Traditional Eel

Read more...Yurok host first annual Kee Kyah Eel Roast

Gaze on this low-carb and protein-rich seasonal favorite. It’s dripping with vitamins, minerals, and healthy omega 3. It’s as local as they come. It is delicious. 

But a flash-in-the-pan food fad this is not; the Yurok have harvested Pacific lamprey for as long as they have kept quarters on the Klamath. Each winter, between salmon runs, the eel-like boneless fish reach the river’s mouth, where Yurok fishermen wait with woven baskets and hooks. 

This year marks the first “Kee Kyah Eel Roast,” where locals and interlopers alike packed the reservation’s Visitor Center Sunday afternoon for fish freshly cooked across the road over an open grill. 

Whale of a view

Alan Justice didn’t need binoculars Tuesday to glimpse the broad back of a gray whale off Brother Jonathan Point.

Within minutes of arriving at the foot of Ninth Street, he spotted three whales foraging in front of the largest rock just offshore from the vista point. But since the cetaceans are often further out to sea, binoculars make it easier to view them as they make their way north to Alaska, he said. A cloudless sky and calm waters help, too.

Church Notebook: Palm Sunday kicks off holy week

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. It marks the beginning of the week that concludes with the crucifixion of Jesus, and the basis of the Christian faith.

On that day, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, to shouts of praise and the waving of palm branches. Just a few short days later, they would shout “Crucify him!”

Art in Public Places

The new Art in Public Places exhibit in the Del Norte County Courthouse is “Student Art from Inside II,” containing works from students in the Arts-in-Corrections program at Pelican Bay State Prison. In addition to 19 colorful paintings and drawings, the show includes two photographs of the guitar classes and five short written pieces by inmates, as well as teaching artists’ statements from Cecelia Holland (creative writing), Julie McNeil (visual arts) and Dale Morgan (guitar/music).  The courthouse is at 450 H St., Crescent City, and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays except for state holidays. For more information, call DNACA at 464-1336.

The 3rd-annual Tsunami Safe Days Art Walk will feature works from Nan Marie Wineinger, photographers Bryant Anderson and Rick Hiser and others. Ukulele player Jenny Rosa from Hawaii will provide live music at the Gallery of Arts and Culture.

The bright yellow blossoms on a Scotch broom plant may be a harbinger of spring for some, but it is bad news for the threatened Oregon silverspot butterfly.

Conservation groups from Del Norte and Humboldt counties are seeking volunteers Saturday as they continue efforts to remove the invasive plant from the coastal area near Lake Earl. The third-annual Broom Bash helps restore habitat for the western dog violet, the host plant for the Oregon silverspot butterfly.

Cory's People: Worthy of recognition as a veteran

Captain Sua Phia Lo in 1966.
He lives a long way from his roots in Laos. Hmong are known as “mountain people.” Living in a sprawling, ranch style house in Crescent City with extended family, his homeland is now near the Pacific Ocean. He doesn’t speak English. He is deaf due to a bomb exploding near him, causing his ears to bleed. But that was a long time ago.
