From page A4 | December 29, 2013 |

“He always had a smile on his face, a kind word for everyone and could slap my back harder than anyone I knew.”
— Yolo Superior Court Judge Dave Rosenberg on fellow former City Councilman Jori “Jerry” Kaneko, who died Jan. 18 at age 88

“The results of this would be to kill a generation of scientists. If you don’t get a grant, you can’t do research. If you can’t do research, you can’t get promoted. You can’t make it.”
— Jodi Nunnari, speaking in February about the impact of the federal budget sequester. Nunnari is a UC Davis professor of cellular and molecular biology

“Find a job.”

“Have a baby.”
“I want to publish a research paper.”
“Pet a squirrel.”
“Not cheat in class.”
“I want to show everyone how I dance. “
“I want to democratize the regents.”
“Make my parents and family hella proud of me.”
“I want to get noticed by her.”
— Some of the ways UCD students completed the sentence “Before I graduate …” on a chalkboard set up outside the union by student Henry Lam in April

“It’s a labor of love, just as it has been 98 other times.”
— Paul Cody, staff adviser to the 99th annual Picnic Day board of directors, speaking about the student-run event in April.

“If you want to cut education or if you want to raise interest rates on student loans, you are not reducing the deficit, you are increasing the deficit — because nothing brings more money to the treasury than investing in education.”
— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, speaking at the UCD School of Law graduation ceremony in May

“I can tell you that of the 435 members of Congress, I’ll bet you cannot find more than two that know the details — and I’m not even sure you can find two.”
— Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, responding to media revelations in June about the extent of National Security Agency surveillance

“You might be a little disappointed that she is still not a pretty dog, but she’s a happy dog.”
— Frank Verstraete, chief of dentistry and oral surgery service at the Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, speaking about Kabang, a dog who lost her upper jaw while saving two children in the Philippines from a speeding motorcycle. The street dog received eight months of care at UCD before being cleared to return home in June

“I think when the whole community comes together, it goes into the flavor of the tacos. I call it a blessing.”
— Sylvia Chavez, speaking in August about the more than 40,000 tacos made each year at the Yolo County Fair by Holy Rosary Catholic Church volunteers

“To feed and nourish a healthier world will need the greatest possible range of expertise in one place and across the disciplines. And that one place is UC Davis.”
— Chancellor Linda Katehi, speaking about the campus’ new World Food Center during fall convocation in September.

“What did World War II do for Davis? One, it changed the consciousness of what’s possible and the aspirations of the town’s elites — they began to think big. Two, it invented the University of California. Davis would be nothing without it. And without World War II, UCD would just be a little ag station. The whole concept of giant, technology-inventing institutions is a World War II idea.”
— John Lofland, UCD professor of sociology emeritus and local historian, in a November interview for The Enterprise’s series on Yolo County during the war

“I just want people to say, ‘If she’s not in a corner crying, maybe I don’t have to be.’ “
— Ann Murray Paige, cancer survivor and activist

“We will be happy to start scheduling and performing weddings as soon as we get the high sign. … We’re excited and happy.”
— Yolo County Clerk-Recorder Freddie Oakley after the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling that Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage, was unconstitutional

“I think this shows the community is willing to make the investment to finally have a clean water system and I’m gratified by that.”
— Mayor Joe Krovoza, after Davis voters approved the Woodland-Davis surface water project in March

“It’s not algebra versus geometry anymore, but should we call the hospital on a 5150?”
— Carol Curinga, a longtime Davis school counselor, on how the increasing number of emotionally distressed students has changed the role of school counselors in Davis

“This is like a bucket of cold water. But it’s the reality that we’re faced with.”
— Councilman Brett Lee, after learning in February of the state of the city’s roads and bike paths

“Approving this project will not only provide (many) benefits, but I think it sends a message to the region, because I think it will do nothing less than establish Davis as a leader in smart, innovative, sustainable growth.”
— Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk, after the council approved The Cannery in November

“It’s just a tragedy. There’s nothing more to say.”
— Mary Northup, following the preliminary hearing where 16-year-old Daniel Marsh was ordered to stand trial for her father and stepmother’s murders

“I never thought I’d be that big of a movement. I’m just trying to take it day by day. But I don’t want to be quiet about it. Anyone else that’s gone through something like this, they should be able to speak out about it, and feel OK about speaking out about it.”
— Hate-crime beating victim Lawrence “Mikey” Partida, 32, during an interview at the Sacramento hospital where he was treated for a fractured skull and other injuries stemming from the March 10 assault on I Street. His assailant, Clayton Daniel Garzon, is due to be sentenced on Jan. 15

“When I saw him I started crying. I told my husband, ‘I have to have that dog.’ “
— Lodi resident Stephanie Brown, whose family adopted Doogie, a severely malnourished dog, after seeing him on TV during an appearance with his rescuer, Renee Lancaster of Rotts of Friends
