 Visitors to the Del Norte County Fairgrounds may soon hear the wail of a train whistle and the clickity-clack of cars riding the rails.

The Del Norte Short Lines Model Railroad Club and the Crescent City Lions are seeking community support for a project that will transform a small room in the fairgrounds’ Home Economics building into a massive railroad layout that will include communities from Grants Pass west to Crescent City and north to Smith River. 

Triplicate, Pilot want to hear about your holiday traditions

Share your favorite happy holiday tradition, recipe, memory or photo — and it might be published in the Del Norte Triplicate and Curry Coastal Pilot.

It’s the time of year some churches hold holiday bazaars

There’s an old saying about “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”..... but I think it can better be said that “something you don’t need anymore, but is still in great shape, can be just what someone else needs.”

Making a stand

 Paul Madeira surveyed the progress of his new farmstand. 

With two days left until the grand opening, his interns sawed wood and hammered siding into place pausing only to receive direction from their boss.

“We’ve been doing construction for five weeks,” Madeira said Thursday. “We envisioned it taking two months, but then we couldn’t really start it until five weeks before we wanted to open it.”

LRT: Sordid Lives

 At first glance, the deceased appears to have been a respectable God-fearing woman, but the circumstances surrounding her death have plunged this small Texas town into chaos.

“She tripped over a pair of wooden legs in a seedy hotel room and bled to death while her lover was passed out on the bed,” said Kurt Kurtis, director of Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s fall production “Sordid Lives.” “It reminds you of ‘Mama’s Family’ and ‘Steel Magnolias’ meets ‘Jerry Springer.’”

DNACA: ‘Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom’

Philadelphia-born Kim and Reggie Harris bring their “Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom” to Crescent City next Friday.
 Next Friday, Nov. 13, the Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness presents the second performance of its 33rd season, featuring Kim and Reggie Harris in a program of “Songs of Joy, Hope and Freedom.”

Holiday events: Taste of Holidays

The Redwood Parks Association has run out of tickets for its annual Candlelight Walk.  

As folks put away their jack-o-lanterns and start planning their Thanksgiving menus, they should leave room in their schedule for a plethora of community events celebrating the holidays.

One event, Del Norte Sunrise Rotary’s Taste of the Holidays, will be held Saturday at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds. And tickets are going fast — possibly selling out by today — for another event, the Redwood Parks Association’s annual candlelight walk held at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park in December.

Firefighting volunteer for five decades

Janice Wyatt, a 49-year-Gasquet resident, was a volunteer firefighter in the 1960s and 1970s, has spent time as a fire lookout, including when the Biscuit Fire started, and she aided wildfire suppression efforts this year at Gasquet Airport. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
 Janice Wyatt gave an enthusiastic yes when her boss asked if she would help with the Gasquet Complex Fires.

But using a clicker to count folks on their way to dinner wasn’t what she had in mind.

“I was just bored to death,” she said. “My boss says ‘You’re not very happy are you?’ And I said, ‘No, I want to do something.’”

Halloween fun

 Adults and kids both got into the Halloween spirit Saturday, some donning black pointy hats while others impersonated their favorite video game or movie characters. With both the Family Resource Center and Del Norte County Library hosting spooky activities, there was no shortage of fun things to do.
