Yolo County takes the gold in State Fair exhibit competition

YOLO COUNTY - This year, Yolo County took home the Gold Medal for its California State Fair booth in the counties’ exhibit competition with the theme: “This is How We Roll in Yolo,” a press release announced Tuesday. Out of the 29 participating counties, Yolo County’s unique exhibit impressed the judges with its celebration of the many roads, bike trails, famers markets, wineries, and sports and leisure activity available in Yolo County.

This year’s display was made possible thanks to generous donations from: the Yolo County Farm Bureau; Supervisor Duane Chamberlain; River Cats Baseball; Cache Creek Casino; Whitewater Adventures; the cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland; YoloArts; and the Yolo County Visitors Bureau.

Yolo County residents and merchants get money back from bad check writers

From the Yolo County District Attorney's office.

District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that the Yolo County District Attorney Check Prosecution Program recovered $32,918.13 for Yolo County merchants and residents during the month of June, 2011.  

“Much of the money was paid to the victims by check writers before criminal proceedings were initiated. Once criminal complaints are filed and arrest warrants are issued, the court supervises the payments of restitution,” stated District Attorney Reisig.

It is not uncommon for check writers to “bounce” checks to businesses or individuals.  These checks are generally written on checking accounts with non-sufficient funds (NSF) or on CLOSED ACCOUNTS.  If businesses or individuals in Yolo County have been unable to get cooperation from the check writers, they are encouraged to contact the DA Check Program.

A Swing and a Hit Along West Capitol Ave

As part of West Sacramento's redevelopment project, standing tall along the east end of the newly landscaped West Capitol Avenue, between City Hall and the Civic Center, cast your eyes on a pair of giant bronze sculptures.  A pitcher and a batter, both complimenting nearby Raley Field.  City proud and winning! 

Capitol Bowl Bride of 1983

 Capitol Bowl Bride of 1983

James Marshall graduate, Lynda Herren Rogers, married the late Gary Lee Rogers on August 27, 1983.  At that time, Gary had part ownership in what was then El Rancho Bowl, a major entertainment hub on the west side of the river.  Now a West Sacramento Landmark, the renamed Capitol Bowl is undergoing an exciting renovation facelift to complement the new Civic Center, City College and City Hall.  The Rogers unique wedding took place inside the bowling alley, a strike in their favor, and the beautiful bride walked down the 10th lane.  Needless to say, their 200 guests had a ball.  After hearing about the "destruction party" on April 22nd, benefiting the Special Olympics of Northern California, Lynda stopped by News10 to reminisce with lifelong friend, yours truly, who attended the nuptials and caught the bouquet...which doesn't work by the way.
