New church groups form in Del Norte

There are two bright spots of color next to my driveway that have been greeting me for the past two weeks whenever I return home — stately red tulips, way earlier than usual. In fact, the rest still seem to be sleeping. Another of those “surprises” I got from the plant kingdom — that whole bag of tulips was supposed to be pastels.

Del Norters may recognize Rick Bennett from his work on the College of the Redwoods Board of Trustees, with the county historical society or the Ruby Van Deventer Wildflower Show.

But folks visiting the courthouse will see a side the longtime Gasquet resident hasn’t shown in quite some time.

Vanda Reichlin was prepared.

She had her cake, her paddles, a beverage and at least $70 in quarters, both piled in front of her and stacked neatly in six rolls.

“I bid on everything,” she said.

Airing a voice for Del Norte’s disabled

David Falkenberg says he was skeptical when Rene Quintana approached him about going on the radio. Now a month later, Falkenberg is comfortable with the microphone and says he’s “the voice for the disabled.”

“I know a lot about being disabled,” he said, adding that he has lived with a learning disability since childhood. “We want to be part of the community."

Falkenberg, whose on-air name is “The Sand Man,” is part of a new radio program called "Client College." The show airs 8–10 a.m. Thursdays and focuses on the issues and concerns of people with physical and mental disabilities.

Editor’s note: This is the first installation of a new regular column by Jennifer Henion about dog care. Henion owns Red Rover Ranch, which provides day care and boarding for dogs at the Del Norte Couny Fairgrounds in Crescent City.

In my life as dog keeper at Red Rover Ranch, I spend a lot of time learning about dogs and how they think and operate. Luckily, it’s my favorite topic. It’s also my favorite hobby. When I’m not at work, I compete in AKC hunt tests and field trials with my golden retrievers. I’m always in training mode and researching the best methods to communicate with my dogs to form a great team in the field as well as in the house.
