The Teen Life Choices group has two goals.

The first is to educate students regarding the negative risk factors of teen alcohol and drug use, and the second goal is to provide fun, positive, alternative skill building activities.

Thus far, the students have traveled to a Native American art show at the Westhaven Gallery in Trinidad, and have been to a live theater production of Jagun Fly at Humboldt State University.

The attached photo shows the students participating in a homemade pizza cooking lesson generously provided by Vita Cucina owners Devon and Michelle Morgante.

Future plans include a teen community barbeque, a trip to the newly refurbished Crescent City swimming pool, and a teen dance.

Junior Rangers

I wanted to share these photos taken April 15 of Emma, 6, and Phoebe, 11, taking their Junior Ranger pledges to preserve and protect our country’s national park lands while at the White House President’s Park in Washington, D,C.

I believe the Junior Ranger program is a great way to become active learners in our nation's most treasured national parks, monuments and historical sites. 

As homeschoolers at Castle Rock, we have been able to visit many places near and far to learn firsthand about the unique natural, cultural and historical treasures of our nation.

Bus allows Crescent City woman to meet 3-year-old grandson

Josephine Fromm of Crescent City has never seen her 3-year-old grandson, Ryan. But that’s about to change, thanks in part to the new Southwest POINT bus service.

A mother of 10 boys and one girl, all grown, 67-year-old Fromm lives on Social Security. Her youngest son, Jessie Westeagle Quarles, and Fromm’s grandson, Ryan, live in Alturas, on the eastern side of the Cascades, some 280 miles from Crescent City. Until recently, that distance kept the family apart.

“There just wasn’t any way for me to get from Crescent City to Alturas,” Fromm said. “Now, with the Southwest Point that goes to Klamath Falls, I can catch a bus from there to Alturas.”

Fromm read about the new service in The Daily Triplicate and shared her story with the newspaper. Soon, Fromm had a complimentary ticket for a trip from Crescent City to Klamath Falls and back as part of the new service “kickoff” celebration. From Klamath Falls, she’ll take the Sage Stage to Alturas and back.

One 3-year-old in particular is very excited to meet his grandmother.

Mill Creek restoration under way

Those who have hiked, biked or spent time in the Mill Creek Addition know that it is someplace special.

But they may not know how special.

Redwood National and State Parks and the Save the Redwoods League have devoted a portion of the addition to a restoration program that seeks to create old-growth forest out of previously harvested and replanted tracks.

The 25,000-acre Mill Creek Addition was acquired in 2002 by the Save the Redwoods League with a coalition of conservation partners.

Search nets over 3,800 cigarette butts

On March 13, sixth grade students from Crescent Elk Middle School put their investigation skills to work and recovered 3,879 cigarette butts around Sutter Coast Hospital.

Grant Scholes, the Sutter Coast Hospital public relations officer, invited the students to the hospital and added the incentive of paying the students 5 cents for every cigarette butt found.

The students were divided into four teams, with each team having a leader who was responsible for keeping the kids in a search pattern and documenting the number of butts collected. The search lasted for approximately one hour and afterwards the students were provided lunch by the hospital staff.

The students considered this a Community Work Service Project in coordination with the Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Branch, Tobacco Use Prevention Program and opted to donate the money to the Crescent City Police Department’s K-9 Program.  This was a win-win opportunity whereby the hospital was able to raise awareness of the litter caused by cigarettes, and the students being invited back to tour the hospital and obtain ideas of future careers in the community.
