Great high school kid: I always love to write about kids doing great things – there is enough doom and gloom in the world, don’t ya think?

Denise Johnson wrote to me about a senior at Nevada Union High School. Her name is Lacy Bruning. She’s been employed with Cold Stone Creamery for two years and is a member of FFA. Denise says, “Did I mention that she’s a great kid?” So Lacy’s employers at Cold Stone are doing a very generous thing. On Thursday, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., they will donate 25 percent of their profits to Lacy as her scholarship from them. Denise says this could really help Lacy out if the word could get out to the community. Lacy is going to Butte College in the fall and plans to transfer to Chico State. She wants to be a teacher! Denise says Lacy’s family has been in Nevada County for years. So have some ice cream, and help a deserving student.

New ’boutique’ B&B coming to Nevada City: I met Gina Ramos the other night (her mom is Maria of Maria’s restaurant fame) and she told me she’s getting ready to open a unique bed and breakfast at 517 Broad St. called Bella Rosa Inn. “It will be very different,” Gina said, “because it will have flat screen TVs in the rooms, a sauna and a masseuse on premises.” There will be six rooms and Gina hopes to have it open by the beginning of July. She’s already got the phone line in if you want to make reservations: 265-9055.

Post office woes: This is an odd one. A reader said she received what looked like a greeting card in her home mail box that was addressed to a man in Pennsylvania, and it had the proper Pennsylvania ZIP code. The house numbers of the Nevada County address were the same, but not the name of the road – or the state. The reader looked up the man’s phone number on the Internet, told him she had received his mail and then mailed it back to him. What a nice person, huh? Oh, and the reader received the mail on March 1, and it was postmarked Feb. 12. What a mystery.

Amazing student: Chris and Jill Maxwell let me know that Dominic Onak, an eighth-grade student who will be graduating from Ready Springs School in June, has never missed a day of school! Kindergarten through eighth grade. Not only is Dominic a great student, but he’s a gifted athlete as well, excelling in both basketball and soccer, according to the Maxwells. Way to go, Dominic! If you see him, be sure and congratulate him!

Rabid fox near Willow Valley Road: It has been picked up, but a reader wanted me to tell people to beware. This person lives near the H.E.W. building.
