Doing the impossible

Two years ago Kristina Davis wasn’t sure she would survive. Davis was six weeks into treatment for cervical cancer and pregnant when she made an appearance at the 2014 Relay for Life. Her child, a little girl named Johanna, had been sharing space with a tumor, but was growing and developing despite the doctors’ doubts.

On Friday, Johanna, who will be 2 next month, squealed and struggled against her father’s arms while her mother gave the Candle of Hope address at this year’s Relay for Life of Crescent City. Earlier that evening, the little girl and her mom both wore purple survivor T-shirts.

The Florence Keller paintings, discovered more than a year ago in a closet at the Cultural Center by Crescent City Public Works Maintenance Manager Jason Wylie, had been locked away and forgotten for decades. Now, the city is poised to give them a proper home.

“Turnover at the city and lack of funding for this project, and other influences have led to these paintings being ‘lost’ for some time in a closet at the Cultural Center,” according to a background research report included in the City Council agenda.

It takes about 4½ hours to walk from Northcrest to U.S. 101, then up and down the neighborhoods and business district streets between 9th to G streets, all the way down to Front Street. 

Along this route, the small but main portion of Crescent City’s 1.4 square mile size are 27 buildings that appear vacant or have for sale/lease signs in the windows. 

According to city officials there are 650 pending and paid business licenses this fiscal year. Some 280 are non-residential businesses that work through Crescent City, companies such as contractors.

Smith River: Pushing for resident deputy

Smith River Neighborhood Watch members brainstormed steps they could take that would encourage the sheriff to bring a resident deputy back to their community.

At the encouragement of District 3 Supervisor Chris Howard at a their Wednesday meeting, the group pledged to have a proposal before the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors by the time it considers the county’s final budget in October. 

Howard also urged the neighborhood watch to get input from Sheriff Erik Apperson before going to supervisors.

National Parks set record for visitors

More than 305 million people visited national parks in 2015, eclipsing the all-time visitation record the parks saw in the previous year, according to a press release from the National Park Service.

“Redwood National Park alone recorded 527,143 visitors in 2015, up 98,000 from 2014,” the release said. “The total recorded annual combined visitation to all four parks within the Redwood National and State Parks partnership in 2015 is 1,425,203 people. Today, at the peak of the summer season in 2016, Redwood National and State Parks is experiencing visitation equal to or greater than 2015 and park managers expect the trend to continue.” 

Survey: Bus fares to Humboldt are high

Some bus fares may be getting cut soon for riders of Redwood Coast Transit Authority (RCTA).

A recent survey shows RCTA’s one-way fare to Humboldt County is almost four times greater than the average charged by comparable transportation services, according to the authority’s new General Manager Joseph Rye.

Rye disclosed survey results Thursday during a meeting of the Del Norte Local Transportation Commission in Crescent City.

Fire restrictions in effect at Six Rivers National Forest

Fire restrictions took effect Friday in Six Rivers National Forest, Supervisor Merv George Jr. announced in a press release. 

Implementing fire restrictions helps minimize the potential for human-caused wildland fire starts, the release said. 

“While lightning is the number one cause of fires on the forest, human-caused fires are a major concern,” George said in the release. “Human-caused fires, which range from escaped campfires, careless smokers, equipment use, vehicle exhaust, catalytic converters, or children playing with matches, are preventable. Fire restrictions can’t prevent lightning fires, but they certainly can help prevent human-caused fires.”
