Bowling for Scouts

The American Legion raised $2,000. to support our local scout troops and at the championship tournament, the local VFW – another Veterans group, donated another $1,000.

The three weekends of bowling were held after the Scout troop leaders provided me with the kids’ wish list. Thanks to other generous businesses like Big…

Roamin Angels Sign

It was a sunny afternoon many years ago, I was cruising over to my friend Lanny Netz’s house. I decided to  get off  Hwy. 49 at McKnight Way to pick up a 6-pack. As I slowed down, I took the time to look at the ‘Welcome to Grass Valley Memorial’ sign and  the local service clubs displayed  there. The  Odd Fellows,  Kiwanis, two or three Rotary Clubs and a few others. When I got to Lanny’s we got into a discussion about the sign and the organizations displayed. They were…

A Trip Back into Automotive History

A while back my wife, Peggy, and I were passing through Detroit.  Along with visiting the Motown Studio complex we decided to take in the Piquette Avenue Ford plant.  This is one of the most significant automotive heritage sites in the world as this is where Henry Ford designed the Model T. The building was constructed in 1905.  It was the Ford Motor Company’s first purpose built factory.  The Ford Models C, F, K, N, R, S and the Model T were all assembled here.  The Model T was introduced…

Kinda Like Old Times

Those of you attending our Roamin Angel’s yearly meeting in February heard me talk about efforts to help jump start the Grass Valley Downtown show. Hopefully we’ll stop adding COVID in these conversations as a variable, but in this case it was still in the mix.  The staffing and management of the GVDA changed, the Mill Street refurbish schedule was still in the air, the State & County rules remained variables.   COVID  v.s. Cars! The good news is it’s all coming together. The reason ? ……Us. We had the…
