Classic Depression-era play on local stage

‘Glass Menagerie’ based on author’s life 

Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s latest production is set during the Great Depression, but President Nina Burgess says its issues are just as relevant today.

LRT is tackling Tennessee Williams’ 1944 play “The Glass Menagerie.” 

Susan Daugherty stars as Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle who is trying to raise her two children during the 1930s. Siblings Luke and Katy Graves play Tom and Laura Wingfield, Amanda’s children, one an aspiring writer and the other struggling with mental issues that isolate her from the outside world. Alex Gastineau stars as the “gentleman caller” Jim O’Connor.

Senior Sleuth: Vosburg reflects on brother, Vietnam vet

Cindy Vosburg, Triplicate publisher, and Matt Durkee, editor, met with local veterans to discuss plans for Veterans Day and to talk about issues affecting Del Norte veterans. The group asked for support from the paper to cover the parade and banquet in the evening. They said, “It’s a huge thing in the community, and it’s really something you should be a part of.”

Cindy wholeheartedly agreed and said, “The Triplicate is a huge supporter of veterans. I, personally, am the daughter of a vet. I’m the wife of a vet. I’m the sister of a vet. And I’m the mother of a vet. So I’ve lived it. I’m that family. That covers from the Korean War to the current wars. And also, Matt, the editor, is an Air Force brat. He grew up in part on an Air Force base in England. You’ve got allies and friends here. We believe it’s our duty back at home to support our vets.

Del Norte People: Feeling like a kid in a candy store

I’m sure that as youngsters we have had the opportunity to go to candy stores or candy sections at a store. Looking at all the goodies behind the glass on the counters certainly looks inviting to the participants. Now comes the time to choose what sweet morsel to buy.

As I have matured into later life, I relate to the kid in the candy store with an attitude of life as we live it. You can take each day as “blasé” or boring, or better yet, enter into the world of a candy store with brightly colored and sweet goodies transmitting to our system a great day, a great time and total enjoyment.

Grist for the Mill: A foodie's winter reading list

We’ve turned on our heat a few times over the past couple weeks. Waves of rain are replenishing our water supplies. Food Day was disrupted (but not canceled) by our first major power outage of the year. Winter is coming, and soon. 

It seems like a good time to chat about books.  

Cookbooks and food memoirs seem like natural companions for an afternoon in front of a wood stove. Curling up to soup and bread recipes or stories of a life in food might make you hungry, but will also feed your soul.

Church Notebook: A busy time of year

My front yard is awash in yellow. I knew I was hearing some wind early Thursday morning, but I guess it was blowing harder than I thought. There had been a few colorful maple leaves dancing about the past few days, but Thursday morning when I went out to get my Triplicate, I found a carpet of yellow. Pretty enough, but soon they will all be gone.

God knows better than we do about what to save and what to discard — just ask my daughter, as she shakes her head and wonders why I have saved this or that — and I realize I have become my grandmother after all! While we have to look at stuff and ponder which stays and what goes, God just sends the wind and rain and cleans things up.

Santa's Helpers

As Del Norters begin their holiday shopping, mitten-decked trees will soon appear at local businesses encouraging the community to pitch in for children who are less fortunate.

Rural Human Services is gearing up for its annual Santa’s Workshop project and is reminding low-income families to sign up their children. Supported by the community, the program gives toys and clothing to girls and boys ages 0–15, said RHS Special Projects Coordinator and workshop “Head Elf” Ron Phillips.
