Vista Point: Down the hill, through the fog, glimpses of DN

s you descend Highway 101 toward Crescent City from just south of town, a blue road sign points left to announce a “Vista Point.”

Those precious tourists we crave may pull off the road into a wide pull-out I know you’ve all seen, where a view of Crescent City in all its splendor lies before them: its wide crescent beaches, its harbor and jetty, a lighthouse and, beyond, a playground of sea stacks, ragged ribbons of white seafoam and craggy cliffs.

House Calls: Ultrasound isn’t just to view babies

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Catherine Balck, an ultrasound technologist  at Sutter Coast Hospital.

Some people are surprised when their doctor orders an ultrasound exam, because they thought ultrasound was only used for viewing babies inside of mothers.

Actually, ultrasound exams are used to look at and evaluate almost all areas of the body.  For example, we regularly use ultrasound to see the abdomen, pelvis, kidneys, bladder, scrotum, breast, all sorts of blood vessels and of course babies at various stages of development.

House Calls: Early years are crucial for children

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Sheryl Roeloffs and members of the Community Advisory Board.

You only want the best for your baby and so do the Del Norte Family Resource Center, First 5 of Del Norte and Sutter Coast Hospital.

It is very important to talk and read to your baby for healthy brain development. From the beginning, an infant’s brain is like a sponge soaking up every word.

By attending Birth and Beyond Incredible Infants class, parents learn about a baby’s brain development and how to take advantage of this critical time. Parenting is the most important job there is. Parents are their children’s most important teachers. Every parent or caregiver has the power to impact a child’s ability to learn.

Sarina a three-sport star at DN

Most current Del Norters know Jay Sarina as the county’s administrative officer.

I prefer to think of Jay wearing the blue and gold of the Del Norte Warriors and performing on the football field and basketball court or the baseball diamond with the stands full of loyal fans yelling for him.

The 1982 Del Norte High School graduate was an excellent three-sport performer for the Warriors.

Two kids, a boat and a checkered flag

Longtime Del Norte County resident Chuck Blackburn’s column appears monthly.

My heart over the years keeps coming back to the Klamath River. My many memories of my experiences as a teenager and then as an adult have consistently jumped back out of my soul as a longtime resident of this community.

I started out my job as a dock boy in 1950 at the age of 14. And being under the guidance of Paul and Shorty Conner had quite an impact on me for my five years that I worked for them. My father Wes gave me a great foundation of morals, honesty and the value of working hard and continually learning. Paul and Shorty reinforced my dad’s lessons.

House Calls: Summer near, take stock of bicycle safety

House Calls runs every other Saturday. Today’s column is written by Quenlyn Larson, a pediatric nurse practitioner at Sutter Coast Community Clinic.

Read more...Summer is almost here, the perfect time to get out and ride bikes!

Bike riding can be a fun and healthy sport, and a great way to exercise. However, it is important to remember that bikes are not toys but road vehicles. Be cool, be safe and follow basic safety tips and rules of the road when you ride your bike.

Make sure your bike is ready to ride and that all parts are secure and working properly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (nhtsa.dot.gov) recommends the following safety tips.

Pages of History: American installs new machinery

From the pages of the Crescent City American, May 1927.

The Crescent City American is this week installing one of the finest typesetting machines to be found on the Pacific Coast.

The machine is equipped with the most modern devices and seems almost human in its operations. This machine will take the place of five men at hand composition and therefore will better facilitate our typesetting. Though these machines do not set type better than can be set by hand, it sets it at such a rapid rate that we will be better equipped to handle the news of our fast-growing city.

With the addition of this new piece of equipment, the Intertype, to our well-equipped plant, the American will not be at a loss to handle any job however large or small they may be. The addition of this new piece of machinery, which is added at the expense of thousands of dollars, is another expression of our faith in Crescent City and Del Norte County.

Gray Matters: Grandparents who are parents again

Editor's note: The Area 1 Agency on Aging commissions freelance writer Carol Harrison to produce Gray Matters every two weeks.

Kelly Remington appears in the show, “Skipping Generations.” Submitted
More than one in every four U.S. adults is a grandparent, but 1,200 grandparents in Humboldt and Del Norte counties are pulling double duty.

They are among the one in 12 grandparents stepping in as parents when their children are unable or unwilling to care for their grandchildren. The isolation, lack of resources and challenges they face are spotlighted in “Skipping Generations: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren,” a joint production of KEET-TV and Area 1 Agency on Aging.

From the Publisher's Desk: A morning among the stars

Alayna Farley earned a “Star Reader” certificate during the awards ceremony held recently at Pine Grove Elementary School. Del Norte Triplicate/Michele Thomas
I was honored to represent the Rotary Club of Crescent City last Friday as a presenter of the Spirit of Rotary Award to Hailey Price, a fifth-grader at Pine Grove Elementary School.

Eight other local students have been selected for the annual award that honors a commitment to service to others and strong leadership skills. All will receive their awards before the end of this school year and the Triplicate will publish all their names in an upcoming Neighbors section.

CRDN Report: Year wraps up with awards, graduation

Editor’s note: CRDN Report appears every four weeks.

The end of the College of the Redwoods-Del Norte school year is fast approaching and it is a busy time of the year for students and faculty alike.

Students are putting on the final touches to their term papers, prepping for finals that start next week, and registering for classes if they plan on attending CRDN during the fall semester.

To a group of 42 students, however, the thing that is foremost in their minds is probably graduation.
