THIS INFORMA TION IS NOT INTENDED TO COMMENT ON THE GUILT OR INNOCENCE OF THOSI LISTED, NOR IS IT AN INDICATION OFTHE FINAL DISPOSITION OFTHESE CASES Thanksgiving is a holiday to give thanks and share special moments with family and friends. While the original Thanksgiving might have taken place during a time when food was sparse, nowadays Thanksgiving often involves excessive amounts of food, with more food ending up in the garbage than in celebrants' bel- lies. The United States Department of Agricul- ture projects that Americans will throw away more than 200 million pounds of edible turkey meat this Thanksgiving holiday. And Thanksgiving typically ushers in a period of wastefulness, as the U.S. Envi- ronmental Protection Agency says American house- holds produce roughly 25 percent more trash be- tween Thanksgiving and New Year's Day than during the rest of the year. Reducing waste is a worthy goal year-round, but especially so during the holiday season. And accom- plishing that goal can be done without sacrificing A funeral service will held on Tuesday, Novem- ber 22, 2016 10 a.m. at the United Methodist Church in Biggs for Glo- ria Andes, 93, of Biggs, California. Gloria passed away peacefully on November 15, 2016, at home with her family by her side. Gloria had lived in Fresno, Sacramento, Ha- waii, Denver and Albu- querque during her life as a military wife. She married the love of her life, Lloyd Andes,. who preceded her in death in 2010. They moved back to their hometown of Biggs in 1977, where they lived out the rest of their lives among family and friends. Gloria gradu- Gloria Andes ated from Biggs High School and then attended Fresno and Sacramento State Colleges. She was very active in the United Methodist Church, the Biggs Women's Club, Pink Ladies and the Dols of Yuba City. In her younger years she was a Rainbow Girl and she served as secretary of the Alpha Chi Omega Auxil- iary. She was also an avid golfer, a bowler and en- joyed many an at rnoon on the tennis court. Gloria leaves behind her son, Dane Andes and wife Jeane; daugh- ter, Jane Ulanowski and Dennis Woods; three grandchildren: Kristy and husband Mark Lom- bardo, Megan Ulanowski, and Nick Andes and wife Angela; and four great- grandchildren. Pastor Darla Hadriek will officiate the service. Interment will be in the Gridley Biggs Cemetery Arrangements en- trusted to Gridley-Bloek Funeral Chapel The family suggests contributions to the Biggs United Method- ist church or a charity of your choice. holiday traditions. Use fine china when serving meals. Thanksgiv- ing provides an opportunity to serve meals on fine china and use the silverware that has gone unused instead of disposable plates and utensils. In addition to adding a touch of elegance to meals, reusable china and silverware is less wasteful than paper plates and plastic utensils. Cloth napkins and other table linens are also more eeo-friendly than paper napkins. Decorate using natural items. Scour the great outdoors for all-natural centerpiece materials or other items that can be turned into wreaths and gar- lands. Vases filled with pine cones and acorns make for beautiful, inexpensive and festive decorations. Shop locally and organically. When shopping for Thanksgiving dinner, choose local produce, poul- try and grains whenever possible. Resist the urge to buy more than you need as well. Skip some of the less- popular dishes that are used only to make the table seem full. Buy a small turkey or think about only serv- ing turkey breasts, which tend to be the most popular cuts of the bird. Use reusable shopping bags to carry items home and reduce waste even further. Light candles and reduce energy consumption. During the meal, eat by candlelight and turn offlights in other areas of. the home that are not in use. Rather than turning on the television, take the party out- doors and play a game of football on the front lawn. Have a local Thanksgiving. Start a new tradition and invite nearby friends and family over for the holi- day instead of traveling long distances. According to Use Less Stuff, a resource for eco-eonseious men and women, if each family reduced gasoline consumption by one gallon (roughly 20 miles), they could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by one million tons. Send home the leftovers. Send each guest home with some leftovers if you have any. This way the re- frigerator isn't left full of items that will end up uneat- en. Otherwise, donate uncooked food to a local food bank Use any scraps of vegetables in a compost pile. Don't let recycling fall by the wayside. Remem- ber to recycle all applicable items. Just because it's a holiday doesn't mean recycling habits should be for- gotten. Encourage guests to pitch in by dearly mark- ing recycling bins. Thanksgiving can be less wasteful without de- tracting from the enjoyment and true meaning of the holiday. By Barbara Ott The leaves are coming down. I love fall leaves. I love the idea of abscission which is the process of the leaves releasing from tree branches. My deciduous Bonsai trees have finished and are very easy to dean up after...they are afferall very small. The decorative pear tree in my front yard is another story. The daily raking has only just begun. This tree is a delight in the summer as it shields my house from the west sun. It is a wonderful sculpture of branches in the winter as it lets in the needed warmth of the west sun. It has at least a gazillion leaves and they fall off at leisure. It dumps offleaves regularly and it lasts all winter long. Believe me when it is February and I am still rak- ing up loads of leaves I am not as wistful about the wonder of leaves dropping as I am right now in the beginning of the raking season. My neighbor asks me why I don't "leaf blower" the leaves...I am old fash- ioned when it comes to leaves and I like the silent act of raking. Be ready for me to be complaining about this wonder soon.
