Cory's People: Worthy of recognition as a veteran

Captain Sua Phia Lo in 1966.
He lives a long way from his roots in Laos. Hmong are known as “mountain people.” Living in a sprawling, ranch style house in Crescent City with extended family, his homeland is now near the Pacific Ocean. He doesn’t speak English. He is deaf due to a bomb exploding near him, causing his ears to bleed. But that was a long time ago.

Most of Natalie Hanlon’s students have never seen the water, but after teaching them the basics the youngsters leave with more confidence.

“By the end of five classes they know how to swim,” the lifeguard said. “It’s quite a blessing to be able to work with them.”

More faith in our community might improve safety

Lenten Taize service Sunday at St. Paul’s 

It’s that time again. Tomorrow, Daylight Savings Time begins.

I suppose it has it’s advantages, but sometimes I wonder why they can’t just leave it alone.

Destruction, death gives way to new friendship

The first surge swept into the Crescent City Harbor at 7:35 a.m. March 11, 2011, hours after a massive earthquake struck Japan.

It raised the water by four feet in seven minutes before leaving the harbor about 15 minutes later. But when the water dropped by 12 feet at about 8 a.m., most fishermen knew the harbor would be in for a beating.

Crescent City Harbor: Rebuilt port can weather similar events

Tsunami-resistant renovation was already in the works, but after 2011 surges wrecked harbor, new federal money lowered the local burden by millions 

In March 2011, Crescent City Harbor was destroyed by the Tohoku tsunami, tearing docks from pilings, sinking 11 boats and dumping more than 100,000 cubic yards of silt and other fine material into the inner boat basin. But the port most likely would have endured the entire calamity with only minor damage if the tsunami had come knocking a couple years later.

On Feb. 18, 2011, the Crescent City Harbor District was handed a permit from the California Coastal Commission greenlighting reconstruction of the inner boat basin to withstand a 50-year tsunami — a force greater than what struck in 2011. The harbor was severely damaged by a tsunami in 2006, and for years harbor staff had been lobbying state agencies to fund a port designed to withstand the type of tsunami expected once every 50 years instead of simply rebuilding what was destroyed.

Emergency Response: It went so smoothly itís now a textbook example

By the time the waves hit Crescent City early in the morning of March 11, 2011, forecasters already had ample time to predict the surge’s precise impact and residents still had the state’s first complete evacuation drill fresh in their minds.
