Editor's View: Sutter Street shop to shutter
By: Don Chaddock, Telegraph Managing Editor
Teresa Yost, owner of As Time Goes By on Sutter Street in Folsom, is calling it quits. After working 22 years on the street, she said it’s time to move on to other things. She’s owned her own business for 18 years. “It’s been a long time,” Yost said. “We’ve seen some good and bad times. We made a decision based on the economy.” She said she’s looking at opening a business in Sonoma. “It would be a good fit for this type of shop,” she said. “I’d like to thank all our customers. … It’s been hard to say goodbye.” Many of her longtime customers wish her well. Pam Morin said, “The closing of this store breaks my heart.” Dean Byquist said, “This is my wife’s favorite store. I have been coming here for eight years.” Good luck in your new endeavors Teresa. ACTING OUT On Sunday afternoon I could be found watching nearly 40 people doing some fancy footwork not on a football field, but on stage. The El Dorado Musical Theatre’s production of “Grease” was a real crowd pleaser. Despite competing with the Super Bowl, nearly 130 turned out to watch the musical at the Oak Ridge High School auditorium. The oldest actor, Spencer Borup, is 19 while the youngest, Caroline Mixon, is 12. Borup also teaches at EDMT’s Performing Arts Institute. Mixon attends Rocklin’s Springview Middle School. For a full review, see page A7. Watching in the audience was John Hurst and his son Eric. John’s daughter Hanna, 8, is familiar to theater audiences because she’s currently starring as the title character in Sutter Street Theatre’s “Alice in Wonderland.” John tells me EDMT is a great place for kids to work on their acting skills. Eric and Hanna have been in EDMT productions before. Looks like acting runs in the family. Don Chaddock can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
