Beachgoers: Be courteous and use lotion, not spray, sunscreen

Summer is in full swing at the beach, and once again the spray on sunscreen is, too. Please, people: The spray you think is going on your body is going onto and into everyone around you … into our mouths, eyes and noses. Please use lotions instead. That’s the only way that you’ll be sure it’s really getting onto you and not the rest of us. Thank you.

Bicyclist thanks Good Samaritans who helped him after a crash

I’m an avid bicyclist who rides many miles on the roads of SLO County. Recently I fell hard on Price Canyon. I was rolling about 18 mph when I hit a softball-sized rock that brought me down. Within 30 seconds, at least six good Samaritans assembled to render first aid, calling 911, calling my wife, picking up the bike and taking it to my home in A.G., and remaining until I was transported to A.G. hospital in an ambulance.
