The band Objects in the Mirror is celebrating its 100th gig together by throwing a party tonight at Cooper’s, 235 Commercial St. in Nevada City.

“It has been great fun playing this last 30 months all around the foothills area and now in Sacramento, too,” said band member Pat Jacobsen. “So, we are going to have a great party at Cooper’s, and we are inviting some special guest artists from our Steely Dan tribute shows and the recent Joni Mitchell tribute shows to come in and join us – sort of three shows in one.”

The music starts at 9:30 p.m. $5 cover. Call 265-0116 for information.

PG&E work Sunday may delay traffic

PG&E crews will be stringing a new power line across Highway 49 near Dorsey Drive Sunday morning, which could delay traffic on the highway for four hours.

Crews will be working in the area from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to replace a section of a 12,000-volt power line that stretches from East Main Street to Sutton Way. California Highway Patrol officers will be on duty to stop traffic if necessary.

Replacement of the overhead line is part of PG&E’s routine maintenance program and will provide increased reliability for customers in the area, according to a spokeswoman.

If it rains Sunday, the work will be done April 10 at the same time.

The Truckee Police Department and the regional narcotic enforcement team searched the Glenshire rental of Kyle James Rytter on March 23 after neighbors reported “possible drug activity” at Rytter’s home, said Truckee police Chief Scott Berry.

Officers found three pounds of packaged marijuana, a scale, “pay-owe” records, a marijuana grow schedule, an SKS assault rifle with more than 400 rounds of ammunition, 49 syringes, suspected steroids, and other illegal drugs, including OxyContin, according to Truckee police.
