They also need wet cat food (unexpired, please). When you go shopping, pick up a few extra toRead More donate.

Good news. Glad to hear St Paul's is trying to keep this service available.

I'd like to volunteer to help Trinity Center, especially since the WC BART Transit Village projectRead More has fallen through..

Well apparently I've been banned as trouble maker - they didn't care for my videos about homelessRead More people being killed in Walnut Creek. The facts there are many that have been hit but lets not stop in Walnut Creek, please add Concord, Antioch, Pittsburg, Martinez and even one last night in Berkeley - drive by shooting of a woman riding a bicycle. We'll learn soon . Well at least the Walnut Creek Police are not riding the homeless endlessly.

Where were the WCPD motorcycle cops? They always lead off the parade and my kids love em. BudgetRead More cuts?

@JB I talked to a member of the WCPD and he told me that this year is the first without theRead More motorcycle cops in the parade due to budget cuts. Sad to report indeed.

WTF? You guys stink. So I'm supposed to buy used junk from a store which survives on my TAXES? SoRead More I'm not saving a damn thing. Damn Liberals.

Those are old photos. I took a cruise to Richmond last Sunday after it was announced that the IowaRead More would not be getting under tow as scheduled. The ship's entire hull, superstructure, and guns have all been chipped, scraped, primed, and painted in a fresh coat of navship haze grey. I understand they spent $2 Million on the repairs and paint. There are still a lot of us that appreciate the history of these dreadnaughts and the valor of its sailors. I'm glad that she being saved. I plan on visiting it in LA next year.

No, we're saying that we have done surveys with professional outside consultants and are actuallyRead More recreating native habitat to help support native species like California red-legged frogs and Alameda Whipsnakes.

Paula: Pretty sure it's not a webcam. I got a look last summer. I have confidence in Brian beingRead More the quietest, most respectful naturalist possible. Keep in mind that these ducks are putting up with a fair amount of noise all the time in that location -- kids walking home from Las Lomas, cars going by on South Main, cars going by on the freeway. Maybe Brian wants to weigh in with a comment here. -- Lance Howland, editor, Walnut Creek Patch
Paula Miller April 12, 2012 at 04:41 pm
Thanks Lance, but I really wasn't too worried about Brian being too intrusive and the webcamRead More reference was in jest. I, for one, really appreciate Brian's efforts when it comes to the nurturing of the Wood Ducks and also for his education of all of your readers. I am still curious as to how tolerant the mama duck is of humans and would like to know more about them. Creatures such as the Wood Ducks who manage to survive living in a suburban area are just another reason that we are so fortunate to live in Walnut Creek!
Lance Howland April 12, 2012 at 05:59 pm
Shoot, Paula, I need to lighten up. It's a universal reaction, I realized, because when we wereRead More small, impressionable people and found an egg or a baby away from the nest, our mothers earnestly explained to us that we didn't want to get our human smell on the egg or baby because the mother might then be repelled. -- LDH, editor, Walnut Creek Patch

This is practically my backyard. I'll grab my telephoto lens tomorrow to check up on the littleRead More quackers in the creek.
