LAKE COUNTY – The Danny Wilds Memorial Scholarship was created in the memory of Daniel Len Wilds. Danny was active in his community and maintained a growing interest in agriculture and education. Danny was a member of the Big Valley 4-H club for eight years. This scholarship was established as a tribute to Danny.

Since then, many individuals and organizations have contributed to this scholarship as a way of remembering their loved ones’ special days and in support of Lake County’s youth. These contributions have enabled this educational scholarship to provide monetary assistance to Lake County schools and community youth for 39 continuous years.

In recognition of Danny’s enthusiasm for the 4-H program, since 1969 a perpetual trophy has been awarded to an outstanding 4-H exhibitor at the Lake County Fair. The award is based on outstanding sportsmanship, attitude, cooperation, quality and appearance of exhibits, and overall participation in fair activities.

In addition, each year 4-H Summer Camp scholarships are awarded to Lake County 4-H members in needs of financial assistance to attend 4-H summer camp. The 4-H members have the opportunity to spend five days immersed in an outdoor educational program, while having a ton of fun.

The Wilds family is proud to offer this opportunity and thank the Lake County community for their continued support of this scholarship.

Please, send contributions to the Danny Wilds Memorial Scholarship c/o Glenn and Gloria Wilds, 5255 Highland Springs Road, Lakeport, CA 95453. If it is in memory of a loved one, a card of recognition will be sent to the family as stated per your instructions.

The Wilds family thanks the community for its support and contribution to this scholarship.


CLEARLAKE – The fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was marked Wednesday night by a vigil in front of Wal-Mart in Clearlake.

Approximately 50 people, including members of Lake County Peace Action and other community members, gathered with signs, candles, and American flags to commemorate the losses the war has caused, and to express hope for peace in the foreseeable future.

A few in attendance remembered standing in the same location in March 2003, when only three or four would stand in what was at the time lonely opposition to the war. They recalled hearing a lot of discouraging and hostile comments in those days, in contrast to the largely supportive responses from passersby now.

But they also expressed sadness that after such a long time the war continues to drag on. “Faith and hope” are the keys, said one woman holding a sign that read “Health Care, not Warfare.”
