I’ve been a dog park attendee for 20-plus years, but it’s only in the past few months have I formed some bitter opinions. Keep in mind that the following is about my particular experiences at the dog park; this is not a news article. When my husband and I lived in Richmond, Va., with our […]

Fashion forward: Fermented fabric hits the runway

With names like “Fire Master,” “Earthblossom” and “The Mermaid,” we might be discussing James Bond villains or Disney movies. In fact, these are the names of living, breathing garments that will be worn during Sacramento Fashion Week, thanks to local fermenter and designer Sacha Laurin.

Laurin, a Davis resident, is one of the featured designers for Fashion Week, Feb. 16-22, after having won a competition in September during the Sac Music and Film Festival.

“We had 10 days and a $50 budget to create a design based on individual Edgar Allan Poe poems that were randomly assigned,” Laurin explained.

DHS ski team excited for another win, visit by the principal

Tricky gate placement, icy patches and several falls resulting in “hikes” back up and around missed gates made Monday’s slalom race at Alpine Meadows challenging for the Davis High ski team.
