Cory's People: Good people at animal shelter

I’ll be the first to admit: I don’t like to visit animal shelters. It’s not them. It’s me. I can’t stand the pain, the sadness, the chaos, and the barking. So when I found a beautiful dog crisscrossing Northcrest Drive, I knew the inevitable had finally happened: I was going to have to visit the local dog shelter.

Christmas certainly went by fast.

But, as the old saying goes, “Time flies when you’re having fun.”

Cory's People: Anniversary of notorious massacre recalls worse local one

On Dec. 29, 1890, at least 200 men, women, and children of the Lakota were killed and 51 or more were wounded, some who died later. Today marks 125 years since the Wounded Knee Massacre.

Granted, that tragedy took place 1,500 miles away in South Dakota. But 37 years before Wounded Knee, a similar, albeit worse massacre took place on our own Del Norte soil: the Yontoket Massacre. In what is now Tolowa Dunes State Park during the winter season of 1853, reports indicate at least 450 Native Americans were murdered, though the exact number is unknown.

Lena Bommelyn told me she is a “reserved” person, yet she was kind enough to invite me, a stranger, into her beautiful home to reflect on the very near decimation of the Tolowa people 162 years ago.

Eyes on the sky

Alan Barron doesn’t know exactly how many Christmas Bird Counts he’s participated in, but he can pinpoint the exact day birds began to fascinate him.

“I was six years old and my grandmother’s birdfeeders in St. Louis,” he said. “She had this patio set up and there were blue jays and cardinals and all this bright colored stuff and it grabbed the little kid. I’ve held onto that and I guess that day I also started tracing the birds on the birdseed bag. I started drawing them too.”
