Watching the LRT production of “A Christmas Story” a real treat

Friday night we spent a wonderfully entertaining evening enjoying LRT’s latest effort, “A Christmas Story,” the memoir of 9-year old Ralph Parker growing up in the 1940s. The play’s great success can be attributed to the constant dry wit and droll comments narrated throughout the play by Howard Patterson, whose performance absolutely carried the play. He was ably supported by Evan Wise, believably playing Ralph’s father in all his humorous bouts with neighborhood dogs, the basement furnace and other domestic tribulations. The set itself was another pleasure featuring nostalgic and authentic furnishings from the ’40s. Dylan Panter as 9-year-old Ralphie and all the children who played his friends added to the fun.

Reconsider our affiliations with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

I have resolved to recommend that businesses and organizations with which I am affiliated remove their businesses and organizations from membership in the Crescent City/ Del Norte County Chamber of Commerce and any local chamber which is affiliated with the National Chamber of Commerce. I am taking these actions because the U.S. Chamber of Commerce secretly took over $86 million dollars from big insurance companies in order to defeat health care reform — including help for small businesses that want to provide health insurance to employees.

Help veterans who survived and still suffer to keep country free

Veteran’s Day is a big deal. It is to me. As a Vietnam veteran with issues, I am proud of my service for my country, not my Vietnam service — haven’t gained the respect for being a “baby killer,” having things thrown at me when I came home, being spit upon, ashamed of the way it all went down.

Today the Veterans Administration is taking very good care of me. That I’m proud of. I want all veterans to be proud of their service, war or not. I want more people on H Street for the Veteran’s Day Parade. Help the veterans who survived and still suffer to keep our country free.

Much we can learn from world

Every country in the world is thought to be the best by its citizens. I wonder how many of our people know that Brazil just elected its first woman president. How many of you know that China is putting its resources into green energy, including a high-speed rail system?

My husband and I were fortunate to have visited Italy in 2008. We were impressed by the vast effort they put into constant restoration of their many old churches, museums, castles, colleges and other edifices of historical importance, thereby keeping many people employed. Many of these grand structures are thousands of years old.

Rick Sanchez’s comments expose hypocrisy in the media

How come all the Obama supporters in the mainstream media are cracking up these days? Is the pressure getting to them?

The example of Rick Sanchez comes to mind. It is just classic. Rick Sanchez was on CNN three hours a day, but this genius complained about being discriminated against because he was Hispanic.

Transaction tax would take

$100 from $5,000 bank deposit

House Resolution 4646, introduced by our congressman neighbor immediately to the north, Peter DeFazio, and U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin D-Iowa, is now in committee and will be snuck in now that the election is over to keep it under the radar and voted on by a lame-duck Congress.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month was productive effort

October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month has come to a close. The purple ribbons are gone from the roadways and the lavender Bear Hugs are disappearing from the business windows and walls, but the warmth and generosity of the residents of our great community continues to shine brightly. The entire community has helped to make our awareness events a success.

Harrington House is here to help men, women, and children who are victims of domestic violence. October’s fundraising events raise money to help off-set the cost of emergency shelter, specialized counseling, food, clothing, legal and social advocacy.

Thanks to candidates who shop locally for their campaign signs

Thank you candidates who shopped local! I own a small business here in Crescent City where we customize T-shirts, signs, buttons and other promotional items. I’ve been doing this for five years now.

When I first began here, during election season we were always lucky to get any candidates come in and ask for a quote, let alone order signs. After talking to the other sign companies in town I discovered that most of the signs and other promotional products were being ordered from out of the area. I can understand why people would do this, because it is cheaper to order from a large company that mass-produces signs.

BID: By investing in community, city and our children, we all win

When I left Crescent City in June 1984, I pledged never to look back … let alone move back (at the wise age of 18!). Today, I wholeheartedly embrace my roots and consciously try to make where I live and conduct business a better place to be for my little girl.

A lot of questions surrounding the fate of the Business Improvement District has been the conversation of late and had led me to believe that many had lost a sense of community. Saturday, I was pleasantly reminded that our sense of community starts with our children.

Highlight of Green Day was video about student beach cleanup

The third annual “It’s a Green Day” event was fun and informative, as usual. The highlight of the day for me was watching the video presented during science teacher Joe Gillespie’s workshop.

Created by artist Daniel Dancer of Oregon, this amazing 11-minute piece brings together the story of a dead sperm whale that washed up on a local beach two years ago, the beach clean-up carried out in part by school students district-wide in September of this year and the sky art image of a whale designed by Dancer and formed by hundreds of Crescent Elk Middle School and Joe Hamilton students.
