Feb. 23, 2010 — It’s hard to keep up with the newest innovations of technology. The latest is the new smartphones that not only can send and receive phone calls (an old-fashioned way of communicating, or so it seems), send text messages, e-mails and photos almost instantaneously to almost anyone in the world.
Feb. 16, 2010, — Once again it is time for the paper to explain its rules when covering election news.

Feb. 9, 2010 — I love St. Valentine’s Day. It is one of my favorite holidays. I like buying the silly little valentines with the strange little sayings and leaving them on co-workers desks with a piece of candy. I like buying heart-shaped boxes of chocolates for my children. I like sending out cards and small gifts to my nieces and nephew. I have a niece that was born on St. Valentine’s Day. She turns 18 this year. Valdy is her middle name and ironically, her middle name as nothing to with the holiday. She is named after my grandmother.
Jan. 26, 2010 — I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago when Susanville was experiencing a few days of rain and warmer weather. I considered it a preparation for my mini-vacation to Tacoma, Wash. It did rain in Washington the four days I was there, but it was also 50 degrees.
I didn’t mind the mild rain of the Seattle/Tacoma area, but then again, I wasn’t there to sight see. I went to spend time with my middle daughter, whose husband had been deployed at the beginning of 2010 to Afghanistan as an Army medic. I had a three-fold mission of my own. First, to make sure she was OK. Second, to help her buy things for a care package and three, to teach her to knit. I managed all three.
