If you have an absentee ballot for the June 8 primary election still sitting on your counter, you need to be getting it back to the Courthouse. They must be returned by 8 p.m., June 8 in order to be counted.
If you would still like to vote by absentee, the time to request one is definitely running out!
Your best option is to stop at the Clerk and Recorder’s office in the courthouse and pick up your ballot. The last opportunity to request an absentee ballot is June 7 before noon. After that deadline, the only absentee ballots that can be issued are those ballots for a voter prevented from voting at the polls as a result of illness or health emergency occurring between 5 p.m. Friday preceding the election and noon on Election Day.
I want to provide food at a public event - Do I need to have a license?
The short answer is YES. And the long answer is:
Food is a very important part of most of our community festivities and by following basic food safety guidelines and common sense, it can be done successfully and profitably.
The very first step, prior to any food service event is to obtain the proper licensure as required by State law. A food service establishment is defined as a place where food or drink is prepared, served, or provided to the public at retail, with or without charge. The term “food service establishment’ does not include vendors of prepackaged, nonperishable foods in their unbroken, original container such as pop or candy bars, or private organizations serving food only to its members.

Special to the I-O by Cindy Habets Peterson
It is difficult not to be inspired, on a daily basis, by San Francisco.
After much time on the road and as semi-permanent houseguests, we have once again marked this West Coast urban center as our permanent address.
Our full-time wandering days behind us for the moment, we are fortunate to call one of the most-visited cities in the world our home. And with the approach of summer vacation season, I was inspired to dedicate my next few articles to locations closer to home.
For the next couple months I’ll be taking a break from countries requiring a passport stamp or a visa to highlight on some of the amazing locations we have right here in the Western United States.
