With the warm weather we had last weekend, I succumbed to the itch and added more vegetables to the garden.
I went a little wild and planted Asian Long Beans in the tiny
greenhouse we built on the sunny side of our house. Not being a
confident gardener, I have not checked the beans since. I use the
“plant-and-run” method. The joy I get from gardening doesn’t come from
daily forays into the fields to see how my garden grows. I like the
concept of raising my own vegetables more than the practice.
Back in 1911, Crescent City was a lively town with 13 saloons, a
bunch of billiard halls, a few barbershops, one genuine electric
traffic signal, churches, schools, a theater, a bad phone service, bad
roads, and an expanding population.
A community support system was definitely in order.
Now this is an ad hoc committee worthy of consideration.
Crescent City and harbor officials are talking about exploring the
possibility of the harbor being annexed by the city. Ultimately, the
harbor would probably still be run by a harbormaster and Harbor
Commission – its needs and attributes require specialized leadership.
But it would become a service district within the city.
