Vacaville's Three Worst Times of Turmoil
DAYS OF TURMOIL AND HEARTBREAK _ Perhaps never in the history of Vacaville have there been three controversial problems which affected the lives of the people, as were those which occurred in 1932, 1957 and 1942.
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.
Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun - People County
AND AWAY WE GROW- Years ago, in fact in 1910, when Vacaville residents traveled to San Francisco using old Highway 40, they needed to be alert in passing through Fairfield else they would have missed the few buildings there marking that hamlet. The population of Fairfield in 1910 was 834, and although Vacaville at that time was no booming metropolis, it claimed a population of 1177. Many Vacaville resident, seeking merchandise and services in those days gone by, would travel to nearby Suisun, which had more to offer than did Vacaville or Fairfield. But, look what's happened since those days.
The History of '77, and the Potential for '78

The Vacaville Cousins Who Gave Their Lives
PERHAPS YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW - Writing about past wars, and especially those bits of news which saddened many Vacaville families, is not what any writer would choose to elaborate on. But from time to time such informative information may be beneficial to residents here today.
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.
Time Has Erased a Beautiful Vacaville Scene
WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO MY TOWN? - People who have resided here 50 years or more (there are only a few remaining), can look back and make a comparison of Vacaville "back when" and Vacaville today.
Thank You, Jimmy, for Our 'Flushing' Funds
UNCLE HAS A PROBLEM - Uncle Sam, faced with inflationary problems, seems to have been backed into a rather controversial corner. While everyone is screaming about government spending, the race goes on throughout the country for state and federal handouts.
Main Street Keeps Rolling Along
MAIN STREET - AN ORIGINAL NAME - The task of designating street names at times may be an arduous chore, but when Main Street received that title about 125 years ago there was no problem. It was the only business thoroughfare in Vacaville and it was the main one.
Never-Ending Problems - Sewage and Trash
THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL - A friend of mine asked me one day if there were any problems in compiling this article, once each week, year-in, year-out for more than 30 years. My immediate reply was: "Oh, there's always something to write about." Well, this is one week when I will scrape the bottom of the barrel for a subject. Let's talk about our environmental problems of Yesteryear.
