Corvette Stingrays roll into town today

A group of 1963-67 Corvette Stingray owners will be pulling into Crescent City today as one of the stops on their 2009 Pacific Road Trip. 

The trip will take them from Vancouver, BC, to San Diego, and will cover approximately 2,100 miles. The group consists of eight Corvette owners with spouses or friends who met in Vancouver, BC, on Sept. 15 to start the journey south. Traveling a little more than 100 miles a day, it should take them 17 days to reach San Diego.

One of the owners started the trip in New York and will travel almost 8,100 miles when he returns. He has been logging the adventure on a Web site: www.63-67corvette.com. 

There are members from Illinois, Minnesota, Arkansas and Southern California participating in this cruise.  

During their stay in Crescent City, they will be meeting in the harbor area. Anyone wishing to view the cars is invited to stop by in the late afternoon today.  

For more information contact Mary Foote at 951-0095.

Heirloom recipes

Distinct and tasty, heirloom tomatoes an annual treat

It’s that special time of year for heirloom tomatoes.

In the late summer, before thoughts turn to pumpkins and changing leaves,  ripe heirloom tomatoes are being picked off the vine.

Some of you might already be growing heirloom tomatoes in your backyard. If not, they are available at the local farmers markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Heirloom tomatoes come in all sorts of colors and sizes. These tomatoes are grown from older varieties of seeds, hence they are “heirlooms,” explained Devon Morgante, a local chef and owner of Vita Cucina.


Parents spend time on carrier

Bill and Becky Barlow of Crescent City recently got the opportunity to spend two days aboard the USS Eisenhower with their daughter Stephanie, who is stationed on the aircraft carrier as an intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy.

Bill works at Pelican Bay and Becky is a teacher at juvenile hall, and both volunteer with our local Coast Guard Auxiliary. Stephanie is a Crescent City native.

Becky submitted these pictures and the highlights of their experience.

July 28: Met the aircraft carrier USS Eisenhower in Mayport, Fla. Watched it arrive about noon, offload about 500 people, load supplies and board over 1,000 “tigers”(parents/sib­lings/child­ren of sailors) and left the port by 4 p.m. Very quick turn around.

2009 Del Norte County Fair Winners Part 5


Owing to the large size of the list of 2009 fair winners, all of it cannot be printed in The Daily Trip­licate at one time. Look for more fair results in subsequent editions of the Trip­licate.

Bigfoot images

Del Norte accounts abound

There are those who believe there is something wild, but human-like, living in the forests of Del Norte County.

Many know it as bigfoot, but the legendary hair-covered biped has many names all over the world.

David Paulides, executive director of North America Bigfoot Search in Los Gatos, has chronicled the stories of those who claim to have seen bigfoot in his latest book, “Tribal Bigfoot.” Also included are sketches of each reported bigfoot by forensic artist Harvey Pratt.

The book includes sightings from hundreds of years ago and all over the country, but a portion of the stories come from right here in Del Norte and very close by in Humboldt, Siskiyou and Trinity counties.

One of those stories is about the most famous video footage supposedly taken of bigfoot. It was shot in October 1967 near Bluff Creek in the southeast corner of Del Norte near the border of Humboldt County.
