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!!!

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!

Thank you to all the great support that Union City gave us yesterday. From 11am until 3pm, hundredsRead More of cars driving past Mexico Lindo honked and waved at us.
