Low levels bring hope for families of Folsom Lake tragedies


FOLSOM, Calif. -- There's a bright spot to the drought that's leaving Folsom Lake hovering around historic lows. The lower the level goes, the more is revealed along the lake's bottom. Family members of loved ones presumed drowned in the lake said every time the water drops, their hopes for closure rise.

"It's a fun place to be, it is," said Frank Wilcox. "It's a great recreational place, but for our family, it's a gravesite."

It's been roughly 50 years since Frank Wilcox's brother died in a New Years Day plane crash over Folsom Lake. Glen Emick was just 15-years-old. He was one of four people on the plane that officials said took a nosedive into the deepest waters.

"It's very difficult," he said. "Every New Year's Day. Every time you drive by the lake."

Skeletal remains found in Folsom Lake


The receding water levels at Folsom Lake have uncovered skeletal remains. They were found by a 12-year-old hiking in the area with some friends in the Red Bank area of the lake.

The real price families pay for youth sports


FOLSOM - A typical family dinner for the Jones family happens when they can make it happen, even at 9:30 at night when all four of their boys return from soccer practice. It is a balancing act between work for the parents, school and homework for the kids, practice, games and tournaments.

...the Jones spend 17 percent of their income just on soccer.

"It is a juggle, but is a juggle that works," Siobhan Jones said.

The juggle is because their four kids, 14-year-old Rhys, 13-year-old Kye, 11-year-old Taine and Bryn, who is 9 years old, all play elite competitive soccer with the San Juan Soccer Club-- a club that requires membership and dues.

"For us, with four in the club you get a sibling discount. We pay full prices for the most expensive two, and we get half price on the least expensive two," Steve Jones said.
