Church Notebook: Many churches enjoy game nights

I never thought I’d say this, but I think I miss the rain!

That driving blast of water coming at me sideways that taught me when I first came here that using an umbrella was a lesson in futility. The rain isn’t really so bad, but I sure don’t like the wind.


Pages of History: Beachfront development under way

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1964.

Work on Crescent City’s $497,000 beachfront development project, including an indoor swimming pool, should be under way yet this month.

That was the word from Lloyd Byrne, City Superintendent of Public Works, Friday, after city councilmen passed a resolution of intent to award contracts for the project with as much work as possible subcontracted to local firms.

Construction is to begin in 10 days and will take 270 days to complete.

Praise makes me feel more worthy of being vet

“Good morning Del Norte County.” Not Vietnam anymore.

As a ’Nam combat vet, I would like to thank the members of my community for training the young adults and children to respect veterans.

They say, “Thank you for serving our country, sir.” That makes me cry. Why?


California Focus: California’s silly season: Two plans going nowhere

The end of December and early January is usually a downtime in the co-dependent businesses of government and news, replete with vacation breaks for many. This can often net flaky ideas and words far more coverage than they deserve.

So it was when ex-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called state legislators a bunch of “girlie men,” early in his term, only to have those same folks later best him at every turn. And when ex-Gov. Gray Davis first suggested the same lawmakers exist to “implement my vision.”


E & P: The simulated tsunami had it all, except sirens

You had to be there, and hardly anybody was.

The winter’s first storm blew through Del Norte early Saturday. People trying to sleep close to the sea were serenaded by an orchestra of three sections: wind, rain and surf.

By Sunday, the first two were silenced, but the last one was booming. Then it teamed up with the morning’s high tide to create tsunami-like conditions — without the sirens.

Courageous woman restores faith in DN

Just a brief note to express my admiration for the woman described in the Jan. 9 article, “Burglars flee from armed woman.”

This one courageous elderly woman with her gun has restored my faith and pride in Del Norte County and has done more for the betterment of our society than the thousands of wimpy anti-gun “liberals” infesting our governments and our media. She deserves national headlines and a presidential medal, but I doubt that will happen.


Girls hoops team began back in ‘74

It was a long time coming and long over due.

The league and the state finally recognized that girls deserved the same opportunity to display and receive recognition for their athletic talents as do the boys.


Walk Your World: The South Fork: Can you ford it?

Staying on the trail means fording the South Fork of the Smith. Del Norte Triplicate / Richard Wiens
We’ve never been walking-stick hikers, much less users of the fancy poles that look like they belong on ski hills. But we could’ve used them last Saturday on a stretch of the restored Kelsey Trail that calls for fording the South Fork of the Smith River.

Someone had actually left a decent-looking stick leaning against a sign at the trailhead for the Ford-to-Canthook section, but we left it there.


Church Notebook: DN churches: There’s no shortage of choices

The cat did it.

No, he didn’t eat my homework — he dialed my phone.

A few mornings ago, I awakened to find the red light on my cell phone blinking. A text message from my daughter was asking if everything was all right because I had called her just after midnight but did not say anything.


Pages of History: The turkey dinner that got away

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

Candidates for 1957’s “Meanest Man of the Year” aren’t being sought, but here’s one that would probably win hands down.

Expecting guests for Christmas dinner, Mrs. Clara McIndoe of Ocean Drive thoughtfully cleaned and stuffed her turkey on Christmas Eve, then placed it in the refrigerator all ready to pop in the oven the next day.
