Happy September!

If you’re looking for a fresh start — as I am — this is a good time,

Labor Day weekend this year has a relaxing feel — less hectic, less frenetic than the summer holidays have been.

More time for healing, organizing, purging and renewal.

While you’re catching up on R & R, this issue of Prospector offers some great ideas for enjoying books, music and art.

Just to name a few:

— Joe Harrington’s new true crime book “An Execution’s Odyssey: Dissecting the Death Penalty,” is out in hardcover from Pegasus Books (see page 9).

— Some 20 Art Works Gallery artists are exhibiting at The Center for The Arts (see page 3).

— Tickets are on sale for Nevada City Film Festival, which opens Thursday (see page 8).

_ Six bands play at a free gospel concert, “Praise in the Mountains,” Saturday at Western Gateway Park (see page 10).

May you regroup, renew and be revitalized this Labor Day weekend.

And may this issue of Prospector inspire you to reveal and unfold the grand plan for a great life already in place within.
