Kevin and Patrick Hawkins made local headlines when they entered the world in 1989. 

Now the identical twins, who grew up in Crescent City, have entered fatherhood a day apart and made the local news again.

Kevin and his wife Jael welcomed Everett James Thomas Hawkins at 6:30 a.m. Aug. 17, which happened to be their one-year anniversary. One room over, Patrick and his wife Amanda greeted their daughter, Adelaide Charlotte Hawkins, at 9:28 p.m. Aug. 18. 

Cash for recycling electronics supports literacy

Del Norte County’s literacy program is collecting empty laser and inkjet cartridges, used cell phones, CD players and used iPods and iPads.

For the fourth year, Del Norte Reads will partner with the FundingFactory Recycling Program. The program will send the waste products it collects to the FundingFactory in exchange for their products or cash.

“Del Norte Reads is always looking for new ways to fund our program,” literacy manager Kelley Nolan explained in a written statement. 

Got milk? Prizes offered for pics of teens’ breakfasts

High school students in Del Norte County have a chance to win $1,000 simply by snapping a photo of their breakfast.

The California Milk Processor Board, creator of the “Got Milk?” advertising campaign, invites California teens 13–18 years old to participate in the Breakfast Challenge. Students should post a picture of their breakfast with milk on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag the image using the hashtag #gotmilkinmybreakfast.

Del Norte People: Uncle Paul, be patient. I will meet you there

Hi, folks. This is a story about a friend, a mentor and a man I considered family. His name is Paul Connor. My good friend Larry Holcomb and I were both mentored as young guys, and we both called Paul “Unk.” Paul died in the state of Washington at 88 years old. Larry passed away several years ago in Paradise, Calif.

My father and I drove into Shorty’s Camp in June of 1949 and met Paul and Shorty Connor, who owned Shorty’s Camp. Paul had just served in the Army in the war in Korea. Shorty was a great old Irishman with a black derby hat on his head and a colorful Irish scarf around his neck. Although we were just passing through on the way north, our stay was only for a couple days. We were living in a tent on our adventurous trip to Canada. 

Thank You: Community effort finds missing cat

A big thank-you! I would really like to thank everyone involved in finding our beautiful and spoiled cat Franklin. Bicoastal Media, Facebook, Humane Society and our local vets carried our flier. Frank came up missing on Aug. 12. We were devastated. My good neighbor searched the woods with me for days. 

Thank You: Many people made triathlon possible

On behalf of the Crescent City Triathlon Organizing Team, I would like to thank the many volunteers for making our Aug. 17 event possible. 

I also want to thank Tom Latimer at Back Country Bicycles for donating a Trek mountain bike that was given away in a special drawing. 

Del Norte Gardening: A time to reap and sow

Even though summer crops produce the most fruit in August, it’s not to early to think about your winter garden. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
Summer’s final chapter heralds the beginning of a new growing season 

As we pass through August and the nights get a little cooler, we are reminded of the coming fall. 

Yet that change can be so hard to keep in mind, as a garden will typically produce the most bounty within the month of August. This time each year at Ocean Air Farms, we find ourselves scrambling just to keep up with the harvesting. In the home garden, it is much of the same rush, except preserving that bounty also takes substantial time and energy. It’s this time of year, however, that can be looked at like a great big fork in the road.   

$250K to expand youth education programs

Del Norte County is one of 19 communities — and the only rural community in California — to receive grants designed to strengthen the safety net for young adults who have dropped out of school and are unemployed.

The Aspen Institute’s Forum for Community Solutions awarded a $50,000 grant last year to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation and the Del Norte County and Adjacent Tribal Lands Opportunity Youth Initiative to create and develop the program. 

Church Notebook: Pray for Middle East; situation is desperate

To say the least, we are living in interesting times. 

You wonder if you should continue to watch the news or shut it off. But if you shut it off, will you miss something that really matters? 

The world is crazier than ever, and it’s pretty obvious that “Satan is alive and well on Planet Earth,” as the saying goes. The latest atrocity just makes me sick — yet it is performed by a faith that claims to be one of peace.
