From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1959.
Mike Ward, 12-year-son of Mr. and Mrs. Maris Ward, tagged his first honker last Saturday as he and his father were hunting at Tule Lake with Warren Richardson and his son Lee.
Mike’s father, Maris, took two shots at the big goose, but it was Mike’s shot that brought the bird down.
Flynn offers candy canes
Andy Flynn proved recently that he is royalty endowed with the spirit of Christmas by offering to purchase and donate a standard candy cane street decoration to be installed at the corner of Third and H streets.
Flynn, who is chairman of the tourist and recreation committee of the Del Norte Chamber of Commerce, made the offer to the merchants committee, which has charge of the street decoration project. The offer was accepted.
Flynn also offered to buy two Christmas trees to be placed along Highway 101 entrances to the city. The merchants committee, with Leo Sullivan as chairman, will choose sites for those trees.
