Albino Redwoods

Delve into the mysterious world of chimera redwoods at Trees of Mystery on June 7.
With red-barked trunks bearing limbs hundreds of feet off the ground, needles dripping with summer fog, Sequoia sempervirens appear otherworldly to many visitors.

To Thomas Stapleton, the coast redwood was a normal part of growing up in Sonoma until about 1996 in Jack London State Park when he happened upon his first albino, a normal green tree whose basal sprouts were white.

Church Notebook: Avoiding selfishness, being forgiving ensure peace

“Mine. Give it back.”

How many times as parents do we hear this between our children or perhaps a child and a playmate? And, had to remind them to share?

The concept of ownership has spawned many wars and there are more on the horizon if things don’t change. Someone wants more land or perhaps something of value belonging to someone else. And it can go from simple sibling rivalry, unless checked, to more serious situations. From what I have observed from time to time, sadly, it seems like a lot of kids aren’t being taught that principle today.

Kinetic competition Saturday

“Bite Me” makes the rounds at the Arcata Plaza during the 2014 Kinetic Grand Championship. This year’s race begins at noon on the plaza, although spectators should get there early. Submitted
It’ll be Ferndale or bust this weekend for 30 to 50 teams piloting some of the wackiest contraptions Humboldt Bay has ever seen.

The 48th-annual Kinetic Grand Championship will take off at high noon from the Arcata Plaza on Saturday. The teams will pedal and paddle their way from the plaza through the Manila Dunes, the streets of Eureka and over the Eel River bottoms before finishing in downtown Ferndale on Monday. Along the way racers will face two water crossings, occasional freeway traffic and Dead Man’s Drop.

JustServe in search of help to clean Crescent City Cemetery

JustServe is looking for at least 100 adults to help beautify the Crescent City Cemetery in preparation for Memorial Day.

The service organization is asking folks to bring shovels, wheelbarrows, large garbage bags, pruning shears and motorized weed eaters. Volunteers should bring gloves, eye protection, drinking water and protection from the sun and weather. Knee pads, buckets, liquid soap and brushes would also be helpful for those cleaning headstones.

Harbor Gallery’s demo today

Crescent Harbor Gallery’s “fourth Thursday demo” will be given by Doug Minty at noon today, preceded by a potluck. Minty will demonstrate his pen and ink techniques. The gallery’s artist of the month is Sandy Greenfield, whose favorite subjects are boats, harbors and lighthouses in a self-described “whimsical, loose” watercolor style. A sampling of her works is currently on display, along with pieces by other gallery members. For more information, call Crescent Harbor Gallery at 707-464-9133 or stop by 140 Marine Way.

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).
