Joyce Woodson wrote "Sprinklers of Salinas" as an ode to her rural past--in California. "Just as a lot of country singers sing about the South, I like to sing about California," she said. "The western country is just as charming and worthy of writing about. I'm representing a scope of people who grew up in rural California." Woodson's emotion-packed tunes--she accompanies herself on guitar--usually focus on her feelings about her beloved West.

Two of the Plankton Brothers were late, and Mark Holland, who was supposed to go on second, didn't show up at all. Other than that, the 338th Hoot Night at the Old Time Cafe--a musical free-for-all that has been a Tuesday night tradition since the cafe opened nearly seven years ago--was just like the other 337. Nine different solo artists, duos and bands were given 15 minutes each to perform a potpourri of folk, blues and country standards and originals.

Abernathy--the 40-year-old man authorities say used a collection of swords, shears and knives to decapitate his dog--Orange County prosecutors said they intended to pursue the matter as a three-strikes case.

Three years ago this month, Island Records released the debut album by Robert Vaughn and the Shadows. Despite great reviews in Billboard and other prominent national music magazines, "Love and War" was a commercial dud, a fate singer-guitarist Vaughn attributes to a lack of promotion on Island's part. Less than a year later, the Point Loma rock 'n' rollers had severed ties with Island and were once again free agents.
