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. It’s particularly ambitious to do so in theater, where well-known plays and musicals are likely to succeed, whereas original work more often leads to frustration and rejection. 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. The fact that he is talking at all is a miracle of sorts because Misch was involved in a horrific car crash in 2007 that left one person dead and himself confined to a wheelchair with brain and motor function injuries. The accident […]

Murder trial begins

Joanne Witt, a 47-year-old single mother, was stabbed to death in her own El Dorado Hills home on the evening of June 11, 2009. That much is certain. Details of the gruesome killing, though, differ, depending on who’s talking. Opening statements in the murder trial of Steven Paul Colver were delivered Tuesday morning inside of […]

Crosscountry hiker promotes gay rights amendments

Richard Noble was bullied as a kid in Danville. “Kids in school spit on me, pushed me, called me names, kicked my books.” Thirty years ago being gay meant harassment in high school, risking the disapproval of family and being cautious about who to trust. Things have changed, but maybe not enough. After the suicides […]
