A proposed joint venture between the sheriff and the California Highway Patrol appeared to be dead last spring. But after last week’s visit by CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow, there is a glimmer of hope.

We emphasize the glimmer part.

Everything will have to come together just right to make the collaboration a reality. The plan — devised by Sheriff Greg Hagwood and local CHP Commander Joe Edwards — is to build a shared office for the sheriff and CHP on a campus that would include a free-standing jail and possibly even the fire department.

I’ve always been a dreamer. I am willing to push the limitations of convention to discover what I am capable of, to learn what I really love, and to change things that I am not satisfied with.

Six months ago, my boyfriend, Larry, and I packed up all of our belongings and headed for California with more faith than actual plans. I just wanted to write.

Sometimes the impact of a sporting event can’t be measured by mere numbers on a scoreboard. That was the case Friday night when the Portola High School football team played host to Weed.

Just days after a savage wildfire burned much of their town, including many of the players’ homes, the Cougars chose to honor their commitment and made the four-hour journey to play a football game in Portola.

Portola has weathered its share of the economic downturn, including a bank branch closure and shuttered storefronts along Commercial Street. It’s also faced a maelstrom at City Hall, with contentious meetings and turnover in leadership. But the atmosphere is changing thanks to fresh leadership and the dogged determination of those who refuse to see Portola decline, but who instead envision, and are committed to, securing a prosperous future.
