Now here's something we haven't
heard all that often in California - the state budget may have
extra money. Today on Insight, we'll talk with Capitol Bureau Chief
how much of a surplus the budget might have, where it's coming from
and how it might get spent.
"Listen To Your Mother"
If anyone is looking
for a twist on Mother's Day, we have something for you. We're not
saying you should skip the flowers and the cards and the brunch,
but on Sunday evening at the Crest Theater, there'll be the
one-time-only performance of "Listen to Your Mother,"
a nationwide event
that's in two dozen cities and has local writers, and regular
people taking the stage to read their personal stories about all of
the shades of motherhood. It is also a benefit for the growing
non-profit, 916 Ink
, which gets kids ages 6-18 writing and
telling their own personal stories.
Carolina Chocolate Drops
