Drew Morrison, a senior at Del Norte High School, has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest rank awarded to a Scout.

Drew completed all the requirements for his Eagle Scout rank Sept. 17 with an Eagle Scout Board of Review.

He joined Scout Troop 77 on Nov. 20, 2001, at the age of 11. He rose through the ranks from Tenderfoot to Star fairly quickly, and then proceeded to earn his Life rank with some side trips along the way. Then he began to work at earning his Eagle Scout, which involves an Eagle Scout project, as well as at least 21 Merit Badges.

Woman’s family celebrates

Bernice Brustol with a couple of her friends. Submitted Photo
Bernice Brustol turned 96 years old on Jan. 12. She was born in Green Bay, Wis., in 1913. She married Walter Ducat in her late teens and worked as a metal cutter in a shipyard. Over the next 20 years, Bernice and Walter had six children.

In 1945, the family moved to Richmond, where Walter worked at the Mare Island shipyard. It wasn't an easy trip on the roads of the day, in an old car, with the five children who weren't yet grown. At one point Bernice hung over the fender of the car, slowly pouring gasoline into the carburetor while Walter drove for several miles across the Great Salt Lake Desert in July.

Seeking both a safer place to raise their family and work that would pay better, the Ducat family moved to Klamath Falls, Ore., where Walter worked in sawmills. Bernice walked miles each day to work in restaurants. Eventually the family moved back to Wisconsin to be near aging parents. They bought a dairy farm and settled into farm life.

Free Pap tests offered later this month

January is National Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. In recognition of this, the Open Door Community Health Centers and LabCorp will provide free Pap tests for the fifth year in a row for the women of Humboldt and Del Norte counties during the week of Jan. 26-30. 

No one will be turned away;  women who are not eligible for financial assistance through the Cancer Detection Program or Family Planning will receive a Pap test at no cost, regardless of insurance, income or citizenship status.
Pap tests are used to screen for the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), which is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States, affecting approximately 20 million people. There are over 6 million new cases of HPV each year. Most women who are infected with HPV do not have any symptoms.

 Females should have routine pap tests within three years of becoming sexually active or when they reach 21 years of age, whichever comes first.  Latina women, in particular, have the highest risk of developing cervical cancer from HPV.

The Pap tests will be offered at the following Open Door locations:

Del Norte Community Health Center, 550 E. Washington Blvd., Crescent City, 465-6925
Eureka Community Health Center, 2412 Buhne, Eureka, (707) 441-1624
Humboldt Open Door Community Health Center, 770 10th St., Arcata, (707) 826-8610
