  • Keep yourself and others safe

    During the winter months, the county would like to remind residents the importance of keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice so that they remain pass­able for postal workers, children walking to school and others who need to use them.

My thoughts turned to it as soon as I heard the news from the Eureka, Calif., area, which experienced an offshore earthquake of 6.5 on the Richter scale recently.

  • LA opens district season with big win
