  • Create kid-friendly spaces at home

    Updated Aug 5, 2017

    Maintaining a home that is welcoming and kid-friendly can be challenging. Kids are full of energy and oftentimes put fun ahead of tidiness. But no matter how energetic their youngsters are, parents can still employ several strategies to ensure their homes are both sophisticated and child-friendly. - Consider an open floor plan. Rooms that flow into one another make it easier to keep tabs on children. Such rooms also allow residents and guests to mingle in separate rooms but not be too far away from one another. - Choose...

  • Trump's speech was not Scout-like

    Updated Aug 5, 2017

    We’re a Scouting family. My sons were Boy Scouts, my Eagle Scout grandson is at Scout camp right now. Collectively, my husband and I have 50+ years of professional and volunteer service with the BSA. We support our local troops and the local and national councils. I am invested enough to say that I am livid at what Trump said at the National Jamboree this past week. He was vulgar, political, inappropriate; not surprising. I’m disappointed that the National Council would invite him knowing that most likely this is the kin...

This valuable program will no longer be offered on Mission Road. They must find another space to house their equipment and offer classes. Our community has created unique solutions to needs...

  • Trump continues on his blundering way

    Updated Aug 5, 2017

There is no person in American society today who less embodies the laws of Scouting than President Donald J. Trump, and...

    Updated Aug 5, 2017

    On May 18, I co-hosted the Town Hall Coffee event with our State Senator, Joel Anderson. On June 2, The Village News posted (online) a letter by Pennie Leachman. Ms. Leachman stated that she was disappointed in the Senator's "canned answers". What we heard that night were genuine answers from a genuine man. Perhaps Ms. Leachman mistook prepared, thought-out, and consistent with "canned". Ms. Leachman states she was offended by his answer to a question by Maj. Gen. Anthony Jackson, USMC(Ret) about California policy to tax...

    Updated Aug 5, 2017

    We have a huge house that we bought in 2012. It’s almost 3,000 square feet of space with rooms varying in size from the massive, like our master bedroom which takes up about a third of our upstairs, to the minute, such as our three-quarter bath downstairs near our family room. One of the toughest things for me with so much space was finding a way to decorate it all the way I wanted it without breaking the bank. It’s still a work in progress. After the children moved out earlie...
