Family ties bound to wedding place

Mark Raymond and his wife Gina were married at Patrick Creek Lodge last week.
Jack Raymond remembers a Patrick Creek Lodge that existed before the modern highway.

Formerly known as Patrick Creek Stage Station, Raymond’s grandparents built the present lodge in 1926. His job was to keep the woodbox full since the only thing powered by electricity was the lights. 

“I remember just before the road was put in I could ride my bicycle down to Gasquet and only see about three cars, which you had to watch for on a bicycle,” Raymond said.

Albino Redwoods

Delve into the mysterious world of chimera redwoods at Trees of Mystery on June 7.
With red-barked trunks bearing limbs hundreds of feet off the ground, needles dripping with summer fog, Sequoia sempervirens appear otherworldly to many visitors.

To Thomas Stapleton, the coast redwood was a normal part of growing up in Sonoma until about 1996 in Jack London State Park when he happened upon his first albino, a normal green tree whose basal sprouts were white.

Church Notebook: Avoiding selfishness, being forgiving ensure peace

“Mine. Give it back.”

How many times as parents do we hear this between our children or perhaps a child and a playmate? And, had to remind them to share?

The concept of ownership has spawned many wars and there are more on the horizon if things don’t change. Someone wants more land or perhaps something of value belonging to someone else. And it can go from simple sibling rivalry, unless checked, to more serious situations. From what I have observed from time to time, sadly, it seems like a lot of kids aren’t being taught that principle today.

Visitors to Klamath will get to glimpse a traditional Yurok brush dance Saturday while the community’s youth and adults practice for ceremonies that will be held during the summer.

Kinetic competition Saturday

“Bite Me” makes the rounds at the Arcata Plaza during the 2014 Kinetic Grand Championship. This year’s race begins at noon on the plaza, although spectators should get there early. Submitted
It’ll be Ferndale or bust this weekend for 30 to 50 teams piloting some of the wackiest contraptions Humboldt Bay has ever seen.

The 48th-annual Kinetic Grand Championship will take off at high noon from the Arcata Plaza on Saturday. The teams will pedal and paddle their way from the plaza through the Manila Dunes, the streets of Eureka and over the Eel River bottoms before finishing in downtown Ferndale on Monday. Along the way racers will face two water crossings, occasional freeway traffic and Dead Man’s Drop.

JustServe in search of help to clean Crescent City Cemetery

JustServe is looking for at least 100 adults to help beautify the Crescent City Cemetery in preparation for Memorial Day.

The service organization is asking folks to bring shovels, wheelbarrows, large garbage bags, pruning shears and motorized weed eaters. Volunteers should bring gloves, eye protection, drinking water and protection from the sun and weather. Knee pads, buckets, liquid soap and brushes would also be helpful for those cleaning headstones.
