Bob Dunning: Fa-la-la for a great cause

SINGING FOR STEAC … the whole town — kids included — is invited to belt out some holiday tunes for a great cause at the third annual Sing for STEAC at the Nugget/CVS plaza on East Covell Boulevard at 4:30 p.m. Sunday … no need to sign up ahead of time or attend any rehearsals or wear special clothing … just show up Sunday accompanied by your vocal cords and help raise money for a STEAC family in particular need this December …

Every penny raised will go directly to this designated family … while the majority of the money is donated by those passing by, carolers are also encouraged to bring a donation if they wish … last year a tidy sum was raised for another STEAC family and a good time was had by all despite a torrential rainstorm throughout the concert … (there will be no rain on Sunday) …

Despite the fact most tunes will be those we’ve all known since childhood, song books will be provided … if you are vocally challenged, humming is both welcome and encouraged…

SPEAKING OF CHRISTMAS TIME … I refuse to be drawn into the raging national debate over whether Santa Claus is “white” … I do know for a fact, however, that the Easter Bunny is white because I’ve seen him many times at our city’s very own Breakfast with the Bunny as well as merrily marching in our “Spring Parade” … the race and gender of the elusive Tooth Fairy, however, remain a complete mystery …

CHRISTMAS WISH … here’s hoping UC Davis concludes its national search by hiring Matt Carmichael as chief of police … he’s earned the title in the last year and a half by diligently putting Humpty Dumpty back together again …

EASTSIDE FOLLIES … absolutely loved that recent letter to the editor where a “Brian” wrote “Having recently moved from West Davis to East Davis, we have discovered that a better class of thieves exists on the west side than on the east side.” … is anyone surprised? …

SKIP TO MY LOO … glad the City Council came to its historical senses and decided to find a way to save the old and awful Central Park bathrooms … I really would have hated to chain myself to one of the urinals to prevent the wrecking ball from doing its dirty work …

FOOTBALL COACH WANTED … further evidence that big-time college football is out of control is the fact Mack Brown was dumped after 16 seasons at Texas after compiling a 158-47 record, including one national championship, two BCS championship game appearances, 14 bowl games and finishing 10 times in the nation’s top 15 … the Longhorn football program also netted $79 million last year, so it wasn’t about money … no, it was about the fact Texas was just 8-4 this season and lost to Baylor … at UC Davis, meanwhile, the new coach went 5-7 in his first year and Aggie alums are dancing in the street … refreshing …
