Creem Poetry

Gather around, kids. I’ll give you an example of how crazy the free market really was. When they first invented bottled water, people didn’t even need it. Or at least they didn’t think they did. Everyone had taps in their homes, just like we do now, except water was a lot cheaper. You wouldn’t believe […]

VOICE OF THE HWY

CrossFit, the branded workout regimen, accused Facebook of being “utopian socialists” and left the platform after the social network deleted a group dedicated to a diet. The move to quit both Facebook and Instagram came in the wake of the decision to delete “without warning or explanation the Banting7DayMealPlan,” a group that advocated a diet aimed at […]

Lake County Record-Bee
Our primary focus is our members, over 460 strong all around the county.  We support and advocate for our members with information and educational opportunities to improve their business bottom line. Our office publishes information several times a week on potential legislative issues that can impact businesses and sometimes just certain business areas. We get calls from members when they are working on expanding their current business or starting a new venture.  Sometimes those calls are seeking information on how best to proceed with their project. As we work with the local governments, many times we can assist in some of the necessary steps to get projects moving forward.  There is a ‘can do’ attitude in local government that wasn’t necessarily the case in prior years. We provide business education workshops to members and non-members in both north county and south county locations.  Our board meetings and third Wednesday dinners are moved around the county every month to various locations allowing members from every corner of the county to conveniently attend.  These functions are always held at member businesses. The Lake County Chamber produces the annual community Awards Stars of Lake County each February.  This event highlights individuals, organizations and businesses which contribute to our communities.  To date over 500 Stars have been awarded and over 1800 entities have been recognized through the nomination process. Every August we partner with the Lake County Office of Education to put on a “Welcome New Educator” reception for new teachers/administers in all the school districts. Each March we continue the tradition of the former Record-Bee Bruno’s Bass Tournament, now known as the Clear Lake Team Bass Tournament, drawing over 125 teams.  Many participants have been attending since the inception in 1988. Each year less than 20% of the participant teams are from Lake County as we draw from well outside the county and California.  The event brings in much needed revenue during a ‘slow tourism’ time of year to many local businesses. Our Chamber has been involved in the Quagga Mussel program in Lake County since its inception in 2008 and we serve as a location to provide the information and required sticker for all vessels. Chamber members and I are board members on the Lake County Economic Development Corporation working on business retention and attraction to bring new revenue to our communities.  We collaborate with all the business associations throughout the county, sharing information to assist their members. Did you know that the Lake County Chamber has a community calendar on our website and that your event can be listed for free.  Events must be of a broad community interest, especially for potential visitors. This means we approve community festivals, outdoor plays, concerts, etc. Yes, we hand out member brochures, maps and information to over 6000 visitors every year.  We also have on hand information about the entire County of Lake; sell history books on the area; sell event tickets for non-profit events and answer questions on a myriad of subjects.  When people, in and out of Lake County, do not know who to call, they call our Chamber. We take pride in finding the answers they seek no matter what the question. To find out more about membership in the Lake County Chamber of Commerce, call me at 263-5092 or visit our website at www.lakecochamber.com.  Our website includes our membership directory which can help you find the goods and services you may be seeking. Is the Lake County Chamber a ‘jack of all trades’, you might consider us such; we also have a great deal of fun and enjoyment as we support our members and our communities!

Victoria Braverman – Haze, Smoke and Mirrors The sky isn’t always blue here. Sometimes there’s a heat haze, sometimes a thick mist drifts inland from the Mediterranean, occasionally there’s a yellowish polluted tinge to the horizon (a reminder of fighting on or near our borders), and once a year there’s the smell of burning and […]

With laughter and mockery closing off wish-fulfillment fantasies set in the familiar world around light novel readers, light novel fantasists escaped into other worlds, taking their everyday Japanese characters with them. These in another world fantasies, sometimes called portal fantasies in English but better known as isekai in Japanese, soon became the dominant genre of light novels, enjoying popularity […]

Like An Anchor

When Paul wrote his epistle to the Galatians, he did so to combat a destructive heresy. From his comments in this letter, it appears that a group of people came through Galatia teaching the Christians there that they had to be circumcised and follow Jewish law in order to receive salvation. Paul refutes this, along […]

Thinking Out Loud

by Ruth Wilkinson Boston was one of our most unique expeditions. Really interesting city, American history machine aside. Cool architecture, good subway, Chinatown, really easy to get lost, terrible maps, good food. Perfect. Some historic churches. Mostly for “freedom” reasons, of one kind or another. We chanced upon one that really struck me. Not as […]
