Dick Clark and civil rights; GSA partiers should pay

Short Takes: Dick Clark died on April 18 at the age of 82. Dick Clark and the American Bandstand for 35 years was a part of three generations of Americans who listened, danced, and learned about many types of American music, and Dick Clark was color blind and introduced many black musicians and singers to a large majority of the American people and in so doing gave new meaning to the civil rights movement.

The GSA (General Service Administration) had a really fantastic wingding in Vegas costing the taxpayers almost a million dollars which is a bit weird since that government department is in charge of overseeing if any hanky-panky is going on with the people’s money. Of course, the GSA’s record of stopping billions a year in war profiteering, fraud, and waste is dismal indeed. I really believe everyone who went to this party should be required to pay the taxpayers back.

Cookie sale thanks

The Girl Scout cookie season has come to an end. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the Girl Scouts of of Ramona,  especially the businesses who allowed our girls to sell in front of their stores.  We’d like to thank Kmart, Stater Bros, Albertsons, Daniel’s Market, Ransom Bros., Bank of America, Ramco Gas station, and the Farmers’ Market. Through your generosity, Ramona Girl Scouts sold 55,384 boxes of cookies and raised approximately $33,000 to enrich the lives of our girls here in Ramona, Julian, Warner Springs and Borrego.
