Dogs are pack animals, and no dog (or person) wants to be kept outside. Shame on those owners, and I do hope that Poppy finds a much better family. It's not the dog's fault if it barks when left outside. That, sadly, is the fault of the uncaring humans.
the morning news reported that the gallery will close. This is very sad. I'm also very, very angry.
In other areas of Sacramento, I've seen traffic lights installed, and the roads narrowed by the addition of "sidewalk" that extends into the roadway, limiting the amount of time people are actually on the street. In one area, I used to see these children standing and waiting at a 4 way stop as car after car after car drove through, never stopping long enough for the children to cross. I'd take the children by the hand and lead them across in the mornings. These were elementary school children. It's very sad, and I sometimes wonder where our priorities are.
Bruce, it seems like that program, or a program like that, existed into the 80s or so. Nationwide. Houses for $1 (or sometimes more), and there were people telling others how to get these $1 houses. I guess that program disappeared.
Commercially registered vehicles have a different license plate alpha/numeric configuration than those for non-commercially registered vehicles.
If you live in an area requiring special on-street parking permits (L, A, etc.), you'll need to obtain the correct on-street parking permits to park your vehicle (commercially-registered or not) in front of your house.
You'll definitely want to check with the DMV and your vehicle registration to see if the van is registered as a commercial or non-commercial vehicle. Next, if your street requires permits to park, you'll want to contact the City of Sacramento (if you live within the city limits) to obtain permits.
You will, at any rate, want to contact the local parking enforcement people where your van might be parked - inside the city limits of Sacramento, inside the city limits of another city, or for the county.
Regardless of whether your vehicle is registered as a commercial or non-commercial vehicle, you always want to find out what the parking regulations are and avoid any parking tickets. Registration as a commercial vehicle gives you a few extra parking options not available to non-commercially registered vehicles.
Begin with the City of Sacramento transportation department and ask the parking enforcement people, then check with the County of Sacramento and their parking enforcement people.
I think the summer reading program is a good one, but I had expected an article about the adult literacy programs that are available throughout the region. Sacramento is one of several libraries and organizations involved. I was a literacy tutor for several years, and it's a terrific program. There really are many people who have a difficult time with reading and with writing.
This article seems to be more about Belle Coolidge library, which is a fine branch, than about adults who can't read. Yet, the link is to the adult literacy program offered through the Sacramento library.
George, the link states the following, "An estimated 230,000 adults in Sacramento County are in need of help to improve their reading and writing skills."
I'm not sure where the figures for the 1 in 5 adults reading level comes from.
Is the ice cream social a fundraiser for the children's summer reading program or for the adult literacy program?
I didn't see any candles in the photos.
Thanks for hosting this workshop. Nice to meet and listen to Cosmo, hear the questions from other attendees and put some faces with some names.
Who's performing? I only see one person's name listed. I can't locate any information. Thanks!
I'm just wondering why it's Mr.
Thanks so much for sharing this. What a great event to attend!
How nice to know that there's another fine yarn shop in the greater Sacramento area.
the kickoff is at 3:30 p.m., but the show used to begin at 3:17. Anyone know if that's still the case?
I've been to this shop before. They have a great selection of comics, graphic novels, toys, and whatnot. Great people work there, too. Sam Kieth doesn't hold many public events, so this is a great opportunity to meet him.
Ben, I guess I just don't understand that loss or the whole fan thing, so I have trouble empathizing.
San Francisco (not San Franscisco)
Good riddance to the Kings. Bunch of trouble. If that's why people are staying here (where "we have so little"), then people should move to another city with sports.
Rather than concerning ourselves with overpaid sports teams with players and owners and others involved who don't always do the right thing, why don't we expend some of our energy on more sports for the younger generation, and why don't we look at the opportunity to increase arts and culture for everyone.
Read and create more art and play real sports with real people and watch less of the rest.
To the question writer: think about you being outside in the cold (or in the garage). Treat your dog as you would like to be treated and give it warmth and love and a clean, dry, not-too-hot or not-too-cold place to rest. Remember, too, that dogs need fresh water. Geez, if that person's only concern is whether or not it's against the law, that person probably shouldn't have a dog.
Romeo is just gorgeous!
