1914 33,199,000 feet of lumber shipped With the loading and clearing of the Barge Redfern, lumber laden, the shipment of lumber and other forest products from this port came to a close. The total shipments of lumber this year were about 15,000,000 feet less than in 1913, but slightly less than in 1912. The handling of lumber from cars to boats at the local lumber dock has furnished work, at good wages, to a large number of men ever since the dock was constructed.

Gerry Cheney Pastor of the Bay Area Vineyard In my last column, I wrote about how easy it is for us for us to feel alienated from those close to us, especially our spouses, because of their defensive behavior when they are engaged in destructive habits. Every time we try to confront them with something that we see as destructive, a fight ensues. Their reaction is so severe that eventually we just give up trying, leaving us asking the key question: How do I get through to them? To answer, the first step begins with letting the person with the problem reap what they sow.
Donna Bellino for the Lake County News-Chronicle I always wonder what my dogs and cats think when I haul in the Christmas tree and decorate it for the holidays. I'm guessing it's, "Wow, what a great idea. Thanks!" Every cat I've had climbs the tree or bats at ornaments. There are a number of safety issues for your pets and your family during the holidays. Here are some tips to keep everyone safe and jolly. 1: The tree The tree should be placed in a corner and tied down so it cannot tip over. Any electrical cords for lights should be taped securely to the floor and wall.
Erin Carlson for the Lake County News-Chronicle The holiday season has officially arrived. Is it just me, or has time just flown by since summer's end? Christmas is less than a month away, and that leaves us with very little time to get a lot accomplished. There will be decorations to put up, frenzied shopping trips, gifts to be wrapped after the kids have gone to bed, cookies to be baked and holiday engagements to attend.
Katya Gordon for the Lake County News-Chronicle Today we're going to talk about lake effect snow, something close to all of our hearts. You have to either love them or hate them, those intense snowfalls that blow over for an hour or a day near the shore but leave our friends up the hill dry. How is lake effect snow affected by climate change? The recent super snowstorm east of Lake Erie is a good example of "an extreme weather event with a climate change connection," according to Paul Huttner, Minnesota Public Radio's chief meteorologist.
