Also 'right on'-worthy:
This morning Terri Vroman-Little, one of three runners involved in last year's hit-and-run on Old Arcata Road, put on her Boston hat, laced up and went for her first run in seven months.

Not quite sure what Chinn's winning, but it sure looks fancy! Can you help figure out what she won, why she won it, and the significance of it?

The vernal equinox will occur at precisely 4:02 am on Wednesday, March 20. The word equinox is derived from the Latin words meaning “equal night.” Days and nights are approximately equal everywhere and the Sun rises and sets due east and west.
Don't forget to make no adjustments to your clock. This is also a good time to make no changes to the batteries in your smoke detectors.
Good news for outdoor enthusiasts: the county is working to acquire the McKay Tract, a large forest behind Eureka. It's not a done deal, but things are looking good. If successful, it could double the size of land managed by the Humboldt County Public Works Department, and create a tremendous new destination for recreation and outdoor activities in Eureka’s backyard.
The county says it will be solicit public input in April. How can the McKay park learn from the mistakes and successes of the Arcata Community Forest?
- A timber-harvest element that would pay for the management [think Arcata Community Forest]
- Hiking, biking, and equestrian trails
- Carbon [sequestration] markets
- Conservation easement
