The temperature this last week in our community has been warm, especially the first part of the week up to news submission time. The report given to us was at least six days over 100 degrees. We know that this is the San Joaquin Valley and this is July and put those two together and what you get is hot weather but we have been spoiled a bit in early July with a small reduction in the heat.

We cannot change the events of that day, but we can remember those lost and the many public servants who died trying to save them. The date that marks this sad day has passed and as we look toward a brighter future, we honor those who continue to serve our nation's people ...

The dreaded picture... When I started writing this column over a year ago, I really, really did not want a picture of myself printed! I've always enjoyed reading the other columns in The Leader and appreciated the pictures that went along with them. It gives readers a chance to associate names with faces... I guess that I just was not sure a picture could be taken that wouldn't make my family and friends run for the hills! Even after Oakdale Leader Editor Marg Jackson asked my daughter to send a picture of me in for the column, it ...
