In For The Treat

As the mommy of the group it only seems fitting that I pen the piece about the ever so popular Halloween Holiday. Our staff hosts a number of parents, as well as grandparents whom are proving to create all new memories and milestones for staffers. Part of the fun of working alongside one another is watching families grow, both figuratively and literally.

Not Just Yet

Once upon a time stores did not stock Halloween candy in August, Christmas candy in September and business windows were not Holiday-themed prior to the first day of fall. Awww … the good 'ol days.

Back At It

On Thursday, August 6 Oakdale Joint Unified Schools will once again be in session. For a handful of our readers that means nothing. Total enrollment for OJUSD is just shy of 5,300 students. So when I say a 'handful' I mean that quite literally.

I recently happened upon a quote which spoke to me.

The Open Road

The days of summer are ticking by faster than even I can truly fathom. The downside of working for a newspaper publication and a bi-monthly magazine, is that we are always working ahead. We rarely are able to live in the true present moment as we sit at our desks. Looking to deadlines for the next newspaper issue or issue of the 209 Magazine. Honestly, I'm constantly confused as to what day it is. So much so, it's actually an office joke. It's not uncommon to hear me blurt out, 'Is today Friday?' or 'What issue are ...

They Did It Again

Each year I pen this piece or one similar, I think the same thing ... I need to put this topic to rest. Then- before I know it- I'm faced once again with the task and challenge of the birthdays. Yes, plural, the celebration of birth of both my children 24 hours apart (with three years in between).
