Niles Canyon Railway Speeder Rides

Saturday

 

 

 

Speeder Rides, Niles Canyon Railway
Railroad motor cars, also called "speeders", are the way that track crews used to travel. These days, most railroads don't use speeders. They have converted to "high-railers," or pickup trucks with flanged wheels at each end, to carry their work crews on the rails or the highways. Now, the Niles Canyon Railway presents an opportunity to ride the rails the way that track gangs used to travel. Speeder rides will be offered to the public for a unique railroad experience.
Advance sales only.  Rides are very limited.  Long pants and closed shoes are required.
There will also be two 1927 Sheffield Velocipedes that are the original handpump railcars. These are very rare and are seldom available for public use.
Sponsor: Niles Canyon Railway
Location:  Boarding at the Niles station.
Times:  9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00.
Admission: $25 for adults, $15 for children.

The Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild presents Pops concerts at which the audiences can enjoy light classical symphonic and pops music in a casual setting. After many years at "the Barn" in Livermore, since 2010 the Pops venue has been the ballroom of the Livermore community center.

The Livermore-Amador Symphony provides the music at Pops, with vocal soloists and a few audience sing-alongs. Many in the audience bring something to eat, from snacks to group potluck meals to elaborate dinners. (Beverage sales at Pops support the Symphony.) Members of the audience (and of the orchestra) are encouraged to wear costumes in keeping with the theme. (Usually about half the audience and almost the entire orchestra come in costume.) Each concert has a theme (like 2002's "POPS on Broadway," 1995's "POPS Plays the '40s," or 2003's "POPS—Dreams of California").

It is the winner of Eight Tony Awards out of thirteen nominations, including Best Musical.

Ben Brantley of the New York Times said “this show is as sweet as a show can be without promoting tooth decay. It succeeds in recreating the pleasures of the old-fashioned musical comedy without seeming old-fashioned by taking the infectious hooks and rhythms from period pop and R&B and translating them into the big, bouncy sound that Broadway demands.”

Laura Cunningham - "State of Change" Oct 2
Sunday

2:00pm

Main Library

Author Laura Cunningham will discuss her book State of Change: Forgotten Landscapes of California at 2pm on Sunday, October 2 at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue. There is no charge for this event. Books will be available for sale and signing.
Vernal pools, protected lagoons, grassy hills rich in bunchgrasses and, where the
San Francisco Bay is today, ancient bison and mammoths roaming a vast grassland. Through the use of historical ecology, Laura Cunningham walks through these forgotten landscapes to uncover secrets about the past, explore what our future will hold and experience the ever-changing  landscape of California.

Combining the skill of an accomplished artist with passion for landscapes and training as a naturalist, Cunningham has spent more than two decades poring over historical accounts, paleontology findings, and archaeological data. Traveling with paint box in hand, she tracked the remaining vestiges of semi-pristine landscape like a detective, seeking clues that revealed the California of past centuries. She traveled to other regions as well, to sketch grizzly bears, wolves and other magnificent creatures that are gone from California landscapes. In her studio, Cunningham created paintings of vast landscapes and wildlife from the raw data she collected, her own observations in the wild, and her knowledge of ecological laws and processes. Through A State of Change, readers are given the pure pleasure of wandering through these wondrous and seemingly exotic scenes of Old California and understanding the possibilities for both change and conservation in our present day landscape.

Laura Cunningham, an artist and naturalist, studied paleontology and biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and has worked at various field biology jobs for the California Department of Fish and Game, the U.S. Geological Survey, and other organizations. Laura got getting to know such species as the Owens Valley pupfish, the southern California steelhead trout, the Yosemite toad, and the Panamint alligator lizard. Simultaneously, she has been studying and painting California’s historic and living wildlife, flora, and unique landscapes. She lives with her husband and pet iguanas on a ranch next to Death Valley National Park where she cofounded the group Basin and Range Watch to explore the historical ecology of the desert ecosystems of California and Nevada and to protect them.

The Friends of the Livermore Library have generously underwritten this program as part of the Friends Authors and Arts Series. For additional events, check the library’s website at www.livermorelibrary.net.

Romney Steele, author of Plum Gorgeous: Recipes and Memories from the Orchard and My Nepenthe: Bohemian Tales of Food, Family, and Big Sur will speak at 2pm on Sunday, October 23, 2011 at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue. There is no charge for this event. Books will be available for sale and signing.

In Plum Gorgeous, Romney Steele recognizes the gorgeousness that food—and particularly fruit—can be all on its own. Plum Gorgeous celebrates seasonal fruit, encouraging cooks to use different recipes depending on their local fruit selection. This visual and flavorful work of art is inspired by Romney’s time living in orchards, working in professional kitchens, and by her favorite books, destinations, and chefs. With each turn of the page, Plum Gorgeous celebrates the sensuous and enchanting nature of fruit, as well as the pleasures and joys of the table.

Romney “Nani” Steele is a writer, cook, visual artist, and food stylist. As the granddaughter of Bill and Lolly Fassett, creators of Nepenthe Restaurant, she grew up at the family business and opened Café Kevah, located on the grounds of Nepenthe.

The Friends of the Livermore Library have generously underwritten this program as part of the Friends Authors and Arts Series.
