Forgetting Loyalty

I have been skiing at Alpine Meadows for 60 years. Now, for the first time in memory, Squaw Alpine is not offering senior discounts on passes. They are the only California ski area in Tahoe which does not offer senior discounts.

The only one.

Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Heavenly, Kirkwood, Homewood, and Tahoe Donner, to name a few, all offer senior discounts.

I have no desire to ski at the 26 iconic destinations offered with the Ikon pass. Please just let me ski at home with my grandchildren.

Special Spot

[For Goodness Sake is] one of the most important places in the world to me at this point.

In response to The Great Vacation Rental Debate

Regular Rentals

Progressive communities across California are instituting STR regulations. Placer needs to follow suit.

~ Katy Hover-Smoot, via Facebook

Lack of Decency

Such a sad state of affairs that adults have to be regulated like this. Common sense and respect for (even your temporary) neighbor is a thing of the past.

Awesome Agriculture

Look to Israel: drip irrigation and organic ancient farming techniques. Exporter of beautiful produce.

Lots of Love for Kathleen Jensen

She was such a kind-hearted, loving, and caring human. Kathleen was the first friend I met when I started working at Glenshire Elementary. She was truly the sweetest person. Hugs and prayers to her family.

~ Pamela Stephens Hamilton, via Facebook

She was my friend, my coworker, shopping buddy. She is dearly missed. Love you Kathleen.
