Parents spend time on carrier

Barlow Family. Submitted Photo
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.

Quilt tour a success, says organizer

Thank you to everyone that participated in the first ever City-wide Quilt Show: those entering their quilts, for the many contributions and donations, to the businesses that allowed quilts to be hung in their windows and for everyone’s time and energy, particularly my husband, Doug Westfall. Glad we survived our first event.

The mistakes: tickets prices were too high and most people didn’t take advantage of the bus. 

Tourists came through our show from as far away as San Diego and Portland. Posters worked, as many people mentioned them.

The Lighthouse Quilt Guild Show held at the fairgrounds had between 350-400 people in attendance. We don’t have stats on the Elk Valley Casino show held in its Bingo Room, but the 24 quilts that hung there received good reviews.

Pat McGee and staff at Elk Valley Casino were extremely gracious. The star of that venue was local attorney Ferman Sims’ queen-sized batik quilt.
