Creature Corner: Jan. 12, 2012

Paws up to Winifred, our Weimaraner puppy, who gave everyone who walked in the door those big puppy eyes, and made contact with her forever family. We have pictures at ARF of Bruno, a chocolate American Staffordshire, who needs to be rehomed as his owner is ill. Do you know what love is? To Sweetpea, the ARF Diva, it’s a soft caress, a warm blanket, a

Outside Idyllwild: Seven days of summer …

In my 35 years of living in Idyllwild, I have seen many weather anomalies, like snow in June and occasionally 70 degree days in the heart of winter. Nevertheless, I have never experienced anything like the first week of January. When you can resort to wearing shorts and T-shirts, open all the windows and turn […]

Before Our Time: Village center …

In a place that changes as slowly as Idyllwild, what’s new about a New Year? Seven years ago it was the imminent opening of our newest commercial development, the Village Centre shops at the corner of North Circle and Village Center drives. New? In fact, this complex was built on just about the oldest commercial […]

Fire and Forest: New directions …

2011 was a very good year for the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council. The money came late for our grant to help homeowners with abatement but we were able to quickly put the money to use over the summer. The quality of our newsletter is good and so are our membership numbers. New people joined […]

Happy New Year from all of our ARF canines and felines to all of the four leggeds in our community. Paws up to Bonnie, the beagle/Dalmatian mix, who made a brief appearance at ARF only to be scooped up and carried away to her forever home. Sadly, we say goodbye to Purdy, a female golden retriever, who will always be in our hearts.

Outside Idyllwild: The sun also rises …

The day after Christmas, Miss Wyoming and I drove to Gillette. Wyo. We left Denver in the early morning darkness and reached the state line before sunup; and we were greeted with a sunrise. What a sunrise it was! The clouds were lit up with an ever changing pattern of pink, red, orange and gold. […]

Lifelines: Connecting to Life …

Editor’s note: This week, the Town Crier is proud to introduce a new column to our collection. Its subject will be connections and lifelines. Ted Ewing, Ph.D., is the director of program and curriculum at Idyllwild Pines. Beginning in 2012, this column will appear monthly. I had been buried under the burden of doctoral dissertation […]

Happy New Year from the many four-leggeds, and two, at the ARF house. If our pets could talk, what New Year’s resolution do you think they would have?

Outside Idyllwild: Way outside Idyllwild …

This town is much bigger than Idyllwild. So are the mountains and the streams look more like rivers. Still, I feel at home in Denver, Colo. It’s a frosty Christmas morning. I have just returned from a stroll in the snow covered park which has many bike and walking trails. The one we chose meandered […]
