Zonta tribute dinner taps Harte

One of our favorite folks in the SCV, Duane Harte has been named the 2008 Zonta Club of SCV Tribute honoree.

I'm sure the evening's tributes will feature Harte's 23 years of service with the U.S. Naval Reserve, from which he retired as a senior chief petty officer in 1990, and his love of Harley Davidson motorcycles.

County’s green building rules will benefit us

As a lifelong outdoor lover, as well as a person who works in the environmental compliance arena, I've watched "Being Green" go through cycles of popularity. Sometimes caring for the planet is all the rage, and a few years later it's an afterthought.

Everyone wants our babies

Gary Horton: Oh, the places our tax money goes

Dr. Seuss is among the most beloved in the pantheon of American writers. Ostensibly written for children, most of his stories also carry deeply meaningful lessons for those adults reading along with their kids.
