Tamale feed raised money for Broderick-based nonprofit Three Sisters Gardens BY MONICA STARK EDITOR@NEWS-LEDGER.COM Based in traditional Native American values of protecting Mother Earth and respecting all living things, Three Sisters Gardens based out of Broderick is a nonprofit organization bringing community members together to grow food and lives. Winter seeds sprouted about a month ago at the location, 317 4th St. A community gathering was held to transplant some seedlings and groom the weeds out. Reasons why these tasks are so important for the garden were discussed, as the mission of Three Sisters Gardens is to teach at-risk youth how to grow, harvest, and distribute organic vegetables and engage the community to get involved in supporting the at riskyouth population in Yolo County. Supporting the efforts of the nonprofit, many members of the community gathered at the Bryte VFW Post 9498 hall for a tamale feed fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 22. See Three Sisters, page 2

‘Emotional Support’/‘Medical Needs’ pets and the law

BY CAROL BOGART So maybe you read about the (guy? I think it was) who wanted to bring his ‘emotional support’ peacock on a plane, and the airline wouldn’t let him. Now of course, on the face of it, you might say, peacock??! A dog, yes. Cat maybe. Caged rodent, well, I guess. But PEACOCK? In general, my experience with peacocks has been that they’re not too friendly. Beautiful, but kinda mean. Let’s assume, though, that the person is pathologically afraid of flying. And can vouch for the peacock’s pleasing personality. If said person finds the company of his/her peacock reassuring, then isn’t it breed discrimination to say yes to an emotional support dog, but no to the peacock? I don’t know. I’m just musing. Speaking of breed discrimination, here’s something you may not know. If you rent and you have a medical need for a dog, California law says that such a dog can’t be discriminated against

on the basis of size or breed. I didn’t know that when I first rented my West Sac apartment in 2008. It has to allow dogs because some of the units here are Section 8 (HUD), and HUD says you have to allow dogs. Landlords can set a weight limit, though. Here, the weight limit is 25 pounds. Or 20. I forget. I had never before had a small dog, but, not knowing about the state law, I knew I’d rather have a small dog than no dog. Now, three dogs later, my current dog is a 90-pound lapdog in a big dog body. Bella got me through it when I lost my brother in July. I rarely cried, because if I did, Bella immediately parked her chin on my knee and looked worried. In June, scanning through dog ads online after my second dog, little Georgie, died, Bella’s ad on Pet Harbor said: “She loves everyone and everything.” My kind of dog. The next day, I was at the shelter when the doors opened. This big sweet dog had been in a kennel there for two months. Seven years old, she was so used to being overlooked she that look shelter dogs get when they’ve given up. Head dropped, shoulders slumped, not even looking up as a visitor stops a moment at their kennel.

It didn’t matter. I’d decided. This is the dog for me. An hour later, Bella – exuberantly happy – and I were headed home. Bella is now my official, complex-approved medical needs dog. Having her helps keep my blood pressure in check. Walking her is therapy for my arthritis and keeps my weight down (not enough, but more than just sitting on the couch feeling sorry for myself ). She sleeps with me at night. Snores like a walrus. I find it comforting. Here’s something else you might not know. Some shelters – maybe most – will waive all fees for seniors who adopt a senior dog! That break gave me enough money to pay for a class for Bella at Petco, where the dog trainer, Daren Pappas, specializes in teaching you how little you know about training dogs. (He is astonishingly effective. Bella, a former leash puller, now walks calmly beside me on a loose leash.) Her Pet Harbor ad also said that she’s “very, very smart.” She is. She’s wonderful. I can’t imagine life without her. You’re home now, Bella. This is it. You’re home. Carol Bogart is a longtime West Sac resident – and life-long animal lover. Column ideas? Comments?

“It went amazing,” Alfred Melbourne said the following day. After tallying up the sales, he estimated about 900 tamales were sold. “We had at least 100 people that went through there. We had to shut down the event.” From pork to chicken, cheese, to jalapeno and cheese, each variety was a hit among customers. “ I think they liked all of them. The feedback was very positive,” Alfred said. A good problem to have for their first tamale feed fundraiser, Alfred and his wife Manuela Melbourne plan to make this an annual event. In preparation, they made the meat prior to the event and froze it and then thawed it all the Thursday beforehand. The VFW was kind to open the doors early at 8 a.m. (rather than their regular noon open time). In a true community effort between the Melbournes and from local activist groups such as the Decolonization Project, Norcal Resist and the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL), tamales were made and volunteers set them to cook at various times. “We know we have to eat better. We have to put better fuel in our bodies. At-risk youth are hungry and the food they are likely to receive isn’t going to be as healthy.

forts to locate the missing cell phone. As a result the City of West Sacramento Street Department sent out another staff member, Mr. Joey Dussault, a maintenance worker for the Public Works Department. When the Cherry family received a phone call from the City of West Sacramento telling them that the cell phone had been recovered, they were happily surprised. They were given instructions as to where they could pick it up.

The family was very thankful that the outcome was positive, and that the cell phone was returned to them. They had discovered that Apple would not have covered the cost of a replacement. The Cherry family is very grateful for the efforts of the City of West Sacramento to recover their lost cell phone, especially for the help that Joey Dussault had given them by saving the day with his outstanding service.

Training opportunities for New docents at the Putah Creek South Fork Preserve Do you love spending time outdoors? Putah Creek Council invites the community to learn more about the nature that surrounds us and share that magic with others as a South Fork Preserve Docent. The Docents have been leading guided nature walks and Pop-Up Nature Centers at the South Fork Preserve, and upcoming training events are an ideal opportunity for new members to join this enthusiastic group. The South Fork Preserve is located on Mace Blvd. and offers stunning creek views, paths to traverse the riparian corridor, and an opportunity to replace the city buzz with that of pollinators and overhead birds. For more information about the Docent program and how to participate, join Putah Creek Council staff at an upcoming information session to learn more. Two meetings will be held at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, Small Conference Room (in the Children’s Department), 315 E. 14th Street, Davis on Monday, January 7 and Wednesday, January 16, both from 5:15 PM – 6:00 PM.

The undersigned or its predecessor caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (800) 280-2832 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.AUCTION.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 073260-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

West Sacramento News-Ledger

Should we rethink presidential powers? BY WIM LAVEN On Dec. 18, it was agreed that Donald Trump’s charitable foundation would be dissolved. The decision was reached as a result of findings that Donald Trump and his family abused the tax exempt status and abused campaign finance laws. The lawsuit is not over; a decision on $2.8 million in restitution and penalties as well as possible permanent ban against Trump and three of his children serving on nonprofits in New York still needs to be reached. Given what was described by the State’s Attorney General office as: “a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation -including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more. This amounted to the Trump Foundation functioning as little more than a checkbook to

serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests,” one hopes they are prevented from betraying the public’s trust in the future. One might ask, “what does this mean?” Trump is selfish and willing do whatever it takes to get what he wants for himself. His favorite tool is dishonesty—it is all purpose, he lies all the time. In his version of winning the public’s loss is his gain, and we’ve been “big league” losing. Reflecting on the dissolution of his corrupt Trump Foundation, as with so much of his storied career of dishonesty, reveals an ingenious ability to deceive unfettered by any moral decorum—his absolute willingness to betray. He is proof, in financial terms, that in this broken system cheaters do win, and he publicly brags that he doesn’t pay his debts because he is smart. On Dec. 2, his nearsightedness emerges with even greater clarity. In order to secure

$5 billion in funding for a completely unnecessary border wall Trump is willing to shut down the government just in time for Christmas. Forget the fact people don’t want it, and that it cannot get the votes to pass, the cost to taxpayers for a government shutdown is $6.5 billion per week. It is a repetition of his coercive practice. Trump has regularly used this terrorist tactic, earlier this year in an effort to block funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program is one example. But what if it is all much much worse? Trump is making everyone pay a huge price. His nuclear bomb on the economy could very well be another stunt. He has called himself a debt master, so I wouldn’t doubt that he has plans. He seems to have learned that destruction is easier than creation decades ago; he stole fortunes and left people in ruins by not paying his own

bills. His echo chamber continues to get scarier, Secretary of Defense Mattis has just resigned in protest to what is ultimately Trump’s complete refusal to acknowledge expertise as he makes supreme mistakes in policy decisions. Putin and Assad are celebrating the victory Trump has gifted them. Is it his ego? Does he fill his emptiness by seeing that his lies on Twitter can make a complete roller coaster out of the stock market? When he bragged about accomplishments in China a few weeks ago investors were optimistic, but when his lies were revealed for what they were the market plummeted. Or is it revenge? The reality that he is not above the law is likely setting in. Trump and kids are threatened with serving jail time for their corruption and other crimes. Is this just his way of lashing out against the people he sees as having done this

to him? He has ushered in the worst December since the Great Depression. I honestly don’t know his intentions. I’d guess with the first; that he is fully prepared to devastate the nation in securing greater personal fortune. But, that is only because he has lived his whole life with complete disregard for others. I am scared because he has truly mastered the craft of selfishness and, at least for the office of the President, he is running out of time. This all begs the question: Does Donald Trump wield too much power? Ought we rethink the destructive force of a single individual? Trump’s singular focus appears to be wealth, and his administration shows a willingness to break and bend rules to achieve goals, but it could be worse. Foreign emoluments are a big deal, because they suggest conflicts of interest in making decisions as head of the state, but what about flat-out selfishness? It is time that we face the ugly truth that selfish interest and military power are deadly combination. We may never know how many soldiers have been killed or terrorists recruited as a direct result of Trump’s self-serving tweets. His lies have consequences, the worst of which are experienced by others. What if he decided to support his base and bomb the caravan like many of them request about his make-believe invasion? We also never thought a President would tell 6,420 lies and misstatements in 649 days in office. It just seems unthinkable that such a corrupt individ-

ual could wield so much power, and maybe it is more power than a single person should have ever held. Do we really trust Trump to resist deploying the military if he thinks it will be good for his investments? It isn’t just a matter of convincing ourselves that a serial liar will live up to the oath of office, every indication suggests the only work he has done as President has been to serve himself—he’s only ever been faithful to himself. Dedicated public servants, like Mattis with four decades of service, cannot do it, and it is time to consider the horrific possibility that a single Trump mistake could end life as we know it. It wasn’t good democracy, but at least we thought there were adults in the room to restrain a tantrum, but they’re all disappearing. We have a corrupt administration, and we should seriously limit the disastrous potential of such an administration or any other. If we survive, we should take the steps to protect future generations. It is just too much that life and death are abused in pursuit of selfish interests—What if he thinks starting a war could help him win an election or protect him from investigation? What if he decided to go out with a bang?
