Just because he collects recyclables every morning, doesn’t mean he’s homeless (which he isn’t). And just because he doesn’t have cable tv, doesn’t mean he’s not up on the news of the nation (which he is). And just because he’s on a fixed income, doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a college degree (which he does).

Andrew Topa spent most of a 30-minute school assembly at Crescent Elk Middle School airborne.

Topa sped down the quarter pipe and launched himself from the box jump to the adulation of the crowd. He even leaped over his colleague, Chris Westlund, who led the assembly Wednesday. But it wasn’t enough for the scores of Joe Hamilton and Bess Maxwell students.

Off the Grid: Thereís power in wildland living

Volts, watts, and amps… Oh My. Inverters, volt meters, and generators… Oh My. There’s more to living off grid than I anticipated.

It has been my desire to go green and lessen my carbon footprint; to be one with nature and experience the spectacular natural resources this region has to offer. Del Norte County has giant forests, wild ocean shores, rogue rivers, prairies, miles of sandy beaches, and rugged mountains.

Church Notebook: Take time to remember, thank veterans

Have you ever taken the time when you were at Walmart to check out the pictures of our local veterans? Generations of military have served our country to preserve our freedom, even at the cost of their own lives.

Of course, the most recent ones may catch the attention of the younger generation, like Bruno DeSolenni, whose mother I consider a friend. I cannot imagine the heartache of losing a child at all, let alone in a war.

Theater co.ís 2nd production

Before she got down to one of the last rehearsals prior to opening night, Kirsten Randrup led her cast and crew, and anyone else who was game, in a warm up round of Zoom!

The actors grouped themselves in a circle and pretended they were cars on a race track, complete with screeching halts, death defying leaps and fiery crashes. Randrup said the warm up allows her cast and crew to “be in the present” and pay attention.
