Tickets prices begin at $1,000 for another fundraiser today, a shoe-shine event to raise money for Assemblyman Das Williams. But then, he's working for the money - he says he'll shine some himself.
CASTING CALL: If you're out and about at 1:30 p.m., you can catch a fly-casting competition organized by Cal Trout and Trout Unlimited.

Tom Harman, Assemblyman Wes Chesbro, Sen. Bob Huff, Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, Sen. Tom Berryhill, and Assemblyman Martin Garrick. Alert readers will note that it's a bipartisan affair.
