Around Del Norte: Roofing the next big project for LRT

Joan Buhler, vice president of the Lighthouse Repertory Theatre, stopped by the Triplicate the other day for a chat about the status of the future site of its performance center.

Besides a new exterior paint job, a lot of work has been going on inside of the old Red’s Twin Cinema on G Street, which was acquired by LRT in 2009.

“We’re making progress, even though it’s not very visible from the outside,” said Joan, who is also the building project manager. “It’s going to be visible when they start working on a new roof.”

Stone Roofing has been contracted by LRT to tackle the job.

“It’s squishy now,” said Joan, “so there’s two or three layers of roofing.” And perhaps an accumulation of dampness, she added.

Red’s was built in 1952 on one of the few downtown blocks between Third and Fourth streets to stay dry during the 1964 tsunami. That doesn’t mean the aging building hasn’t had its problems with moisture, however.

“The cement block is very porous,” she said of the building’s structure. “Water was coming in on the south side.

Hundreds of people turned out for the annual Del Norte County 4-H Soup Supper and Country Auction on Saturday night at the county fairgrounds. The event kicked off National 4-H Week, which runs through Saturday, and celebrated 100 years of 4-H in Del Norte. It is the only county-wide 4-H fundraiser here, and proceeds help with scholarships, travel programs, community service projects and county awards.


Senior Sleuth: Working wonders at Jordan Recovery

Editor’s note: The Senior Sleuth column will be published every two weeks.

First, let me introduce myself.

My name is Joan Miles. I recently resigned from my ESL (English as a Second Language) teaching position at College of the Redwoods. During my five years there, I taught English to students of more than 10 different ethnicities: Korean, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Hispanic, etc.

Dr. Bob Sankus, a retired physician, and I (ages 81 and 78, respectively) are senior citizens on the lookout for organizations, groups and individuals who contribute greatly to the community, especially in the areas of health, healing, nutrition, fitness, drug prevention and recovery. 

Perhaps you have seen an activity in the Community Calendar that you might want to learn more about. Or maybe you would like to submit information about some beneficial activity or individual that we don’t hear much about. Please let us know.

To start the ball rolling, I want to praise Sandi Morrison, director of Jordan Recovery and Humboldt Addictive Services Program (1231 Northcrest Drive, 464-7849).

HASP is one of the most effective of all the groups of any kind in Crescent City.  We need to hear much more about the work they do. In early September, Bob and I had a long interview with Sandi and then a couple of days later, we sat in on a two-hour group therapy session, which was attended by 10 men in her program.

Pear pastry tarts easy but elegant

We’re now into my favorite time of year. The weather cools down and baking can begin again.

I love pies and tarts, but I’m dreading the time it takes to make them, especially with a small baby to raise.

So, I thought I’d share a recipe that comes together quite easily and yet can be very elegant at a brunch or for dessert. I’m fairly certain this recipe could be adapted to use apples as well as pears.

For cooks who have the time, here’s a recipe to make your own puff pastry from scratch:


If the pears you are using are juicy and soft you can make these without first poaching the pears.

Pear Puff Pastry Tarts


2 pears, peeled, halved and cored, but leave stem on
