Today in the Times: Bluegrass and Open Mic

Speaking of independent local news sites, Judy La Russa's now-exclusively online East Valley Times updates almost daily with a great mixture of local event coverage and serious news stories. I used to subscribe to the Times when it published every other week in print, to keep up on happenings in rural areas east of Redding. Now they'll deliver a free newsletter to your inbox.

The Times as of this moment doesn't have an RSS feed, or I'd include them among the news sites listed in the sidebar. So I'll occasionally post a roundup of their stories here.

Today's newsletter leads off with an advance of an Old Time Fiddlers concert coming up on Sunday:
The Old Time Fiddlers will present a free Old Time Fiddle & Bluegrass concert performance on Sunday, November 6, 201 at St. James Lutheran Church, 2500 Shasta View, Redding. The Jamming will start at 1:00 p.m. Additional band to be announced. The concert will then followed by an Open Mic session.
Among the Times' other headlines:

Food and Farm News — Compared to last year, wet October helps reservoir storage
McConnell Foundation gives gift of new lights for iconic bridge
Cattlemens Steakhouse offers veterans a sirloin steak dinner in honor of service
Churn Creek Road closed to replace pole sheared off in traffic collision
Weekly Sheriff’s Log Oct 24-31

Independent news outlets should be supported. If you find one that you like and trust, spread the word.
