We hope things get squared away at the fairgrounds

We were just talking in our office about how we are going to prepare for next year’s Colusa’s Farm Show (Trust us, a publication such as that takes a lot of planning).

Just as we were doing so we learned that fairgrounds CEO Jonathan Howard had been fired. 

It was some pretty big news, and we’re curious to see how it will all play out.

For one thing, we’re rightfully concerned that the Farm Show still goes off without a hitch. 

We’ll see how it goes and hope it does go well.

In the meantime, the next steps for the fairgrounds and its board of directors is to decide how to proceed. 

The board will discuss its options at a public meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday near Etchepare Hall. The meeting is open to the public.

We hope that any interested parties turn out for the meeting, because it could go a long way in showing the board just how important this decision will be.

Garamendi’s honoring of area women a great thing

Thirty-eight women living in the 3rd Congressional District honored by Congressman John Garamendi at a ceremony last week.

It’s an annual honor that we really like spotlighting.

All the women Garamendi recognized come from diverse professional backgrounds, including public service, business, education, local government and the military. 

“It’s always a special privilege to celebrate our women of the year winners,” Garamendi said. “They are outstanding leaders from diverse backgrounds who have worked hard to improve the lives of the people around them. Every one of these remarkable people has made a real difference.”
