For sale: 180 acres from the great gold nugget hoax of 2010


An invitation to investors by the previous owner of 180 acres of forest land in the small Gold Rush-era community of Washington, California suggested the discovery of a 9-pound gold nugget on the property was just "the tip of the iceberg."

The marketing campaign ultimately collapsed with the revelation of a simple truth: The gold nugget had actually been unearthed in Australia in 1987.

The property is now listed for sale without the promise of incalculable wealth underground.

The great gold nugget hoax of 2010 began in April with property owner James Saunders Grill, using the pseudonym Jim Sanders, describing in detail to the Union Newspaper how he found the nugget on his property.

"If I get a mining operation going, we'd have an industry here," Grill told the reporter.

Paul Martin's Fall Menu is Here

Fall means a change in the weather, in the gardens, and therefore, on your plate. When the weather changes not only does our produce in the stores change, but so do our appetites. Fall means squashes, Brussels sprouts, and the beginning of braised meats. And in our new world of farm-to-table dining, the menus at your favorite restaurants change as well.

I haven't been to Paul Martin's American Grill in years. The main reason is that  I live about 30 miles away from the nearest one in Roseville. Recently I was invited to go and check out their fall menu and I figured it would be a good time to revisit them and to catch up with someone who lives out that way, my ex-husband... Read More
