Feb. 22, 2011 — Since I started working at the Lassen County Times in 2005, I have kept every single newspaper, wondering what would be the best way to archive my favorite articles.
About two and a half years ago, I found that solution, but had accumulated approximately 156 newspapers. So, when I found a spare moment or was feeling overly ambitious, I would work on cutting and pasting article after article onto a 12 by 12 piece of paper that was put into a scrapbook. Finally, I have started to see the light at the end of the tunnel on that project, but it has been fun to look at some of the stories from the past, especially from the early days.

Feb. 22, 2011 — Today, as I browsed the Political Ticker and entertainment news on CNN my attention was grabbed by the latest survey question: Should Lindsey Lohan go to jail for theft?
According to the reported results as of about 8:36 a.m. 89 percent of survey respondents say “no,” 11 percent “yes.”
While I haven’t read the actual police report, I can only make comment on the so-called facts being reported to date. It has been alleged that she visited a jewelry store in her neighborhood and walked out the door with a necklace valued at $2,500, a cost that raises the criminal stakes to the felony level.
