Girl abducted from Carmichael residence home safe, sheriff says


The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department reports an 8-year-old girl was abducted from her Carmichael home early Sunday morning, but was able to return home safely.

The incident was on the 5000 block of Adelaide Way about 3 a.m. Sheriff's spokesperson Sgt. Lisa Bowman said a man entered the girl's home through an unlocked door and forced her to go with him to a wooded area nearby.

"She was taken while she was asleep," the victim's mother, who did not want to be identified, said.

"She didn't realize what was happening until she was out the door," she added.

While in the wooded area, the suspect released the girl, and she ran back home without serious injury.

San Juan school district shows off 2 new artificial turf athletic fields


ARDEN ARCADE, Calif. – Excitement around a home opener is always big in high school football, but this year, El Camino High School and Del Campo High School get to show off their new $3 million fields.

Normally hard-nosed football players were very eloquent as they described how they felt about their new field at El Camino.

"Beautiful, amazing," senior offensive lineman Austin Ruinolds said as he looked across the field.

The Eagles christen their $3.1 million field Friday against Sacramento High School.

Down the road, Del Campo will show off its $3.6 million facility at the same time.

The cost is covered by bonds approved as part of Measure N, which voters approved in 2012. The funds are for technological and facilities upgrades in schools.

But in an abnormally dry year, another benefit has come to the forefront.

Kick'n it for the Trees

Kick'n it for the Trees

It’s no accident that Sacramento is known as “The City of Trees.” Most of the trees that line our streets, decorate our parks, and provide blissful reprieve from our summer sun were planted by someone. For over 150 years, the people of Sacramento have planted and loved the city’s trees – making our urban forest one of the Top 10 in the U.S. And while planting trees can be arduous work with all the dirt and shovels, there’s a new way to help make sure that Sacramento stays in the shade for many summers to come.
