Community reaches out to Mouse

Scooters Pals would like to thank those who answered the plea to help by contributing to our “Frankies (medical) Fund” for surgery on a shelter dog we had rescued.

Mouse, a 10-year-old Chihuahua, had been in a valley shelter for three months with a broken jaw, along with his buddy, Cookie, after their owner died. He was in terrible pain, malnourished, and his hair was falling out. Scooters rescued both dogs and got Mouse the surgery to correct his jaw and to pull painful teeth. We want to thank the staff at Motherlode Vet, especially Dr. Mario, who took excellent care of Mouse, though he was not an easy patient! All is well, and Mouse has found a loving home with the Torres family in Lake Wildwood. He will need one more surgery to complete his care and will be a cherished family member. Cookie has also found a family. Kudos to all!

We are still raising funds to pay for Mouse if you would like to contribute, call 530-350-2099.

Ramona Greb: Where critical thinking leads me


Critical thinking should be taught in all grades. So many problems besides COVID. The first responsibility of schools is the teaching of the 3 R’s: reading, (w)riting, and ‘rithmetic.
