Summer began yesterday late morning meaning today is the first "full" day of summer. Won't feel like it, though, as low pressure drifts north and a stiff easterly wind brings us a chilly mostly cloudy day with highs a good 15+ below normal at only about 67. Rain showers will be around at any time accumulating a general quarter to half inch.



Health & Wellness Services is saddened to share Yoko Sugimoto Cortez, mother of Frances Cortez Funk, director of Health Promotion and Alcohol & Other Drug Services, passed away at home on Thursday, June 15 at the age of 91. She was best known for opening her home for delicious meals from scratch and most proud of immigrating to the United States. Details on the services can be found here. In her honor, the family asks that you cook a fantastic meal to share with family and friends, take time to pause, enjoy peace and live your best adventurous life.
