Sales and Marketing
I work as a sales and marketing representative for Revolution Screening based out of West Sacramento. I love to spend as much time as possible enjoying the thrills of nature. Oh, and I definitely enjoy an evening at one of Sacramento's great bars/restaurants with a friend and a glass of beer.
It is estimated that more than 100 hikers are trapped on the trail to Half Dome in Yosemite, CA Sat. evening June 13, and one person is believed to have fallen. The person’s condition is unknown as is the condition of all hikers who became caught in a violent hail storm at approximately 3:30 p.m. Weather took a quick turn from cloudy and dry to the hail storm that currently pommels Yosemite Valley. Rangers are unable to attempt rescue attempts at the moment due to the dangerous weather. According to park rangers, the trail is impassable until the storm subsides which might not be until early Sun. morning.

Approximately 10:30 p.m. Fri. May 22. My girlfriend and I were entering our car parked on the corner of 14th and Q Streets after enjoying some portabella and tofu burgers at Burgers and Brew. A loud crack rang through the night air drawing my attention. Seconds later a second crack followed, this time louder. I surveyed the street wondering if I heard a minor car accident when the unique sound of splitting wood occurred.

I have worked the last 16 weeks as one of four unpaid interns at Sacramento Press. I started with no experience in journalism and felt completely overwhelmed with my new responsibilities, which were in addition to taking five classes at Sacramento State University. Now, nearly four months later, I leave this position with an appreciation for the writing skills I have developed and a deeper understanding of journalism. Sacramento Press is not traditional journalistic reporting. As you know this is a community-contributed news site. The reporting, with the exception of a very small group of staff and interns, is done by members of the community, which is the reason Sacramento Press stands o
I have never felt so alive as when I'm holding onto a ledge on the side of a mountain hundreds of feet above the ground surrounded by nothing but rock and clear blue sky. Rock climbing is an exhilarating sport that has had a presence in the California Sierra Nevada mountains since the 1950's. California is home to several of the most famous climbing locals in the world such as Yosemite and Bishop and Joshua Tree in southern California. But you don't have to travel that far to enjoy beautiful outdoor scenes and high class climbing routes. Sacramento is a central location to many excellent climbing spots for any level from first-time beginners, to professional-rate advanced climbers. Begi
