Pages of History: Supervisors searching for biggest frog

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

Heard any good frog stories lately? Supervisor Wallace Hight sent out an SOS this week to The Triplicate. He had every reason to do so.

Last weekend, Hight and Andy Mellon, fellow supervisor for the county, were out searching for an ambitious amphibian eager to earn a place in history. Hight said at the time: “I might as well be out looking for a dinosaur.”

It’s a good thing that he wasn’t. Since the story “broke” in this newspaper, Hight has been besieged with offers for all kinds of frogs to champion the cause for our county in a statewide supervisor contest late next month. A $5 prize put up by The Triplicate is still available for the top contender.
