My Daughter -Thea Lemaster is one of the youngest participants in the relay. She's participatingRead More with friends from James Logan H.S. and I am so proud of all of them. If anybody wants to support them please go to the Relay For Life website and make a donation to their team , or to her. It's commendable to see high school students committing to such a worthwhile cause. Since cancer has personally impacted our family a number of times , this cause is a little to close to home. Thanks everybody, good luck! Way to go Thea, I'm proud of you!!!

I am proud to report that Union City's 2012 Relay For Life (our 7th annual) raised $94,123.03 thisRead More weekend. It was a spectacular event. I encourage all Patch members to leave a comment sharing their favorite part of the relay. And if anyone has a video of the Frozen T-shirt contest, can they please post it? Thanks, Jen Dudley, Accounting Chair RELAY FOR LIFE Union City

Thank you, Rhiannon. That information conflicts with what is listed on this web page.Read More http://www.haywardanimals.org/volunteers.html I will call the shelter tomorrow and find out which is correct and report back in the comments section.

Maybe rather than just copy random things from websites, Patch writers should do some fact-checkingRead More /before/ posting a story.

Rhiannon - The shelter is still accepting volunteers, however, the next training and orientationRead More session will not be held for another month or so. Rather than accepting individual applications one by one, the shelter has just started requesting people sign up for the orientation class and submit their application at the time of the orientation. I have updated the story and suggest you call in September for the next orientation date.

With all the interest in this vampire stuff the REd Cross should have a "Twilight" Drive.Read More Shirtless hunky male vamps for female donors, toothy vampirellas for the guys.

I would LOVE to donate - used to 4x a year until I lived in Europe for a while. Now the Red CrossRead More doesn't want my blood because they think I might have mad cow disease. It's a shame too - I've got the good old, common stuff that they always run low on. When is the Red Cross going to change their rules requiring people living outside the country for a while?

I wouldn't expect that to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.

There is something to be said for quiet donations. Having given a similar donation to a charity ofRead More my choice, I did not seen any publicity. On the other hand, all charities like to get their name in the public eye. Having been on the board of 4 non-profits, I know how important it is to get some publicity, esp. when a lot of locals don't know that your non-profit exists. So, both sides have their points, and it's up to each person donating and to each charity how they want to handle it.

Great timing for this scholarship in memory of Grandma Luz as today, June 29, is the 2 yearRead More anniversary of her death. She would be very proud of her grandson's contribution no matter what the amount would be. It's a shame actions like these are getting any kind of negative feedback. Good Bless you Rod, and all the staff and supporters of OLR school!

Congratulations to Jeazelle's parents for raising a such a caring young lady. They must certainlyRead More be very proud of her accomplishments. We will be reading about Jeazelle in years to come.

As I recall, it was the strong liberal/anti-war movement's self-centered mentality in San FranciscoRead More that allowed this fine example of US seapower in WWII to be taken from our hands and delivered to San Pedro! That was a major mistake and our Bay Area will suffer from this great battleship not being here for us and millions of tourists to enjoy. For all the influence and participation San Francisco as a seaport has had in the development of America's seapower over the years, it seems a real shame not to have at least one example of these great battleships be a star attraction at this seaport. Thanks to many forward thinking volunteers at all leverls, we have the USS Hornet aircraft carrier tied up at Alameda. The USS Hornet is a state and national landmark! If you want to see a piece of US history from WWII to space travel, stop on by and visit this veteran today. On Monday, 28 May, there will be a Memorial Day program starting at 1 p.m. And be sure to take the family, it will be worth your time!
