New Plans For Folsom Library
Even though voters turned down a proposed library bond for a new library, supporters of the Folsom library have put together some cost-effective alternatives to adding more space for books and library offices. The new plan looks at moving the library to the current Folsom Fire Department headquarters. The Fire Department is moving in this summer. More is in the Bee.

Folsom Homecoming Queen Now in Iraq
Maria McClure, a 20-year old Folsom High graduate, is now on her way (or already in) to Iraq to support the troops. McClure, a National Guard soldier, is one of the 15% of female troops in the war, a considerable jump since Desert Storm. The 2001 Homecoming Queen is specially trained to drive a Humvee, and may or may not be serving directly in operation Iraqi Freedom. Her studies at Cal Poly have been briefly interrupted to serve in the war. More is in the Bee.
