Sept. 10, 2013 — I am pleased to announce the Veterans Service Office is now outreaching to veterans working as peace officers at High Desert State Prison. Ed, Dennis and myself set up a booth inside the visitor’s center from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. We brought with us printed information about California Veterans license plates, VA home loans and G.I. Bill apprentice benefits.
Sept. 10, 2013 — As I see my Facebook acquaintances from college post about their first week back at George Fox University, a wave of nostalgia comes over me, and I am a wee bit jealous of all the incoming freshman at my alma mater.
After 16 years of being a full-time student, suddenly, poof, I am done. I feel like education has been ripped away from me in one swift motion. I mean, this is the very first September I will not be in school since kindergarten. No more frequent Taco Bell late night runs with my best friend, no more falling asleep in coffee shops over media ethics papers, and no more weekend Portland trips dressed as hipsters.
Sept. 10, 2013 — The events of Sept. 11, 2001 affected every person in the United States and possibly the world.
While President Franklin D. Roosevelt called Dec. 7, 1941 “a date which will live in infamy” after the surprise Japanese attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, most Americans are too young to remember that early Sunday morning raid 72 years ago that killed 2,225 servicemen and wounded 1,143 more, sank or damaged all eight American battleships in the harbor and thrust our country into the fray of World War II.
Sept. 3, 2013 — It’s been a long, winding and at times bitter and contentious road leading up to the Sept. 10 recall election in Lassen County’s Supervisorial District 5 — but now the moment of that decision has nearly arrived.
More than 2,000 (2,373 to be a little more precise) voters reside in district 5, and slightly more than half of those folks (1,211) are eligible to cast either vote-by-mail or absentee ballots. The remainder may cast their votes in polling places next Tuesday.
Lassen County Clerk Julie Bustamante advises voters not to mail their ballots to the election office after Tuesday, Sept. 3 because the ballots must be received by the clerk’s office by 8 p.m. Election Day. Postmarks do not count.
