Wonderful that The Indie is helping place rescued pets. Good job.

County Vector Control has an office in Summerland. Phone #: 681-4900. Go there to get your FREE gambusia (mosquito fish). Anyone with a pond should have some of these fish to help take care of any mosquito problem.
Just don't let the gambusia go/rehome them into any of the local ponds or creeks, as they are considered to be an invasive species. They are known to interfere with native fish procreation.
Also: Do not feed your gambusia. They will do just fine nibbling on aquatic plants/moss and consuming mosquito larvae.

All this time, I thought it was spelled "loadie" lane.

And, by the way, as long as I am sharing info on correct vocab words: an "altercation" is not what took place between the officer hit in the head with a daypack full of liquor bottles and the kid who attacked the officer.
An altercation is a disagreement or an argument. C'mon, Indie. Call it an attack, call it an attempt to injure, call it an assault. It's not an argument when someone hits you in the head with intent to cause bodily harm.
On The Deltopia Disaster Debriefed

"Disaster?" Really? On a par with the WA mudslide or the loss of the Malaysian flight 370? Those are disasters. "Debacle" is more on point. But maybe the writer didn't think readers know the meaning of "debacle?"
And, for the record, a doppelgänger is "an apparition or a double of a living person." Deltopia might have seemed like one living creature, akin to say the critters of the Great Barrier Reef, all meshed together, but the event itself is not a living being or the "double goer" of a human being.

Who has read this book? I have, and it's a huge snooze. Repetitive and lack luster. I wrote a much longer comment to that effect, days ago. But it seems The Independent saw fit to delete my comment. Hmm.
Does it qualify as an attack on the writers when I comment that I was extremely disappointed in the book? Oh well.

This book is such a snooze. Seriously soporific. And I knew some of these guys, back in the day. It must have been hard work, dulling down the good bits. I sure hope they ramp up the "artistic license" embellishments, if anyone ever tries to put this up on the big screen.
Otherwise, there will be copious amounts of Homer Simpson drool puddles coating the theater seats.

@Josh. So many comments, so little time. Your comment of Apr 6 at 12:05pm had me laughing so hard, I couldn't see the rest of the comments for the tears in my eyes. People were throwing heads? hahahaha
