Let’s not lose another good DHS coach

Should Davis High let go of yet another one of its coaches?

Dunning: College rivalry games mean a fun Thanksgiving weekend

This week’s picks are as follows: CAL over BYU … the Golden Bears pick up the bowl-eligible win they so desperately need after last week’s disappointing effort against Stanford.

Planting love at new home

Nancy and Paul Jacobs, who recently bought my home on A Street, generously allowed me to remove four treasured rose bushes from my former garden. Don Shor at Redwood Barn Nursery kindly offered to keep the roses for me until the bed at my new home is ready for planting. Thank you, Nancy, Paul and […]

“Sell, sell, sell!” a friend of mine, who is an investment adviser, told me over the phone last Friday, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 closed at all-time highs. “I don’t know exactly when we are going to have a crash, Rich, but the market is seriously overvalued,” he said. “It’s […]
