Random Cyclists Showed Up Today

Mike Dronkers / Today @ 11:11 a.m. /

These cheeky Brits, along with a cheeky Bob Ornelas, showed up in Ferndale today. Turns out, they're the Pacific Pedallers (sic), biking their way from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. 

They're also raising money for the UK's version of Wounded Warrior, Help For Heroes and to help fight Alzheimers and dementia.

Good luck, British homies!



3 Feet, It's The LAW! & Trails In The Dunes

Cliff Berkowitz / Today @ 10:06 a.m. / Trails

The 3 foot passing law that was passed earlier this year, went into effect today adding a new layer of safety to all bike commuters. We also talked about SB1151, a bill that is now on the Governor's desk waiting to be signed. The law would increase traffic fines in school zones. Most of the time today was spent with Carol Van der Meer of Friends of the Dunes about all the various trail opportunities that exist in the Manila Dunes.

Tonight's Cocktail - AppleVodTini A La Blue Lake

Larry Trask / Today @ 12:01 a.m. /

 

DrinkPic

Tonight's cocktail, which we have stupidly named the "AppleVodTini A La Blue Lake" comes to us from dear friends who live, not surprisingly, in the beautiful city of Blue Lake, CA. Most of the ingredients come from their very backyard, but, inasmuch as they probably don't want us tramping through their yard at all hours of the day and night, just source the ingredients as best you can. The more local, the better, obviously.

 

Ingredients;

Humboldt County vodka
Fresh pressed apple cider
Local honey
Colorful flower (for garnish)

Mixing directions:

Combine the ingredients above however you'd like. Me, I'd use a shaker, but whatever. Pour in glass, garnish with a flower, drink and thank your lucky stars you live in Humboldt. 



Slam Poet/Viral Teacher Hero Taylor Mali to Visit CR Friday

Mike Dronkers / Yesterday @ 12:18 p.m. /

College of the Redwoods will present a performance by visiting writer Taylor Mali on Friday, Sept. 19 at the CR Performing Arts Theater. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the reading will begin at 7:00 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $5.00 for students (with student ID) and $10.00 for general admission.

Taylor Mali is one of the most well-known poets to have emerged from the poetry slam movement and one of the few people in the world to have no job other than that of poet. The Taylor Mali style is an incandescent mix of the belly laugh and the quiet hush of subtle insight. The New York Times says "Taylor Mali is a ranting comic showman and literary provocateur…"



Monster Squid Harvest

Mike Dronkers / Yesterday @ 10:59 a.m. / Ocean

El Niño warming conditions have weakened, but were still substantial enough to drive market squid north to the cooler waters off of northern California.

"Southern California Seafoods offloaded about 280,000 pounds last night and we expect to do more than that each night."

 -- Jeff Huffman, Eureka Dock Manager, Wild Planet

Huffman said the squid haul was so substantial that they had trouble locating adequate transportation and ice, and are bringing in ice from Crescent City. Huffman said the squid boats would be in Humboldt for two to three weeks. 

Get down to the docks and get a whiff.

Well, that came out pretty good.
