Sunshine Report:

Fred Levin had a brief hospital visit last week as an abundance of caution.  Fortunately, the doctors could find nothing wrong.


Patty Kolin had the right ticket but pulled the wrong marble.

Joke of the Week:

Sorry, but I needed to vent!

I experienced the WORST customer service earlier today at a shop in town. I don’t want to mention the name of the shop because I’m not sure how I’m going to proceed.

On Friday I bought something from this shop. I paid cash for it. I took it home and found out it didn’t work. So today, less than 48 hours later I took it back to the shop and asked if I could get a refund. The girl in the shop told me “NO” even though I still had the receipt. I asked if I could get a replacement instead then. Again, this person told me “NO.”

I asked to talk to a manager now as I’m really not happy and I explained that I had bought the item, had got it home and it didn’t work. The manager just smiled and told me to my face that I was “OUT OF LUCK.” ???

No refund. No FREE replacement.  GRRRR!

I’ll tell you what… I am NEVER buying another Lottery Ticket from there again!!


Giro Bello yard signs are here.  Pick some up and put them in your yard and favorite intersections.  We now have sponsorship commitments of $12,800

Ted Wilmsen is still collecting extra dictionaries.  You can also buy one for $10.00

Mary Graves says the Science Fair is coming up in Rohnert Park.  They need adult volunteers.  See her if you can help.

Today’s program was “Trivia.”

President Cathy was ruthless! Questions ranged from questions taken from Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, answers taken from last week’s questions & answers, and some from Jeopardy. Those 5th grade questions were pretty tough too. We had 5 tables playing and each table was out after 3 wrong answers. Table 2 won $110.00.  Table 5 won $65.00 and table 6 won $37.00.
