Salmon Festival 2015

Salmon, vendors and stick games are just some aspects of the Yurok culture the public will experience at the Klamath Salmon Festival on Saturday. Del Norte Triplicate file
 The Yurok Tribe is sharing an important staple of their diet as well as their traditions and culture — mixed with a little rock and reggae — with the public this weekend.

The 53rd-Annual Klamath Salmon Festival includes a parade, classic cars, live music and traditional games. The theme this year is “Ecology, Economy, Community,” according to a Yurok Tribe press release.

Veterans will be treated to a free breakfast courtesy of the Klamath Chamber of Commerce. Boys and girls will also be able to compete for the Noo-rey-o-won-ee (Beautiful Girl Inside and Out)/Keet-ko (Strong/Able Boy) contest.

Meet the misunderstood dragonfly

Dragonflies take center stage Sunday at the latest nature program in the Lake Earl area.

Wildlife biologist Sandra Hunt-Von Arb will begin with a slide presentation showing the world of dragonflies, their life cycle, habitat needs and how folks can attract them to their backyard. She will also lead a fieldtrip to a nearby pond to view the dainty insects.

“Discovering Dragonflies” is sponsored by the Tolowa Dunes Stewards and the Redwood Parks Association.

During the field trip, folks will be able to see dragonflies basking in the sun and foraging for food, Hunt-Von Arb said. They’ll also be able to see them hovering over the pond. Folks may see cardinal meadowhawks, variegated meadowhawks and damselflies.

Free school supplies for DN students on Friday

Staff with the local Army recruiting center will give away school supplies to roughly 100 students Friday.

Staff sergeants Hector Pineda and Josh Opolski placed donation bins in the Dollar Tree stores in Crescent City and Harbor. They collected enough notebooks, binders, folders, pens and pencils to give out to local students on a first-come first-serve basis.

“If you come there and you’re 6 years old, you’ll get a couple of pencils, maybe a notebook to take with you,” Opolski said. “We have crayons for preschoolers and we’ve even got some coloring books in there, too.”

Grist for the mill: Sharing feeds the 'Cottage' industry

My family has a wonderful bread recipe handed down through generations we call nutty bread. There are no nuts in it, but somehow it does taste slightly nutty. It’s easy to make and it makes the best toast in the world.
