The Reservoir Goats Are Back!

If you were a bit sad to see the horses leave the neighborhood last month, the goats have arrived just in time to fill the void.  The annual visit from the insatiable eaters has become a bit of an unofficial neighborhood event.

Show Your Portola Pride With A T-Shirt

Almost every time that I’m out and about in the neighborhood with my Portola t-shirt on, a neighbor asks me how they can get their own.  There is never a clear answer as most t-shirt sales tend to be at neighborhood events which are sporadic and not everyone can attend.  To help get more Portola …
