2016 San Miguel Christmas Lights Parade
San Miguel Park Construction has begun,
County Parks' plan is to provide a bigger, more usable, park for the citizens of San Miguel. This expanded park will provide a multi-use sports field so youth field sports (soccer, football, etc.) can be played in San Miguel. In addition there will be a bike trail, walking trail, parking lot and an enhanced area highlighting the historical monuments already in the park. They hope to have the expanded park completed and opened in time for summer.
SAN MIGUEL LIBRARY
San Miguel Library will present an informal four-program book/video/discussion series called Pushing the Limits, in partnership with a science partner. Two programs will be in February (Saturdays, Feb. 11 and 25 at 4:30), and two will be in March (Saturdays, Mar. 11 and 25 at 4:30). You can sign up for one or more of the programs. It’s free and registration is required.
Each adult program is organized around a different theme – nature, survival, connection, and knowledge. Each theme provides a context for showing how humans push their own limits every day and the ways in which science is a part of that effort.
The program discussions will be based on a recommended reading of popular fiction or historical nonfiction and the viewing of two short (5-7 minutes) videos.
For each program, the book connects directly to the first video, an interview with the book’s author, who reflects on the subject of the book and touches on the creative process, the subject matter of the book, and the way in which the author used science in writing his/her work.
The second video is what one might call, “real people, real stories, real science,” and provides a look at an individual or family using scientific ideas, principles, or technologies to push limits in their own lives.
Pushing the Limits books for the program series:
T.C. Boyle, When the Killing’s Done Program date: Saturday, Feb. 11, 4:30

Improvements underway at US 101/Wellsona Rd.
- Caltrans will add one luminaire in the northbound direction and one in the southbound direction to bring more light to this location.
- The truck crossing sign on northbound US 101 will be enlarged and include a super high intensity reflective sheeting to increase visibility. A flashing beacon will be placed on top of the sign.
- The truck crossing sign on southbound US 101 will remain in the same location but will receive a flashing beacon at the top of the sign. They will be located 600 feet before the intersection. This is an increase from two to four signs approaching this intersection.
- All of the striping (lane lines/arrows/edge stripes) will be refreshed to a new condition up to two miles in each direction of US 101
- All of this work is expected to be complete in late 2016/early 2017.

He remembers this old train car operated as Chili Car lunch stand and located at W. 13th and Mission (where presently there is a vacant lot).
With the cold weather we've had lately, thought you might also like to see this Snowman photo given to us by Bert. He says they built that snowman in 1931 or 32 close to the park, which, at that time, was between 13th and 14th St on the east side of Mission Street.W. 13th & Mission (presently a vacant lot).
I remember snow in San Miguel in the 50's, but not that much.
