This corn husk angel hangs among several on my holiday tree. The “Noche de Rábano” or Night of the Radishes is a traditional Oaxaca city tradition. To decorate the tables, indigenous servants of the monks would carve radishes and adorn them with flowers and corn husks.

The Kiwanis' See's Candy Shack was burglarized Wednesday night. The thieves broke into the back of the store and got away with all the stock. The Kiwanis Club of West Sacramento works so hard every year to raise money for their annual Kid's Kamp so we hope they find the culprits and throw them in the tank. Maybe a suitable punishment would be to make them eat all the candy in one sitting!

Thank you Joan Barber for sharing this photo and family memory. "Despite the heavy rain last Friday, Old Sacramento was hopping with holiday festivities. The magnificent Christmas tree in front of The Delta King changes colors. We enjoyed a lovely evening at the Pilot House celebrating our son's birthday. Merry Christmas! Joan Barber"

We got this great photo of Lori Mathis in the "green shirt" after she returned from the 17th Annual Run To Feed the Hungry on Thanksgiving Day. Greenlight Apparel produced the race shirts this year and - although they are not actually green - they are 100% recycled polyester!

We took a walk down Dog Gone Alley in Woodland last week after having lunch in the area. The Woodland City Council renamed the alley in 2005 in the hope the whimsical name would help attract tourists and add to the flavor of the downtown historic district. Below: a controversial mural on the side of the building facing the alley was painted by artist Maceo Montoya.

Tom washed his Raider floor mats to bring his team luck. I've never been a great football fan but since we have been playing in a Fantasy Football League this season it is much more fun to spend our Sunday's in front of the TV!

The firefighters in West Sacramento are great! The James Marshall Preschool recently had a field trip to West Sacramento Fire Station 45 where they had a demonstration of a fireman getting into his gear for a call. The bottom photo shows the new fire pole with a safety gate surround.

WS Natives Mark and Matt Salazar went to Game one of the World Series. Mark got interviewed and used as the model for an editorial cartoon. He said he emphasized “WEST” when telling them where he lived so they would get it right... They did. The quip “Giants in one,” is quintessential Salazar. Thanks Matt H....
