Anna Deavere Smith’s journey to understand the role race, inequality and poverty plays in the school-to-prison pipeline took her to Baltimore, Philadelphia, Oakland and Stockton.

The actress and playwright spoke with students, teachers, parents, judges, community activists and hundreds of others for her latest work, the Pipeline Project. But traveling to the Yurok Reservation to speak with its residents was like going to a foreign country, she said.

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.”
