Happy Easter Where in Walnut Creek?

That's an ivy bunny. That's an Easter bunny.

Have you been by this ivy bunny with the sunflower eyes. Tell us where it is.

Took my class on a field trip to Walnut Creek Friday on a scavenger hunt and the kids found this adorable topiary at the Broadway Plaza water fountain....even took a picture, it was so stinking cute! kw

"Journalist"... I'd be wary of using that word. In my opinion, there are very few true journalists. Most reporters and news anchors (reporters turned teleprompt readers) appear to have little critical thinking skills. Printed news is nearly dead and they are clawing for every subscriber.

Kathy: We must award you as the winner of Where in Walnut Creek this week! Also an award for enlarging many vocabularies, including mine, with "topiary." That's what that is. What school are you at and what grade? -- Lance Howland, editor, Walnut Creek Patch

SR My reaction is sadness. It's a pretty big sin. It's a short cut that has become easier to do with the cut-and-paste ease of better computer software. It's sad because plagiarism is such a waste. Nobody would have batted an eyelash if the Times had written an editorial correctly citing the LA Times and quoting a sentence or two from their editorial. Disclosure compels me to point out that many years ago I was an editor for a corporate predecessor of the Bay Area News Group, which operates the Contra Costa Times. - Lance Howland, editor, Walnut Creek Patch

I work at El Dorado Middle School in Concord in a Special Day Class with Deaf and Hard of Hearing students. Must say, I do enjoy the photos. People miss so much that is right in front of them.
