Less than 10 minutes from downtown Crescent City’s beaches and just a mile or two from the nearest redwood grove lies another of California’s coastal gems, this one a bit more off the beaten path. Tolowa Dunes State Park contains the West Coast’s largest lagoon outside of Alaska and the state’s northernmost sand dunes, in addition to incredible diversity in plants and animals throughout its 11,000 acres. 

“We all know about the redwood parks. People come from all over the world for the redwood parks, but this is an equally special place in its own way,” explained Susan Calla, a volunteer with the Tolowa Dunes Stewards. “Ancient trees — these are ancient dunes.”

Church Notebook: Reminded of the power of prayer

“The best laid plans …”

It doesn’t pay to get too confident about things. I don’t think the Lord likes for us to do that, and when we do, sometimes he reminds us just who is in control.

A couple weeks ago, I was confidently looking forward to getting my other hip replaced. After all, I had a fantastic recovery from the one in December, and why shouldn’t recovery be exactly the same this time?

Smith River School’s band has received national recognition, which enabled them to enter a video contest showcasing the school’s commitment to music.

Smith River School was one of 96 schools nationwide to receive the Support Music Merit Award from the National Association of Music Merchants, or NAMM. The school’s zombie video, “Music Never Dies,” was selected as the winner in NAMM’s “What Makes Music Education Great in My School or District” contest. As a result, the band will participate in a national webcast and will host the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, music teacher Marshall Jones said.

Senior Sleuth: Community turns out for ping pong

Continuing my coverage of the ping pong program at the St. Joseph Catholic Church gym, Third and E Street, I can report that we’re off to a great start. We’ve got five tables so far, and we meet 3–6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday until the end of August. Due to the growing popularity of the program, we could use more tables if anyone wants to donate a table they’re not using. 

We are continuing to expand, and we would like to extend an invitation to parents to bring their teens and for grandparents to bring their teen grandchildren. The regulations limit participation to players 18 and older, as well as players under 18 who are accompanied by a parent or other adult. I believe the inclusion of mature young people would add a lot to the tournament that we are going to hold at the end of August.
