What blessings abound! The room is glamorous and I think I'll grab a sleeping bag and sleep on theRead More floor one night just to enjoy that neat T,V. with the girls ( and have those soft lights above the dropped crown molding glowing.) Thank you so much all you generous and talented people who made it possible. Brookelyn and Breezy's Memaw

This was a great event. The stories of these people and organizations made me happy I share the sameRead More community as they do. Congratulations to the honorees...and thanks Dave for covering.

Wow...this is super sad. I was running in that, but the 5k instead of half-marathon. My dad had toldRead More me that someone had collapsed and died. I never knew him, but losing a life when you didn't deserve to is one of the worst things. He'll be missed in the world.

Thank you

Thanks for the nice comment Yolanda. Please come play if you, your dad, and friends are available!Read More Tournament is Saturday October 22nd. Proceeds will benefit ARF and Pete's children.

Big Pharma is the REAL drug cartel in North America. Their overmedicating of the American publicRead More through obscene advertising leads to nearly 100,000 deaths per year! Prescription drugs are more dangerous than any felony drug substance in the world including heroin, cocaine and even alcohol combined.

Thanks to the Patch for helping to get the word out about NCAPDA's Prescription Drug Awareness MonthRead More initiative. What I would like everyone to know, though, is that although we see certainly see youth as primary targets of this initiative, our goal is to increase awareness about prescription drug dangers among ALL community segments throughout the San Ramon Valley. We plan to provide awareness building programs and resources to our police and fire personnel, civic and business leaders, educators, medical providers and parents, of course. Prescription drug problems can affect anyone at any age, and as my family has so painfully learned, no family or community is immune. Our goal is to pull prescription drug abuse out from under the rug - to expose the impact it's having on our families and to create the open community dialog that can help save lives. Please join NCAPDA in saving our community from experiencing the high death, addiction and crime rates that inevitably result from prescription drug abuse that's spiraled out of control. Please volunteer in whatever way you can by contacting me at info@ncapda.org.

What a beautiful story! Cats, or other pets, certainly have a way of sneaking into our hearts. AsRead More precious as she is, however, my house is full. Between my MIL's home and mine, we have four cats all of whom are former rescued or feral cats. Best of luck to you and Kirby. It doesn't sound as though she needs a home at all; she has one! :)

Kirby sounds exactly like our Pixie Dust, also a foster kitty. I doubt Pixie would adjust to anotherRead More kitty though, she is a kitty on her own terms (she will love you, but if you pick her up, she struggles to get down and then comes running back for my loving). She also takes no nonsense from our 2 dogs (also foster dogs) and will give them a run for their money if they decide to sniff, chase, or nose at her stripy Queenliness. I am so happy that Kirby has found a place until she finds a forever home. I hope that by posting her on Patch and on other news sources, someone discovers how Kirby would complete their home. After all, a house can't be a home without a cat, right? ;-)

Really nice story about Kirby-wish I could take her but I already adopted two brown tabbies and IRead More have no space for another. Gouda came from Valley Humane Society. He is a delightful little guy and always entertaining. I know Kirby would be a great friend for someone who is home a lot. Hope she is adopted soon.

Yes, Bill the One Hundred Club of Contra Costa is a very wonderful organization! The purpose is toRead More provide immediate financial assistance to the spouses and families of our police and firefighter who lose their lives while on duty. Within 48 hours the family receives a check in the amount of $15,000 to help get them through the rough spots. Ongoing, their children are each gifted a bond at Christmas and then a large scholarship each year of their college education. Members of the One Hundred Club pay $100 per year to belong or $1,000 for a lifetime membership. No monthly meeting.......a great BBQ in the summer and a fall general dinner meeting with a great guest speaker. MARSHAL is doing a great service to our first responders by supporting the One Hundred Club in it's endeavors to honor our fallen heroes. Thank you to MARSHAL!!!

Sorry MASHAL about misspelling the name of your fine organization.
