Witnesses tumult over Middle East refugees 

A Del Norte High School graduate got a taste of life in Hungary last autumn, learning the language as well as what life was like during Communist control.

Paige Van Valkenburgh, who grew up in Smith River and graduated from Del Norte in 2013, said she arrived in Budapest in September right before Hungary closed its borders to refugees from the Middle East. But while advisors at her college talked about safety precautions, the refugees weren’t dangerous and weren’t causing any problems, she said.

“They were all just trying to move forward into Germany,” Van Valkenburgh said, adding that most of the refugees were in a different part of the city. “Budapest, overall, is safe. I was never afraid of being pickpocketed. I would walk around and just feel safe there.”

Lauren Lester didn’t find the great gray owl that had local birders flocking to Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park on Thursday, it found her.

Often dubbed “the great gray ghost” and “phantom of the north,” the bird flew over Lester’s head, alighted on a stop sign three feet away and stared at her. But Lester said it didn’t seem threatened or afraid of her.

“We never saw it catch anything, but we saw it make efforts to catch something,” she said. “Maybe they think we might spook up a mouse or something and that’s why it was coming close to me. It was definitely looking at me.”
