Redwood Rockettes always put on a show

When Warrior fans attend a Del Norte High football or basketball game, we can look forward to an exciting performance by the Redwood Rockettes.


Church Notebook: Good Friday, Easter, Passover next month

I don’t know what’s mixed with our recent rains, but I don’t think it’s just water.

Usually a good rain does a great wash job on my truck (it’s white), but lately whatever the stuff is, it’s sticking pretty good. Perhaps it’s pollen, though it’s brown rather than yellow.


A look back at a look back at the destructive tsunami

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1984.

The following was written by Karl Cates of the Triplicate on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the 1964 tsunami:

Jefferson could better support psychiatric care

California has been closing psychiatric hospitals and reducing the number of beds for patients requiring acute inpatient care over the past 15 years.


Coastal Voices: Is there really no law north of the Klamath?

It was an overcast, windy afternoon outside Newark, N.J. The forecast storm overhead was replaced by the one that always attended the phrase, “Wait until your father gets home.”

On this occasion, I had back-talked a teacher in my eighth-grade math class. I was grounded for a month and ordered to personally apologize to Mr. Ortiz.

Mann, DNUSD cronies setting a sorry example

Thank you Juanita Henson for taking the right and brave step in voicing publicly what has needed to be said for too long (“Mann case a great miscarriage of justice,” March 18). Indeed, what kind “justice” is our court meting out when death is considered an injury?


Did you know? Supermajority: Sing kumbaya!

Have you noticed how quiet and peaceful the political climate is in Sacramento these days? Not one political fight has broken out between Democrats and Republicans. Every single piece of legislation easily passes through the committee process then on to the full Senate and Assembly and then is signed by the governor. You could almost call it a love fest. Let’s all sing kumbaya?

It certainly is a significant change from the old days just several years ago when state budgets were bitterly fought over. Increasing taxes was a big issue between the two parties and the state budget would even be days, if not weeks, late. But not today.

Cost of referendum should be on backers

I’m proud to be a Californian! Ours is the state that has led the way for much of the progress in the country. As California goes, so goes the country! 

Paying taxes certainly is a duty to which none of us look forward to. However, every day, at home or anywhere we go, we see what our state taxes provide that we as individuals we could not afford: schools, parks, roads, enforcement of the laws requiring standards for building, vehicle operation, professional services, etc. We often find meeting the requirements upsetting and annoying when we must comply, but are appreciative of those that others must follow.

 


Church Notebook: Spring is here, with Easter and Passover services near

Thursday was pretty nice for the first day of spring. The sun was bright even if it wasn’t too warm.

I’m looking forward to days when I can sit on the back porch with my coffee in the morning, soaking up the sun and admiring the special things that are growing in the backyard. A friend at the hospital gave me two rhubarb roots a couple weeks ago, and they are doing nicely — maybe some strawberry rhubarb pie next year; they’ll need this year to settle in to their new “home.”

The race is officially on between me and the masked bandits — my apple trees are in full bloom.

 


Pages of History: Highway 101 relocation considered

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, March 1958.

The California Highway Commission announced today that it is taking under consideration relocating about eight miles of U.S. Highway 101 (the Redwood Highway) in Humboldt and Del Norte counties.

State Highway Engineer G.T. McCoy has recommended a route which would extend from the vicinity of Prairie Creek Redwood State Park south of the Humboldt–Del Norte County line 0.06 miles south of Minot Creek in Del Norte County.
