Independence Day was always a particularly festive occasion in our family. For months leading up to the holiday my grandpa Joe would grow out his snow-white goatee.

Summer Food Events - What will you eat this summer?

Summer Food Events - What will you eat this summer?

The great thing about Sacramento is that we have food events all year long.  Our name of Farm-to-Fork Capitol is appropriate with everything from Baconfest to the Banana Festival. In fact, sometimes competition is fierce for your attention and your dollar.

We are also blessed to be in the middle of so many destinations. With Napa, Tahoe, Reno, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey/Carmel, and Yosemite so close by, there are events to select from throughout Northern California.

Below is the Foodie Calendar through September's Farm-to-Fork Festival. The ones with comments are my favorites that I return to year after year.

July 17-18 Marysville Peach Festival
July 18 Capay Organic Tomato Festival 
July 24-26 Gilroy Garlic Festival... Read More

Assemblyman Cooley Honors Local Science Champions at the State Capitol

Assemblyman Cooley Honors Local Science Champions at the State Capitol

RANCHO CORDOVA – Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) honored three teams from two local schools for bringing home national awards at prestigious annual science competitions on Monday June 22nd. Two of the award winning teams are from Mira Loma High School (Arden-Arcade), and the third is from Winston Churchill Middle School (Carmichael).

“What a great honor to recognize the hard work and dedication these students put in to achieve these significant awards,” said Cooley. “Their emergent knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math may lead them to become the professional scientist who resolves some of our most challenging problems, such as a cure for a cancer or an engineering design that can propel us to Mars or beyond,” Cooley continued.  “An extra nod to Mira Loma’s science teacher and coach, James Hill who has lead the high school team to the national competition 17 times, more than any other coach in the United States.”
