As it heads into its fourth Food Day celebration next week, the Community Food Council has issued a challenge: How well can you and your family eat on $5 per person per day? 

Focusing on food insecurity this year, the Community Food Council will host showings of the documentary “A Place at the Table” throughout the county on Friday. There will be food workshops on topics ranging from food budgeting and menu planning to Crock-Pot cooking on Saturday as well as a chance for adults to sample food from local restaurants.

The sound of rain on the roof is rather nice, I think, especially since it’s been quite some time since we heard it last.

I’m sure the trees and other growing things outside appreciate it even more.

Some things seem to manage to thrive despite not having the usual amount of water available.

The Crime Free Multi-Housing Program; the Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT); the K9 Program and the Dogs Detecting Drugs Discreetly Program; and always trying to add additional officers, Debbie the Traffic Decoy Program was established.”
