Author’s letter to Crescent City

Author Inette Miller and husband ’Iokepa Hanalei ’Imaikalani left their possessions behind and moved to Hawaii 15 years ago. Miller has written memoirs about that experience and her return trip to the mainland for a book tour that included a fateful stop in Crescent City.

Nearly two years ago, author Inette Miller of Lihue, Hawaii, and husband ’Iokepa Hanalei ’Imaikalani were traveling through Del Norte County on a months-long book tour when a car accident took them on a detour to Crescent City.

The two were driving up U.S. Highway 199 through Hiouchi when they were struck head-on by a vehicle whose driver fled the scene and was later arrested for hit-and-run and driving under the influence. 

Miller was admitted to Sutter Coast Hospital with a concussion, six broken ribs and temporary amnesia.

One had allegedly taken a baseball from another student.

Another knew who might have written graffiti in the girls’ restroom.

The field trip was actually part of Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Beaman’s presentation of what judges, district attorneys, juries, defense attorneys and witnesses do in the course of a day. 


Tall Ships: A tour in the rough

The Hawaiian Chieftain, foreground, and the Lady Washington prepare to sail.

Not so on the Hawaiian Chieftain Saturday evening.

But from the looks on some of the passenger’s faces, confidence wasn’t a reigning emotion at first.

The wind was howling from all directions, the water even in harbor was white-capped and gray.

The seven-man crew — five of whom were women — appeared calm, despite the gale warning received over the radio and the gentle bobbing of the docked boat.
