Senior Sleuth: Dancers, donors help Humane Society

The cats have plenty to howl about, and Danielle Larsen-Wheeler, head of the Humane Society, has plenty to be proud of after the hugely successful Dancing with the Stars event held at the Veterans Hall on May 10. I caught up with Danielle later and asked her whose idea the event was. She said she learned about it from some people who did it in Medford. “I wanted to add to our auction which is normally kind of boring.”

 “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. 
They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller 

The extravagant beauty of the land and sea and the fascinating interwoven ecology of its rare plants and animals take center stage in Redwood National and State Parks (RNSP). I’ve spent most of my adult life working in these parks, yet I continue to be amazed by the power of our natural wonders. However, I’m also a lover of history. Many of the landscapes that we cherish and want to maintain for the future have been shaped by the hands of people. An important mission of national and state parks is to protect and preserve not only natural resources, but also our nation’s rich cultural heritage and the stories of our diverse people. Our history is intimately connected to the land and every bit as important. One story cannot be told without the other.

Church Notebook: Asking the Lord for guidance, wherever you are, a good idea

 Prayer seems to be a major topic lately.

I read a news story a few days ago about a 5-year-old girl in Florida who says she was told by her lunch teacher not to pray. The child says she bowed her head to say a private grace before eating her lunch, but the teacher told her that was not a good thing to do!

 Mother, daughter finish associate degrees together 

For some women, going to the same college as your mom — or your kid — could be a recipe for disaster, but not for Alicia and Robin Flowers.

For the mother-daughter duo, attending classes at College of the Redwoods’ Del Norte Education Center at the same time made transportation easier. It also gave them a chance to spend more time together.

 This month I would like to share some insights about my life, about my directions in life and how all of this has affected my relationship with this community.

As a broadcaster of Warrior football and basketball over KPOD Radio, I would say “I love this community and its people.” Everything that I have been involved with in Del Norte has used that statement for my motivations.
