Propane Prices/Membership 2009

Just took a 5 gal tank to be refilled at Surburban. With the membership price of $1.88 a gal, it took only $8 and change to fill the tank. Then went across the street and noticed that at the refill station it would be $21.99! What a savings. The Homeowners Assn hopes to increase membership from last years 183 to 200 this year, increasing the savingings with Surburban even more (200 homes is a price break goal). Be sure to join or rejoin this year to benefit us all!

Wild and Scenic Film Festival

DID you go? It just gets better every year. I volunteered with a friend to seat kids/parents at the Nevada Theatre on Sat. morning. The place was PACKED and the kids were just enthralled with the films (all geared to kid audience). One really good film was "a day at the Yuba river" as told by 3 dogs, (no sound, just dogs in river bliss set to music) with lots of underwater scenes. The dogs in the film were there for Q & A afterward. Went back Sunday for my "must sees." Lots of Cascade Shores folks in town for the events. Saw Matt and Michelle Margoles with their handsome boys, and Chuck and Marvina Jaffee. Chuck lives on Mt. View and does the movie reviews for the Union, and had the best Oscar party I've even been to. He is my movie "Guru" and I love to talk film with him.

4 Way Stop/Chipping/Small Town

Sunday: did you see the CHP hanging around the 4 way stop by the store? He said there have been complaints of drivers running the 4 way stop signs at full speed, so we will be seeing some CHP down here to write tickets. You've been warned . . .

Well, to all of you who have neatly stacked brush out on the street, bad news. Looks like the chipping program won't be funded this year (heard from Chief David Ray). The CSHA is trying to look into an alternative to having to haul all the way to Mc Courtney dumps. This is looking to be another dry year, and fire hazard will be high. We're all going to have to find a way to get the stuff chipped or removed to reduce the danger.

I went to Farmers Insurance by SPD to pay a bill, and the receptionest said, "hey, Wanda (Mertons) has chickens and too many eggs. Want to buy a dozen fresh eggs for $1.50?" Had to pass cause I just got some, but I'll be back. Anyway, love the small town feel of that. AAA in the Bay Area never offered me eggs.
