mary gauthier's 'rifles and rosary beads' album born of writing with combat vets


nashville-based musician mary gauthier has been working for more than four years with wounded combat veterans through songwriting with soldiers, a program that offers a forum for members of the military to process their war experiences through music.but the critically acclaimed singer and songwriter thinks most of the coverage of her role in the program gets things backward.“i keep seeing the headline on articles that says something like ‘mary gauthier helping our veterans,’” she said by phone from her nashville home earlier this week. “it’s troubling — and it’s condescending.“whatever i’m doing as a songwriter to help them tell their stories, they’re giving it back to me double, triple, quadruple,” said gauthier (pronounced go-shay). “we’re helping each other in a really lonely world. we

roseville armory controversy: council aims for homes on site


a dispute in roseville over whether to try and save the city’s former national guard armory is nearing an end.against the wishes of those who wanted to preserve the armory for use as a community center, the city council last week signaled its preference to redevelop the site for low-density housing instead.city officials consulted neighbors, getting what they considered a solid response: 87 comments, online or on paper. among those comments, 69 people said they preferred single-family detached homes on the site, while the community center option drew 44 positive responses, community development chief kari collins told the council.but 29 people declared that no institutional use was suitable — a hint of polarization.many in the area wanted the armory preserved partly because “some of our ol
