The plant sales at the Ruth Bancroft Garden are personal highlights for me. I go every spring and fall, and I always walk about with interesting plants as well as lots of new photos.

Here’s my recap of the 2014 fall sale, held last Saturday.

After the somewhat chaotic

Netarts River

Another version of the liquid gold photo from our fall hike along Netarts River last week.  I felt like there was more green than yellow in the trees, so the reflection color was really surprising to me. I compared these images to some from a phot...

Analysis: Most Unaware of the Innovation Park Issue

Oct 13, 2014

On Thursday, we will have an Innovation Park Discussion forum at DMG Mori at 6:30. In planning the event, putting it out at DMG seemed like an intriguing idea. First, it showcases economic development. But second, it puts us fairly close to the location of one of the parks – Mace Ranch Innovation Center....

In 2011, Maurice Caldwell came to speak at the Vanguard’s first Dinner and Awards Ceremony, he had just been released from prison after nearly 20 years for a crime he did not convict.

Commentary: No Means No Apparently No Longer Enough

Oct 13, 2014

When I was a college student now more than 20 years ago, sexual assault awareness was in its infancy. When we pictured the act of rape, we thought of the stranger jumping out of the ally to attack the unsuspecting woman. But sexual assault is often committed by an acquaintance. In 1994, a bipartisan...

Tom Adams on Race and Climate Issues

Oct 12, 2014

When the Davis City Council voted 3-1-1 back in late August to send the MRAP back, they put in language to bring the issue back after sixty days. The Davis Police Department following the raid on Royal Oak a few weeks ago put on a full court press arguing that the city’s police force...

Vanguard Analysis: The Race for Third for School Board?

A few weeks ago, we handicapped the school board race and argued that Madhavi Sunder and Barbara Archer were the prohibitive front runners. We don’t have available polling data so we make use of a bunch of inferences based on endorsements, money, campaign activities and a lot of gut feelings. We do not see...

Netarts Bay

Back to the foggy coast for today's photo...salmon fishing in Netarts Bay. When I was hiking along Netarts River I ran into a fisherman catching trout. I should have asked him about the salmon. At some point soon they should enter the river. I imagine ...

My View: Changing of the Guard

One might be tempted to believe that there was not going to be much difference between the last council and the current council. After all, the only change in make up was exit of Joe Krovoza and the arrival of Robb Davis, as Mayor Pro Tem. One would figure that Joe Krovoza and Robb...
