, we will be heading back to Kansas, and from there, down to Texas.

This is only a drill

Volunteer actors play bus crash victims at a farmers market so agencies can practice their ability to respond to a disaster: Do they know the right procedures? Does their equipment work? What can they do better?

With tsunamis, earthquakes and wildfires knocking at Del Norte’s door, the importance of disaster preparedness is something our community does not take lightly.
