From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, August 1969.
Burglars entered the home of Sharyn D. McNeeley of Crescent City on July 31 during a short period the owners were away.
After returning to their home, they discovered that someone had entered the house through a window and had taken $5 in coins from their daughter’s piggy bank.
The Del Norte Sheriff’s Office reported that in addition to taking the money, a slice of pie was also taken. Deputies have obtained a description of an older model car that was seen leaving the area and are continuing their investigation
The opening of Undersea Gardens, which has been rescheduled twice, is set for 9 a.m. Aug. 13, according to Norma Saunders, the local manager.
The gardens, a live marine display with scheduled diving shows and demonstrations, has suffered setbacks of all kinds. The most recent delays were caused by water that was slow to clear and, for the past week, an inability to get sufficient fish and other undersea life to stock the garden. Weather conditions have hampered drag boats, Mrs. Saunders said.
