Winter visitors

Ruby-crowned kinglet
It is winter, the time of year that everything in nature seems to come to a halt. Everything is about the preservation of energy. Deciduous trees and shrubs drop their leaves and play dead, a lot of animals retreat to where they wait out the winter and a lot of our summer birds leave altogether. These migrants travel south to spend the winter in areas with warmer weather and more food. Food that was abundant here during the spring and summer has pretty much disappeared, so it is a matter of survival to migrate south.

“Can we practice in the tutus today?” Exclaimed a budding ballerina as she rushed into class. 

Another dancer chimed in, “Please please please? Can we wear the Can-Can skirts too?”

Good guys and little guys

Katelyn Carson’s first stop was the purse aisle.

The 9-year-old had her 2-year-old sister Monica, Del Norte County Sheriff’s Deputy Jerrin Gill, sheriff’s Explorer Alex Moseley and Explorer volunteer Nate Trimm to help her and $40 to buy gifts for her family. After scanning purses in brown, red and snakeskin, Katelyn settled on purple.

“Mommy likes purple,” she said.

A flag to remember Rocky

Rocky Peterson
In the midst of World War II, Crescent City named Peterson Park for one of its sons, a cracker-jack baseball player who made the ultimate sacrifice during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

But 71 years later, many local residents don’t know who Roscoe “Rocky” Peterson is. The grandstands that bore his name no longer exist and a plaque in his honor is so tarnished his name is unrecognizable. The local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter hopes to change that.

Cory's People: Mother who lost children homeless no more

She had three strikes against her: She was black, she was homeless, and the police were on her tail.

Red Hatters celebrate Christmas in style

Wind and rain did not deter 28 members of the Crescent City Beacon Belles Red Hatters from attending their annual Christmas party.

A new member, Garnet Strom, was welcomed to the group.

Gathered in the Summer Park recreation room, they enjoyed a traditional Christmas Dinner thanks to Marlene Fletcher and her daughter Elaine Gardner, Donna Dunn, Dorothy McNertney, Susan Miller and Paula Wilson.

A variety of games were played and those attending departed bearing gifts and stacks of Christmas cards.
