Hi all,

Hopefully you all have read the obits for Scott in the LA Times and the Sacramento Bee. Of course, Scott would be tickled to know that we all made such a fuss. Plans are being made for a memorial service in Sacramento, and we will be sure to let people know about that as plans solidify.

Also, many have asked what they can do to help. Scott's family and friends have worked to set up a scholarship in his name at Orange Coast Community College, where Scott was a student and developed the passion for fighting for access to higher education.

Questions can be directed to or (714) 412-1939

And finally, in true Scott fashion, he has left behind a bit of a mystery. While we have the ability to update the Nooner's content, we can't seem to figure out how to turn it off. So, there is no way for us to stop it from emailing an update to your inboxes every day. It's a little disconcerting to see that daily update in the wake of Scott's passing, but I also laugh to myself every time I see it. It's just like Scott to build something from the ground up that only he knows how to control. So for now, he lives on, not only in our thoughts, prayers and remembrances, but, fittingly, also in our inboxes.

I have been so touched and overwhelmed with the outpouring of appreciation from Scott's friends, family and readers. He clearly touched a lot of lives, and we all feel his abscence.

Thank you again,
