Keep and eye out for Rosie the Great Dane

Pam, who lives on the right hand corner of BQHill Rd and Gas Canyon is looking for her Great Dane who got out of the yard Friday morning. Rosie is new to the household, and may not know her way home. Also, she has seizures and needs her meds daily, so if you see her, GRAB HER and call Pam at 265-2363, as Pam and her family are worried sick about her. Rosie is a full grown adult of blue/gray color. Thank you. She may be trying to find her old home, which is unknown. Rosie came into the shelter as a stray.
The 40th Anniversary of CSHA was today, and I think a good time was had by all. After a one hour meeting and question period, and a guest speaker from FONA (Federation of Neighborhood's Assn) on wildfire safety, cake and beverages were served to the 40 or so attendees. Thanks all who came. The association works for you. We (the Board) welcome your attendance and input at meetings.

Perusing 2 weeks of the Union/Wildflowers

Still catching up from 10 days in Oregon, then 2 in Bay Area. The only article in the Union concerning Cascade Shores was Mar. 24th when a RABID skunk attacked 2 dogs on Summit Ridge Dr. at 2:30 am. Though the dogs had their shots, one that got bit still had to be quarantined for 30 days just to be sure . . . . So make sure your best friend has his/her boosters up to date. My vet (Mother Lode) has a low cost clinic 1st Sat. of each month if you need to save $. I've only seen a skunk here once in 10 years. We have them in the back yard almost daily in the Bay Area. The weiner dog has been skunked there at least 5 times (weiner's never learn.) But never bitten . . . . Scary. They say if you see a skunk in daytime be very wary. They are mostly nocturnal, and if out in daytime they may be sick . . . .
Paper says it's a great year for wildflowers due to the great rains. So take a trip to Bridgeport to the Buttermilk Trail. You can go guided or self-guided. It's such a beautiful hike along the Yuba. One of the best trails in the county.
