Readers’ Corner

Oops! The date of the Girl’s Day Out was correct in an earlier column, but the day of the week was wrong. July 11 is Sunday! That’s the Deep Ecology Institute’s fund-raiser that includes a professional hairstyling/cut, makeup and professional photos for $100, part of which is tax deductible as a donation to the environmental group. Call Marge Kaiser at 265-6649 if you have questions or want an appointment.

See more pictures: One of The Union’s best-kept secrets is our “Browse and Buy” photo service available on our Web site, (Or, you can go to to access it quicker.)

This is how it works: if our photographers are at a parade or a Little League game or any other community event, they will place their extra pictures (ones that don’t run in the paper) on the Web site. If you see one you like, just click a button and purchase the photo, a T-shirt with the photo on it, a mouse pad with the photo, or a coffee mug with the photo. News photographers tend to take many more pictures at every event than we can possibly use, and this is a nice way to provide them to the public.

There is a charge if you order a photo or any other item, but I have seen the quality firsthand and these items are nice, and the photos are crisp and clear. This feature is right on top of our Web site, so you can just click on it and get started.

Close call: Curt Sutliff of Nevada City told me about this one. The Sierra Foothills Audubon Society (Placer and Nevada counties) had a field trip the weekend of June 26 to the Kern River Valley, east of Bakersfield. Leader Ed Pandolfino of Auburn planned to go to the Johnsondale area near Kernville, but he changed his mind at the last minute and the group went to the Glenville area instead. Well, that day in Johnsondale, a young woman was mauled and seriously injured by a mountain lion. I hope Ed bought a Lottery ticket, with that kind of luck!
