Del Norte People: Adventures of traveling South Fork Road

The new Steven Bridge is one of many South Fork Road upgrades. Submitted by Chuck Blackburn
As residents of rural counties, I am sure that we have more daily adventures in our travels to our destinations. I can’t imagine what it must be like driving each day to work in a commute from, say, Santa Rose to San Francisco.

In my eight years on the Board of Supervisors, I attended many meetings outside of our area where people lived off grid, 15 miles from the mailbox. We had cell phones with antennas in our vehicles with boosters, and I could tell by the looks on the faces of some of the residents that they wondered, “Who was this alien from outer space?”

According to Wikipedia, the round table is a form of academic discussion.

Participants agree on a specific topic to discuss and debate. Each person is given an equal right to participate, because of the circular layout usually used in round table discussions. (You may have a more scintillating definition of a round table discussion.) 

Arguably, it is not necessary to have a leader.  However, the Knights of the Round Table did have King Arthur.
