Thanks Jan. 7, 2014

Praise given when due

When something displeases me, I am quick to say so. But I am just as quick to give praise when that is due, as it was recently. I had just gotten back from my credit union, after dreading to even have to go there. The rain was miserable, and doing business on the first day of the month is usually a nightmare of long lines and grumpy people. And since they were closed recently, I fully expected a most unpleasant experience, standing in a long line in pain and aggravation, berating myself for using my cane instead of the walker, which has a seat.

Dredging unearths historical anchors

This anchor, one of several that were raised to the surface last summer in Crescent City Harbor, appears to be the type that was most popular from 1850 to 1880. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
They date back to a time when steamships visited here in the 1800s; harbor now plans to display them

Pieces of Crescent City Harbor’s history were salvaged from the port’s muddy depths last summer, and the harbor district is making plans to showcase the ancient anchors.

They were found during dredging of more than 170,000 cubic yards of material from the outer boat basin using a clam-shell scoop.

Most of the anchors appear to be from World War II-era military surplus, which was very common to have in the years after the war, according to harbormaster/CEO Richard Young.


Yes, there is a way around Last Chance Grade

How time has flown by since April 2011 when I approached Del Norte Triplicate Editor Richard Wiens about writing articles about this community and its people.

He knew a little about me in this community and about my book, “Kneebockers,” and had confidence that I could put out some interesting stuff. I would like to thank Rich who is now both the publisher and editor, along with his wife Laura Wiens, who helps edit my articles. “Thanks, guys.”


Happy New Year

Hey Ranger: Decking the parks

“The holly and the ivy. When they are both full grown, o
f all the trees that are in the wood. The holly bears the crown.” 

Editor’s note: The Neighbors page will return next Tuesday after a one-week holiday hiatus. In its place, we present the Hey Ranger column, which is published monthly. Today’s installment was by Susan Davis, Redwood National and State Parks ranger.

’Tis the season singing or humming traditional tunes — such as the lyrics above — while decking our halls with boughs of holly, fir, and anything else evergreen.

Holly and ivy also deck the forested halls of Redwood National & State Parks (RNSP), having become naturalized residents even though they have origins and uses from other lands. However, all is not necessarily well in their mystic woody realms.


Around Del Norte: His first haircut: Boy gives it all for Locks of Love

‘He’s excited,’ said Rek’woi’s mother. ‘He’s been looking forward to doing this’

 ’Tis better to give than receive.

Four-year-old Rek’woi Alameda did just that Friday as he experienced his first haircut — 14 inches’  worth  —  to donate to Locks of Love, a national organization that turns donated human hair into wigs for children who have lost theirs through a variety of medical diagnoses.

His father, Anthony Alameda, said his son had seen an “infomercial” on TV where a little boy had no hair due to medical treatments.

“He said he wanted to give him his hair,” said Anthony.
