Angela Glore’s food column is printed monthly.

Keeping backyard chickens was the subject of a Food Day workshop last year. This year will bring more such events on a variety of topics. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
I recently received an e-mail containing a collection of definitions for the term “food literacy.”

I read through them with interest because I’d been thinking about that phrase ever since taking a food literacy quiz and getting three of the answers wrong. I like to think I’m pretty food literate, so my ego might have been slightly bruised.

No thought to thought experiment on marriage

In response to Bob Berkowitz’s Feb. 22 Did You Know? column, “Wondering how far our ‘civil rights’ can be taken,” Bob, I had to explain to your cat that you were just writing about a thought experiment when you conjectured about making her a domestic partner. She’ll come out from under the couch now.


E & P: Those letters about hospital need to cover new ground

Letters to the editor are understandably a well-read part of any newspaper. After all, they represent the direct voices of readers, unfiltered except by judicious editing if the newspaper is doing its job.


Crab fleet holds out for 2 cents more per pound

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

Crescent City crab fishermen went back to work last week after buyers agreed to their demands for 2 cents more per pound, bringing the price to 9½ cents per pound.

Problem with ditching tsunami sirens in favor of cell phones

This is regarding the Feb. 18 article, “Counties weigh siren cost.”

My question is, who would pay for the cost of furnishing cell phones and the monthly costs associated with them for every household in Del Norte County that doesn’t have a cell phone?


Coastal Voices: Del Norte must explore alternatives to Sutter Health

I recently reviewed the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) that Sutter Coast Hospital is required to do.

It is very informative and I hope members of the community, the current Sutter Coast Hospital local Board members and the members of the recently disbanded Steering Committee who voted for Critical access and Regionalization take a good look at it.

Valued pelican statue stolen from driveway

For 25 years a concrete statue of a pelican stood in my driveway in front of my garage. It was a gift from my late husband and had great sentimental value to me.


Did you know? Wondering how far our 'civil rights' can be taken

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. As a college student at the time, I was heavily involved in the free speech movement on the campus at San Francisco State University while many of my friends had volunteered to participate in the civil rights struggles in Mississippi.

We were fighting racial and ethnic discrimination that was practiced against minorities.  We were the innocent children of the ’50s who became the activists of the ’60s.


Del Norte falls to Hoopa in semifinals

The Del Norte boys basketball team’s run through the Dick Nicial Tournament came to an end on Thursday in Hoopa.

The Warriors traveled south take on the Humboldt-Del Norte Little 5 regular season champs and fell 66-52 in what Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez felt was the team’s worst game of the season.


A look back at DN’s 1980 cheerleaders

My interest in cheerleading goes family-deep for me, since my youngest daughter Kim was a cheerleader for Yucca Valley High school and my granddaughter Samantha Killen was a Warrior cheerleader here.

So when a cheerleader from 1980, the year I returned to work at Del Norte, called my attention to how hard cheerleaders work, I decided to look back at cheerleading in 1980 and compare it to 2014.
