NCJ Preview: Opium History, a Softball Swan Song, Birding Dads and Popping Up


This week's cover looks back at Humboldt's history, specifically how opium addiction gripped so many in the 1880s and how it parallels our current opiate crisis. We've also got the story of Hailey Dolcini, a Ferndale-raised softball player whose grit and pitching arm led her to a historic performance in the Women's College World Series. Father's Day weekend has birder Sarah Hobart's thoughts turning to her birding mentor dad and we'll talk about how he instilled curiosity and appreciation for nature in his kids. Lastly, we'll give you a taste of what chef Rochelle Burgess cooked up at her first pop-up event. Hit subscribe for weekly updates on stories from around the county.
