The parade was ex- cellent with participants taking the light require- ment seriously and an- nouncers Brian Bassett and Adam Sharrock had a great time as they did what comes naturally to both, talking up the floats, keeping the crowd enthused and enter- tained. There were so many people and groups that made this night fantastic, in particular Police Chief Dean Price and Dye who attended every planning meeting along with Ser- geant Scott Smallwood who attended meetings and was an immense help that night. To have the City's po- lice, electric and public works crews so involved is very much appreciated by the Chamber of Com- merce. Gridley Lions Club members are instrumen- hal in the parade running smoothly as they handle the line up each year and this year they even sold barbecued hot dogs. Parade Marshall Ruthann King was es- corted in Rich Jenkin's 1949 Hudson along with her adorable dog Spen- cer. It was a big addi- tion to have all the many vendors participate this year. There were beauti- ful items for sale at each and every booth, helping many with their Christ- mas gift giving list. Thanks to Wheeler Ranch and Feed for pro- riding the hayride for car- olers and to Karl Wheeler for singing the National Anthem. And of course the night would not be com- plete without Santa Claus there to cap off the pa- rade and listen to the children's gift requests at the Mdseum. Chamber of Commerce Jr. Ambassa- dors Nicole Wheeler and Phoenix Brynnan rode in the fire truck with Santa along with coloring con- test winners Iaiah and Jayla with the biggest smiles imaginable as they saw the big crowd cheer- ing for them. Congratulations to the Gridley Area Cham- ber of Commerce board, for one of the best pa- rades ever and thanks to everyone who partici- pated. Alexander Isaaeson, who plead guilty October 14, 2015 to engaging in lewd or lascivious behavior with a min9r, received three years probation November 28, 2016 in Tehama County Superior Court. Probation had beefi recommended because Isaaeson expressed remorse and that he didn't act in a predatory way with the 14-year-old Gerber boy. Isaaeson was tested for risk factor and was a level one, meaning a very low risk for repeat- ing the offense. Letter to Dear Editor, By now, many of us know that Safeway re- cently ousted its Grid- ley pharmacist, David Daddow. Many of us also know David as our per- sonal pharmacist and are familiar with his conge- nial personality and dedi- cated work ethic. The decision to ter- minate David was made by an individual who had only recently assumed responsibility over the Gridley store. This indi- vidual had rarely - if ever vid asked her to provide the reasons for her deci- sion, he didn't get a clear answer - he certainly re- ceived nothing on paper before being escorted from the building. So at this point, we can only speculate on Safeway's reasons for choosing to terminate David. But this is not an unreasonable time to recognize that executives and managers in corpo- rations everywhere face intense pressure to meet ambitious goals. And - observed David working we also recognize that on the job or interacting with customers. This individual repeatedly in- sisted David reduce labor hours at the pharmacy without providing the sometimes, these goals (or the means by which they are achieved) ignore or damage customers and employees in pursuit of a bottom line. In other means to accomplish the words, we are not unfa- reduction. David indicat- miliar with businesses ed that his interactions that try to avoid account- with this manager hadability for the way they left him feeling belittled reach their goals (e.g. and bullied. When Da-Wells Fargo). This is also an op- portunity to acknowledge that age discrimination still taints businesses across the nation. It rep- resents just one area in which businesses forgo fair process when they believe an individual can't or won't defend themselves. Let us guard against business practices that surrender fair treatment in order to achieve busi- ness goals. Let us sup- port those businesses that display integrity, and call attention to the busi- nesses who put on one face for the general public but reveal another when the chips are down. Let us seek out the businesses that temper their finan- cial perspectives with a healthy regard for per- sonal relationships, like the ones David has fos- tered with his customers and coworkers through- out his career.
