$250K to expand youth education programs

Del Norte County is one of 19 communities — and the only rural community in California — to receive grants designed to strengthen the safety net for young adults who have dropped out of school and are unemployed.

The Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions awarded a $50,000 grant last year to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation and the Del Norte County and Adjacent Tribal Lands Opportunity Youth Initiative to create and develop the program. 

Church Notebook: Pray for Middle East; situation is desperate

To say the least, we are living in interesting times. 

You wonder if you should continue to watch the news or shut it off. But if you shut it off, will you miss something that really matters? 

The world is crazier than ever, and it’s pretty obvious that “Satan is alive and well on Planet Earth,” as the saying goes. The latest atrocity just makes me sick — yet it is performed by a faith that claims to be one of peace. 

Poking fun at politics

Colorful comedy entertains this weekend at College of the Redwoods’ Crescent City campus

At first glance, the main character in Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s new play might bring to mind images of an older Jimmy Stewart — think “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” plus 20 years.

But this is David Mamet, not Frank Capra, and a different Mr. Smith is the star of the show.

Howard Patterson stars as President Charles Smith in LRT’s production of the 2007 play “November.” Set entirely in the Oval Office, last week’s “November” premiere marked the first time LRT has teamed up with the Chetco Pelican Players to perform in Brookings.

For their latest nature program on Sunday the Tolowa Dunes Stewards and Redwood Parks Association invite folks to take a more in-depth look at dune wildlife and habitat.

Biologist and botanist Wendell Wood will lead participants on a 4-mile hike through the dunes, showing them a hidden lake, uncovering unusual dune plant communities and meandering through a willow thicket forest where elk hide.

Tribe’s celebration includes booth on drought’s danger to salmon 

Sam Gensaw Jr. and his family began work long before the cars pulled into Klamath.

As folks gathered on the main drag for the parade that would kick off the Yurok Tribe’s 52nd annual Klamath Salmon Festival, Gensaw and his nephews were preparing the star of the show — fresh chinook salmon caught at the mouth of the river.

Gensaw said he and his father, Sam Gensaw Sr., began digging the pit at 6 a.m. With a large knife, Gensaw sliced the crimson-fleshed fish into smaller fillets; his nephews Frankie and Donovan seasoned them with salt and pepper; and Sam Gensaw Sr. skewered them on wooden stakes and stuck those into the ground to roast the salmon over open flames.

“We have two fish pits, one here and one behind Pem-Mey,” Gensaw said, referring to Klamath’s convenience store and gas station. “It takes an hour depending on the size of the fish.”

Crescent City flying under the radar no longer

Makes Chronicle’s list of low-profile ‘California beach towns to visit now’ 

The San Francisco Chronicle is urging people to visit Crescent City’s “spectacularly lonely, untamed cliffs lashed by angry waves.” Now.

The paper included Crescent City in its “15 under-the-radar California beach towns to visit now” online slideshow and features a photo of Battery Point Lighthouse. Crescent City shares billing with Humboldt County’s Shelter Cove, Marin County’s Point Reyes Station and Los Angeles County’s San Pedro.
