About this blog: I am a native of Alameda County, grew up in Pleasanton and currently live in the house I grew up in that is more than 100 years old. I spent 39 years in the daily newspaper business and wrote a column for more than 25 years in addition to writing editorials for more than 15 years. I have served as a director of many non-profits in the Valley and the broader Bay Area and currently serve as chair of Teen Esteem and on the advisory board of Shepherd?s Gate. I also served as founding chair of Heart for Africa and have travelled to Africa seven times to serve on mission trips. My wife, Betty Gail, has taught at Amador Valley High (from where we both graduated) since 1981. She and I both graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, as did both of my parents and my three siblings. Given that Cal tradition, our daughter went south to the University of Southern California and graduated with a degree in international relations. Since graduation, she has taken three mission trips and will be serving in the Philippines for nine months starting in September. (Hide)

Merry Christmas. This is a great time of year and I hope for all of our readers that you enjoy this time. It’s the season to gather with family and friends and celebrate. As we all do that, I hope all of us will harken back to Thanksgiving last month and remember just how blessed we are to live in this country and enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that America offers. It’s been my pleasure and privilege to offer my thoughts on events and people in Pleasanton, the Tri-Valley and beyond for all of my adult life (more than 50 years). I am grateful for many long-time readers and for those of you who are newer. Thank you. My wish for all is for a blessed and peaceful holiday season. For my family, we will celebrate the birth of the Christ child, God with us, as the centerpiece of our time together.
What is it worth to you?
