Youth firefighters at a conservation camp took time to help nearly a dozen small Sierra Nevada foothill communities prepare for the holiday season. Pine Grove Youth Conservation Camp inmates have helped craft the small towns’ decorations for decades. For many, they are also crafting pieces of their own rehabilitation. Jackson City Manager Mike Daly said the inmate firefighters are very involved in the community, ranging from marching in the town’s Veterans Day parade to creating 200 holiday decorations adorning the historic Main...

On the brisk morning of Saturday, Dec. 13, a small crowd huddled together at Sunset View Cemetery to honor veterans by remembering their service to our country and placing a wreath on their grave.

It’s hard to imagine how the 1983 American Christmas comedy, “A Christmas Story,” could be improved upon, but Volcano Theatre Company has found a way by bringing the charm of a 1938 childhood Christmas to life in the Cobblestone Theatre.

Vince Murdock directs the Jean Shepherd classic, adapted by Philip Grecian. Murdock’s inner boy must have led the cast of 14, ten of whom were kids. How else could he wrangle that many high-spirited boys and girls to perform with the professionalism that rivals many grown-ups?
