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 [...]

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. No, I’m not talking about marriage here, although that fits the description. No, I’m thinking more of those who, with no time [...]

•Am I the only person in the world who can’t take a selfie? Distorted nose and one buggy eye, no subject matter…I look like a very ugly fish in every one. •I think I’ve figured out I can’t get help with a selfie. •Tried a new turbo self hair cutter…have this sorta rocky raccoon thing [...]

Lawns Can Remain Happy, Healthy, During Drought

We are coming into a growing season unlike none experienced in nearly 100 years – possibly forever – considering that 100  years ago almost no one had lawns. In Northern California, water conservation requirements are often determined by the water source.  Even the smallest water districts implemented water conservation requirements, and by  summer’s end most districts [...]
