Del Norte People: Feeling like a kid in a candy store

I’m sure that as youngsters we have had the opportunity to go to candy stores or candy sections at a store. Looking at all the goodies behind the glass on the counters certainly looks inviting to the participants. Now comes the time to choose what sweet morsel to buy.

As I have matured into later life, I relate to the kid in the candy store with an attitude of life as we live it. You can take each day as “blasé” or boring, or better yet, enter into the world of a candy store with brightly colored and sweet goodies transmitting to our system a great day, a great time and total enjoyment.

Grist for the Mill: A foodie's winter reading list

We’ve turned on our heat a few times over the past couple weeks. Waves of rain are replenishing our water supplies. Food Day was disrupted (but not canceled) by our first major power outage of the year. Winter is coming, and soon. 

It seems like a good time to chat about books.  

Cookbooks and food memoirs seem like natural companions for an afternoon in front of a wood stove. Curling up to soup and bread recipes or stories of a life in food might make you hungry, but will also feed your soul.

Church Notebook: A busy time of year

My front yard is awash in yellow. I knew I was hearing some wind early Thursday morning, but I guess it was blowing harder than I thought. There had been a few colorful maple leaves dancing about the past few days, but Thursday morning when I went out to get my Triplicate, I found a carpet of yellow. Pretty enough, but soon they will all be gone.

God knows better than we do about what to save and what to discard — just ask my daughter, as she shakes her head and wonders why I have saved this or that — and I realize I have become my grandmother after all! While we have to look at stuff and ponder which stays and what goes, God just sends the wind and rain and cleans things up.

Santa's Helpers

As Del Norters begin their holiday shopping, mitten-decked trees will soon appear at local businesses encouraging the community to pitch in for children who are less fortunate.

Rural Human Services is gearing up for its annual Santa’s Workshop project and is reminding low-income families to sign up their children. Supported by the community, the program gives toys and clothing to girls and boys ages 0–15, said RHS Special Projects Coordinator and workshop “Head Elf” Ron Phillips.

Savor the season’s flavors

A feast for the senses: bountiful fare awaits diners at Taste of the Holidays, planned for this Saturday in Crescent City. Del Norte Triplicate file
More than 10 local restaurateurs and food producers will show off their finest seasonal treats at Del Norte Sunrise Rotary’s Taste of the Holidays fundraiser on Saturday.

This will be Sunrise Rotary’s eighth annual Taste of the Holidays, said club president Fran McNamara. The event will be held at the Crescent City Cultural Center.

Local artists featured at new gallery

There’s a new art gallery in Del Norte County, catering to fiber art fanatics as well as those who are looking for unique, inexpensive gifts and fine art.

Located just below the Oregon border, the McMillen Art Gallery & Fiber Arts Studio will open its doors for a ribbon-cutting at 4:30 p.m. Friday and will be holding a special holiday grand opening event throughout the weekend.

Giving shelter year-round

Domestic Violence Awareness Month highlights efforts to help victims 

Harrington House wrapped up another Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Friday, but the work the shelter’s staff does lasts all year.

For nearly 20 years, Harrington House has provided a safe haven for women and children escaping abusive relationships. The staff also provide a helping hand from guiding women, and men, through the legal process of obtaining a restraining order to helping them access services if they are a member of a Native American tribe.
