Just in case any of you needed proof that miracles still happen every day, even amid a pandemic, we are wonderfully happy to announce the newest addition to our Journal family, Parker Elizabeth Windham. Little Parker was born May 1 at St. Joseph Hospital, the daughter of Journal advertising manager Kyle Windham and St. Bernard' Academy English teacher Jessi Merrill. Both Parker and the new mom are happy and healthy.

There's still so much to be grateful for in this world, and we at the Journal remain incredibly grateful for the support you — our readers — continue to show. For nearly 30 years, the North Coast Journal has been covering the stories and people you care about in Humboldt County. We’re proud to share our coverage in print and online for free so everyone — with or without internet access or the means to subscribe to a paper — can stay informed, especially during the current COVID-19 crisis.

This week, our ongoing COVID-19 reporting included daily case updates, a detailed look at why testing still remains limited, the push and pull over whether to close beaches statewide, a letter from the local medical society president urging people to listen to public health experts, the latest on Humboldt County's rising unemployment numbers, modifications to the shelter-in-place order and what they mean, a look at why Gov. Gavin Newsom's ambitious program to get hot meals delivered to seniors' homes hasn't panned out and a column from the Humboldt County Office of Education's Peter Stoll on how to talk to children about grief and loss. It’s been a lot.

For the first time in our history, the Journal has created a way for readers to pitch in to help keep our mission going and the newsroom humming through these unprecedented times. (Click here for more information.)
