The Kirk Family of Redway?
This is twice I've seen the last name Kirk show up in the news in the last month or two. Last time, the Times- Standard had a story about some elderly lady, with a last name of Kirk, that led the cops on a leisurely car chase in Southern Humboldt. This time, some guy with the last name of Kirk gets hit over the head with a bottle down on a beach in Redway.
Might they be related to our very own Eric Kirk? I was of the impression he didn't have family up here.
