Two views of 'supermoon' over Murieta


So you knew Rancho Murieta's photographers would be out for this month's "supermoon" — the biggest and brightest moon to rise in our skies since 1948. Oscar Vasquez was out at Lake Calero Sunday night for the beautiful shot above, and Bill Gengler used his vehicle's headlights Monday night to add an impressionistic deer to his moon shot. A full moon this close to Earth won't happen again until Nov. 25, 2034, if you want to put it on your calendar. Click the photos to see larger images.

Warmed by November sunshine...

Pedestrian bridge

A sunny November day in the 70s is something to be savored, and Sunday was just such a day. Murietans were at the parks, playing tennis, hitting the golf courses or buzzing around in their golf carts, many of them passing over the pedestrian bridge. The weather forecast calls for a chance of showers Tuesday and cooler temperatures after that. Click photo for larger image.

To honor the living and remember the dead


It was a beautiful Veterans Day, and the vets taking part in the community's celebration gathered for a photo outside the RMA Building Friday morning. Inside, they swapped service stories, sipped coffee and ate doughnuts. There were several vets from World War II, several from Korea, several from Desert Storm and the majority from Vietnam. A couple of local teens were part of the morning: Olivia Reed recited the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields" and Tori Davis sang "America the Beautiful" and "My Country, 'Tis of Thee." The event continued into the afternoon, when vets were invited to enjoy a hotdog lunch. The Rancho Murieta Caregiver Support Group was the primary sponsor of the morning activities; Summerfest hosted the hotdogs. Click photo for larger image.
