Cory's People: Doctor practices what she preaches

Her goal is to help the people of Del Norte County heal. It’s a lofty goal, yet my hunch is she’s the best person for the job. Dr. Patricia Lutfy MD, DC was a dental hygienist and massage therapist in the ’80s; a chiropractor in the ’90s, then in 2003, entered medical school at St. George’s University, located in Grenada, West Indies, graduating in 2008.

When Dr. Lutfy came to Del Norte in November for an interview, she saw the ocean and fell in love with the ruggedness of our coastline. She moved to Del Norte in January to take over as medical director of the Acute Rehabilitation Unit at Sutter Coast Hospital.

Summer academy for young adults

Young adults looking for something to do can take on projects in fields such as food and agriculture, natural resources and digital media with the Youth Training Academy this summer.

Led by the Tolowa Dee-ni’ Nation’s Community and Family Services department this year, the academy will have room for 90 youth ages 15–24.

Natíl and state parks seek senior volunteers

Some boomers may have childhood memories of visiting national and state parks on a family vacation, or a camping trip with friends. Swimming in rivers, hiking through forests, or looking for wildlife were all part of the experience. Added to that was the Visitor Center, where advice about where to go and what to see were combined with educational displays and high quality souvenirs that helped remind us of our visit to these wonderful places.  

Fortunately, these destinations still remain for our children and grandchildren to enjoy and create memories. In Humboldt and Del Norte counties, we have several national and state parks, reserves, and recreation areas to visit and enjoy. RSVP is working with the Redwood Parks Association to find volunteers who would like to help out in the various visitor centers up and down the coast.

Lighthouse gets landing pad, tours to resume

A St. George Reef Lighthouse Preservation Society work crew visited the lighthouse last month for repairs they hope will allow tours of the facility to resume by December.

This comes four years after Caltrans, the agency responsible for enforcing FAA regulations in California, informed the society that the landing pad wasn’t large enough to qualify as a commercial heliport, according to a recent press release.

Learning the ukulele

Diana Lee’s kindergartners sat quietly on the rug Thursday as Marshall Jones and his students distributed their musical instruments — ukuleles in colors ranging from natural wood to orange and green.

Paired with their young peers, Jones’ students showed them how to position their tiny fingers to create the A minor chord. Jones then asked the youngsters to pluck the bottom two strings of their instruments, recreating the dip of an oar as he led them in “My Paddle” before transitioning to the C chord and rousing renditions of “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Row Your Boat.”
