Senate approves motor voter act

Monday, July 13, 2015 — Legislation sponsored by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to modernize California’s motor voter registration system was approved by the State Senate Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee recently.

AB 1461 is jointly authored by Assemblymembers Lorena Gonzalez, Luis Alejo and Kevin McCarty. The proposed law will now be considered by the State Senate Transportation and Housing Committee.

Susanville’s Bluegrass Festival showcases America’s music

Sunday, July 12, 2015 — It all began long, long ago with the ancient English, Irish and Scottish music emigrants brought with them to a new land in America before and after the revolution they fought that set us free. Over the centuries that old music brewed and steeped with other influences in the hills of Appalachia and gradually took on a distinctive America flavor. While the old-timey bands favor everyone in playing the melody together in unison, a new group of musicians started arranging the songs so the individual instruments could stand in the spotlight with their own solos, and what do you know, before long a whole new music was born in the last century — bluegrass — named for the type of grass that grows wild in the hills of Kentucky.
    Over the years, new branches sprouted on the bluegrass tree, adding a variety of differing approaches to the music. Last week, Susanville celebrated that high lonesome sound with a festival that brought some of bluegrass’ best musicians to town to perform and share their skills with  locals and visitors alike.
