4-H: Clubs attend rabbit, cavy convention

The Del Norte County 4-H column runs monthly. This installment was written by Christine Jones.

On June 7 4-H members from Wild River, Pine Grove and Giddy Up ’N’ Goat 4-H clubs headed up the road to Roseburg to attend the annual Oregon League of Rabbit and Cavy Breeders’ state  convention. In the past the shows have started on Saturday morning. This year the Western Frontier Rabbit and Cavy Shows held a benefit show on Friday night. 


Vaping: Too big of a hit

Today’s The Redwood Voice is written by Lydia Anderson, 16, a student at Castle Rock and College of the Redwoods.

A bright, colorful shop called “High Tide Vapes” recently opened on Northcrest Drive in Crescent City. Owners David and Susan Gearhart transplanted their business from Puyallup, Wash., to Crescent City to be part of what they consider an emerging market in northern California: e-cigarettes or “vapes.”

Have you ever tackled the craft of making your own mustard? 

It’s one of the most loved condiments found at the grocery store, but like anything really delicious, it is even better when you make it homemade.  You can customize it with various flavored vinegars, herbs, spices, beers, caramelized onions or even berries. Wasabi or horseradish are perfect additions for those who like things really hot.

Stepping into Virginia Stennett’s living room is like stepping into an aviary; only the noise is missing.

Pheasants, quail, geese, mallards and wood ducks paddle, waddle and fly along Virginia Stennett’s walls. Each belongs to her husband, Robert Stennett, but instead of feathers, these birds show off the luster and grain of the wood he used to create them.
