Keeping the Skies Safer for Everyone

The topic was how to stay safe, a serious subject when you’re talking about flying. Those gathered had plenty of experience – some well over 50 years – and amidst the comraderie and fun, everyone gave their full attention. A group of 75 to 80 pilots participated at the FAA Safety Team (FAAST) safety training [...]

You’re Never Too Old to Live Your Dream!

Life can get in the way of achieving our dreams. After a certain point, or age, many of us figure it’s too late to grasp that brass ring. But after speaking to a few octogenarian pilots at a FAA Safety Team (FAAST) training seminar I attended this past weekend, I’d say age doesn’t have to [...]

Matt’s Chats with Christine Cantera

Over the years I’ve built a number of friendships entirely on the Internet.  Either by luck or coincidence, I’ve stumbled across some fascinating, funny, talented, amazing people and while the relationships are virtual, the friendships aren’t.  It’s really cool to get to know someone on the other side of the world without ever so much as [...]

Judicial System Shouldn’t Treat Addicts, Mentally ill, as Criminals

My family’s struggles turned into our darkest hour. After my son Thom was arrested on March 20, 2013 and again on April 11 of 2013, my husband and I took our son’s keys and disabled his vehicle so he wouldn’t kill anyone, including himself, driving high. It had become grievously clear that, while well-intended, Shasta [...]

Just Sayin’: Run Out of Gas

I have always had a great deal of respect for those in our midst who make a long-standing commitment and follow through week in and week out, whether anyone is looking or not.
