A Harvest Multiplied

Balancing a blue and gold macaw on your shoulder may seem counterproductive when you’re unearthing potatoes, but Camille Myers made it work.

Myers, Kelley Nolan and Karen Rath, volunteers with the Del Norte Gleaning Project, spent a muggy Thursday afternoon gathering corn, beans, potatoes and other produce from Kendal Smith’s garden off Ferndale Lane. Every now and then Myers would offer her feathered companion, McKayla, a piece of corn.

Free workshop on healthy meals for busy families

In its latest do-it-yourself workshop, the First 5 Family Resource Center on Tuesday will show families how easy it is to provide a tasty meal that’s healthy and inexpensive.

“This is for parents with kids in school,” said Connor Caldwell, a food systems coordinator for the Community Food Council of Del Norte. “For weeknight dinners.”

Church Notebook: Community is composed of multiple faiths, beliefs

Have you ever stopped  to think just how many different faiths there are? Or how many varieties even in one denomination of Protestant churches?

I’m not even sure how many different ones are here in Crescent City. I know, of course, the ones who keep in contact with me. Subtle differences, but with the same underpinning of basic belief.

Writer's Eye

As an outdoorsman who moved here three years ago to work for the newspaper, the Outdoor Writers Association of California gig held here during the past week was right up my alley.

Having started Redwood Rides, a local kayak and bike tour guide service with a longtime friend from Minnesota this summer, I was even equipped to show the writers myself what convinced me to stick around America’s Wild Rivers Coast past my soon-to-end Triplicate days.

Volunteers statewide will fan out across California’s beaches, shorelines and inland waterways Saturday to clear away the debris that has accumulated over the past year.

But Del Norte County students are getting a head start on Friday. They’ll work on Saturday and next weekend too, said Crescent Elk Middle School teacher Joe Gillespie, who has coordinated the local California Coastal Cleanup effort for more than 20 years.

Local music fest is Saturday

Three regional bands will perform a mix of blues, rock, jazz, swing, funk and a little bluegrass during Stagelights’ outdoor Community Music Showcase on Saturday, Sept. 20.

The free three-hour concert, from 1-4 p.m., is set in the idyllic grass amphitheater on private property about a mile up Cape Ferrelo Drive off Highway 101, 6 miles north of Brookings.

Ocean Air Farms opened their gates Sunday and put on a spread for the community featuring the best the farm has to offer.  

Ocean Air Farms, a 15-acre farm in Fort Dick that specializes in organic vegetables, held its annual Fall Shin Digg, featuring a lunch of pulled pork and salads and a dessert potluck.

Poet’s trials inspire work

Third-generation Japanese American poet Lawson Fusao Inada was born in Fresno, where his grandparents founded the Fresno Fish Market, his father was a dentist and his mother held a college degree in teaching.

“When I was a little kid — I had just turned 4 — we moved into the county fairgrounds,” Inada said in a recent interview. “We were there for several months — they built barracks at the fairgrounds — and then were moved by train to a camp in a swampy area in Arkansas.” 

Senior Sleuth: Harrington House joins Purple Purse Challenge

This year RHS Harrington House was chosen by the Allstate Foundation to participate in the Purple Purse Challenge, a fundraiser for domestic violence and sexual assault programs throughout the United States. The Allstate Foundation, which promotes economic independence for victims of domestic violence, joined with Crowd Rise, an online fundraising site, for this project.

Smokey the Bear, everybody’s favorite U.S. Forest Service employee, and some of his crew were able to take a break from fighting the nearby fire and attend our Berry Festival in Klamath this last Saturday. We had so much fun. 

Alex and his team from Home Depot brought little airplane constructing kits for the kids to build and then paint. It was the perfect activity to pair with the huge display of RC planes and flight simulator at another vendor’s booth, and all for free.
