Senior Sleuth: Meditation something you want to think about

The Senior Sleuth column is published every two weeks.

“This is the column you are building!” Paraphrasing a popular TV personality, that’s what I told the free meditation group at Evergreen Bank in Brookings (4–5:15 p.m., every Sunday, led by Robin Sutherland). Robin’s Crescent City meeting is every Saturday, 10–11:15 a.m. at Beachfront Yoga, 625 2nd St. She teaches Mindfulness Meditation, Shamatha/Vipassana.

Meditation is a massive subject, enormously effective, and I’m sure many of you know a lot more about it than I do. Please let me know. Let’s start a dialogue.

Years ago, I was exposed to Transcendental Meditation lessons, which were quite expensive. As I recall, the price was a bit of a turnoff. These days, meditation practice is much more widespread, accessible and helpful.

Robin believes that through my column, we can possibly spread the word and bring together teachers, practitioners, learners and anyone who is interested.

I asked Robin’s group of 12 (disciples?) how they would describe the advantages of meditation. They were very certain of the benefits.

Local holiday events get rolling today with tree fest, boutique

The Triplicate printed a roundup of upcoming holiday events Thursday. Here is a shorter list of the events coming up first, starting today:

Festival of Trees

Today marks the Crescent City Emblem Club’s 19th annual Festival of the Trees at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.

This year, the club is honoring longtime member Billie Myers, the brainchild of the event that has grown into the largest and most successful fundraiser for the club.

Decorated trees, large and small, are donated by local businesses, organizations and individuals and are raffled off during the event. Last year the event drew 370 people and 64 trees were donated. All proceeds go to local charities, Wounded Warriors and scholarships.

Tree raffle tickets cost $1 each or six for $5. There’s a separate raffle, with tickets costing $5 apiece, for  the “gift certificate tree” (valued at approximately $1,400).  Luncheon tickets cost $15. 

In addition to the lunch, there’ll be a fashion show put on by Chere’s Boutique, door prizes and a variety of silent auction items to bid on.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and lunch is served at noon. 

Call Ellie at 954-2640 for more information.

Don’t stress about Thanksgiving dinner, or any large dinner, for that matter.

First, make as much ahead of time as you can. This is your preparation work and should include chopping onions, celery, carrots (aka mirepoix) and any other vegetables that won’t brown. Have components of your dishes prepared so that cooking is minimal on turkey day.

Want homemade cranberry sauce or compote? You could prepare that days in advance.

Bake rolls in advance and freeze. They reheat in a warm oven beautifully.

Doing a lot of the work ahead means you can have more dishes or, if you’re like me, you can concentrate on several of your favorites and make sure they’re jazzed up and taste even better than usual.

Garnish your dishes with fresh herbs, homemade cultured butter or homemade caramel sauce.

This is why prepping ahead is my favorite piece of advice. When you wait, you get too busy to do the little extras that can really make your meal memorable.

Around Del Norte: 60 years of selfless service

Read more...
Local Rotary Club members and family held an anniversary dinner Thursday night at Elk Valley Rancheria. Submitted by Ron Gastineau
“Service Above Self.”

That’s the motto of Rotary International, which brings together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

It’s a tall order, and one that has been carried out in Del Norte since 1953 by the Rotary Club of Crescent City. Its members celebrated its first 60 years Thursday with a pizza lunch at its normal noon gathering spot at the Elks Lodge, then an anniversary dinner at Elk Valley Rancheria.

“The idea that, together, individuals can make a difference in the lives of others is the true spirit of Rotary,” said Rotary member Teri McCune Oostra. “In fact, a key factor to becoming a member in Rotary is that he or she believes in Rotary’s motto of ‘Service Above Self.’”

So what has this organization done for Del Norte? So much that every member I asked answered with different examples.
