Earth Week: Reducing Air Pollution
By Cookie J. Arnett
April 23, 2014

There are many ways to minimize air pollution, one of the foremost being carpooling. Many people carpool or ride share to get to and from school and work.

Another great way to help decrease air pollution is to take public transportation. Oroville has a great public transportation system with many bus stops. Information about the bus routes can be found by clicking on the link below.

Some have taken up bike riding or walking. These means of transportation are excellent, not only because they lower air pollution but because they improve health.

Using yard clippings for mulch rather than burning them also promotes healthier air. Doing so is also better for individuals with respiratory ailments.

In order to avoid developing respiratory ailments and polluting the air, individuals behoove themselves- and others- by quitting smoking. FULL STORY

Positive Thought of the Day- April 22, 2014
By Cookie J. Arnett
April 23, 2014

Jacob had just finished addressing each of his sons. In his final breaths, he gave them special instructions.

Genesis chapter 49, verses 28 through 33 says, "These are the 12 tribes of Israel and what their father said to them when he gave each of them his special blessing.

Then he gave them these instructions, 'I am about to join my ancestors in death. Bury me with my ancestors in the cave in the field of Ephron the Hittite. Abraham bought the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, east of Mamre in Canaan, from Ephron the Hittite to use as a tomb. Abraham and his wife Sarah are buried there. Isaac and his wife Rebekah are buried there. I also buried Leah there. The field and the cave in it were bought from the Hittites.'

When Jacob finished giving these instructions to his sons, he pulled his feet into his bed. FULL STORY

Earth Day 2014: Recycle- What Does It Mean?
By Cookie J. Arnett
April 22, 2014

One good way to help keep unnecessary items out of the landfill is to recycle.

Of course, the first things people think of when they hear the word "recycle" are plastic, aluminum, and glass. This is a good place to start. Some recycling centers are paying worthwhile prices for these items.

Still, some individuals do not want to go through the trouble of gathering all of these items together and hauling them to a recycling center. If you are one of these people, there are other options.

It is highly possible that you know someone who recycles and would love to have what you don't want. They might even be willing to pick them up at your house and save you the trouble of transporting.

Check with friends and coworkers. You may have some Facebook friends who would like to have your recyclables. FULL STORY

Goal: A Healthy Earth
By Cookie J. Arnett
April 21, 2014

Tuesday is Earth Day, so it would be good to use that day to think of how each one of us can help keep the earth healthy.

The Gold City Gazette is declaring the entire week Earth Week. Each day, helpful tips will be published to aid each and every citizen on this earth to make our home a better place to live.

The tasks will be simple. They are things that everyone can do- if they just want to. It just takes a little effort and a lot of caring.

One of the best ways to keep our earthly home a happy, healthy one is to refrain from littering. Many times, a person may think, "It's just a gum wrapper," or "Nobody is going to notice a baggie."

The truth is- people do notice, especially when 20 people have the same thought and throw such items out of a car window. FULL STORY

Genesis chapter 49, verse 27 says, "Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; all morning he gorges on his kill, at evening divides up what’s left over." (The Message)

At first glance, this verse seems to indicate Benjamin was a ruthless, violent man. However, it is important to remember that Jacob was foretelling events that his son's descendents would fulfill.

With that in mind, we can think about those who came through Benjamin's family line. Several of those individuals were valiant soldiers in defense of God's name and reputation. Esther and Mordecai were two good examples of this.

At Genesis chapter 49, verses 22 through 26, Jacob gave Joseph a special blessing.

It says there, "Joseph is a fruitful tree beside a fountain. His branches shade the wall. He has been severely injured by those who shot at him and persecuted him, but their weapons were shattered by the Mighty One of Jacob, the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel. May the God of your fathers, the Almighty, bless you with blessings of heaven above and of the earth beneath—blessings of the breasts and of the womb, blessings of the grain and flowers, blessings reaching to the utmost bounds of the everlasting hills. These shall be the blessings upon the head of Joseph who was exiled from his brothers." (Living Bible)

Joseph had lived a hard life. He had been abused and persecuted for much of his young life. FULL STORY

Jacob had only good things to say about his sons, Asher and Naphtali.

Genesis chapter 49, verses 20 and 21 reveal what he said about them:

"Asher’s food is delicious, and he shall provide from the king’s delicacies. Naphtali is a doe running free that puts forth beautiful words." (Lexham English Bible)

Asher's life would be filled with an abundance of fine foods. He even went on to provide food for royal officials.

Naphtali was a strong, capable individual. Jacob's comments indicated that he might become a valiant leader.

By Cookie J. Arnett
April 18, 2014

Fire crews responded to a fire in the 1700 block of Cox Lane last night after a neighbor spotted the blaze and reported it to emergency services.

After reporting the fire, the witness helped the resident of the mobile home escape the inferno.

CalFire arrived at the scene shortly after the incident was reported and found the home fully engulfed in flames. Although fire fighters were able to get control of the fire within an hour, the home was a total loss. Damages were estimated to total $75,000.

Several vehicles and a number of pieces of farm equipment were salvaged from the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Jacob fortold that Dan would be a huge support for God's people.

He said at Genesis chapter 49, verses 16 through 18, "Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. I have waited for thy saving health, O LORD." (Jubilee Bible 2000)

Dan was to provide a great defense for God's true servants. He was a strengthening aid and bulwark for all those loyally taking refuge in God.

Jacob used an interesting analogy to describe his son, Issachar.

At Genesis chapter 49, verses 14 and 15, Jacob said, “Is?sa·char is a strong-boned donkey, lying down between the two saddlebags. And he will see that the resting-place is good and that the land is pleasant. He will bend his shoulder to bear the burden and will submit to forced labor. (New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures)

Issachar was a hard worker, and Jacob was proud of that. Issachar was willing to take responsibility and exert himself in whatever needed to be done. Those are very commendable qualities to exhibit.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors-A Labor of Kindness

January 27, 2014

Most Butte County residents are familiar with the Adopt-a-Highway program. Motorists are accustomed to seeing the signs while driving down the freeway. However, the Adopt-a-Highway program is not just for highways. Many organizations and individuals are volunteering to “adopt” roads throughout Oroville and other areas of Butte County.

Several years ago, businesses and nonprofit organizations began participating in the program. Residents in various neighborhoods and families soon started following suit, sponsoring various portions of local roads. Some volunteers honor loved ones through the program, such as in the case of one sign that reads “For Gina” on Grand Avenue.

A group of neighbors near Las Plumas High School decided to adopt a portion of Las Plumas Avenue. FULL STORY
