The little things: Cross orbweaver

Read more... The not-so-little spider responsible for the web you walked through this morning was most likely this guy — the Cross Orbweaver (Araneus diadematus).

A.k.a. the European Garden Spider, Cross Spider, Diadem Spider, Garden Spider or Garden Cross Spider, it’s one of the most well-known spiders in the world. Your European cousins are probably wiping the 2010 European Spider of the Year’s web off their face and checking their hair and clothes for the architect even as you read this.

Del Norters know to start ducking about this time of year as these spiders and their intricate traps are strung seemingly on every available structure. The actual orb of the web can be as much as two feet in diameter with tether lines of six feet or more. Fake webs and spiders for Halloween? In Del Norte we use the real thing.

Area churches getting ready for harvest festivals

October is half gone already. Before we know it chilly winds and, hopefully, plenty of rain will usher in the final holidays of the year. If they continue more like an average year, that could be the best Christmas gift of all.

When it comes to Halloween, opinions are mixed, and our churches have varying ideas on what should or should not be done. There will be various events, usually called Harvest Festivals, with programs to entertain kids and encourage them not to be out in the streets.

Whatever your feeling on the matter, there is one big factor we all need to participate in— the one that keeps them safe.

Workshops, film, tasting at fifth annual Food Day

Local food will take center stage Saturday at Community Food Council’s fifth-annual Food Day event.

The day will kick off with a pancake breakfast featuring local eggs, flour, butter, jams and honey. The Food Council will then host a series of do-it-yourself workshops on topics ranging from backyard chickens to growing your own mushrooms.

Food Day will conclude with a screening of the film “Growing Local,” which focuses on the growing pains of the local food movement. The screening will also include a series of small plate tastings prepared by Requa Inn chef Thomas Wortman. Each course will be related to a segment of the film, said Angela Glore, food programs director for Building Healthy Communities, which helps staff the Food Council.

Spc. Jordan Lacy, a combat medic working at Bassett Army Community Hospital at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, didn’t win any titles in the competition, which was held last week at the Asymmetric Warfare Group compound at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, according to Taliah Miller, media relations specialist with Encompass Digital Media. 

Little survivor needs help

 James Blodgett made headlines at just 5 months old when he stopped breathing on his way to the hospital in April.

Thanks to school bus driver David Webb, who administered the CPR that kept the infant alive, James is taking his first tentative steps at nearly 13 months old. 

But because of a seizure disorder, James and his family are constantly in and out of hospitals and clinics. They are reaching out to the community for help with health and travel expenses as well as groceries, car maintenance, bills and safety precautions for their home.
