Church Notebook: Christmas events, meals stacking up

Black Friday.

From what you hear in the news so often afterward, seems like “Black and Blue Friday” might be a more appropriate term!

I tried it once — 12 years ago. The first year I was back in Crescent City. It was a new thing to me, but I went with friends to check it out. Not my cup of tea. Actually, I don’t even like to shop on Saturdays anymore, but I suppose that’s just part of getting old. Too many people to have to maneuver around, and my patience gauge seems to drop to “zero” a lot faster than it used to.

Many hands, light work

Volunteers expect to serve around 800 turkey dinners 
at annual holiday celebration 

Volunteers have been hard at work this week scouring the main hall at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds to get it ready for Thanksgiving.

Volunteers will fire up the kitchen at 7 a.m. today to get all the sides prepared by show time at noon. The star of the community Thanksgiving dinner will be the 40 turkeys that were donated by Cholwell, Benz and Hartwick, ordered by Northwoods Restaurant and roasted at various locations throughout town.

Firefighters switch gears to collect gifts

As the turkey coma wears off and the holiday shopping frenzy sets in, local firefighters and the Marine Corps Reserve are asking folks to pick up an extra toy or two for those in need.

The Crescent Fire Protection District and Crescent City Fire Department are kicking off their Spark of Love toy drive next month in conjunction with Toys for Tots and Rural Human Services’ Santa’s Workshop program. Firefighters will be in the Walmart and Walgreens parking lots every weekend in December through the 21st collecting unwrapped toys or cash.

Federal audit questions tribe’s use of grants

An audit from the U.S. Department of Justice’s solicitor general released this month questions $112,123 in federal grant funding used by the Yurok Tribe’s Hoe-Kue-Moh Corporation, a nonprofit organization providing legal services for tribal members.

The audit also says that required financial and progress reports submitted by Hoe-Kue-Moh contained discrepancies. Hoe-Kue-Moh has since implemented policies and procedures that address and will avoid future discrepancies found by the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General, according to the audit.

More than 40 decorated Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes stood at the perimeter of the main building at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday.

Teddy bears and stuffed animals hid in the eaves of some trees; others had toy trains chugging away underneath and shiny baubles hanging from their boughs. 

Grassroots effort to beautify Redwood School

Hand-drawn plans detail the Redwood Curb Appeal project. Submitted
Sixty-five years ago, Susan Taylor’s grandfather donated the land Redwood School was built on. Now, the retired teacher is teaming up with the school district, teachers and parents to beautify the elementary school’s entryway.

“I went to all of the different campuses of the town schools and I thought, ‘Wow, I’m impressed,’” Taylor said. “I went to Redwood ... it looked like an abandoned old building. It looked like nobody cared. I thought, ‘I’m retired; I have the time. I need to do something about it.’”

Church Notebook: Giving thanks for family

Just a few more days to Thanksgiving.

Many of you will be surrounded by your families — maybe even all of your children and grandchildren if you are fortunate enough to all be in sufficient proximity to gather.

Happy Feet

 Shawna Wilson was somewhat nervous when 24 kids streamed into Payless ShoeSource on Friday, but she said she was looking forward to it. 

The youngsters, second- and third-graders from Bess Maxwell Elementary School, lined up in front of the store manager and her associate Tiffany Lopez to have their feet measured. Once they learned their size, the kids combed the aisles, looking for the perfect pair of sneakers as their substitute teacher, Cathy Woodward, looked on.

“You may use your walking feet and look for shoes,” Woodward said. “Do not grab them off the shelves and do not take them out of the box unless you put them back.”
