Arena Plan: Convergence A citizens' committee is reviewing proposals for a new arena in Sacramento. On the next Insight, we continue our series on all four plans being considered by the Sacramento First Task Force. Developer Gerry Kamilos explains how his new Convergence plan is different from the one that collapsed last year.

Preventing Gun Violence You'll meet a Nevada County couple whose daughter was killed by a mentally ill man in a mass shooting in January 2001, almost 10 years to the day before the Tucson shooting. They are leaders in the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

"Scrappers" A documentary named one of the 10 best of 2010 by Roger Ebert is gettting screened in Sacramento next weekend. "Scrappers" follows two Chicago families who make ends meet using brains, brawn, and battered pickup trucks. The film questions popular notions of poverty, race relations, and recycling and examines dreams of personal self-sufficiency and urban sustainability.

Cowboy Singer Cowboy singer-songwriter Adrian lives on a ranch in Williams and plays next weekend at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada. You'll meet her and hear her perform live in our studios.
