Zoning is the Issue in Redding, CA B&B Case. - 03/26/11 07:07 PM
Earlier today I had the opportunity to hear the argument on whether or not a Bed and Breakfast should be allowed in a very nice residential area of Redding. The applicant, which happens to be a family that is associated with a local church that has an extensive national and international following, wants to make their home available to folks that come to the church for various seminars and meetings. The issue is not really the church, but what will happen to the general neighborhood if the B&B is allowed....so it is becoming a city zoning issue, and my guess is (0 comments)
Mike Ferrier's Lessons for Life - 03/26/11 06:15 PM
Mike Ferrier is a good friend of mine, and weekly he sends me "Lessons for Life"...this is his latest one, as he returned from a conference in Southern California... I don't have a big appetite for it, but there are times in life where you have to "eat crow". For you younger people that means having to admit you were wrong and taking an action to apologize or rectify the situation. Winston Churchill once said, "Eating words has never given me indigestion." He also said, "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last." When you (0 comments)
Lou Tice and the Pacific Institute - 03/26/11 06:03 PM
Lou Tice and the Pacific Institute. Posted on March 26, 2011 by Ron Largent Some years ago I became involved with the Pacific Institute, owned and led by Lou Tice. Ever since then I have subscribed to his weekly motivational articles, and the following is one I got yesterday. It really applies to our work in the non-profit field, as it does to business in general. Please read on: What are you afraid of? It doesn’t matter whether it’s speaking in public or snakes, if you really want to conquer it, you can. Let’s talk for a few moments about fear. (0 comments)
Anderson Cottonwood Christian Assistance and the United Way - 03/18/11 08:26 PM
Victoria…in our office, on her weekly visits to our agencies, makes the following report on her visit to this very well functioning agency in Anderson, CA: Over the past three years, ACCA has seen a very dramatic increase in the number of local families in our area needing emergency food assistance. Since 2004, the number served has gone up by over 100%. As a result, ACCA is straining with all of its resources to meet the needs of hungry families in our area. http://www.andcotca.us/ I had the privilege of spending the day at this amazing agency today, to say the least.

Plumas Rural Services and the United Way of Northern California - 03/17/11 11:52 PM
Yesterday I had the opportunity to travel to Plumas County in Northern California and had a chance to visit the Plumas Rural Services, our United Way of Northern California in Quincy, CA. This is a phenomenal agency doing some wonderful work in the rural mountain areas of north eastern California. They have a full menu of programs, and to see them in action on the web, please take a look at them at http://plumasruralservices.org/ This is a great program…another example of how the United Way of Northern California is working where it matters. email@example.com www.norcalunitedway.org (0 comments)
Lou Tice and the Pacific Institute - 03/17/11 11:29 PM
Over the years, I have enjoyed reading Lou Tice encouragements…this is a good one, and appropriate for today… What would it take to make you happy? Now, I know some of you think that if you only had this or that particular thing or a certain amount of money, you’d be happy. Others believe that if you were only in love with someone wonderful who loved you back, then you would be happy. And there are still others who believe that if a miracle would occur and cure you or someone you love of an illness, that would make you happy. (0 comments)
