Obituaries for March 24, 2015
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 — Everyone knows the ship of state frequently sails into uncharted waters. And every once in a while the captains who sail that ship steer it right onto a rocky beach and wreck it.
A case in point — the Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District’s Feb. 25 decision to terminate its deputy watermaster just three days before the local irrigation season began Sunday, March 1.
Then, just two days later, the board schedules a special meeting for Monday, March 2 with a single item on the agenda — “Consider and possibly retain deputy watermaster for the 2015 water season.”
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 — It’s usually chocolate or ice cream, but this Lent I must give up something different — reading sad news stories that involve children.
The headline read: “Toronto boy dies after wandering away from apartment.” Did I really need to read on?
No, but I did, and then had to explain to my office mate why I was blubbering at my computer. A 3-year-old boy had wandered away from his home during the night and was found dead in the frigid cold the next morning.
Could I leave it at that? No.
