While we attempt to delay our own inevitable aging, bonsai experts embrace the opposite as it relates to their miniature trees. Specimens looking old and even ancient with weather-beaten trunks and twisted limbs are prized and valued for their natural artistic beauty.

A free public demonstration at the Mother Lode Bonsai Club on Saturday, April 4 will focus on two essential methods of increasing the illusion of age: jin and shari. The club meeting will begin at 10 a.m. with the demonstration following immediately after by David...

Jackson Rotary distributes dictionaries to all third graders in the county. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch
