Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2001 Caribou Corners and apples for sale in Canyon Start Oman is working on Caribou Corners' store and restaurant in hopes of at- tracting a buyer. The original problem of negotiating a lease with PG&E has turned out to be more of a problem with the Public Utilities Com- mission. According to Omen, the agency has prohibited PG&E from negotiating land leases at this time. They start across the road, hear a car, stop, reverse end expire due to extreme trauma inflicted by automobile tires. This time of the year tree squirrels are at their busiest gathering food for the winter ahead. It doesn't make my day any brighter hitting the poor beasts, but taking evasive ac- tion to avoid doing so could be fatal, and I ain't talking about the squirrels' demise. Lots of times what confuses the little critters is a car com- ing from both directions. In these cases, evasive ac- tion could mean a head-on ac- cident. I just try to hang tight and hope they pass between the wheels. But there is a pos- sible benefit to the carnage as observed by one enterprising Canyonite; there is plenty of raw material alongside the road to provide a nice warm fur coat. John Sherck, of Twain, has just returned from a three-week visit to Ohio. Sherck was visiting family in what has become an annual pilgrimage and wife Nancy is very happy to have him home. "I was running out of things to talk to the cat about," she says. Since I am an expert at fe- line conversation, I can un- derstand where she is coming from. There are only a few variations on: my food dish is almost empty; my water isn't fresh enough; I want out; I don't want out; it's too cold/hot; pet me; don't touch me; excuse me while I shred the furniture; and finally, "What? No tuna?!" Pete Dryer, of Twain, will be taking his campground managers to Tahoe this week- end to show his appreciation for their work through the season. Once again the camp- ing season was marred by fire. First the Antelope Lake blaze, then as the season was winding down the devastat- ing fire in the Yankee Hill area broke out. New easy open package, tear across the dotted line. Following these deceptive, in- nocuous instructions, I grasped the package of lunch meat by a corner and tore as indicated. The stuff didn't even stretch. My suggestion to the manu- facturer for a more realistic label is as follows: Apply freshly sharpened chain saw to dotted line (be sure to wear eye protection). My new neighbors, Mike and Jaehyea Wiedeman, are offering apples harvested from their trees. The apples are wonderful, tree-ripened, mostly Golden Delicious and can be purchased at 902 Rush Creek Road, about one mile off of Highway 70.
