Critter Corner: The quail come about three times a day and eat, and eat, scratching up everything. Mama Hawk has also been on the prowl. I've told her how beautiful she is, she just prunes herself a bit then she is on her way. Our tiny little birds are still here in droves, they seem to like to eat when the quail do, so it is quite a sight. They just eat, and they eat a lot.

And an even bigger thanks to Dr. Ben Palmer, who donated his time at Lang Elementary. He even stayed longer than scheduled, away from his practice to do vision checks for 284 students. Also thanks to Arroyo Grande Lion Karen Bracellos, and Pismo Beach Lion Joe Knudson. Karen worked at 16 schools on the Central Coast, including six of our local schools making sure things went well and Joe volunteered his time to help us at three Nipomo school screenings. This project was headed up by Lion KC Cornett. What a great job he and all the Lions did.
