Due to an unfortunate episode when I was in high school, I don't drink a lot of rum drinks. But that's my loss, especially in the summer because keeping several varieties of rum in your liquor cabinet opens up a world of tropical drink capabilities. Today we're featuring a delightful summer cocktail that uses spiced rum and coffee liquor for a delicious cocktail
1 oz. Captain Morgan® Original Spiced Rum
0.5 oz.coffee liqueur
5 oz. cola
- In an ice filled collins or rocks glass combine all the ingredients.
- Stir to blend.
- Garnish with a lime wheel and/or cinnamon stick.

Emly and Cliff talk with Mark Andre about the Arcata Ridge trail, and the fact that it is close to completion. We explore what is left and the long journey and the process it took to get there. This trail was done mostly with support from community efforts and not public funding.

This morning I spoke with Tammy Falor who volunteers with the Humboldt County Animal Shelter. There have a flood of new dogs at the Animal Shelter has caused an over-crowded situation. There are many wonderful dogs ready to be adopted. There are also several that need some medical attention. The shelter will take care of that, but then those dogs will need to fostered. Fostering a dog is a great chance to test drive a pooch to see if you are a good match. Go to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter in McKinleyville to see them in person. You can also go to petharbor.com or Facebook or one of the many rescue groups in our area.

Tomorrow's Ocean Night is shaping up nicely. Last week, local artist Matt Beard spoke about "What The Sea Gives Me," in which he is featured. This week, filmmaker Marcy Cravat joined us to talk about her film, Angel Azul.
Nutshell: This sculptor threw a bunch of statues into the waters off Mexico mainly to watch coral reefs grow on them. Turns out, something else started happening.
Ocean Night is at the Arcata Theater Lounge tomorrow night at 6:30 pm. Advance tickets are recommended.
