An all year Canada College Farmers Market which is hosted by the West Coast Farmers Market Association, will be on Sundays from 9 – 1 starting April 15th. We have always had the one sponsored by the Kiwanis, but now we an extra one that we can frequent.
The local Rotary Club will be launching their new evening farmers market soon as well. It will be held at the corner of Broadway and Hamilton streets downtown on Tuesdays, 4-8 p.m., beginning May 1, through September.
“These [farmers markets] are a great way to get fresh produce and other products, and also to join together with friends and neighbors as you shop,” said Malcolm Smith with the City of Redwood City. “These markets take place on a variety of days, so take a look and get them on your calendar!”

I have read about this before and was quite concerned. Where is the dialogue about the budget shortfall for parks? All I’ve heard is what parks will be closed. How about taking the money out of administration and keeping parks open? Another blogger was kind enough to remind me of all this. The whole article appears at: http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/07/25/MNPJ18UJ3C.DTL
“We want to cobble together some deals and see if we can keep some of these parks open,” said Roy Stearns, the spokesman for the state parks system. “We’re hoping we can do that all across the state.”
The plan, according to Stearns, is to negotiate partnerships with cities, counties, private companies, nonprofit organizations and philanthropists in an effort to provide maintenance, concessions and other functions that the state can no longer afford.
It has been estimated that for every dollar spent, the state parks generate $2.35 in tax revenue from economic activity in the local communities surrounding the parks.
The deal struck Friday to close most of the $26.3 billion budget gap avoids the plan previously proposed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to shutter more than 219 state parks, including Mount Tamalpais, Angel Island and 48 other Bay Area sites.
Nine Bay Area parks were listed then, including Henry W. Coe State Park near Morgan Hill, Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve near Guerneville, Tomales Bay State Park near Point Reyes, windswept 170-acre Candlestick Point State Recreation Area and Benicia Capitol State Historic Park.
The California State Parks Foundation had proposed charging Californians $15 extra to register their cars. The fee would have covered the parks’ $145 million general fund and allowed California drivers to visit the state’s 279 parks free.
“We’re concerned that the closing of 30 to 50 parks this year is just the start of annual budget problems,” she said.

(ARA) – If you’re an adult American, chances are you’re in debt. What would happen to that debt if you should die unexpectedly? It’s not likely your debtors would write it off. It’s far more likely they’ll pursue your estate or surviving spouse to recoup the debt. And money taken from your estate is money taken from your survivors – be they a spouse, children, parents or even siblings.
“If you have debt that will survive you, you need life insurance to protect loved ones left behind,” says Scott Luchesi, president of Garden State Life Insurance. “In today’s economic climate, where debt is more prevalent than at any other time in our history, life insurance is a must for virtually every debt-carrying adult.”
Life insurance is no longer a families-only financial planning tool. Increasingly savvy young, single professionals are also opting for life insurance as a way to ensure that their student loans, credit card debt, car loans and other debts won’t diminish the estate they may leave behind to parents, siblings or other survivors. Families also continue to rely on life insurance to replace the deceased’s income, pay off mortgages and provide for children’s education.
Stiff competition in the insurance industry has created a new crop of affordable, exam-free term products, like Garden State’s BudgetGard. These are continuing to grow in popularity as more consumers realize that term life provides the best coverage value for their money, and is more convenient and less intrusive than applying for a life insurance policy that requires a medical exam.
“With term life, you purchase a policy with affordable monthly premiums for a specific term,” says Luchesi. “If you die during that term, your beneficiary receives the full policy value, just as they would with a whole life policy. The advantage to you is that the premiums are generally far lower for term than with other types of policies, and you can use that savings in premium to apply more money towards reducing your debt more quickly or saving for your future.”
With BudgetGard term life, you won’t need to take a health exam and your premium is guaranteed not to increase for the level premium period you choose – one, seven, 15 or even 20 years.

This is just a start, you do need life insurance at any age, if you are responsible for a loved one. I have several recommendations for you. But, this is a start for you to gather information.
All the best for you and your loved ones…
