When American League club presidents voted to nix champagne for post-season clubhouse celebrations, the pennant-winning Oakland A's needed a palatable substitute. They didn't have to look far. It was Martinelli's Gold Medal Sparkling Cider to the rescue. Made since the 1920s in Watsonville, about 120 miles south of Oakland, the bubbly pure apple juice in the green champagne bottle has found its way onto many a Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinner table.

The editorial in the Watsonville Register-Pajaronian offered local voters some blunt advice: "Shield your eyes," it said, "because the City Council is preparing to spit in your face."

When speakers threatened to boycott local businesses if fluoridation goes through, a council member told them to jump off the parking-garage roof.
