09/29/2017 - Local Film "Common Ground" Nominated For Numerous Awards
West Point, CA...When filmmaker and award-winning writer, Lisa Michelle, of West Point, decided to bring her screenplay, Common Ground, to life, she knew that Calaveras County was the perfect location. The rural atmosphere and the children who reside in West Point, Wilseyville, and Rail Road Flat represented the authenticity in the story that Michelle wanted to tell. The supporting characters and extras were cast entirely from Calaveras County residents.

The multiple award-winning screenplay offers insight into the increasing hostilities and bullying in our schools through the perspective of the film's main character, Jeremy, played by Gabrielle Hale. Hale has been nominated for several awards for his portrayal of the tormented second-grader.

“Common Ground suggests audiences be conscious of their preconceived notions based on what someone looks like or the clothes they wear. We all do it–not just kids,” says Pat Russell, one of the film's producers.

According to, 77% of students experience bullying in some form: mental, verbal, or physical. Every seven minutes, a child gets bullied and the after effects can last a lifetime. When Common Ground's film festival circuit concludes, Michelle plans to design an interactive program that parents, teachers and group leaders can use to educate children about bullying.

“Children model what they see. We need to support each other in making bullying an unacceptable behavior,” says Laurie Kubiac, a retired Amador County school teacher.

Common Ground will be showcased in the 2017 Sutter Creek International Film Festival shorts program and is nominated for Best Short Film. Michelle is up for several awards including Best Director.

“Everyone involved in this project was passionate about it. The talent and realism the kids brought to the film was impressive considering none of them had ever acted before they had a camera in their face. I hope that our community will support their hard work by filling the seats of the theater,” says Michelle.

Common Ground will screen at the Sutter Creek Theater in the Shorts Program at 1:30 pm on September 29th. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the box office. Get tickets early as seating is limited.

10/07/2017 - Railtown 1897 Celebrates Autumn With Special Apple Harvest Activities on October 7
Jamestown, CA...California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation will host the 3rd Annual Apple Harvest Day on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at Railtown 1897 SHP. Apple Harvest Day celebrates the history of apple production in Tuolumne County – which dates back to the early days of the gold rush – and the Sierra Railway’s part in both promoting apple cultivation and transporting the produce and products. The special event will include interpretive displays, a slide presentation on the history of Tuolumne County apples, crafts and games for kids, a free booklet on fun apple facts and trivia plus a heritage apple quiz with locally grown apples as prizes.

On his first visit to Tuolumne County, Thomas Bullock – one of the Sierra Railway founders – saw the potential for large scale apple production in the area’s volcanic soils, mild climate and rolling topography. Through the years, the Sierra Railway continuously promoted the growth of the apple industry through advertising, informative booklets on successful cultivation, and bonuses and incentives for those planting new orchards of ten acres or more. At the height of apple production, before World War II, apple orchards blanketed the county foothills and Tuolumne County apples were in great demand throughout the state and beyond.

The special apple harvest activities at Railtown 1897 SHP are free with regular Park admission: $5 for adults; $3 for youths ages 6-17; and free for children ages 5 and under. Also, steam train rides behind the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3® are available that day at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. and cost $15 for adults; $10 for youths ages 6-17; and are free for children ages 5 and under (train ride tickets include Park admission). 

For more information about the special apple harvest activities or Railtown 1897 SHP in general, please call 209-984-3953 or visit
