As soon as she was done with one client, farm interns brought forth another. When Herbert came forward, horns framing his wooly face, Valentine wrestled him onto his back and with a few buzzes of her shears divested him of his coat of fleece

At 5K, club will provide low-key but vital service

They won’t be running the route or distributing water, but the Del Norte Amateur Radio Club will still provide an important, if low-key, service.

The peculiar porcupine

 For some Del Norters, the idea of porcupines rambling through the dune forests and marshes near lakes Earl and Tolowa may be a revelation.

But Humboldt State University Wildlife Professor Tim Bean has received reports of more sightings of the quill-covered critter, the third largest rodent in the world, at Tolowa Dunes State Park than any other part of California.

“I have a website where people can go and submit sightings if they see a porcupine,” Bean said. “That website went up about two years ago and most of the sightings were coming from Tolowa Dunes. About 80 percent (of reports) have come from Tolowa Dunes and Crescent City in general."

A howling good time for local canines

 Does your dog have what it takes to make a weird outfit look good? Will he or she eat her vegetables to earn bonus points or come when you call her despite a hundred distractions?

Now’s your chance to find out at the 8th Annual Coastal Canine Olympics on Saturday at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.

About 50 dogs will compete in a variety of different games ranging from a costume contest to an agility course for beginners and advanced, said Humane Society of Del Norte volunteer Cheryl Wilson. In addition to the four-legged olympians and their companions, Wilson said she expects about 110 spectators to cheer them on.

Smith River cleanup on Sat.

People who love the Smith River can help keep it pristine by joining the Smith River Alliance’s annual clean up effort on Saturday.

Volunteers will visit illegal dump sites scattered throughout the Smith River National Recreation Area, said Alessandro Broido, who is coordinating the cleanup. In the past, volunteers have removed water heaters, dishwashers and dryers as well as mattresses, toys, clothing and other discarded items.

“I’m hoping to get a headcount beforehand as to how many people are going to be there,” Broido said. “From there we’ll split up into groups and go out to different areas where there are multiple target sites. One group might go up South Fork Road and maybe one group goes to North Bank Road and to Low Divide.”

Success again thanks to help

 Putting a festival together takes a lot of time and hard work. It would not be possible without the help of many people. The people behind the scene, the ones in front, the vendors, the donors and the musicians, all play a big part of making these wonderful events happen.

We thank the Del Norte Triplicate and the Klamath Chamber of Commerce for their extra help in getting the information out. Thank you to Walgreens, the fairgrounds and KPOD for helping with advertising.

Thanks to Home Depot for being there, for giving and assisting over 60 children in putting together a kids size tool box. Also for supplying the materials for two Free Little Libraries, that Jeff Witvoet built.
