Fresh charges at NMMC

Volunteers Dina Hernandez, Janet Dicky and Marie Duffy measure a northern elephant seal.
It took the combined efforts of Janet Dickey, Dina Hernandez and Marie Duffy on Thursday to welcome their newest charge to the Northcoast Marine Mammal Center.

Even with Hernandez straddling its upper body and Duffy near its tail, the northern elephant seal tried to wriggle away from Dickey, who was waiting to take a blood sample. 

“It’s like riding a sea slug,” Hernandez joked.

Church Notebook: With Easter behind us, Passover, Motherís and Fatherís days ahead

What a beautiful day Thursday was. Though I realize we need all the rain we can get, it was so nice to see the sun and feel it’s warmth.

For the first time in a long time, I was able to take a thorough tour through my yard, checking on roses and apple trees, irises, tulips, freesias and all those extra little things to be pulled up.

Mystery's mosquito

Adventurers at Trees of Mystery will soon find an addition to the Trail of Tall Tales — a mosquito capable of taking on a certain 49-foot-tall lumberman and his blue ox.

The giant bug stands five feet off the ground, has a length of more than 12 feet and weighs 390 pounds. Its creator, Ray Marshall, owner of Marshall Arts near South Beach, loaded the insect onto a truck last Tuesday and delivered it to the Klamath attraction Wednesday.

“It’s bigger than the mosquitos in Texas and Alaska,” Marshall said. “This one will take you home and feed you to its kids.”

Local advocates for children will focus on family and community and how they can prevent child abuse and neglect.

Del Norte’s Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) will highlight resources available to children and families at its annual flag raising and candlelight vigil Friday at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds. The flag and candlelight vigil remind that April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“Our goal this year is to make (the vigil) a little bit more positive about what are the resources available in our community and what is being done,” said Christine Slette, executive director of CASA of Del Norte, and treasurer of CAPC. “This year we actually invited a foster parent to come and talk about her experience.”

Cory's People: Making the well-traveled world a better place

She thinks our coastline is one of the prettiest places on earth. Which is saying a lot considering she was raised in Massachusetts, lived on four of the Hawaiian islands and has traveled to Alaska, Switzerland, Southeast Asia, and the Caribbean.

Her piercing green eyes, gentle voice, and comforting presence is at least partly why she’s so successful in her work as the director of Del Norte’s Health and Human Services. I’m fairly certain it’s no small feat overseeing five departments. She compassionately assists our county’s most at-need residents, but that’s just her day job. What brings her the most solace amongst the potential chaos is rescuing farm animals, cows being her favorite (but she says she’ll rescue “just about anything if it’s in distress”).

Barbara Pierson is one of those people who works hard to make the world a better place.
