SUMMER IN SQUAW VALLEY Top ski resort turns into summer wonderland

California is blessed with several top-notch ski resorts and, so often, we just don't think about them once we get past ski season. But for those who love alpine scenery and the fragrance of a summertime forest, ski areas are even more appealing in warm weather.

Pizza Plus made moving day to Ripon great

I've always heard that moving across town is much harder work than moving across country. I thought it was a strange saying until last weekend when we moved less than 10 miles away from our old home. We had been packing boxing for weeks and felt as prepared as could be for our short move from Manteca to the city of Ripon.

Fishing Report

Some of the old timers will tell you that the best way to teach someone how to swim is to push them right into the water. I definitely don't encourage anyone pushing someone into the water but I do see the benefit of not being afraid to try something different. Some of the best advice that I can give a fellow angler is to not be afraid to try something different. I can remember several times that I've been fishing with someone who was using a bait that I would have never tried, catch a fish while fishing ...

Charity Helps But It’s Not The Answer

I've been involved in benevolent projects for many years. Most of these efforts have been buying and distributing food and clothes for the very poor. In recent years I have been involved in Safe Fresh water wells for rural South Africa. As long as I live I will be involved in some type of Christian related humanitarian project at some level. I don't regret being connected to doing something to help people who are hurting. There is a tremendous blessing that comes through handing a kid a new pair of athletic shoes or a new coat. I wish ...
