CAROL SAYS: ” In your paper coming out this week please remind “the people” that the eclipse is Monday the 21st , and will reach 86% at around 10:15 AM in Downieville. Not to confuse things , but in your paper this week you would word it “this Monday” , August 21. Now I am writing this Sunday night and this Monday would be tomorrow which is not the “this Monday” that you would have in your paper . When your paper comes out on Wednesday for Liz and Thursday for Jill, you would write “this Monday” because at that point in time it would be “this Monday” . I am excited about it !”

I’m sick to my soul over this last weekend’s violence in Virginia and the many awful messages from the lips of #O.N.E. Trump. The one comment made by a “supporter” of #O.N.E. keeps playing back in my mind. It was by a Nazi, White Supremist being interviewed on camera. He justified being armed, carrying a gun, being always ready to be violent, “I want to be violent” he said…and then….. and then he said, “it’s good to have a racist for President… we need someone more racist… someone who didn’t give his daughter to a Jew.” How do we have a President who is so ignorant to what a huge part of his “base” believe and wish for. There is no way to step away from Donald Trump being a dangerous man. Dangerous for our country, our families and the world.
Read Robert Koehler to understand North Korea, lest we forgot… and he writes about profit motivations, Lawrence Wittner talks about mentally unstable leaders, Jose Orosco discusses the meaning of love, and Kary Love discusses what exactly nonviolent resistant is and why it is a good thing. Local news, the Board of Supervisors and things to do this week. Carol reminds us about the Eclipse, and the Marmots on the Sierra Buttes.
So speaking of the Buttes the photo this week was taken by David Marshall and shows the final leg of the trip to the spectacular view from the Sierra Buttes Lookout, in case you want something to strive for before the snow comes.
