As Notre Dame burns, America dismantles itself

As the ashes of the cathedral still smolder, the French nation is planning the rebuilding. Yet here in America we are caught up with the tearing down of statues, historical figures, our heritage and even our common language. And replace it with what? Ever read Orwell’s “1984”?

League of Women Voters thanks event supporters

Friday, April 12, The League of Women Voters of Humboldt County presented the 28th State of Community Luncheon. The Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, Rex Bohn, described the State of the County. Dell’ Arte and Michele McKeegan were honored for their civic contributions. In the keynote speech the Humboldt/Del Norte Film Commissioner, Cassandra Hesseltine, provided insight into the desirability of our beautiful community for film productions.

This annual event is well supported by the community and the attendees filled the Adorni Center to its capacity. This community support would not be possible without the assistance of some of our community leaders. The League would like to thank the following community leaders who spent time and effort to make the State of the Community Luncheon a success:

  • Judy Anderson
