Reporters’ Notebook

OLAF FUB SEZ: According to California Gov. Jerry Brown, born on this date in 1938, “The reason that everybody likes planning is that nobody has to do anything.”


Easter Basket Wish

A rainbow of jelly bean,

Yellow, red and green,

Chocolate rabbits, dyed eggs,

More than you’ve ever seen.

Little yellow chicks,

Marshmallow yummy,

Springtime treats

To fill your tummy.

When it’s delivery time

For the Easter Bunny,

My fondest wish

Is it will be hot and sunny!

– Joyce L. Wilson
