Nineteen-year old Jesus Hernandez leads a “hot-shot” firefighting crew that saves lives, forests and homes in California and beyond, creates fire lines to avert raging fires, and clears Sutter and Jackson creeks of debris to prevent flooding of homes and businesses. This savior from impending disasters, who puts his life on the line most days during fire season and aspires to become a firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service, is serving time here in Amador County for a robbery he committed in Stockton.

Hernandez is among 69...

Winter turns to spring, daylight is getting longer and the songbirds are starting to bond in pairs and begin their nesting season. We reap the benefits of all this by being able to listen to all the sounds and songs of these wonderful songbirds. They are some of the most beautiful sounds in nature.

Most songbirds are migratory birds, traveling thousands of miles back and forth to their breeding grounds. It is estimated that more than 85% of songbirds perish during this migration. When these birds come home to nest (March to...

The Jankeviciute family with three home-schooled girls moved from Lithuania to Amador City last January. Their father is taking some physical therapy courses at Sac State but as the family wanted a quieter, rural place to live, they began searching for living arrangements out of Sacramento.

As Providence had it, they were thrilled to find a cute little house in Amador City. They quickly fell in love with the friendly, peaceful town. Having been in Wyoming for the first part of the winter with snow, wind and -30 degree weather,...

As a young boy, my grandmother would tell me of her early childhood in Amador County. She was six years old when her father, Domenico Barbagelata, was killed in a mining accident. She gave me some hints as to where he was buried. She said that he was buried in a new Catholic cemetery somewhere in the county.

When we moved to Pioneer, in 1993, we started our quest to find the grave. Off and on, we looked at records and old newspapers, to no avail.

Then, by chance, I thought of the Catholic Cemetery in Sutter Creek. I went online...
