Thanks for supporting artists

The 28 Davis Art Studio Tour artists would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s tour. We are thankful to The Artery for making the tour possible by hosting our preview show and pre-tour reception. We also very much appreciate the generous support of our sponsors, J. Cunningham, the Davis Arts Center, the […]

Friendship Day thanks

We, the Friendship Day facilitators from Davis High School, would like to thank all Lamppost Pizza, Noah’s Bagels, Nugget Markets, the Davis Food Co-op and Rite-Aid for helping us with their amazing donations throughout the year. We wouldn’t be able to have successful Friendship Days without their constant support. We really appreciate all that these businesses do […]

Thanks for helping Yolo kids

We want to end child abuse and neglect in Yolo County. During April, many of you helped and we thank you. Thanks to everyone who bought tickets to the Children’s Alliance and Child Abuse Prevention Council’s fundraising events during April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month and especially our sponsors, who gave such generous support to the […]

A great day of service

On Saturday, April 26, the city of Davis and several community groups organized a Davis Community Day of Service. This event was planned with the goal of uniting residents and engaging in service to the community. We asked for volunteers and received 200-plus! They worked on projects at Barovetto, Playfields and West Manor parks; CHOC […]

Help light up the world

On the very rare evenings when the electricity fails in Davis, people rush around lighting candles or turning on flashlights. It can be fun, especially for children. It’s different and exciting — unless it lasts too long. For the 1.6 billion people in the world who live off the electrical grid, it is anything but […]

A fun time was had by all

The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge sponsored the third annual Breakfast with the Bunny, and a very successful event it was! More than 150 children and their parents, grandparents or guardians attended, and I heard only favorable comments about the event and about the Davis Odd Fellows. The attendees enjoyed a continental breakfast, followed by a short walk […]

Passover Seder supported

On behalf of Congregation Bet Haverim, I would like to thank Whole Foods for its generous donations. Last year we revived our Community Potluck Seder, and Whole Foods provided us with grape juice, matza and macaroons for the 100 guests who attended. This year, they supported us again as we welcomed 115 guests from our […]

Dig it! The secrets of soil

By Karen Ross A walk through any of California’s 700 certified farmers markets is all it takes to make the point: This state’s farms are something special. Our farmers are innovators —as creative as they are productive, to the tune of $42.6 billion worth of agricultural produce and commodities a year. But they have a lot of […]

We debate what’s important in Davis’ history

* Editor’s note: Marion is taking the week off. This column first ran in 2007. When people labeled O.J. Simpson’s trial “the trial of the century,” I groaned. What about the Scopes trial, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, or Brown vs. the Board of Education? I may not study history, but I do know that you […]

Less doesn‘t have to mean ‘none’

Dear Annie: My husband and I are both in our 60s and have had a mutually loving and enjoyable sex life. We were intimate once or twice a week. Until now. ”Bill” recently was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and we have elected to do nothing aggressive. The doctor suggested “dutiful watching.” Bill has some erectile […]

Heed importance of agriculture

Sen. Dianne Feinstein does not deserve being blasted by members of the state Legislature nor being characterized as being “owned” by “big ag” to destroy the delta in the political cartoon in The Enterprise. She took a gutsy and justified step in pushing back against the over-reaching demands and onerous regulations driven by the environmental groups […]

Support for U.S.-U.N. relations

A new poll released recently by the Better World Campaign has found that even during this polarizing political time, there is one issue that most voters agree on: The United States cannot solve the world’s problems alone. Eighty-six percent of American voters agree that it is important for the United States to maintain an active role […]

Train instead of water?

Drought. Israel knows a thing or two about it, and that nation has been building desalination plants. And California? No, California plans to build a bullet train that few people will ride and, for the time being, costs $68 billion for a few miles. But water experts will proclaim that providing desalinated water is too expensive. […]
