Baby keeps her cheer despite battle with tumor in eye 

Kora Mae Hoy is only 8 months old and has spent half her life battling cancer, but that hasn’t erased the grin on her face.

Diagnosed with retinoblastoma at 5 months old, Kora Mae has had three courses of systemic chemotherapy and one course of localized chemotherapy. Her mother LaShay Gaston gives her seven medications a day, including an injection in her leg. Every three weeks, Gaston and Kora Mae travel to the University of California, San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland for eye exams and treatments.

Weekly discussions, radio show provide  space to discuss women and LGBT issues  

A group like Gender Talk might strike some as incongruous in a conservative community like Crescent City, but siblings Jacob and Rachel Patterson say they just want to “educate people on what’s going on in the world.”

Community makes 50th school carnival a success

On behalf of Redwood School, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to our community for making the 50th annual Redwood School carnival such a success.

So many volunteered their time and efforts, donated items and purchased tickets to our carnival booths. It’s really heartening to see such a high level of support for our staff and our students.

Del Norters looking to stay closer to home are invited to a costume party and an interactive showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Saturday, the Day of the Dead.

Seminar to identify mushrooms

The autumn rains that have soaked the North Coast over the past few weeks have brought an eruption of mushrooms.

The Redwoods Parks Association and Tolowa Dunes Stewards invite the public to join biologist Wendell Wood on Nov. 7 for an introduction to the wild mushrooms and fungi of the area. Wood will lead an all-day field seminar the following day to locate and identify (not collect) the fungi of the coastal forests and fields.

The concert will be held at Elk Valley Casino on Saturday and will include raffles, a silent auction, dinner and dancing.

Helping Haiti’s orphans

Team Redwood, a group of volunteer American health care workers, will travel to Haiti Nov. 8 to provide medical care for orphans. Submitted
Nearly five years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, Carolyn Dikes says she hopes to return to a country that’s nearly back on its feet.

Dikes, a local physician’s assistant, is part of Team Redwood, a group of volunteer healthcare workers who’ve visited Haiti to lend a hand annually since the devastating earthquake of 2010. She will head back to Port Au Prince on Friday to purchase food and supplies before the rest of her teammates arrive on Nov. 8. This will be her sixth visit to several orphanages in the island nation. 

Senior Sleuth: Hymns, prayer on new radio show

I am introducing my new radio show, “Sunday Afternoon Hymns and Prayer,” on KFUG 101.1 FM, every Sunday from 3-4 p.m. And I am also introducing the first guest on my show, Pastor Blake Inscore of First Baptist Church, Crescent City. 

I attended First Baptist’s 65th anniversary service on Sunday, Oct. 19. It was also a dedication service for their new stained glass windows provided by local artist Mike Selfridge. Pastor Blake led the young boys in the congregation in line around the sanctuary and discussed each window. It was an inspiring ceremony, and the windows were beautiful.
