| Filed under

[News brief published and corrected Oct. 10] The Rancho Murieta Association's preliminary 2008 budget took a battering at a budget workshop Wednesday night, with directors and members of the audience challenging aspects of the document as "blue sky."

At the start of the session, the proposed budget called for no dues increase.

The proposed budget goes to the board next week for final action. Read more » about Expanded story: RMA preliminary 2008 budget comes under fire in workshop

Country Club allows jeans in 19th Hole

[Updated Oct. 8] They started out as practical garb for Gold Rush miners. A century later, every self-respecting rebel without a cause wore them. In the ‘60s, the bellbottom version defined the hippie era. Then came designer jeans and respectability.

Now jeans are simply a fact of American life. Even at the Country Club.

Despite the metal plaque at the entrance to the clubhouse that reads, "No blue denim. Thank you," members and their guests are now permitted to wear jeans at the 19th Hole. Read more » about Country Club allows jeans in 19th Hole
