Elk Grove shooting, 1 dead

Elk Grove, a relatively quiet town, has lost a friend early Sunday. A shooting killed a woman and left three men wounded. Police reported the fight was between partygoers in a residential neighborhood.  Rest assured, two suspects were arrested hours after the incident at a Sacramento hotel nearby.  The incident happened just south of Laguna Boulevard of tract homes where many neighbors were dismayed and scared for their lives. Police officers found four victims.  Alison Joelle Freeseha, 25, of Escalon, who was pronounced dead at the scene, and the three men, whom were transported to a local hospital soon after their discovery.  Although names of the men have not been released, police said in a statement two men were in critical condition as of Sunday afternoon.  Elk Grove detectives said the house party boiled with two guest arguing, which led to a physical fight. They also said, one woman had left the house party, however, returned a short time later with a male passenger. The passenger then proceeded to open fire killing one person who approached the car and three others in a garage that was left open.   Investigators spoke with witnesses and identified suspects–Raymond Vigel, 20, and Tamara Bassett, 23, both live in Sacramento.  Vigel and Bassett  were arrested at the Comfort Inn and Suites, a hotel near Howe Avenue and Folsom Boulevard.  […]

Where did the library go?

Who has a copy of Kate Gaffney at The Torch Club?  Where can I hear the Dead’s 1981 New Years Shows?  Blockbuster doesn’t carry my favorite movie "Attack of the Killer Leeches" where do I go?  Quick where can I find a copy of Householders and Landers paper "Mathematical biophysics of the central nervous system"?  These are questions one might find themselves asking themselves, and thanks to the "Internet Archives" ( www.archive.org ) there is now a one stop location that answers these questions and countless more.  Questions you didn’t even know you needed to ask! This is what the Archives have to say about themselves: "The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library, with the purpose of offering permanent access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format."  I feel this statement, does not begin to do this organizton and site justice.  To me, this sight is a launch pad for  wonderful adventures.   Digging a little deeper , one begins to realize the true motivation of the folks who have been developing this site since 1996; "Open and free access to literature and other writings has long been considered essential to education and to the maintenance of an open society"  "…without cultural artifacts, civilization has no memory and no mechanism to learn from its successes and failures…"  The dedicated staff sure is […]
