  • Memorial at the Gateway Business Park?

    I saw the groundbreaking ceremony in the Tracy Press this morning (yes…it is Friday as I write this) and wondered if the City could plan a cool memorial (for example, a Quad with flowers and 4 benches (like at Lincoln Park), or whatever fits, but something nice) at the Gateway Business Park.

Awesome movie…5 WaterTowers…. Since I am a spy’s killing and murder fan (see my Book Review Blog) this movie was right up my alley. Lots of action, […]

  • National Teen Driver Safety Week Oct 17 thru 24

    Was watching the news this morning and they interviewed Jesse McCartney (the singer dude..thanks Lori for the spelling of his name and age: 23).  His good friend was killed in a car crash several years ago and now he is a more famous advocate of safe teen driving than I am. No matter what: 1. […]

    I was discussing ForCarol.com at the Tracy Chamber (not very successfully by the way) this morning and Larry Hite mentioned that his company: Tracy Home Inspections donated a bench and plaque in Chris Hoovler’s name. This bench is now located at Chris’s favorite sitting spot at Millennium High School. Thank you Larry! Drive safe!
