Part 2 of our segmented class will answer the question of why we would even use essential oils.  Some of you are already used to the idea of natural remedies, so this may not be a question.  But most of us did not grow up using natural remedies, we went to the doctor and asked for the pill, …

The Messenger recently published an article under the View by an apologist for the communist regime in China.  This article was full of communist Chinese talking points about racism and “finger pointing” (who else to point to).

I am among the 1,200 plus Foresthill water rate payers who objected to the FPUD “water rate study” and to its potential implementation.  I also support recalling the current FPUD Board and replacing them with people who will take  our community concerns under advisement.
