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.

Requa Inn joins ‘Stay List’

The Historic Requa Inn, a 10-room bed and breakfast in Klamath, was included in National Geographic Traveler magazine’s Stay List for 2009.

The list includes 129 hotels in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean that create a “sense of place.”  

“The hotels on our Stay List 2009 don’t just reflect their surroundings, they help define them,” the article states. “What they all have in common is a transcendent vision that goes beyond traditional hotel-keeping.  This mindset is what gives these hotels their special sense of place.”  

To create the list, Traveler asked “veteran journalists, inveterate road warriors, and local experts” to nominate their favorite hotels based on key criteria.

They were asked, “Is the hotel engaged with the local community? Does it subscribe to sustainable practices that respect the region? Does it truly capture the spirit of its setting?”

Further research and detailed questionnaires winnowed hundreds of submissions down to  129 hotels.

The story was featured in the April issue of National Geographic Traveler.

The Requa Inn is owned and operated by David and Barbara Gross. The couple bought the inn in 2002.
