The Colusa County Arts Council has a display room filled with a wide variety of art — from goulache paintings to sculptures to pen-and-pencil caricatures.
Each of those works belongs to Marysville artist Max Komissarchik — who is the Colusa County Arts Council's featured artist for March.
"This is all his work. I thin
Even today, when Dr. Seuss speaks, people listen.
Sunday would have marked the 110th birthday of Theodor Geisel — a man better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. On Monday, schools, classes and teachers across the U.S. — including some in Colusa County — celebrated the birthday of one of the most renowned American authors
It was billed as the "last hurrah" for Colusa Theatre, but thanks to a turnout that far exceeded promoters' expectations, it may have in fact been a send-off for the theater's out-dated film projectors.
On Saturday, owner Mike Wilkinson said he still needed to raise about $18,000 to make the switch to a digital projector. After just two
The North Valley California Deer Association dinner packed the main exhibit building at the Colusa County Fairgrounds with about 400 people on Saturday. For one father and son, the dinner was a much-needed change of fortune.

The last time the Sun-Herald checked in with Michael Cox — otherwise known as "The Bird Whisperer" — reporter Susan Meeker introduced him as a fresh face with a big heart — the new guy at Century Ranch in Stonyford.
His story is fairly well known at this point, and for good reason.
It was not quite a riotous start at the Colusa County Farm Show on Tuesday.
When the gates officially opened at 9 a.m., things were quiet. Vendors such as Andrew Robinson with Orchard Machinery Corporation of Yuba City were forced to wait patiently for the crowd to arrive.
"It's a little slow so far," Robinson said at around 9:15
For two weeks, the unmistakable smell of well-aged books permeated the old Wells Fargo building in Maxwell, as volunteers from the Sacramento Valley Museum and the Colusa County Historical Records Society dug through 19 gargantuan boxes to clean and catalog record books from as far back as the mid-1800s.

"This group has tired lips but willing hearts. They have come a long w
Low reservoir levels, scant precipitation and a nearly nonexistent snowpack have California worrying about water as this historically dry water year continues into the middle of January.
The state's agricultural industry will be hit hard if the water situation fails to improve, but exactly how severe the impact will be remains uncertain.
When the Dole Packaged Foods float won the Sweepstakes Trophy in the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's — the most prestigious honor bestowed upon the parade's entries — it marked the fourth time in as many years that it did so.
It also marked the fourth year that Philip Rice — who was born and raised in Colusa an
With California fresh out of the driest calendar year in the state's recorded history, Colusa County cattle ranchers in particular are already feeling the effects of the water shortage.
With range severely depleted due to the lack of rain, many cattlemen have had to resort to purchasing feed to keep their herds fed — a measure whic
Students, parents and the Colusa community came together on Thursday night for the second annual Colusa High School Winterfest.
Attendees walked through a gingerbread house built by the Art Club and through a hallway illuminated by blue lights and adorned with garland and faux snow, making their way to the main event in the quad.
It was a small crowd in the early afternoon when vendors first opened their booth for the third annual Downtown Holiday Stroll in Williams on Saturday.

When Colusa High School sophomores Cole Schreiner, Jared Huff and Garrett Hamilton asked Camie Kaelin to be their mentor for their winter community service project through the Environmental Science Academy, they probably did not know what they were getting into.
"A lot of kids want to go out and mow lawns for people. I encouraged them to
Window decorations are going up. Tractors are getting holiday makeovers. Portable LED displays are up and warning motorists that Colusa's main thoroughfare will be closed to traffic this Friday.
And if that fails to give it away, a banner advertising the event is stretched across the wall in front of Colusa City Fire Department.
Participants from Shasta to the Bay Area found their way to Colusa County on Sunday as 249 registered cars — along with a few that snuck in — lined the streets of downtown Arbuckle for the 11th annual Arbuckle Car Show and Depot Birthday Barbecue.
In addition to the show, there were 20 vendor booths offering food, clothing an
The weather was as advertised for the duck hunting opener on Saturday, as hunters around Colusa County were met with temperatures over 80 degrees and sunny skies.
Duck hunters are usually outfitted in waterproof jackets, neoprene waders and a couple of pairs of wool socks.
Last weekend, they would have probably been better off in
The Country Music Association named Lizzie Sider the artist to watch in 2013, but this week in Northern California, the 15-year-old country singer caught the attention of thousands of elementary school students who had the opportunity to hear her anti-bullying message and music.
Sider performed for Woodson Elementary and Rancho Tehama st
If the level of participation in its first Harvest Festival is any indication of the event's future, Saturday's gathering of vendors and participants bodes well for Colusa.
Event organizer Stephanie Ponciano originally planned to have more than 20 vendors, but that estimate proved to be conservative. A total of 42 vendors — not inc
A larger-than-expected crowd filtered in and out of the Colusa fire station on Saturday for the Colusa Fire Department's 140th anniversary celebration.
Although no official count was taken, firefighters estimated that hundreds of community members made their way to the station to join the department in their celebration of nearly a centu
