Loomis filmmaker honored at film industry mixer

PLACERVILLE, CA - He has been associated with well over a hundred movies either as a stunt man, stunt co-ordinator, actor, second unit director or director.

It's an impressive list that includes such titles as Terminator 2, Against All Odds, Independence DaySpeed, Spider-man and this year's Best Picture at the Academy Awards, The Artist.

Friday night, Gary Davis, who grew up in Loomis, was honored at the annual El Dorado Lake Tahoe Film and Media Office annual "I Love Film" Film Industry Mixer in Placerville. He became the first inductee into the California Film Foundation's Hall of Fame for his years of contribution to the film community as an artist, a teacher and a role model.

Gary didn't start out seeking a career in Hollywood. His passion was motorcycles and although an early idol was Evel Knievel, the two became rivals with Gary jumping 21 cars in 1972 to break Knievel's record.

Theft puts Oakmont HS's musical in jeopardy

ROSEVILLE, CA - Over the weekend, someone broke into the drama classroom at Oakmont High School.

The thief then broke into the drama teacher's office and took the nearly $3,000 the students had raised for their big spring musical.

"It was heartbreaking," Drama teacher Samantha Howard sad. "Especially because it is student funded, they worked so hard to earn the money."

Students had raised the money to put on Little Shop of Horrors by staging the show The Language Archive, which was student directed and student produced.

Ryan Murphy, the director of The Language Archive, said the news was numbing.

"It was hard to accept the reality it was gone and we can't afford to do our musical anymore," Murphy said.

Howard felt the best thing to do in the circumstances was to call off the production.

"But the kids have sort of banded together and said 'No, we can do this,'" Howard said.
