A Lodi woman was sentenced to four years in federal prison Wednesday for her role in a false insurance company that, among other things, refused to pay for medical bills because pain is part of "God's plan."

Donna Jean Rowe, 59, was convicted last summer of conspiracy, mail fraud and money laundering. Federal jurors also convicted James S. Kalfsbeek, 72, of Arbuckle, who had been an elected Colusa County supervisor in the early 1990s. He was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison.

    JD, you state that life is pain, not all of it I hope, if that were the case life wouldn`t be worth living. Pain comes in many different forms, there are people willing to sell you something that will make all the pain go away for awhile, booze and drugs for starters. Are you in pain as you typed this, I`m not since I have the best wife a man could ask for, a good home with few bills and good health, does that sound like pain to you. Life is what you make of it.
