Forty years ago, the Snyder family of Paloma Road, in Valley Springs, was approached by a local rock group. Their previous planned field trip fell through, and they had heard that opal and moss agate could be found on the ranch. John and Betty agreed with only a few rules. Clean up after yourselves and close the gates. The rockhounds enjoyed their stay so much that this gathering of friends turned into a yearly event.

For decades, the Snyder’s Valley Springs Pow Wow welcomed rock clubs, families and friends out on the working...

The upcoming Golden Threads Quilt Show, in Sutter Creek, will have approximately 200 quilts on display, including a Crazy Quilt made in 1892 here in Amador.

This historic quilt, discovered by chance at a yard sale in Mokelumne Hill by Sutter Creek resident Debbie O’Neill, was found crumpled up on a table, dusty and dirty, but comprised of colors that immediately appealed to O’Neill. She purchased the quilt for about $10 and took it home to use as a Christmas Tree skirt. At a historic quilt show in Sacramento’s Crocker museum...

About 120 wildlife-loving Tri-County Wildlife Care supporters and Radar, the new Great Horned Owl in training, attended the sixth annual Paws & Claws celebration dinner.

New president, Ron Erhardt, opened by telling everyone that TCWC had taken in more than 500 critters, year to date, and had released over 50 percent. (A good number considering some of the injuries the animals have when brought in.) Attendees were treated to an amazing dinner cooked by Native Sons of the Golden West, Excelsior Parlor #31 and served by Native...
