Waterfront Weekend ready for return to Vallejo

Someone once said the number of people who show up at a funeral pretty much depends on the weather. Same with outdoor community events. So if there’s one thing Jon Riley doesn’t have to worry about Oct. 2, it’s rain — when was the last time that happened? — or stifling heat. And oh, wasn’t that one Vallejo Waterfront Weekend of 105 degrees that melted the masses a hoot?

This woman dedicated herself to the McEvoy Ranch gardens in Petaluma

Koski-Kent’s tips for gardeners Keep your trees alive during this drought. Trees are expensive and take a long time to replace. They also provide shade, habitat, cooling and absorb carbon dioxide. If you have a vegetable garden, plant crops that can produce for a long season with a similar amount of water such as kale and chard as opposed to lettuce. Deadhead regularly to keep whatever flowers you do have blooming. Consider buying a statue or other garden ornament that gives you joy and doesn't need watering. Remember that, like with previous droughts, the pandemic and fires, we will get through this.

Week 6 prep football capsules

Armijo (1-3) vs. Natomas (2-2) Last week: Armijo had a bye; Natomas lost to Burbank, 24-12 Of note: For good and for bad, Armijo’s last game – a 73-26 loss to Woodland on Sept. 10 – was one for the record books. Dameion Regalado set a school record with 205 receiving yards, amassed on five catches with three resulting in touchdowns. The old record was 198 yards by Pat Roberson against Tokay of Lodi in 1984. He also tied the school record for touchdown catches first set in 1951 by Bob Bergman, who went on to become Paul Farmer’s PE teacher at Sonoma Valley High, against Vacaville, and in 1996 by Deon Barnes against Fairfield. . . . The 73 points given up by the Royals was the fourth-most in school history. . . . Natomas is coming off a 24-12 loss to Burbank, which may bode well for the Royals as Burbank was flattened by Vanden 50-6 on Sept. 3. The Night Hawks managed 89 yards rushing, with no back gaining more than 30, while QB William Vue completed 6 of 20 passes for 85 yards and one interception. Defensively, Natomas held Burbank to 82 yards rushing while the Titans threw for 201 yards and three TDs. Look for the Royals to go to the air early and often.
