I am always amazed at the talent of our youth in Crescent City. On Thursday evening, Dec. 13, the Del Norte High School theatre productions class gave it's first performance of andquot;A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley.andquot;

It was delightful. The players knew their parts, the stage setting was wonderful and the special effects were right on. It was altogether a great Christmas treat. The ageless story of Scrooge was brought to life by the actors, and we could see kindness replace bitterness and greed.

It was a special Christmas gift from the high school to the community and I hope it becomes a tradition. A standing ovation to all who made it a success.
