The Last Laugh: Time for the 2021 Fairfield Fist Bump Awards, aka The Bumpies

in Fairfield 86 views

It’s time for the 2021 Fairfield Fist Bump Awards, affectionately known as “The Bumpies.” They are a tip of the hat or, more accurately, a gentle but deliberate meeting of the knuckles that celebrate certain segments of the Solano County seat.

I have been presenting these annually since their debut in 2013. Well, except for 2018 and 2020, which, for reasons beyond my control that I won’t go into, they were not presented (uh, I forgot).

Margarita López: With great sadness I present this Bumpie posthumously to Margarita, who died last week. She was such a vivacious person and absolutely beautiful. Margarita was one of those people whose beauty was not only measured by the outward favorable amalgam of her parents’ genes, but was also coupled with a radiant inner beauty that bubbled out from her infectious spirit.

FAIRFIELD — Solano County supervisors on Tuesday will consider the 2020 LNU Lightning Complex Fire Recovery Strategic Plan and receive an update on the progress of the recovery.

A staff report to the board states that the purpose of the strategic plan is to provide the county with a blueprint to recover from the devastating effects of the LNU Lightning Complex Fire that occurred in August.

“The recovery plan assigns roles and responsibilities to county agencies and identifies outside agencies who must coordinate in order to complete the recovery process. The recovery plan has been developed during the ongoing recovery process and is evolving as tasks are completed and as new information is received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the California Office of Emergency Services,” the staff report states.
