You can call it a slow news day if you like, but then you’d be ignoring a great cause and a great resource that came across the transom.
– With help from North Coast Rape Crisis Team, Humboldt State University has put together a comprehensive Web site with local resources for survivors of sexual violence. You want to check this out now if, God forbid, you or someone you know should happen to fall victim.
Like earthquake and tsunami preparedness, this is info you want to have at your fingertips in case of emergency. Unfortunately, this kind of emergency is far more likely to strike than the others.
– The Yurok Tribe is hosting its 10th Annual Klamath River Cleanup Saturday. (Read the press release here.) Get together with your community and do these things: help clean up the ghastly illegal dumps along our largest river, and remove some evil invasive species.
It’s happening from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and you want to get there on time and work every goddamn minute of it ‘cause it comes with a FREE GODDAMN SALMON LUNCH, caught and cooked (traditionally) by Yurok tribal members. Plus: a T-shirt.
– Finally: Our own Amy Stewart rocked the Fresh Air!
