Hot Buttered Rum headlines Wild Rivers Music Festival

Hot Buttered Rum headlines the Wild Rivers Music Festival in Brookings on Saturday. Submitted
A decade of performing at big festivals across the U.S. has transformed Hot Buttered Rum from an acoustic string band into a plugged-in, percussive powerhouse that wows critics and fans alike with its mix of upbeat jamgrass, rock, folk and Americana.

The San Francisco-based quintet will headline the July 2 Wild Rivers Music Festival, scheduled from noon to 9 p.m. at Brookings’ Azalea Park. The event also features local food and microbrews.

If there is anyone in Del Norte who knows the value of amateur radio in an emergency, it’s 91-year-old George Rankins.

Rankins was a member of the Del Norte Amateur Radio Club and ran the amateur radio club at Del Norte High School when the Good Friday tsunami struck in 1964. As soon as he heard the sirens, he flipped on his radio and received this message: “George, you need to get the radio car and get down here.”

He’s been off and on homeless since he was 28. Now that he’s 59, it’s a harder row to hoe. 

He’s a man of few words; a man who mostly likes to keep to himself. Like many who live a nomadic lifestyle, he’s lived in more cities and states than I can fit in my column. They partially include Santa Fe, New Mexico; Port Washington, Wisconsin; Needles, California; and Lincoln, Nebraska, where he was born.

She goes by many names and she’s always in front.

When four runners brought her out from Chickaloon, Alaska on May 1, she carried three feathers. One came from an eagle, another from a macaw and the third from a condor.
