At least 32 underprivileged K-6 students at Northridge Elementary School in Fair Oaks received a great surprise at the start of this school year: a backpack filled with all the school supplies they’ll need for the year. The Fair Oaks Library Teen Advisory Board made up signs and a large display for the library entrance, and put out a large bin for donations for the nearby elementary school. The Friends of the Fair Oaks Library and the local Rotary Club chapter urged their members to donate. Soon, the bin was filling up with backpacks, pencils, paper and other school supplies.

Fair Oaks CoHousing Neighbors
Cohousing neighborhoods are composed of privately-owned homes clustered around shared open space and extensive common facilities. The Club House typically includes a dining room, kitchen, workshop space, children’s playroom, guest rooms, and lounge. It is the heart of the neighborhood for a variety of other activities. Cars are parked on the periphery of the site, making the neighborhood more pedestrian-friendly and kid-safe. Future residents are involved in the design and development so that it reflects their needs and priorities, creating a truly custom neighborhood.

Sutter Imaging Offers Free Mammograms to Uninsured Women in Region

Posted: 10/9/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 10 Sutter Imaging locations in the greater Sacramento region are offering free mammograms to uninsured women during October.

Each of the 10 Sutter Imaging sites that are participating have set aside one Saturday this month to perform the free digital screening mammograms for uninsured women who otherwise may not have access to these potentially life-saving screenings.

“Early detection can lead to a longer, healthier life,” said Barbara White, M.D., Sutter Imaging radiologist who specializes in women’s imaging. “Unfortunately, some women view mammograms as ‘optional,’ especially those without insurance. We want to help create better access for them and put them on a path toward wellness.”

When the free mammogram program discovers abnormal results, it connects the women with community agencies that provide follow-up care.

MATHER, CA (MPG) - Arriving at Mather Field by airplane and vintage jeep, ace pilot Clarence “Bud” Anderson was guest of honor at the California Capital Airshow last weekend.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - It might be a great leap—nobody ever heard of Steppenwolf before Easy Rider—or a small step toward fame for baby-faced heart throb Todd Morgan. One way or another, having original songs in a movie is a super 24th birthday gift for the young performer.

“It all came out of the blue,” says the Rio Americano graduate. “The movie producers needed original music in the 1950s style. Someone I met at an LA industry trade event told them about me.”

The upcoming movie is called All American Horror. It is independently produced and stars Julia Robert’s brother, Eric Roberts. YouTube has the official trailer. As credits roll, Sacramento rock fans will recognize Morgan hammering at keyboards and singing.

Posted: 9/18/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Local residents submitted their planning application to Sacramento County on Monday, July 21st, to approve their design for a new environmentally friendly neighborhood on New York Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard in Fair Oaks. A group of nine families have been working with architect and international cohousing expert, Charles Durrett, on the design of their community.

The 30 new homes will range in size from two-bedroom flats to four-bedroom town homes, along with extensive community facilities and garden areas. The new community is unique in that it is being initiated by a group of local families that seek to live in a more socially and environmentally sustainable neighborhood than what traditional developers have been building in the Sacramento Suburbs.
