The People of Diversion
When it comes to the people caught up in our criminal justice system, the first 24 hours are the most crucial. From the second a person is locked behind bars, a countdown is underway for them to get released from jail in 24 hours or less.

Binge for breakfast
It’s been a general rule of mine over the years that if a restaurant has a specific dish in the name, you don’t order anything other than that dish and expect a positive result.

To Boldy Go
More than 100 years ago, conventional wisdom was that building a utility system in a one-horse town like Lafayette wasn’t a good idea.

TO LIVE MY LIFE WITH ZEST
What I know for sure is that when I wake up in the morning I stand up straight rather than bent at the waist, creaky and stiff. I am stronger and more agile than when I moved to Lafayette five years ago from the San Francisco Bay area. I was not a couch potato in California.

THE MOTHER WILL SEE YOU NOW

The term “gentle C-section” or “familycentered C-section” is a movement toward a new approach to the surgery that makes modifications to make mother and baby feel more connected during the procedure. And at LGMC, one small change could mean a big step for some mothers toward feeling more connected to birth in C-sections.
