From the Publisher's Desk: One man’s son, Del Norte’s legacy

Read more...NOTE: I have written about Dustin and Jon Weber before in a column published January 10. The column was inspired by the story “Tribute Trek” published in the Triplicate January 7 and in the Curry Coastal Pilot last weekend. Links to the articles and news stories about Dustin Weber are provided at the end of this column.

Last year’s tsunami claimed one victim, 25-year-old Dustin Weber, who moved here from Bend, Ore., just three weeks before his death. His maternal grandmother had just given him an old home in Klamath and he was in the process of fixing it up to be his own.

And so when Dustin Weber got out of bed on the morning of March 11, I’m certain he did not intend to drown that day. He and his friends did what hundreds of other Del Norters — despite warnings and pleas — did. Curiosity about the tsunami led spectators to the water’s edge. Near my home I watched couples with their children sitting on the guard rail facing Pebble Beach and waiting for “the big one.” As I drove past, dozens of people were standing on the beach.
