05/05/2018 - Help Fine Things Celebrate Their 20th Birthday on May 5th
Arnold, CA...Time to Celebrate!! Fine-Things will be 20 years old in May and we want you to help us celebrated like it's 1998! Saturday, May 5th from 10am to 6pm. Join us for morning mimosas's & afternoon BBQ, beer, wine, prizes, raffles & party!!


Where it all began

With no business experience or background in retail, we decided to quit our real jobs and open a gift shop. A well meaning someone advised us to meet with a business advisor who in turn suggested we put together a business plan. After the meeting, we agreed that coming up with a plan would be boring and thought it would be more fun to just start texturing and painting our new space and buying cool stuff to put in it. How hard could it be? With the help of our husbands (one was just a boyfriend at the time) we were ready to open our doors. We still remember our first customer! A lot has changed since that Spring day so many years ago, but one thing has not changed, and that is our friendship. In your face people who said we could kiss our friendship goodbye! We have met so many wonderful people over the years that have supported our business that we now call friends. Together we have experienced marriages, births, deaths, remodels, leaky roofs, wine, menopause, reading glasses and everything that​ goes along with living life and will continue to do so as long as you keep liking our Fine-Things!

04/19/2018 - Bret Harte Drama Proudly Presents "The Addams Family Musical"!
Angels Camp, CA..."The Addams Family" features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family, a man her parents have never met. And if that weren't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he has never done before: keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's normal boyfriend and his parents.

04/26/2018 - Calaveras High School Drama will be Presenting "Cinderella" April 26-29
San Andreas, CA...Calaveras High School Drama is delighted to present Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella," the first full-length musical to take the stage at the Calaveras Performing Arts Center in over three years. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Jillian Zahniser appears as the title character, Jared Bisbikis is Prince Topher, Madalyn Myers is Crazy Marie, Brooke Wooldridge is Madame, Jacob Young is Sebastian, Madeleine Hedger is Charlotte, Amaya Halepota is Gabrielle, Jordan Hoyopatubbi is Jean-Michel, and Colton Minehart is Lord Pinkleton. The ensemble includes Anthony Barci, Macy Liotta, Talina Landry, Samantha Leach, Ramon Marquez, Kathryn Frazier, Cleo Osgood, Kyra Allemand, Timothy Kelly, Marco Ortega, and Irene Melendez. Ann Mazzaferro directs, with Mason Anderson as Stage Manager and Cyndie Klorer as Technical Director.



Angela Allured conducts and serves as music director, with Marge Biagi Castro on piano and an orchestra that includes Kyle Barry, Ryan Hache, Michael Rourke, Zack Zahniser, Andrew Wydner, Mateo Alliende, Dean Keahey, Elizabeth Enderlein, Sophia Schlenz, Muriel Strange, Jack Tafoya, Giovanni Airola, Dylan Meidinger, Nicole Alfred, and Wyatt Ames.

Tickets are available at the box office one hour prior to the start of the show, or can be purchased online at chscinderella.bpt.me. The cost is $12 for adults, $9 for seniors over the age of 55, $7 for all active military members or veterans, and $5 for children ages 10 and under. Children under age 2 are free. For more information or to make reservations, please contact Ann Mazzaferro at amazzaferro@custudents.net, or at 754-1811, ext. 5213.
04/21/2018 - Celebrate Spring Aboard Railtown 1897’s Popular & Fun Wildflower Train
Jamestown, CA...Tickets on Sale Now for Two Weekends Only: April 21, 22, 28 & 29. With spring in full bloom, California State Parks, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park and the California State Railroad Museum Foundation are proud to provide guests with a unique opportunity to experience spring wildflowers from aboard a train. While the Park is open daily, special Wildflower Train Rides are available on two weekends – April 21, 22, 28 & 29 – and depart from the Depot promptly at 3 p.m. Prior to boarding the train, passengers will have the opportunity to learn about the wildflowers of California’s Sierra Nevada foothills with an informative naturalist presentation at 2:30 p.m.


Railtown 1897 SHP’s popular Wildflower Trains feature naturalists and Interpretive Park Rangers from the nearby Bureau of Reclamation’s New Melones Lake along with interpretive staff from Railtown 1897 SHP, answering questions and pointing out flower groupings along the way. Wildflower Trains take guests on a six-mile, one-hour roundtrip ride through the scenic landscapes of California’s Gold Country. While the abundance of wildflower viewing is dependent on annual rainfall and weather conditions, trains encounter meadows and rolling hills, with such local flora as “meadowfoam,” “goldfields” and other colorful flowers typically in bloom. Train ride guests receive a checklist, wildflower booklet and poppyseed packet, and more. Plus, guests have the opportunity to participate in a fun, wildflower-related raffle.

Wildflower or excursion train ride tickets cost $20 for adults, $14 for youth ages 6-17 and children five and under ride free. With limited open air seating available, train ride tickets are available online at www.railtown1897.org and at the ticket window beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the ride (based on availability). Tickets include Park admission, capacity is limited, and advance reservations are suggested.

In addition to the special Wildflower Trains in the afternoon, Railtown 1897’s regular excursion trains are operating on these four dates with departures at 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 p.m. Regular weekend excursion ride tickets are available online or at the Depot Store, on a first-come, first-served basis. All regular weekend excursion train ride tickets include Park admission and cost $15 for adults, $10 for youth ages 6-17 and are free for children five and under.

04/28/2018 - Can You Handle The Mud? The 2018 Stop Drop & Mud 5k is April 28th
Mountain Ranch, CA...Can You Handle The Mud? The 2018 Stop Drop & Mud 5k is April 28th! What is the Stop, Drop & Mud? We are proud to be bringing a mud run to Mountain Ranch again this year. For our 2nd Annual Central Fire Mud Run we are planning approximately 16 obstacles along the route that will range from fire fighter skills to strength and endurance tests. Participants will start and finish at the Mountain Ranch Park in the heart of Mountain Ranch. All participants will receive a 2018 Stop, Drop & Mud T-shirt.


Participant are welcome to walk or run the course. All obstacles are designed to be challenging but are accomplishable by people of all ages and abilities.
Obstacle Course

Obstacle course races have become one of the most popular events in the running world in the last five years. There are races out there that have you run through mud, bounce down slides or even get splattered with paint. We wanted there to be more of a firefighter theme to this run. The Stop, Drop & Mud Firefighter Challenge has several firefighter themed obstacles that give you a glance of the live of a firefighter. You will battle through 16 different obstacles that will challenge your strength, stamina and endurance.

Runners will run the race in a wave format beginning at 10:00 a.m. and every 30 minutes thereafter. This race is open to anyone age 11 and up.

Kids 1 Mile Mud Run

This year we are adding an additional Kids 1 mile Mud Run for kids under 10 years old. The kids run will be in/around the Park in Mountain Ranch and will include at least one mud pit. All obstacles for the kids will be the full size adult obstacles to challenge the kids in strength and endurance.

Why run it?

The Stop, Drop & Mud is hosted by the Central Calaveras Firefighters Association. When you run in some of the larger obstacle races you are supporting a company that is hosting the race and then donate a very small percentage of the funds to some charity. Our race is different. Every single aspect of the race is planned, constructed and organized by our Volunteer Firefighters and Association members. Countless hours are spent to get this race ready for our participants.

Financially every single dollar that is raised goes directly to supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue Protection District. It is with fundraisers like this that allow the Association to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.

When you register for the Stop, Drop & Mud you are directly supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue. With this in mind we want to say thank you to everyone who has presently signed up and to those considering signing up!

Where does my race registration fee go?

All registration fees and sponsorships will go directly to purchase new test equipment for Central Calaveras Fire District new SCBA’s (self-contained breathing apparatus). In 2017 Central Fire purchased new SCBA equipment thanks to our inaugural mud run. Annual testing is required for Department personnel. It is fundraising events like the Stop, Drop & Mud 5K along with grants that allow us to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.

04/14/2018 - Hoe-down! Whiskerino Dinner Dance is April 14th
Angels Camp, CA....(Frogtown, USA)The Friends of the Calaveras County Fair and the Junior Livestock Committee are hosting a Hoe-down, Show-down. The Whiskerino Dinner Dance is planned for April 14. The dinner dance will be the official kick-off event leading up to the Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee May 17-20. The Whiskerino has a fine historic tradition in Calaveras County. Although the Whiskerino dates back to the 1940s it was revitalized in the 1950's and held for the next forty years. In 1955 Bob Petithome, Angels Camp resident, won the award for best full beard. He says the best part of the event was seeing "all the slick chins" try to grow beards. The event marked the month long Jubilee. Originally held at the Gun Club adjacent to the Fairgrounds, men and women donned their best gold rush attire. However the biggest draw was the actual whisker competitions.





In recent years the Friends of the Fair has rejuvenated the annual event. Partnering with the Junior Livestock Committee funds are raised to make improvements to the Fairgrounds and support the livestock program.

It it the Fair's kickoff event. The food is great, catered by Lightening Q Catering, Plan B is the band, bounce house for the kids and the competitions are crazy fun!
04/17/2018 - Columbia College's Symphony of the Sierra on April 17th
Columbia, CA...The Symphony of the Sierra 2018 Spring Concert will be held at Columbia College, Dogwood Forum, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17, 2018. The repertoire provides a wonderful introduction to orchestral music for children, while being complex enough to satisfy the seasoned classical ear.


The orchestra is excited to be performing the fourth movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, Gershwin’s American in Paris, Gounod’s Judex from Mors et Vita, and Williams’s English Folk Song Suite.

The symphony is delighted to introduce the Symphony of the Sierra Beginning Strings (a Community Education course) — performing in their first concert. This is a free event open to the public and all are welcome.
