Elders, youth praised in Ukiah
Speaker urges: 'Be young in your old age'
On a day set aside for honoring those who have lived quite a few years, at the City of 10,000 Buddhas in Talmage Saturday, it was also noted that we should never underestimate the value of youth.
"Elders are the world's most honorable people, but they also bear great responsibility," said 5th District Mendocino County Supervisor Dan Hamburg, quoting the words of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, who founded the city, at the annual Honoring Elders Day. "People should have youth in old age; as one grows older, they should also grow younger," as difficult as that may be to accomplish.
Upper Russian River Clean-Up Day
The Senior High boys make no secret of their ambition. “We want to give back to the community,” says Ted Yap, secretary of the new Developing Virtue Action Club (DVAC), on his way to the Upper Russian River Clean-Up, which happened last Saturday, the 27th of September. Officially, the club started earlier, but did not have the opportunity to hold a meeting until a week before the river clean-up.

The purpose of this trip was to pick up trash across the county and encourage a transition towards zero waste.
