Flowers Are A Bargain At The Pittsburg Farmers Market

I went opening weekend to the Pittsburg Farmer's Market. I bought cherries and flowers. I'm always amazed at the array of flowers at these markets and the prices this bunch was just $3. Peggy always gets a kick when I bring her home some. If I can light her up for $3 I'm good. Brentwood is also open now.

Eddie Hart "All In One Track Clinic" Helps Kids

World Record Holder Mike Powell helps kids get on right path

Pittsburg's own Eddie Hart, is an Olympic gold medal winner. His ALL IN ONE FOUNDATION helps kids succeed in track & field events. Every year he brings in Olympians and track and field coaches to help east county kids. Pittsburg High School Track & Field coach Aaron Alatorre was there to help and pickup training tips for his team. Mike Powell, above, is no beginner in talking to kids. When he speaks kids listen. I was so pumped after listening to this fellow after 5 minutes I wanted to take a shot at the long jump world record myself. If you know a youngster that needs to get on a better path this could be the answer.
