My wife and I just returned from a long weekend in Yosemite National Park -- a delightful experience. Imagine our surprise when we were able to buy gas for our car at $2.49 a gallon anywhere from Selma on the south of Fresno to Oakhurst some 50 miles into the mountains. Imagine our dismay to find local prices at the same stations, Chevron and Arco, this a.m. at $2.73 to $2.63 -- 15 to 25 cents higher. Are we being ripped off or what? Perhaps we should all consciously seek out the lowest cost gas. Maybe the companies with the 9 billion quarterly profits will notice the loss.

Hi, I’m out and about and writing you from the great Northwest. I’m visiting friends in Seattle where I lived for more than three years in the wild ’60s. Things have changed a lot since those days — the city is certainly busier and the traffic jams on the freeways are rivaling L.A. standards. As I landed at SeaTac airport, “The Mountain” (Mt. Rainier) was in glorious view. It was quite spectacular, as it always is when it emerges from its usual curtain of haze and/or clouds.

Members of the Montrose Search and Rescue Team and Crescenta Valley Sheriff?s Station spent last week climbing a frozen waterfall. ?Yes, a frozen waterfall,? said rescue team member Mike Leum. The exercise was a continuation in the team?s ice rescue training. According to Leum, seven members of the team and station traveled on March 26-27 to Lee Vining Canyon, near Tioga Pass and Yosemite National Park. For two days they trained in vertical ice response. They were outfitted in boots with ice clamps, extreme weather clothing and all the equipment needed for the climb.

William S. Kile, born July 4, 1922, died Nov. 8, 2005. Bill always said "Everybody celebrates my birthday with me!" He was the youngest of three brothers and two sisters and was raised in Oklahoma City, Okla. He often talked of his boyhood in the rural part of Oklahoma City. There were many wide-open spaces and he and his dad used to go hunting and fishing often. They were fortunate in that his mother was good at cooking wild quail, rabbits and fish. As a teenager, Bill spent his time playing baseball, football and was on the swim team in high school.

Discussion on the matter arose during a first reading item of the details of next year's trip, planned for February 2015, during which 46 students will explore parts of the park through the science education program Nature Bridge.

I've kept journals since the eighth grade, recording memories that became treasures in the heart to pull out on the tough days of adulthood. I wrote my thoughts sparingly and only chose those aspects of life that were most impactful. I took my journals to Vietnam, hoping to write a story of my evolution into the heart of darkness. Both dreams were destroyed in an 82mm mortar attack. Only one journal survived. It was hard to begin again, but I did. Everybody needs their memories. They keep the wolf of insignificance from knocking at your door.

Just when California river outfitters were anticipating a normal rafting season in 2006, along came Mother Nature to dump copious amounts of snow in March and April. The net result — This year's rafting season is going to be longer and wetter than ever. The 2005 season was unusually long because of the large amount of snowmelt that dramatically increased the flow in many of California's rivers. Now, judging from recent measurements that show nearly twice as much snowmelt as usual, this coming season is expected to be even better.

Strength, courage, facing adversities and finding the power from within to continue — these are just a few of the qualities that women fighting breast cancer call upon daily. To honor those attributes and to raise awareness of the research that has been done and still needs to be done in the area of breast cancer, a group of local mountaineers joined others to climb Oregon’s Mt. Hood last weekend. “It was quite an adventure,” said Mike Leum. The climb was part of a fundraiser for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
