Boy, there is almost a law about everything these days

Today’s front page includes a run-down of some of the most applicable laws to daily life.

Some seem like a good idea, while others ... well, there’s not much to say about them.

We understand the need to legislate some things, but as some point there isn’t a need to protect us from ourselves.

Particularly in California, it seems, we can be overwhelmed with all of the legislation. 

Add on the top of that all of the voter and ballot initiatives, and we end up with quite a few laws coming and going.

All fall athletes deserve kudos, not just all-league ones

We’ve been running a bit behind on this, but on next week’s sports page you’ll find listings of all-area honorees from throughout Tehama County.

And while these student-athletes are the ones who may have earned more recognition for their performances, we also find it important to give a sort of broad shout-out to all who participated in sports this fall.

It takes something to try out, practice and perform at the high school level, and we commend all of those who did so.

Now, we’ll see how far our area teams can go as the winter season progresses.
