Back from furlocation

My first post-furlough task Monday morning was to go to the dedication of the remodeled Ontario City Hall, which I hope to write about here or in my column later this week. Anyway, it was nice to be back, and even nicer to be back on the payroll. (This economy is a killer.)

It wasn’t a bad week off. I bought a laptop, cleaned out closets, took bags of clothes and other items to Goodwill, took electronic waste to a dropoff center, went to L.A. via Metrolink a couple of times, visited some used bookstores, tidied up at home and paid to have my car washed by hand — first time I’ve ever done that (I’m more of a spray-it-myself guy).

But enough about me. What did I miss last week?

    Hi David,

    Good to have you back! You’ve been missed.

    Don’t know if you’ve had a chance to keep up with the paper, but you’ve been pulled into the Upland Animal Shelter’s euthanasia controvery:

    Care to respond? Or does cat got your tongue?

    Ok, we got Upland Shelter animal-gate…Spanglish Billboard-gate…and now Weiner-gate….I smell a couple of good columns coming our way.

    [Those columns you smell might be stinkers, but I appreciate the benefit of the doubt. — DA]

    Indeed, David. Get caught up and let us know your take on all this.

    Yes, I do have a mind of my own with which to form opinions, but I relish hearing how other folks feel about stuff.

    And, to say the least, you’re always providing a fresh and unique view

    I’ve missed that this past week.

    Where did you go to drop off the electronics? I’ve got a tool shed piled up with old boom boxes and stuff that I don’t know where to take… and I feel too guilty to just dump them in the landfill…

    Doug, please take your un-wanted e-waste to Foothill Family Shelter, 1501 W. 9th St. Upland 91786 (northeast corner off Benson). It will benefit families in transition…thanks.
