California Rambling: One Way to originality

It is much easier to take what’s available and popular and use it, rather than to create something personal and new.

Don’t tell that to Ingrid Laurentiis-Wilson, director […]

Local trauma survivor trying to save kids

Pollock Pines resident Michael Misch is talking to kids about distracted driving.
