Insight: Firefighting Vets / CAVE Women / Kushman by the Bottle


 
 
 
Firefighting Vets Fire season is soon approaching and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or CalFire, is short hundreds of seasonal firefighters after losing more than $30 million in budget cuts last year.  Plus, military veterans returning home to Northern California are having a hard time finding jobs.  But the California Conservation Corps has come up with a solution that creates volunteer firefighters by training military veterans in fire and forestry.  The training and volunteer work are the first steps towards a potential career as a journey-level firefighter.

CAVE Women is an eclectic group of five local musicians who are either attending or have graduated from Sacramento State University.  Their often jazzy, sometimes gypsy, sound draws from the group's collective background in classical, a capella, Brazilian, and African music. CAVE Women will perform in  our studio ahead of their shows on May 10th at Bows and Arrows and May 12th at Nicolas Wray Studios.
