Scotch Broom Bash

Read more...
Del Norte Triplicate/ Bryant Anderson
This time of year scotch broom flowers wave like bright yellow flags, each tiny bloom proclaiming the success of one species to the detriment of many others.

Consider the Oregon silverspot butterfly, an increasingly rare species threatened by scotch broom’s advance across the Pacific Northwest. It depends on native plants that struggle to grow where broom takes root. 

This Saturday a coalition of public agencies, conservation groups and local volunteers will come together to pull up broom in the coastal grasslands near Lake Earl, home to the last remaining population of Oregon silverspot butterflies in California, one of only five populations left in the U.S.

Reggae lovers will be in for a treat Friday when the Jamaican group the Itals come to the 101 Bar and Grill in Brookings for a free concert.

The Itals were founded in 1976 by Ronnie Davis and Keith Porter, who had been a member of the Westmorelites and wrote the Itals’ first big hit, “Ina Dis Ya Time.” When the song topped Jamaican charts, Porter and Davis teamed up with Lloyd Ricketts to create a harmony-trio format. 


All invited to clean up beach Sat.

Take A Bite out of Blight is seeking volunteers for a community beach cleanup south of Crescent City on Saturday. 

The group of volunteers, founded by District 1 Supervisor Roger Gitlin two years ago, will clean up an area on U.S. Highway 101 near Sand Mine Road. The land is owned by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and has been used for illegal camping, according to Gitlin.

“It’s kind of in the bushes, you really can’t see it,” he said. “Once you go back into the trail, there’s a couple of side routes that have been walked on, and you can see lots of trash.”


Garage Sale Review: The controversial plight of the early bird

Hola, crap crusaders! The Garage Sale Review is back after a brief hiatus, and since my last column put the yard sales of Southern Oregon in the secondhand spotlight, I figured it was only right to return to Crescent City — my first love when it comes to stumbling into strangers’ yards and printing demented ramblings in the newspaper about what I find there.

Sadly, there were only three garage sales listed in the classifieds on Saturday, so this week’s junk manifesto was a bit limited by a lack of cool stuff for sale. But I soldiered on, keeping in mind what Dad always said, “When life hands you a rusty barbecue grill, spraypaint it black and sell it to an unsuspecting sucker for double what you paid.”


Spellbound to the Finish

Top two spellers keep audience on the edges of their seats at annual bee 

Mary Horn gave them “macaroon” and “fracas,” but still Ryleigh Bennett and Ella Crotzer were tied.

Ryleigh and Ella, second-graders in Leslie Bower’s class at Pine Grove Elementary School, spelled “goulash,” “kosher” and “dictionary.” The tie held. 

Ella’s mom, Janice Crotzer, sat on the edge of her seat. The other students and parents who were finished with the spelling bee and waiting on the awards ceremony Wednesday were transfixed. Until Horn had the two girls spell “mackerel.”

 


Little princesses enjoy jubilee

Chloe White meets Beauty. Submitted
The gym at Foursquare Christian School was flooded with pink, tulle and rhinestone as more than 80 girls came to see their favorite Disney princess last week.

The youngsters, some who came from Medford, Gold Beach and Arcata, learned how to dance and sing like a princess and how to display “princess perfect” manners while dining. Each girl attended her own coronation with her very own tiara and the Fairy Godmother’s proclamation that she was, indeed, a real princess.

“Every little girl dreams of being a princess,” said Crescent City resident Angel Tomasini, whose granddaughter Macee was dressed as Elsa from “Frozen.” “This is a dream come true for all these little girls.”


Radiothon draws big support

The local Bicoastal Media radio stations outdid themselves in this year’s radiothon for St. Jude Kids, raising $20,000 more than last year.

The two-day fundraising event, which was held March 12 and 13 and included Crescent City stations KPOD 97 FM, KCRE 94.3 and KPOD AM 1240, raised nearly $145,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. A last-minute anonymous donation of $3,000 helped Bicoastal Media exceed last year’s total, according to Rene Shanle-Hutzell, general manager for Crescent City’s Bicoastal Media stations.

Paw Print: Young dog, new tricks

Editor’s note: This is the second installation of a new regular column by Jennifer Henion about dog care. Henion owns Red Rover Ranch, which provides daycare and boarding for dogs at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds in Crescent City.

I love puppies. Not because they are cute, but because they are little sponges who are so easy to train. Of all the things we can teach a new puppy or young dog, there are four that are most important. I call them the “Big Four.” They can all be accomplished in two 10-minute sessions a day. 

 


Church Notebook: Easter, Passover offer opportunity to return to faith

In a couple weeks, it will be both Passover and Easter — two overlapping holidays that to Christians will be forever intertwined and, to the Jewish people, a demonstration of God’s power to rescue them from slavery, death and Pharaoh. 

How so? The night of Passover was also the night that Jesus was betrayed by Judas and taken by the Roman guards for trial.
