 Leonard Smith didn’t mince words.

He ignored the bitter cold wind coming off the water at Beachfront Park on Saturday and faced his fellow amateur radio operators.

“If you have a runner in distress, that’s what I want to hear about. If net control asks for names, get it,” he said. “If you see someone who looks like they’re in distress, sounds like they’re in distress or smells like they’re in distress, stop them and check them out.”

Art association holds first Oct. festival

Scores of paintings and photographs by local and nationally recognized artists will be available for purchase Saturday at the Coast Redwoods Art Association’s first-ever October Festival of Art.

The festival will be held as a fundraiser for the non-profit Crescent Harbor Art Gallery. It will be one of the few times the art association has held an auction, said President Rich Redder.

“We have about 55 to 60 paintings right now that we’re going to auction off,” he said. “What we need is a lot of people to come.”
