Christmas Tree ID

Thunderheads gathered over the Siskiyou Mountains as we headed up French Hill Road near Gasquet last week. The wind moaned ominously, sending creatures great and small one clear message: Get back to your holes while you still can. 

But we couldn’t turn back, not yet. Not after such a long, still unfulfilled day of searching for the perfect Christmas tree in Siskiyou National Forest. 

Whether this tree’s perfection would stem from its intrinsic qualities — or simply from our burning desire to cut it down, put it inside the house and adorn it in electric lights — was not something we had time to ponder before dusk. 

Church Notebook: The last laugh isn’t the best

As this is written each week Thursday night after Bible study at my church, sometimes the study reminds me of a lesson learned. This week, it was that he who laughs last does not laugh best.

The theme this week was about complaining and grumbling, and there was a comment about judging others.

Madrigals: Hosts of Christmas Past

Del Norte High School’s Madrigals and Women’s Chamber Ensemble are going to go medieval this weekend and are inviting the community along for the ride.

The students will dress as medieval nobility and will serve the “peasants” dinner, said high school music director Dan Sedgwick. The royals will also entertain the peasants with songs and small-group entertainment, including a performance of traditional renaissance music on recorders.

Drive-Thru Christmas, Trees 
of Mystery are sights to see 

Last year the Del Norte High School girls softball team turned the fairgrounds into a wonderland of color and light and with the community’s help they hope to do the same this year.

Varsity and JV softball players and coaches will put on the second-annual Drive-Thru Christmas light show at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds 6–9 p.m. starting Monday and continuing every night through Christmas Eve.

Trees All Aglow

The Redwood Parks Association's 25th annual Candlelight Walk drew a more than 400 visitors to Prairie Creek State Park on Saturday evening for an enchanting nighttime stroll through old-growth redwoods lit only by luminaria lining the trail and the occasional handheld candle or flashlight.

Del Norter’s care packages to troops in war zones made a difference, former soldier says  

Every other week for two years, Chris Anthony, a sergeant in the U.S. Army, received a box — a glimpse of home in the desert and mountains of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Anthony, who left the Army about four years ago and is now a private security contractor working in Afghanistan, took the time Friday to honor Jan Martin, who spearheaded Del Norte County Troop Support, which sent care packages to soldiers overseas. Anthony also recognized volunteers Yvonne Maciel, Helen Dewey, Nancy Smith and Gerry Rance.

Del Norte People: Blessed by company of woodcutters

Longtime Del Norte County resident Chuck Blackburn’s column appears monthly.

Each month in my semi-retirement it has been a delight to sit down and choose a topic to write about for the “Trip.” 

I have felt blessed in life for all the experiences that God has provided me in so many ways. As I was introduced to the county and the Klamath at age 13 as a seasonal dock boy, it gave me a chance to experience logging, fishing, agriculture and other facets of a rural area. It was exciting for me to see what makes this area “tick” and to watch so many hard-working men make a living, nor can I forget the role of hardworking women, many of them mothers. I still feel that excitement today.
