"Reverse" Bridal Expo Puts To-Be-Weds in Driver's Seat

Bridal shows can be overwhelming - for the brides and grooms as well as the exhibitors.  Where do you start? Which booths do you visit? How do you get all of the information you need?

Now there is a bridal show that allows brides and grooms to stay in one place while the professionals come to them. The Reverse Bridal Expo is Sunday, November 29, 2015, at The Falls Event Center in Elk Grove.

Bridal Expo Producer Richard Markel came up with the idea when he attended a trade show as a buyer.  The system was set up for him to stay at a table and, through pre-set appoinments, the sellers came by and made their presentations to him.

Officer Brian Law and Officer Juan Gonzalez were killed in a single vehicle crash while responding to an accident call on Highway 99, near Bethel Avenue, in Kingsburg at approximately 6:00 am.

Both officers were riding in the same cruiser responding to the accident, which had been incorrectly reported in the northbound lanes of Highway 99. As they responded to the scene they came upon the accident in the southbound lanes. The patrol car swerved in an attempt to avoid striking the previous collision, struck the guardrail, and overturned. They both suffered fatal injuries in the crash.

The officers had gone through the 27 weeks of training at the CHP Academy together in 2008, and became close friends as well as partners over the past six years.

Officer Gonzalez is survived by his mother, Maria Gonzalez, sister, Sandra Gonzalez.

Officer Law is survived by his wife, Rebecca, with three children - Lauren (age 10), Brandon (age 9), Samantha (age 2).
