Salvation Army Feeds Hundreds Hot Thanksgiving Meals

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The demand for help this holiday season is growing.  Many people are struggling to make ends meet or to even afford a meal. Every person has their own story. Some, like Kao Saechao, were comfortable enough to share theirs. He’s fallen on tough times and knows he’s not alone. “I’m just in a bad situation right now but I’m on the right track,” he said.  “We have all been through something, you know. I’m not the only one,” said Nord Young, who is a veteran.   Young is grateful to sit amongst other men who have served, feeling the love and support that comes with Thanksgiving. It’s a feeling that was once lost.   “It’s about family and love, and happiness and being thankful,” he said. The Salvation Army provided hundreds of meals to people in need Thursday.   Captain Larry Carmichael with The Salvation Army says people experiencing what they call pandemic poverty is at an all-time high.   “Our food pantry is serving 220% more every single week than historical average,” he explained. A free hot Thanksgiving meal for Eugene Corcino is…

Hollister Mourns Retired Officer’s Loss In Colorado Shooting

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A California community is mourning with a recently retired police officer whose son and nephew were killed in a shooting in Colorado. Another son of former Hollister police Sgt. Ray Celano was also wounded in Saturday’s shooting near a skate park in Colorado Springs. Police say 14-year-old Dominic Celano was found dead and his cousin, 23-year-old Gage Celano, died after being taken to the hospital. Twelve-year-old Dylan Celano was hospitalized. Police in Hollister say Ray Celano moved to Colorado Springs with his family last month to be closer to relatives. (© Copyright 2021 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

Number Of US Abortions May Be Increasing Slightly After Decreasing For Decades

NEW YORK (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — After a long decline, abortions in the U.S. appear to be inching up, though officials are cautious about calling it an upward trend because a government report issued November 24 is incomplete. National abortion figures in 2017 reached their lowest level since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortions. But the next two years, there were small increases in the abortion rate and numbers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. They rose 1% in 2018. The next year, the numbers increased 2% and the rate per 1,000 women of child-bearing age rose 1%. The CDC report represents the latest available data on U.S. abortions. But it must be interpreted cautiously because it is based on voluntary reporting and is not comprehensive, experts say. Among its limitations: It does not include abortions from three states — including California, the nation’s most populous state. Other states may have significant undercounts. Those omissions mean that as much as 30% of the nation’s abortions may not be captured in the CDC data, according to officials at the Guttmacher Institute, a New…

Second Suspect Sought After Surveillance Video Shows Thieves Steal Dump Truck From Irrigation District In Yuba County

BROWNS VALLEY (CBS13) — A second suspect has been identified after a brazen burglary was caught on a surveillance camera at a tiny irrigation district in Yuba County. Sean Allen Lange, 51, of Forbestown is wanted by the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department for several charges including burglary, auto theft, possession of stolen property, and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a prohibited person, according to a press release. Following the arrest of Hubert Townshend on Nov. 5 for possession of stolen property in the irrigation theft investigation, the investigation reportedly led detectives to the second suspect and different location of additional stolen property in Forbestown. In October, thieves broke in and drove off with a dump truck, and a long list of tools, leaving the already small operation in a big bind. Kelly McNally is the general manager of the Browns Valley Irrigation District. “The community is definitely enraged by this theft and takes it personally,” McNally said earlier this month. Surveillance video shows thieves driving off with the district’s dump truck. The crooks also took off with two trailers, three ATVs and a…

The ‘Simple’ Solution

Editor: There is a clear solution to all modern day woes. It would solve a host of issues: economic issues, transport issues, social equity issues, religious issues, male/female issues, homeless issues, healthcare issues, drug issues, poverty issues, crime issues, waste issues, energy issues, pollution issues, war issues and the overall greatest issue, Climate Change (“Racing the Rise,” Nov. 11).

Local Nonprofits Need Your Support on #GivingTuesday

We have all heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday. A few years ago, a new event was added to our list: Giving Tuesday, which is reserved for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as a day to encourage people to do good and give back to charities.  Humboldt County has a strong sense of community and a long tradition of supporting local businesses, artists and nonprofits. Historically, our unique location behind the Redwood Curtain has required that we become creative and self-reliant, and our region’s farmers, local artists, small business owners and nonprofit organizations are the fruit of this Humboldt spirit. However, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen unprecedented social and economic impacts in our community. Many people are now working from home semi-permanently, community events have been canceled, people are shopping online instead of downtown and local businesses are closing their doors. As a community, we need to make a conscious effort to support what we value. If we value our local farmers, artists and small businesses, we need to invest in them by supporting them financially.  Equally…

A Moral Defense of Gardening

Editor: “Gardening as a Moral Conundrum” by Lauri Rose is a highly amusing and entertaining way to regard gardening, enjoyed by so many of us, as many acts of murder (Nov. 11). But the article may be troubling to some people who may take it seriously because they have neither the time nor inclination to fully contemplate what gardening involves. I submit the following as an antidote. We humans must obtain food, but we are not obligated to do so by acts of violence, as are other animals who are not endowed with higher intelligence. If we are to abide within our higher consciousness, we need not, and must not, allow ourselves to harbor murderous feelings toward other creatures. We can choose to eat plants instead of other animals. We may also choose to use Hav-a-Hart traps so as to peacefully relocate furry creatures that would interfere with our gardening plans. We may also create raised beds to avoid that problem entirely. As for the other creatures — the weeds, birds, insects, worms, bacteria, etc. — they will naturally adjust to disruptions we must cause…

End ‘Predatory’ Insurance

Editor: Our local city councils and community service districts are signing a resolution for positive change in Humboldt County. The issue: Will California adopt a universal, not-for-profit, single-payer healthcare system? The bills currently in place to establish a single-payer system are: CalCare, Assembly Bill 1400 and in Congress, House Resolution 1976. This resolution of support for the bills has now been signed by the city councils of Trinidad, Arcata, Blue Lake and Eureka and the community service districts of Manila and Willow Creek. The resolution will send a message to our legislators in Sacramento that we must end today’s usurious, wasteful, predatory health insurance practices that unilaterally raise premiums, constrain us within narrow networks, deny care and question and control our medical providers’ prescribed procedures and drug treatments. Corporate health insurance agencies (and Big PhaRMA) waste 30 cents on the dollar on profit, big salaries and bonuses, shareholder payouts, advertising (guess who pays for all those TV ads), lobbying and bureaucratic overhead. A single-payer healthcare system would give every resident a lifetime card guaranteeing access to doctors and hospitals of choice, for any medical treatment,…

Public Health Confirms Two Hospitalizations and 10 New COVID-19 Cases

Humboldt County Public Health confirmed 10 new COVID-19 cases today, with two hospitalizations reported of a resident in their 50s and another in their 60s. Earlier today Public Health released a COVID-19 video update featuring Public Health Director Sofia Pereira who talked about the pending milestone of 10,000 local COVID-19 cases confirmed — which she said may have already been met given the increasing availability of at-home COVID tests — and the progress that’s been made in the county’s pandemic response. Public Health is reminding residents to practice social distancing, wash hands frequently and plan safer gatherings, especially with the return of colder weather, upcoming holidays and more people traveling and spending time indoors.   The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has designated Humboldt County as an area of high community transmission and recommends holding gatherings outdoors when possible, limiting the number of participants in indoor gatherings, adjusting the indoor layout to allow for physical distancing and enhancing the ventilation of indoor spaces.
