Garamendi’s honoring of area women a great thing

Three of our neighbors from Glenn County were of the 38 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.”

Not paying attention on the roadways, especially for motorcycles

We don’t want to jump the gun on this tragedy, but we feel the preliminary information from the California Highway Patrol about today’s front page crash illustrates just how careful motorists need to be in watching out for motorcylists.

Especially this time of year, when it’s getting dark much earlier.
