Lilia Mizer and her sister, Josephine, participated in Lemonade Day for the first time last year. The program offers local kids assistance in running their own business. Participants get a kit that includes a backpack and workbooks for both the youth and their mentor. “My grandma saw the information about Lemonade Day in the paper and thought it might be a good idea.” Lilia explained. Then a local business, Talisman Beads of Eureka, offered to sponsor the Mizers’ stand. The owner, Mary Coor, was a family friend.
“Mary provided bottles so that we could have a zero waste stand,” Lilia explained, “And we had several awesome flavors-regular, cardamom, ginger, lavender, hibiscus.” The girls, who charged $5 a bottle for their product refunded $2 for each returned container.
The sisters called their business the Thirsty Dog Lemonade Stand and donated a third of the profits to the Sequoia Humane Society. The remaining amount was split between the two sisters.

UPDATE 11:20 P.M.: Whitewater lost to DePauw 51-69.
Below is the original post.
Down by 12 points with only 3 minutes left to go, Humboldt State graduate and Southern Humboldt native, Keri Carollo (formerly Keri Rocha) coached her team to victory in yesterday’s NCAA Division III Basketball semi-finals. The game was a nail-biter with a basket made right at the buzzer by one of Carollo’s team to tie the game up and force it into overtime. Then in overtime Carollo’s player made two free throws. But quickly the opposing team, Amherst College, tied it up. Then the same player, Mary Merg, whose basket pushed the game into overtime, floated in another and squeezed Carollo’s UW-Whitewater team into the victory slot. (See here for more details.) Or for video of the highlights see here starting about 1:20.
The National Championship game will be played today. Carollo’s team which has a 2-6 26-6 win loss record faces DePauw which has not lost a game. Details about the game here.
Carollo played for Humboldt State and received her degree from there also. She was born in Southern Humboldt and raised in Miranda where her parents (Gary and Ruthanne Rocha) were teachers.
She can be seen talking about the game here at a little after the 5 minute mark.
On and on it sounds: The mainstream media death knell, forever announcing the end of the family newspaper. But if you know anyone who celebrates its imminent demise, go and throw a copy of Saturday’s Times-Standard in their face. Was the Lost Coast Outpost or any other so-called “blog” on hand to toast the Eureka High Graduating Class of 2012? It was not. They were not.
The Times-Standard was. And that
