Gray Matters: Fostering healthy lifestyles

It takes a village.

How many times have we heard this phrase? What it’s really about is remembering a basic fact of life: people need other people to live and to thrive. The Senior Village Movement is spreading like proverbial wildfire because it promises, and delivers, what many seniors are looking for: a way to live independently yet remain connected.


Church Notebook: Season reminds us to give thanks for life’s blessings

Two weeks until Thanksgiving. Another year close to being gone.

How many times do we find ourselves lamenting how fast the time seems to be going?

Virginia string band brings old-time sounds of the Blue Ridge Mountains to Crescent City

Crescent Elk Auditorium will ring with acoustic Americana roots music at its best on Saturday, Nov. 22, when The Steel Wheels takes the stage as the second performance of the season for the Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness (DNACA). 

The Steel Wheels is a dynamic four-piece string band that marries old-time musical traditions with its own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival. The band is known for its raw energy and chemistry in live performances, when the members often cluster tightly around a single microphone to present bell-clear four-part harmonies.


Classic Depression-era play on local stage

‘Glass Menagerie’ based on author’s life 

Lighthouse Repertory Theatre’s latest production is set during the Great Depression, but President Nina Burgess says its issues are just as relevant today.

LRT is tackling Tennessee Williams’ 1944 play “The Glass Menagerie.” 

Susan Daugherty stars as Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle who is trying to raise her two children during the 1930s. Siblings Luke and Katy Graves play Tom and Laura Wingfield, Amanda’s children, one an aspiring writer and the other struggling with mental issues that isolate her from the outside world. Alex Gastineau stars as the “gentleman caller” Jim O’Connor.


Senior Sleuth: Vosburg reflects on brother, Vietnam vet

Cindy Vosburg, Triplicate publisher, and Matt Durkee, editor, met with local veterans to discuss plans for Veterans Day and to talk about issues affecting Del Norte veterans. The group asked for support from the paper to cover the parade and banquet in the evening. They said, “It’s a huge thing in the community, and it’s really something you should be a part of.”

Cindy wholeheartedly agreed and said, “The Triplicate is a huge supporter of veterans. I, personally, am the daughter of a vet. I’m the wife of a vet. I’m the sister of a vet. And I’m the mother of a vet. So I’ve lived it. I’m that family. That covers from the Korean War to the current wars. And also, Matt, the editor, is an Air Force brat. He grew up in part on an Air Force base in England. You’ve got allies and friends here. We believe it’s our duty back at home to support our vets.

Del Norte People: Feeling like a kid in a candy store

I’m sure that as youngsters we have had the opportunity to go to candy stores or candy sections at a store. Looking at all the goodies behind the glass on the counters certainly looks inviting to the participants. Now comes the time to choose what sweet morsel to buy.

As I have matured into later life, I relate to the kid in the candy store with an attitude of life as we live it. You can take each day as “blasé” or boring, or better yet, enter into the world of a candy store with brightly colored and sweet goodies transmitting to our system a great day, a great time and total enjoyment.
