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.

Of seals and sea lions

From harbor docks to faraway rocks, marine mammals grace North Coast 

As warmer weather arrives, North Coast beaches and docks become more crowded, and not just with people.

Whether in Crescent City Harbor, or at one of the sandy coves off Pebble Beach Drive, visitors to North Coast beaches should expect to see a variety of marine mammals, and possibly their pups.

“People need to stay half a football field away from beached marine mammals,” said local veterinarian and Marine Mammal Center Director Dennis Wood. “Any closer and they run the risk of creating a situation where we have to rescue the animal.”

Wood is not just referring to pups.
