Tribe’s celebration includes booth on drought’s danger to salmon 

Sam Gensaw Jr. and his family began work long before the cars pulled into Klamath.

As folks gathered on the main drag for the parade that would kick off the Yurok Tribe’s 52nd annual Klamath Salmon Festival, Gensaw and his nephews were preparing the star of the show — fresh chinook salmon caught at the mouth of the river.

Gensaw said he and his father, Sam Gensaw Sr., began digging the pit at 6 a.m. With a large knife, Gensaw sliced the crimson-fleshed fish into smaller fillets; his nephews Frankie and Donovan seasoned them with salt and pepper; and Sam Gensaw Sr. skewered them on wooden stakes and stuck those into the ground to roast the salmon over open flames.

“We have two fish pits, one here and one behind Pem-Mey,” Gensaw said, referring to Klamath’s convenience store and gas station. “It takes an hour depending on the size of the fish.”

Crescent City flying under the radar no longer

Makes Chronicle’s list of low-profile ‘California beach towns to visit now’ 

The San Francisco Chronicle is urging people to visit Crescent City’s “spectacularly lonely, untamed cliffs lashed by angry waves.” Now.

The paper included Crescent City in its “15 under-the-radar California beach towns to visit now” online slideshow and features a photo of Battery Point Lighthouse. Crescent City shares billing with Humboldt County’s Shelter Cove, Marin County’s Point Reyes Station and Los Angeles County’s San Pedro.

Senior Sleuth: C.C. Harbor officials on what they are doing

I know you’ve been waiting for the rest of my interview with Ron Phillips, so here goes. Remember I wrote in my column two weeks ago (“Fair offers time to get to know movers, shakers,” Aug. 5) about his work as director of the farmers market at the fairgrounds every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Ron is also the special projects coordinator at Rural Human Services. The farmers market is a project of RHS. They’ve been a sponsor of it for 10 years. In addition, Ron coordinates the food bank program at RHS, a very time-consuming project. He coordinates getting the food in. 


Church Notebook: Not too early to plan for Christmas giving

With school about to start, the stores are having some pretty good pricing on school supplies.

Walmart is asking you to “Fill the Bus” with supplies for local students. Who knows how many we will have who need help obtaining what they need or if we will have some of the children who have come from afar?
