Still Writing
By Cookie J. Arnett
July 16, 2014

I have noticed readers are still "tuning in" to the GCG. I am sorry the paper is no longer being updated. I have relocated for a job. However, I am still writing and you can still keep up with what I am doing.

I am now writing a blog. So far, the posts have been relatively short. Soon, though, I will be including information about events and businesses in my local area. Since it is a popular destination for many, I am sure you will be interested.

Be sure to pop over to my blog, Coolstuph4u.webs.com, to see what's up- and be sure to share the site with everyone you know. My blog will continue to feature the interesting information you have come to expect from me- and much more.

Thanks to everyone for your continued interest.

Critter Pass Ranch-Where Animals Go to Be Loved
By Cookie J. Arnett
June 18, 2014

Nestled in the back roads of Palermo, there is a unique home where abused, special-needs and otherwise homeless animals go for a little TLC—and a whole lot of love. Claire Pass and her husband, Ron, moved to Palermo, California, in 2006 when Ron was having difficulty finding work. Claire has experience as a Veterinarian Tech and had always dreamed of running a rescue “farm.” However, she did not just want to care for large animals such as horses and cows.

Ron & Claire opened Critter Pass Ranch Rescue & Sanctuary in 2006 after they moved from Oregon to Palermo with a couple of horses. Since then, Pass and her family have rescued animals of all sizes, from mice and ferrets to ducks and horses.

One very special furry family member of Critter Pass Ranch (CPR) is Barney. FULL STORY

Opinion
Recharging at the Beachcomber Motel & Spa
By Cookie J. Arnett

I have been experiencing a lot of trials lately- and a lot of stress. Obstacles have been thrown in my path that have prevented me from writing and publishing the GCG as I would like. It has been a very tough time, but I don't give up so easily.

Monday night I had the opportunity to go to Fort Bragg and stay at a great ocean-front hotel. The Beachcomber Motel & Spa, located at 1111 North Main Street, has some great amenities.

One of the best features, in my opinion, is the view. I was able to see a lot from my private balcony. People walk up and down a path that runs behind the hotels- some with dogs, some without. There were even a couple of cute little kids riding their bikes.

I had full view of the ocean. I saw some people on the bluffs taking in their own view and others hanging out on the beach. FULL STORY
