Huffington Post - over 3 years
When Billy Harvey was 19, living in Texas, playing a mostly self-taught guitar for five years, he formally set off on his first artistic life journey because, "My body was telling me to move to California." Billy found a vehicle he thought could handle the trip and made the owner an offer she couldn't refuse. One used Yankee dollar. No Mafia consigliore, horse's heads or hoofs were involved. The seller happened to be Billy's mom. Billy not only got to Los Angeles in Mom's van, he lived in it for several years with his girlfriend, who was not happy with their habitat.

Cache Creek: Where cooperation flows for nature, agriculture, recreation
The Sacramento Bee - over 3 years
A bald eagle in a pine tree makes a strong symbol for a thriving wilderness. On a recent day, two resident bald eagles occupied nests above Cache Creek while a third eagle soared high above the river canyon on broad wings. The commercial rafting run on Cache Creek includes mild Class II rapids like this one, great for beginning paddlers. Bob Schneider, foreground, and Paul McHugh negotiate Cache Creek in inflatable kayaks. The run begins in a steep wilderness canyon and ends with an easy glide. Bob Schneider saws away part of a tree that formed a hazard on Cache Creek. A bald eagle, left, surveys the canyon.

He hosted an introductory meeting with the group on April 4. The 18-member Economic Development Advisory Committee includes small business owners, major industry executives and city officials, all coming together to help spur economic development and revitalization within Peabody.

Before performing solo, he performed for years in various bands. He dropped out of the University of Texas at El Paso where he studied art, while performing in his first band, a funk-rock outfit called Joe Rockhead.
