Luke Robinson met up with C. Ivan Stoltzfus at the KOA campground just outside Crescent City this weekend. But while Stoltzfus had completed his cross-country trek by tractor on Saturday (see story on Page A1), Robinson was more than 800 miles away from finishing his journey.

Robinson and his two great Pyrenees, 8-year-old Hudson and and 3-year-old Indiana Jones, have spent the past three months hoofing it from Peace Arch Park at the Canadian border through Washington and Oregon.

Fresh foods tempt at Farmers Market

If you’ve noticed that you’re leaving the Farmers Market less hungry than you have in previous years, it might be because the number of hot food vendors is on the rise.

Whether you’re interested in barbecue, Mexican food, Eastern cuisine or just a plain old American hot dog, the Saturday Farmers Market — and increasingly the Wednesday downtown market too — can help you find what you’re looking for.

Grist for the Mill: Americans still need ‘food justice’

Angela Glore’s food column is printed monthly.

Almost two years ago, my family took our ill-conceived detour to Pennsylvania instead of staying put by the ocean and redwoods. We drove out of town the day before four days of Food Day celebrations kicked off. I had spent months going to planning meetings and then missed them all.

Church Notebook: In a mad world, faith is stable

 The world sure seems to be going crazy lately.

Again, I have to say how blessed we are to live in this country in spite of the things that are going on here with things like immigration and health insurance. Look at those poor Christians in Iraq. Threatened with death if they refuse to convert to Islam, stripped of every bit of their belongings at the border if they flee to another country.

The Bible has a lot to say about days like these, and sometimes, it’s enough to make one wonder if we are in those “end days.”  A lot that’s happening seems to fit the scenario.

Outdoor writers conference coming up

Local commerce, tourism groups welcome visitors with aim of raising state, national profile 

Bloggers, magazine writers, photographers and television and radio reporters will descend on the Wild Rivers Coast region next month for a conference local tourism officials say will put Del Norte and Curry counties on the map.

Roughly 75 travel writers and other members of the Outdoor Writers Association of California, or OWAC, will stay at Lucky 7 Casino’s Howonquet Lodge for the association’s fall conference Sept. 13–16. When they’re here, local tourism representatives and businesses will show them what the region has to offer — from fishing and kayaking on the Smith River to hiking in Samuel H. Boardman State Park and jet boat trips on the Rogue River.

Quilters from as far away as Cave Junction will show off their talent with needle, thread and fabric at the Lighthouse Quilt Guild’s biannual show next week.

The show will feature 138 quilts displayed in the main building at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Aug. 14, said guild historian Pat McGuire. Judging will take place Aug. 15, and the show will open to the public on Aug. 16–17. This year’s judge will be Grace Anderson of Grants Pass, who was one of the clothing and textiles judges at the Del Norte County Fair this year, McGuire said.
