Del Norter’s care packages to troops in war zones made a difference, former soldier says  

Every other week for two years, Chris Anthony, a sergeant in the U.S. Army, received a box — a glimpse of home in the desert and mountains of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Anthony, who left the Army about four years ago and is now a private security contractor working in Afghanistan, took the time Friday to honor Jan Martin, who spearheaded Del Norte County Troop Support, which sent care packages to soldiers overseas. Anthony also recognized volunteers Yvonne Maciel, Helen Dewey, Nancy Smith and Gerry Rance.

Del Norte People: Blessed by company of woodcutters

Longtime Del Norte County resident Chuck Blackburn’s column appears monthly.

Each month in my semi-retirement it has been a delight to sit down and choose a topic to write about for the “Trip.” 

I have felt blessed in life for all the experiences that God has provided me in so many ways. As I was introduced to the county and the Klamath at age 13 as a seasonal dock boy, it gave me a chance to experience logging, fishing, agriculture and other facets of a rural area. It was exciting for me to see what makes this area “tick” and to watch so many hard-working men make a living, nor can I forget the role of hardworking women, many of them mothers. I still feel that excitement today.

Grist for the Mill: Cooking up a Storm (Of Flour)

My family’s holiday baking traditions run deep. Between Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas, the oven and the stove stay busy. 

My dad usually takes care of the Thanksgiving pies. I wasn’t with him this year, so I cheated and let Vita Cucina take care of the pumpkin pie. 

I spent one Thanksgiving on a kibbutz in Israel. I had never made a pie from scratch, but I was missing home and asked if I could make an apple pie. The kitchen manager said yes, even though my poor Hebrew skills couldn’t really explain why I wanted it. The next day, she came in all smiles — she had seen the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the news and suddenly understood why I made the pie!

Church Notebook: Hanukkah party and potluck brings families together

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah falls just before Christmas this year — the final day on Christmas Eve. It’s an eight-day celebration that memorializes the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem.

At that time, the people found there was not enough oil to burn for the required eight nights, but God made their supply last those eight days until more could be made.

Today, a Menorah, a special candelabra holding nine candles, is a special reminder.Each night of the eight days, one more candle is lit, until on the eighth night, all are ablaze.
