Artesian Market showcases unique talents in town BY DAVE HART FOR THE ISLANDER On Tues, Nov. 21 the City of Avalon hosted the 3rd Artesian Market of the year. The Artesian Market is an opportunity for local Artisans and businesses to show- case their wares on Front Street. The Artesian Market was created to celebrate local craftsmen and promote a festive atmosphere in the center of Avalon. Some of the vendors have had fresh organic fruits and vegetables, roasted coffee, local artwork, hand- made goods and fresh baked breads. The next Artesian Market will be back on Feb. 27. If you are interested in being a vendor please contact Yafet Mengesha ymengesha@cityofava- lon.com or 310-510-0220 ext. 103. Vets Voices From page 7 in action. "I was in the Marines 'Corps in the Pacific area during WWII, and we used dogs. My favorite pal was a Pincher Doberman I named Tiger. We were known as dog-handlers. We were called The K9 Corps. I think there were over 5,000 dogs in our units. I served through part of the Vietnam War." The caller and 1 chatted some more, mostly about war stories and my service time in WWII in Europe as our artillery battalion racked up 565 days of combat time. He was impressed. I failed to get his name or email address. (contact me, if you see this.) This article reminds me about Yoyo my brother's dog, a medi- um-size black retriever. They had been stationed at the Presidio near San Francisco. Yoyo had been an Army rescue dog. When Soula and I lived in Lakewood, Tim was our first- born. One morning as he and I sat on the front steps of our house, Tim decided to try out his two- year-old legs. He walked across the front lawn. It had a gradual slope toward the front sidewalk and Tim nearly reached the side- walk when Yoyo came up between Tim and the sidewalk and Yoyo pushed Tim away from the side- walk by bumping Tim with his "rear end" thus guiding the boy back toward the porch. This is my favorite story about Yoyo and Tim. Bill Thomas is a Veteran of Worm War II, and past commander of VFW Post 4048, and American Legion Post 857. Contact Bill at vvbthomasvets@gmail.com.
