Mar 05 2013, 11:34 AM
I avoid reading newspapers because most specialize in bad news. Instead, I let wife Margaret break the bad news to me gently. For example, yesterday she read to me a piece in The Beachcomber reporting that Island Lumber will sell liquor. The owner was quoted as saying something like, “Adding alcohol will enhance the shopping experience when you’re looking for plumbing supplies or straight 2-by-4s.”

Horse riders: Please scoop the poop, too | Letter to the Editor
Mar 12 2013, 11:06 AM
Regarding the letter titled “Owners need to scoop poop” (March 6), I heartily agree. I have been bike riding all over Island Center Forest very regularly for quite some time. A group of us go religiously and fervently discuss the plethora of said poop on a regular basis. However, we feel that the real poopertrators are the horse owners. I guess that it is easy to ignore your pony’s pies when they fall behind you on the trail, although they do make a decided plopping sound. I wish that the horse owners would please pick up after themselves.
