News for the City of Good
Neighbors from an Old Guy
named Norb Huber
Good news! My dear wife and
me became grandparents for the
third time this afternoon at 2:07
p.m. Finn Wulf Cross entered
this crazy world weighing in at
8 lbs. 1 oz. and measuring 20
1/2” tall. It’s good to report that
baby Finn, our youngest daughter, Katie,
father Paul, papa Nobby and nana Linda,
are all doing well. It was tough not being
allowed to visit the little guy in the hospital.
Only the father was allowed in. Now the
fun of family life will begin. Every day is
a blessing to see a child grow. Every life
is a gift from God.
More Good News
I don’t have much to say this week. You
folks have heard it ALL already. Thou shalt
not conduct “in person” worship services,
no café eating inside, no working out at the
gym, no haircuts, no visits to museums, no
trips to the beach, no large family gatherings,
no fun allowed. So, what’s the good
news? First and most importantly, you
can still have a cold one and relax. You
can still play golf. You can still go for a
walk. Life will get you down if you let it.
If you only focus in on the bad news then
it’s easy to get depressed. We all struggle
to stay positive. My son-in-law raised my
spirits the other day. He was out on the
lake and two people had tipped over their
personal watercraft. There were other boat
nearby but no one seemed to want to go
help. Ron, my #1 son-in-law, and his buddy
went over and helped push the capped sized
craft right side up. He didn’t think twice
about helping. After retelling the story to
me, he commented, “isn’t that what life is,
service, helping others?” I thought
about it for a second, and I said
yes, that is really living. When we
stop thinking only about ourselves,
when we give up the “me, myself
and I tunnel vision” and see those
around us, we really begin to live.
It is truly amazing how differently
life looks when we show empathy
and compassion to others. One of
Ron’s goals as a father is to teach
his two kids to be compassionate
young people who care about others. Wow!
That is good news. Forget about what you
can not do for yourself, think of what you
can do for others.
Did you know that there are a total of 62
National Parks in the USA? California has

states where these parks are located:
1.) Mammoth Cave - KY 2.) Lassen
Volcanic - CA 3.) Kenai Fjords - AK 4.)
Saguaro - AZ 5.) Mesa Verde - CO 6.)
Olympic – WA Did you know that the
islands of America Samoa and the Virgin
Islands are considered National Parks that are
own and operated by the US Government?
It was sad to hear about the Mission
San Gabriel being destroyed by fire over
this past weekend. For those of you who
attending fourth grade in California and
built a replica of one of the missions, here
is a little trivia: There were 21 missions
accompanied by military outposts in Alta
California from San Diego to Sonoma,
California. To facilitate travel between them
on horse and foot, the mission settlements
were situated approximately 30 miles apart,
about one day’s journey on horseback, or
three days on foot.
