Out and About
After checking in with the Pleasanton Police Department this week, I was told to please remind everyone to LOCK YOUR DOORS! There have been around 10 vehicle burglaries and each time... yep...the doors were unlocked! You should also take your keys, hide your valuables and report any suspicious activity you may see.
Gone are the days of decorated shoeboxes filled with cutesy Valentine cards, but fear not. We have some sweet Valentine’s greetings to be shared on page 4B.
A nice surprise happened to our lunch group at the Rock House. Our Sports Editor Eric Smith has been interviewing the area superintendents in the Brush Country and McMullen’s superintendent Dave Underwood happened to be dining across from us.
When we got to the counter to pay, he had taken care of our whole group. So thanks, Mr. Underwood! We appreciate your kindness.

Well, it seems our groundhog friend in Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow last Thursday. And while we have had a relatively mild winter, I don’t mind admitting I’ve been a little chilled the past few days.
Maybe this Rodent Extraordinaire isn’t too off base. (Even though I have spied some phlox blooming already!)
Save the date
The United States Army Field Band will be performing at the Douglas Williamson Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, March 13 (during Pleasanton I.S.D.’s Spring Break).
