NILAND - Since the carnival rides stopped coming to the Tomato Festival about four years ago, the festival had been boring and lonely, according to sell and trade merchant Jaime Calsada - but this year it's different.  Probably the whole town visited the festival at some point during the weekend, said Calsada, and “they are loving it.” For Calsada, business was very good this weekend, with Sunday slowing down considerably because “today (residents) are burned out.” Some 600 people came to the festival, he said.

I went to Costco the other day and bought car batteries and beer. If you don't have a battery core to return, there is a $9 disposal fee you get refunded when you bring back the core.

I observed that for the past few weeks, there were a couple of dead dogs and a cat lying on the side of Austin Road and they had been there for several days. I want to know who or what public office is in charge of picking up dead dogs and cats on county roads?
