Church Notebook: Things moving along as God intended

It wasn’t the coco loco.

The birds of summer

 Those weird-looking creatures? Summer is when many fledglings appear and songbirds go quiet to rearing theirs

In the last column about spring migration I mentioned that in June birders would be looking for small songbirds like warblers, vireos and flycatchers from the east that get lost during migration. Well, several of these were found. First a least flycatcher appeared in the Smith River riparian area along Bailey Road near Fort Dick, then a red-eyed vireo was singing in the cottonwoods along the Klamath River in Klamath Glen. One thing led to another, and while enjoying the beautiful song of the red-eyed, a plumbeous vireo started singing in the same area, which was only the third record of this species in the county. Two eastern warblers also showed up here, a black-and-white and a chestnut-sided warbler. Finding one rare bird somewhere sometimes leads to more rare birds being found in the same area, simply because the area gets more coverage because of that rare bird being there and, consequently, more attention is paid to other birds there.

Hello hello hello you hagglin’ hound dogs! The Garage Sale Review, your go to guide to the dog-eat- dog world of yard sales and the brazen souls who choose to navigate it is back, and this week we’re going rogue. “Rogue!?” you might be screaming at your newspaper, desperate to know what I could possibly mean, fearing the worst, but also maybe feeling a little juiced up because “going rogue” can be such a mischievously fun thing to do. Well, faithful readers, settle down for a moment and I’ll explain.

Happy families? Not always, each in its own way

The Accidental Family is a monthly column about the story of two young women and the Del Norte family that adopted them. This week’s column is written by parent Ruth Rhodes.

Leo Tolstoy’s novel Anna Karenina famously begins with the line, “Happy families are alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Tolstoy then goes on to tell us just how unhappy the Oblonsky family is and why.
