Pebbles in the Well

Today the sun set at 4:23 and the days just keep getting darker, sooner.  I wake up in the dark, go to work in the dark, and leave work in the dark.  And without a window to my classroom, I barely know that the sun exists.  And these months won’t stop any time soon, stretching […]

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

Every year I try to avoid the crazy stress of the the holidays and recapture the magic of Christmas. “Oh, sure,” you’re thinking. With the cards and the decorating, when do I have time? I have my moments when I am swept up and experience that wonderful feeling where anything is possible. You can too. […]

Maybe, Just maybe, A passer-by Or two Will stop. And notice how She is spreading Bread crumbs leading All […]

Dear Fellow Dog Lovers, I’m going to start this post writing about the life of a very special shelter dog. ~In Memory~ Her name was Cassidy when she arrived at WHS on December 2, 2012. She was a Pit Bull Terrier mix and she wasn’t pretty. She always looked worried. She had been found as […]

College football Aggies coach receives honor Dan Hawkins, the 2018 Big Sky Coach of the Year, earned additional honors on Wednesday when he was selected as this year’s Eddie Robinson Award winner, presented to the FCS Coach of the Year. Hawkins is UC Davis’ first Eddie Robinson Award winner and the fourth national coach of the year in the Big Sky’s 56-year history. In just his second season as his alma mater’s head coach, Hawkins took a team that won two games against Division I competition, in each of the two seasons preceding his hire, into one that recorded 10 victories and seven wins against Big Sky teams this year, both new single-season program records. That success led to the Aggies winning the first Big Sky championship in program history, which led to the program’s inaugural FCS postseason appearance and first-ever FCS playoff victory when it topped Northern Iowa in a second round home game.

I hadn’t seen Norm in almost two years. And then on Wednesday I bumped into him in the dairy aisle at Vons. I had to look twice to be sure it was him. Older and grayer, he carried himself with a bit of a stoop and a little shuffle in his gait. Always kind-hearted and […]

Lauren Hill Harmon – ENG 1021 December 12, 2018 I think that the director first showed us the car coming down the road to show us how peaceful and quiet it is behind the car, but I also think the director wanted to show us how abandoned the road was. It looks like it’s daytime […]

Everybody always says, “Christmas is for Children.” Been there, done that.  It was great. However… I’d like to raise a few points on behalf of those who find themselves with a few gray hairs.  Or a lot of them. Christmas is no less magical or profound or sweet or challenging now than it was when we […]
