On the "Today" show the other morning, Al Roker and Jeannie Schulz agreed it's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since Charles Schulz died in Santa Rosa.
Roker asked Jeannie what comes to mind when she ponders her husband's legacy, which was celebrated Saturday on the 60th anniversary of the strip's first appearance in newspapers.
"It's the love that people have for him," she replied. "People come to the museum every day and they want to hug me, because it's the best they can do."
HE'S 91 YEARS OLD and the temperature was higher than 100. That's why Edmund Engel stood for a bit in the parking lot of the Rincon Valley Safeway and considered the flat, flat tire on his and his wife Lorraine's car.
Two good guys spotted Edmund and offered to help. They broke a sweat and dirtied their hands changing the tire, then declined to accept even a dime.
This will explain the donation to the Redwood Empire Food Bank that will arrive from a couple expressing their gratitude.
GUY HEEDS A SIGN: Also in Rincon Valley is the productive patch of land that Ariel Dillon and her fiance Jeff Russell farm.
Now and again they look up from Redwood Empire Farm to see Guy Fieri drive by on Middle Rincon Road. They love the dude.
