Fire reminder: It’s been noted before but can’t be overemphasized — we’re at the height of the wildfire season. After four years of drought, the fire danger in the regional parks and other open space is extreme. As a result, smoking is prohibited in wildland areas throughout the regional parks. Campfires and barbecues are permissible only in designated areas, and they are prohibited when fire danger is high. Park visitors can help by not smoking along the trails, extinguishing barbecues and disposing of coals properly and not driving over or parking on dry grass. Your car’s hot manifold can ignite it. If you see smoke, call 911.

Jacqueline, our middle one, will be one of the dancing children in ‘The Nutcracker.’ The oldest, Jacob, who plays football and wrestles, might play the Nutcracker Prince. “I wanted him to be comfortable in his body, so I encouraged him strongly to take dance classes. One of his principals last year at Redeemer Lutheran School, Mr. (Michael) Mancini, had been a kicker for the 49ers. He said he had taken ballet and it had really improved his flexibility, which helped him be a better punter. And he said it right in front of my son. I just had this big smile,” Dugan says, laughing.
