Rants and Raves 6/3/15


RAVE: A huge “Thank You” to all the helping hands who helped move the North County Outlook to our new, larger office at 1331 State Avenue, Suite A (right next door to our former office). Their help is very much appreciated. We are planning an Open House for the community and will announce the date and time in an upcoming issue of the North County Outlook.

RAVE: A big rave to those people who dedicated the Marysville Cemetery for Memorial Day. It looked wonderful !! Very patriotic. Thanks for taking your time to honor those who served. Totally awesome sight ­—gave me chills.

RAVE: Thanks to the City of Marysville for the great Spray Park which recently re-opened for the summer. It’s a wonderful place to take the kids.

RAVE: I witnessed a young couple dealing with fussy children They handled the situation with love and calm intervention. Congratulations to the young couple and to the parent of the couple. They appeared to have been raised appropriately and doing the same for their children.

RAVE: Good for the Marysville School District for setting up their free WiFi around schools. I think we take for granted that Internet access is still a costly commodity and all students should have access to it if they need it, especially in today’s classrooms which are increasingly connected to the web.

RANT: This country’s lack of paid maternity and paternity leave is ridiculous. We say we’re a country that supports families and mothers and fathers but when it comes to creating a stable and economically sustainable first year for babies and their families we always fall short. This country has never tried to make sacrifices towards improving those goals, despite nearly every other country in the world having better laws in regard to paternity and maternity leave.
