This evening at 6:30 p.m. there will be a meeting at the Community Services District office at the Fire Department to discuss rezoning proposed by the County for some San Miguel neighborhoods. Specifically, they want to change single family zoning in some neighborhoods to multiple family in order to increase density so that homes may be built closer together on smaller lots allowing for more apartments. For information, call Laverne Buckman at 467-3467.
Local priest publishes poetry book
Well-known Franciscan friar, Father Larry Gosselin OFM, who recently served at Old Mission San Miguel as guardian (overseer), has published a book of his poetry entitled “Hidden Sweetness” through Tau Publishing. Illustrations and fine art in the book are the work of San Miguel artist Steve Kalar. Miki Landseadel, teacher and owner of the San Miguel Mercantile, is the editor. In San Miguel, the books will be featured in her downtown shop in both paperback and hardback. They will also be available in the Old Mission gift shop.
Winners from Sagebrush Days
Sagebrush Days was a lot of fun for all! The parade — which goes both ways so you can see both sides of the horses — was colorful and enthusiastic. First place winners in the parade were Lillian Larsen School Healthy Hornets and AVID students. Almond Acres Academy was awarded second place. Third place went to Jim Stainbrook in his 1932 Roadster. He was accompanied by former Lillian Larsen teacher George Bentley. About a dozen delicious apple pies were sampled and contest winners were Brinda Brown, Laverne Buckman, Linda Vickers and Maggie Lee. Many thanks to all who participated.
