Today's Features

  • Most people do not recognize the name Christian Lopez. Most people recognize the name Derek Jeter, the iconic shortstop for the New York Yankees. Their names now are linked forever.

    On July 9, Derek Jeter joined a very elite baseball group when he completed his 3,000th hit. All the hits came while playing for one team, the New York Yankees. That July day was amazing because Jeter had five hits in five at bats. That is a challenge. But more amazing was that his second hit of the day was a home run which was his 3000th hit.

  • Hermit crabs and fish might not be the first choice for a wonder pet, but some students think they’re pretty cool.

    A few goldfish make their home in the library at Creekside Elementary School in Sonora. Susan McEwen said they might not be used too much for teaching but they often calm the students or are a way to get someone new to open up and feel more comfortable.

    “Every child that comes in the library will gravitate to the fish tank,” McEwen said. “They all seem to love watching them and they ask daily if they can feed them.”

  • Sometimes I experience small flashes of realization about how complicated I make life.

    It seems like we live in a society obsessed with being entertained.

    Not only being entertained but going to the most hip and expensive place or having the most up-to-date technology that only stays current for a year and then we just have to get the new version.

  • The Chattering Magpies, otherwise known as Greta Gillmeister and Lorinda Jones, released their first CD and DVD combo called “Celtic Passages.”

    The relaxation DVD was produced through a collaboration with videographer Dan Boone.

    Using a harp, dulcimer, Irish flute and whistle, the duo performs traditional Celtic music in a collection of airs, jigs, hornpipes, reels and polkas.

    Gillmeister and Jones are music therapists and knew the relaxation CD would come in handy for some “chill out” time.

  • Many of my loyal readers will remember that I have a niece who married in Hawaii a year ago Christmas and had a reception in Louisville last spring, and I had the honor, I think, of making their wedding cake. On Aug. 7, another niece married in Burlington, Vt. It was a weekend to remember and I brought home some recipes to share with you.
