Are You Ready to Vote?

I'm still reading up on the candidates and propositions. It's not easy finding information that I can easily understand. Here are some links for local and state items that I've found useful. Maybe they'll come in handy for you, too. Remember, voting day is Tuesday, November 6.

General Information
~ San Benito County Registrar of Voters
~ San Benito County Election results
~San Benito County Ballot at Smart Voter

Local Candidates and Issues
You can view videotapes of mayoral candidates and a few other local candidates at Community Media Access Partnership (CMAP). Here's the link.

On 10/16 and 10/17 the Farm Bureau hosted a candidate forum. On Channel 17, you can watch the videotape of the two nights. You can find the schedule for its showing at this CMAP link

San Benito County Today is the Web site for the Hollister Free Lance. By registering (it's free), you can read articles about candidates and Measure E, as well as opinion pieces by the candidates and their supporters (or not supporters).

2012 SBHS Homecoming Parade

Some say Hollister High.

Others say San Benito High School.

In my day, it was San Benito Joint Union High School. Quite a mouthful, yep.

Yesterday afternoon was the Homecoming Parade. I don't recall the last time I saw one. Most likely my senior year. I have to say, I almost felt like crying. It must come with being older.

For more photos, check out the Homecoming Parade album at Take 25 to Hollister Facebook page.

More of the Tuesday Sunset

The moon was in its Waxing Gibbous phase on Tuesday (October 23). Of course, you know what building you're looking at and on what downtown street corner it stands. Sure you do.

Here's another view of San Benito Street as the sun set that day.

Sunset Time on San Benito Street


No doubt it was a long, hard day for the bicycle food vendor. Hopefully, it was a good day of sales for him.

"Half" a Rainbow

As the Husband and I were walking this morning, we spied "half" a rainbow. It was about to melt into the light of the day.

"I wonder where it's raining," said the Husband.

Ten minutes later, we heard what sounded like thunder, or, as the Husband put it, someone dropping some wooden planks. It had to be a humongous giant then with very, very thick slabs of wood.

But, looking ahead, we could see the clouds crying rain over the mountains that kept Cienega Valley within.
