BRIEFS: Two hurt in crash on Russell

A three-vehicle crash east of Winters sent two people to the hospital Wednesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Officer Cindy Leal said the chain of events began at 9:10 a.m. on Russell Boulevard at Interstate 505, where 34-year-old Juan Castillo of Fresno failed to notice a Honda Element stopped at a red traffic light and sideswiped the vehicle.

The Element, driven by Davis resident Arvo Schoen, 73, was pushed into the intersection, where it struck the left side of a Mercedes, Leal said.

Both the Mercedes driver, 63-year-old James Lin of Orinda, and his passenger Le Lin, 57, were taken to Sutter Davis Hospital with complaint-of-pain injuries, Leal said. Schoen suffered a bruise inside his lower lip but declined medical treatment. Castillo was not hurt.

Speaker helps embrace diversity

Davis author Sandy Holman will discuss how to teach children to embrace diversity during a program Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road. The program runs from 1 to 3 p.m. and includes free snacks and free child care for young children.

Through the Culture Co-op, Holman has made many presentations to adults and children on the importance of cultural diversity, and she will share strategies Sunday for teaching diversity from birth through high school.

Holman also will have signed copies of her book “We All Have Heritage” available. For more information, contact her at (877) 265-6777 or visit http://www.culterco-op.com.

Photography explored as art

Are you a picture taker or photographer? If you are a photographer, do you consider yourself an artist? Joseph Finkleman, a member of the Davis Photography Club and an artist, will begin a discussion of photography as art at Tuesday’s club meeting at 7 p.m. in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

“Art isn’t so much the artist’s story as it is an invitation to add your story as a viewer to the image,” Finkleman says.

Motekaitis speaks at parent meeting

Davis Parent Nursery School will offer a free parent class open to the public on Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. at 426 W. Eighth St. in Davis.

The pre-kindergarten class will present Koren Motekaitis, a former DPNS parent, a local radio talk show host and a coach. She will talk about coaching kids through sports and life.

Explore Africa at Arboretum

“Storytime Through the Seasons: Expedition to Africa” is the theme of Sunday’s family event from 2 to 4 p.m. at UC Davis Arboretum Headquarters. Visitors will take a safari to Africa with this outdoor reading program, exploring the stories and nature of that continent in the Arboretum’s Acacia Grove. Families will play Mancala and other traditional games, and learn how to make Kufi hats and konte cloth.

The program is free, thanks to a grant from Target, and all ages are welcome. If it rains, the program will move indoors to 146 Environmental Horticulture.

For more information, e-mail arboretumambassadors@gmail.com or visit http://arboretum.ucdavis.edu.
