Sara Bareilles and Guy Fieri are Taking COVID-19 Seriously and So Should You

Posted By on Fri, Apr 3, 2020 at 10:36 AM

Yesterday People reported that Eureka's singer-songwriter and person who's made me cry with songs about pie Sara Bareilles announced on an Instagram story that she contracted but fully recovered from COVID-19. “I had it, just so you know. I’m fully recovered, just so you know,” she says in the video as she takes what appears to be a very responsible socially distant solo walk. Along with some shots of squirrels and pigeons, she adds, “I am just thinking about all of the people who are walking through this really tricky time and sending a lot of love and just being really grateful for every easy breath and every day that I get to be walking around.” So no, having the voice of an angel who knows my soul does not protect you from the virus. Stay home.

A Southern Humboldt Feast

Posted By on Tue, Oct 1, 2019 at 8:59 PM

This past weekend was a celebration of Southern Humboldt bounty in Garberville, with the Feast of Fields hosted by Southern Humboldt Business and Visitors Bureau. After Friday's Meet the Farmers Dinner at the Historic Benbow Inn, participants strolled Southern Humboldt Community Park on Saturday, sampling local produce, foods and beverages. The fruits of the region were represented via barbecue, locally made wine and beer, fruits and vegetables, oysters, sushi and more. The Garberville Rotary was on hand for drink sales.

Photos from the 57th Klamath Salmon Festival

Posted By on Mon, Aug 19, 2019 at 4:35 PM

Given the last few years of wildfire smoke-filled skies, it was a relief for a large crowd of attendees to only smell smoke from the traditional salmon fire pit at the 57th annual Klamath Salmon Festival on Saturday, Aug. 17. This year's theme was "Skue’n ‘Owook, Can’t Wait for Tomorrow," which linked Yurok Tribe plans for the removal of the Klamath River dams and the reintroduction of the California condor in Northwestern California. (See the slideshow below for highlights of the event.)

  • Thousands gathered on the Arcata Plaza to stand in line to buy oysters, listen to music or have a picnic on the grass.

The 29th annual Arcata Bay Oyster Festival managed to pack the Arcata Plaza with thousands of attendees on Saturday, despite some unusual drama in the days before the event. First there was the local beer controversy and then the last-minute health crisis — oops, a math error, no crisis — regarding the safety of the 130,000+plus local oysters from Humboldt Bay to be eaten at the event, which is organized by Arcata Main Street as its primary fundraiser.

The early morning foggy overcast burned off in early afternoon for the usual event line up of live music, an oyster-calling contest for children and adults, and the Shuck & Swallow oyster-eating contest, as well as the food and beer venues. See more about winners of the Best Oyster contest here, and a slideshow of the day's highlights below.

  • In a Gensaw family tradition, Sam and Donovan Gensaw helped their grandfather Danny Gensaw cook fresh salmon over an open fire for the Salmon Festival.

The tasty smell of fresh Klamath River salmon cooking the traditional way over an open fire mingled with the tangy smell of smoke from wildfires at the Yurok Tribe's 56th annual Klamath Salmon Festival on Sunday. The Yurok tribe had canceled serving salmon in 2016 and 2017 due to low fish runs.

The event's annual parade featured two grand marshals who are military veterans, Joe Pitt (89) of Klamath, and Irving Wilder, of Weitchpec.

In a new addition to Sunday's usual family fun, live music, car show and a wide array of vendors and information booths, seven expert traditional basket weavers from different local tribes worked in a tent area filled with different types of ceremonial regalia, basketry and other cultural objects. See the slideshow below for highlights.

  • Does this make Guy Fieri look like he has a halo? Yes, it does.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced its "Class of 2019" inductees and among the stars of film, TV, stage and music to receive a star on the Walk of Fame is — holy moly, stromboli — one Guy Fieri of Ferndale.

No dedication ceremony dates have been announced yet but expect the host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (it filmed in Humboldt once, you might have heard about it), Guy's Grocery Games and Rachel vs. Guy: Kids' Cook-off  (shama-lama ding-dong, when does he sleep?) to unveil his polished pink star sometime next year. Righteous.

The city of Trinidad turned into a giant parking lot on a beautiful calm Sunday morning to handle the large crowd of attendees at the 61st annual Trinidad Fish Festival. Street corners and lawns were filled with yard sales, while the main attraction was the coho salmon from Alaska being barbecued for lunch next to the school.

Trinity Street was filled with live music and the usual booths of arts and crafts vendors and a number of community organizations. The walk up Trinidad head to tour the old light house attracted a lot of hikers, as did the open house at the Humboldt State University Marine Lab. See the slideshow below for highlights of the day.
