 Activities both familiar and new will fill annual event’s four-day schedule

At 8 a.m. this morning, the gates will swing open on another year of a time-tested local institution that is more Del Normal than lily bulbs and redwood stumps: the Del Norte County Fair, which runs today through Sunday.

Some things never change at the fair, like the year-after-year, crowd-pleasing spectacles of Sunday’s Demolition Derby and Tuff Trucks competition, Saturday’s C.C.P.R.A. Rodeo, Friday’s Miss Del Norte competition, the Grange Jr. Livestock Auction on Sunday and a country music star or two.

 Cornerstone laying and dedication ceremony Saturday


Two years after flames wiped out more than 150 years of records and memories, Crescent City’s Freemasons on Saturday will lay a stone at their new lodge from the building that burned down.

A cornerstone laying and rededication ceremony will mark the completion of the new Masonic Community Center at Ninth and B streets. The ceremony will also officially make the lodge available for community activities and fundraisers, said John Pricer, Worshipful Master of Crescent Lodge #45 Free and Accepted Masons.

John L. Cooper III, Most Worshipful Grand Master of the Masons of California, will lead the rededication ceremony, Pricer said.



Salmon will only get more water if die-off starts

From staff and wire reports

A federal agency said Wednesday that it will not release extra water into the Klamath-Trinity  river system to preemptively avoid the spread of disease known to kill salmon during low, warm-water conditions — like during this year’s drought — causing fisheries scientists to warn of the risk of a salmon fish kill like that which occurred in 2002.

U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which manages the water held in reservoirs on the Trinity River, said it will release extra water into the Klamath-Trinity system once salmon start dying from drought-related disease, but not before.

 Oreo did a happy dance when Jasmin Tripp entered his pen with breakfast, bouncing on his two front feet and nudging her with his snout. With her mom looking on, the 11-year-old poured grain into the pig’s bowl, then added leftovers from her family’s breakfast — oatmeal and pancake scraps. Grunting contentedly, Oreo stepped into his bowl to gobble up his food.

New mixed martial arts team combines coaches, fighters from Gym Rats and Tsunami MMA

Mixed martial arts has received a makeover in Del Norte County. The Fighting Gym Rats have combined with Tsunami MMA to for a brand new club — Warrior MMA.
“It made more sense in this small of a town to combine our knowledge and all work together,” said Warrior coach and former Tsunami MMA owner Eli Stancliff. “We all live here and we all get along great, so why have two separate teams in a small town?”
