Folks looking for an original way to bring in the new year and shake off their New Year’s Eve hangover can take a plunge — into Crescent City Harbor.

Del Norte High School’s World Edventures Booster Club is hosting its first ever Polar Bear Plunge and Chili Cook-Off on New Year’s Day. After sprinting into the ocean and back out, people can warm up with some chili and a hot shower. The event is a fundraiser that will help pay for seven high school students to explore the Mediterranean coast this summer.

Sounds of the Season

Bess Maxwell Elementary School on Wednesday “filled the house” as parents came to hear their kids perform in the school band for the school’s winter concert. Since Del Norte County Unified School District hired a new full-time music teacher at the elementary school level and a part-time music teacher at Redwood School, winter concerts have been drawing quite the crowd, Superintendent Don Olson told School Board members Thursday.

“We have 162 fifth-grade band students this year,” he said. “(The concerts) are filling the house. It’s been an amazing turnout.”

Service for those with holiday blues

The holidays are usually a time to break out the lights, bake cookies and celebrate with family, but for some, getting into the spirit of the season can be a chore.

For those who are grieving the death of a loved one or have suffered any other loss, the Blue Christmas service at the United Methodist Church on Wednesday can offer a respite from the fun and the frolic. Pastor Carol Layton, who has overseen a grief support group at the church for about 10 years, said she started the Blue Christmas service five years ago to create a space of remembrance and peace.

Supporting CASA

CASA of Del Norte raised about $2,000 at its annual spaghetti dinner last week and an additional $1,200 at its magic show this weekend.

Donors included Pelican Bay State Prison. Communications Manager Robert Losacco presented a check of $925 to CASA at the spaghetti dinner.

Senior Sleuth: Minister Tabi Roberts’s Christmas message

Cornerstone Assembly of God leader speaks at Ladies Christmas Celebration

Tabi Roberts held the audience in rapt attention as she wove a tale around the women of the Bible, leading up to the Virgin Mary and the birth of Jesus. 

She was speaking at the Ladies Christmas Celebration and Dinner last Thursday at the Fairgrounds Arts and Crafts building. 

It was quite a festive event, selling out all 170 tickets. The ladies’ groups represented churches from all over town. They all looked lovely and were definitely filled with the holy spirit.

Christmas Tree ID

Thunderheads gathered over the Siskiyou Mountains as we headed up French Hill Road near Gasquet last week. The wind moaned ominously, sending creatures great and small one clear message: Get back to your holes while you still can. 

But we couldn’t turn back, not yet. Not after such a long, still unfulfilled day of searching for the perfect Christmas tree in Siskiyou National Forest. 

Whether this tree’s perfection would stem from its intrinsic qualities — or simply from our burning desire to cut it down, put it inside the house and adorn it in electric lights — was not something we had time to ponder before dusk.
