EID not really concerned about water conservation

EDITOR: Is the EID REALLY concerned with water conservation? NOPE. There is something very, very wrong over at the EID … and it’s easily fixed, but what is their motivation to fix it?

Richard Esposito

Sobbing from examination room No. 2 at Sierra Animal Hospital reminded my wife and me that pets, like all other living things, don’t live forever.

Crib notes: Happy Birthday Girl Scouts! May you have at least 100 more

Julie Samrick

The experiences I had as a Girl Scout back in the 1970s and ‘80s still rank in the top 5 memories of my childhood — like the “tippy test” at camp each summer, when we had to flip a canoe over in the middle of a cold lake, fully clothed, and then get back in […]
