Perhaps We Are Just a Bit Spoiled
THE ROUTE WE TRAVEL - While it may be true that our present energy problem is proving Ulcerating to some motorists, it perhaps would be wise to re-examine some of the routes we had to travel to get where we are today.
Steamboat travel, hunting bit of 1858 life
In October 1858, a stage coach upset at Suscol left Mrs. Robert Sterling of Napa with a broken arm. Later that month, a small sum of money was found on the road between Yountville and Napa by a M. Dean of Suisun Valley [...]
History Overlooked Some Vacaville Names
BITS OF NEWS ABOUT PEOPLE IN OUR PAST - Quite often the unpublished quirks or idiosyncrasies of individuals in our past have escaped historians or news writers. It should be interesting to go back, pick out some of these people, and relate a few squibs which made these people a bit unique to their neighbors and friends.

Uhl, extensive rancher and Vacaville councilman and mayor who wrote this bit of wisdom, and although written nearly 20 years ago, his thoughts could well fit into today's atmosphere.
School Problems Are Nothing New
THE NEVER ENDING SCHOOLS PROBLEMS The increasing costs of education, plus divergent opinions on curriculums, are a constant sore spot not only in Vacaville but throughout the United States.
Cheap Money Can Cure Most of Our Problems
IT'S ONLY MONEY - Many times I have had the desire to be knowledgeable enough to understand our present economic problems. The more I read, the more confused I become. I am beginning to have my doubts about the wisdom of some key economists. We must accept the fact that we have strayed into a position of being credit card "junkies," and there's not a pill available in any drug store which will cure this illness.
