To any of our returning subscribers: Thank you
Yesterday I renewed my subscription to the Times-Standard. I had canceled due to what I had perceived as regular, unwarranted attacks by a regular Sunday columnist on his non-Fortuna neighbors. Less hate, please. Having said that I feel it important for the community, especially now, support local, REAL journalism. Here’s to another year’s subscription and thanks, in advance, for all you’ll do for us!

Even now, life on this rock is a big bowl of cherries
Sometimes we need to be reminded that life really is “a bowl of cherries.” Life may be strange at times (like right now), but it still is one big, big bowl of cherries.
And that is why I believe that this would be a good time for the National Geographic Channel to re-release the documentary series “One Strange Rock.” If you think this is a good idea, then please go to www.nationalgeographic.com/tv/feedback. Look for CHAT at the bottom right and make a request to re-release this documentary series about all of us, and about sharing life on earth (which is what we are all doing right now).

Come on, people — leash and pick up after your dogs
It is 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 22. Our day together is shot to all hell thanks to some idiots on the beach at King Salmon. I wanted to take my wife, and dogs for a short walk on the beach in nearby King Salmon. Some people are just plain STUPID! Letting your dogs run onto, and around the beach unleashed is being totally illogical, and using no common sense. Also, one last thing. It is real cerebral letting your dog defecate on the beach and leaving it. Don’t worry about the germs, or other bad things in that stool!
