The fair is sponsored by Soroptimist International of Cottonwood-Anderson, which will donate the proceeds to local charities.
- The Redding Police Department presents its employee of the year and other awards at a ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the city council chambers.
- DVD I Watched on the Dreadmill: “Street Kings,” a recent cop drama with a decent script co-written by James Ellroy. Good cast (Forest Whitaker, Chris Evans, Jay Mohr), but the lead is played by the ever-wooden Keanu Reaves, who appears to be doing a Clint Eastwood impersonation the whole time.
- Rules for Successful Living #47: “Close” may only count in horseshoes and hand grenades, as they say, but with hand grenades, it really, really counts.
A journalist since 1975, Steve Brewer is the author of 16 books, most recently the thriller “Cutthroat.” He moved to Redding from New Mexico in 2003.
