Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall One Sunday afternoon about six years ago, Dr. Alan and Lindsay Epstein noticed an open house sign a few blocks down from their home on Hillard Avenue. They went to take a look. As they toured the two-acre grounds surrounding the New England-style, clapboard-clad, two-story house, Dr. Epstein leaned against a rickety bridge railing. He tumbled into the ravine below. Unhurt, he scrambled up to wife and declared, "Let's buy this house." Today, the bridge and railing have been replcaed.

Shirley's Sunshine by Shirley DeGrey For sure, it's spring again! There's no doubt about it. The planets and stars are brighter here and the night sky is a great show off of light. Days are also terrific. When you are out of doors, breathe as much of the beautiful and wonderfully clear air that you can. Dick [DeGrey] agrees. After our visit last week from the baby ducks and their mom on Chula Senda Lane, the ducks seem to be much more relaxed and truly adorable. But we are watching over them as they go along in the sunshine.
