This weekend’s 11th annual Nevada County Nutcracker ballet is more than just another magical holiday show. With co-producer Santia Enos Kroes and her extended family of cast members and devoted fans leaving after this season, it’s like a swan song farewell to “Mom” and the warmth of a family circle.
A Nevada County judge on Tuesday denied a defense motion to suppress evidence in the case of holistic physician Harvey Bigelsen, setting the matter up for a three-day trial starting Jan. 27.

Pass the truffles, ice cream and cookies, please. It’s (fill in the holiday), after all. No problem, says Barry Friedman of Grass Valley, author of the upcoming book, “I Love Me More Than Sugar.”.

An up-and-coming Nevada County tech startup will be on national TV Thursday night from Denver — but it’s their product you will see, not their faces. No matter what the airplane does or how it moves, GSS’s five-axis gyro-stabilized camera lens will remain steady to a thousandth of a degree — meaning that no movement is detectable to the human eye.
On San Juan Ridge’s Jackass Flats, a gravel road that starts across the intersection from where James Berardi now sits, a moon-like expanse of jagged, exposed rock shrouds the view on one side, lasting for more than a mile. As far as Berardi, superintendent of Twin Ridges Elementary School District and principal of Grizzly Hill School, is concerned, the rocky acreage might as well be the second door of doom.
Nevada County Superior Court Judge Sean Dowling denied a petition late Friday from Measure S backers to stop distribution of ballots for the Nov. 4 elections, saying it was too late to have them reprinted without significantly disrupting the election process. “Ballots have already gone out and some have been voted and returned,” Dowling said, referring to 330 overseas and military ballots sent out before Sept. 20.
