Valley Home News Week of May 7, 2014

We were thrilled this week to receive a surprise visit from our Knights Ferry friend Maizie Brown. Years ago, along with many other dedicated folks, Maizie worked tirelessly to help get the measure passed that would provide Rural Fire with much needed funds. We were so happy to have her visit us here in Valley Home. Maizie is a special and much respected friend within both the Valley Home and Knights Ferry communities.

Fishing Report

Growing up, I never used to wear sunglasses. Looking back, I can't believe that I fished as long as I did without sunglasses.

When I asked him how much he paid for them, I laughed at him and told him that I would never pay more than $10 for a pair of sunglasses. A couple of months later, he purchased ...

Fishing Report

Last week while driving to a favorite camping spot of mine, I got behind a boat that was being towed by a small SUV. It wouldn't have been too bad if the boat being towed was small but the boat was a lot bigger than the SUV which is very dangerous. Just because a car or truck can pull a boat or trailer, doesn't mean that it's safe. In the event that they were to blow a tire or have to suddenly stop, there's no way they would be able to gain control of their trailer ...
