Fourteen miles up South Fork Road, a North Carolina family is discovering what off-the-grid living is like.

For the past four days, this family, including three teenagers and an 8-year-old boy, have stayed in a house powered either by generator or solar energy. Their showers are timed to conserve water and each day they care for chickens and kunekune pigs steps from the front door. All the while television cameras are rolling.

The camera crew belongs to the FYI Network show Unplugged Nation. Its host, Jay Gruen, sporting a beard, clad in flannel, is at home in the outdoors and wants to show folks that homesteading isn’t as scary as it sounds.

Crab relief money divvied up

Nearly all of the $40,000 raised locally this winter has been dealt out to crabbers who never made it to sea.

Marooned by toxic domoic acid levels in California’s Dungeness crab, fisherfolk have spent the good part of the crabbing season scraping by on whatever work or aid they could find.

The March 5 fish fry at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds, coupled with donations made to the Community Assistance Network, totaled $28,000, CAN Interim Director Stuart Nichols said.

This was divided to provide 56 fishermen who applied with their valid licenses, boat captain’s name and income a $500 check.

Deal inked to install 1.7K solar panels

Harbor Commissioners signed a memorandum of understanding with Trinergy LLC, a Florida company, moving forward with plans to install a solar panel system capable of  harnessing enough sunlight to produce 539 kilowatts of electricity.

The system includes more than 1,700 solar panels with the potential to produce more than 100 percent of the Harbor’s electrical power needs. Any excess power would be sold back to the Pacific Power via the power grid.

The system has a potential savings of $24,400 annually on the harbor’s  electric bill, according to a Harbor District solar review update.

The Yurok Tribe put its newly adopted GMO ban on display during a two-day indigenous food sovereignty gathering in Klamath this week, with  tribes from around the nation sharing seeds and ideas for cultivating traditional foods.

The GMO ordinance is the first enforceable ban on genetically engineered (GE) crops and animals enacted by a sovereign nation in the U.S., and is meant to be a model for other tribes.

Developing the law, then sharing and discussing it during the two-day conference, was done through a $50,000 National Congress of American Indians grant.

However, the commercial Dungeness crab fishery remains closed north of the Sonoma-Mendocino county line.

The recreational Dungeness fishery in Humboldt and Mendocino County ends July 30.
