EZ Rocks Skate for a Cure

The first annual "EZ Rocks Skate for a Cure" will be held on September 21, 2013 at Bellevue Skate Park. This is a competitive skateboarding event established to raise awareness about ALD and raise funds for newborn screening programs for the early detection of rare childhood disease.

The late Ethan Zakes and his family lived in Mill Creek for several years and were active members of the community.

Skateboarding was Ethan's true passion. He would practice every chance he got, watch videos, read magazines and talk for hours with others about skating. Skater clothes and shoes were a staple of his wardrobe that became more eclectic as the years went by.

Forever Home Cat of the Week - Marcus

Marcus trusts and loves people. He loves all the attention he is receiving in his foster home. He is friendly and is happy to be warm and safe. This boy cat of the week loves lots of attention and any lap that is available.

A broken jaw may have saved his life…


Marcus has had a rough life. Evidently left behind when someone moved, he lived at a local business, along with a colony of cats that were fed by the office manager.

When the manager retired, a rescuer took over the colony care and noticed that Marcus’ jaw was injured. He had been hit by a car and was in pain. The rescuer rushed him to the vet where his jaw has been repaired.

While in recovery, the foster realized this cat is not feral or even semi-feral; he is SO happy to be inside.

Left Coast/Right Coast: How we celebrate a life and its passing.

A friend of mine passed away a few days ago. He was not a close personal friend – but someone with whom I had fairly regular dealings. I got to thinking about how we mourn. We all mourn in our own private ways.

A friend of mine passed away a few days ago. He was not a close personal friend – but someone with whom I had fairly regular dealings. It does not matter, he went at a too young age.

I got to thinking about how we mourn. We all mourn in our own private ways. Some of us can’t face this prospect (which faces us all) and don’t deal with it directly. Others jump in with both feet – offering help/support to friends and family. I like to think about two of my favorite writers/comedians, who have each produced what I consider an important work on this subject.
