Special Edition Keepin' it Social: Blog U Event

Love for people, that’s the big secret behind launching and maintaining a successful blog.

"Memphis" - April 26, 2011

The hit Broadway show  "Memphis" is a sexy, rollicking  rock and roll musical ride set in the 1950's. The musical tells the story of a white DJ that is trying to get "race" music onto the mainstream airwaves when he meets and falls in love with a black soul singer.   "Memphis" took four Tony awards in 2010 including the coveted "Best Musical." Now theater lovers don't have to jet off to New York to see the play, just head off to your local movie theater.  One of the show's live performances was captured and now "Memphis" is hitting the big screen.

Every 15 Minutes Event visits Vista Del Lago High School

 

The phone rings and your son or daughter says "Mom and Dad, I was in an accident. I was drinking. I’m okay, but I don’t think Kelvin is." The thought of answering such a call is a parent’s worst nightmare. Twenty five Vista Del Lago parents will receive that telephone call tomorrow. One family will learn that their son or daughter was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular manslaughter.

 

The Every 15 Minutes program returns to Vista Del Lago High School tomorrow and Thursday through the coordinated efforts of the Folsom Police Department, the Folsom Fire Department, the California Highway Patrol, and the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. Although it is only a two day event, months of preparation come down to these final two days.

Folsom Glenn Car Wash & Auto Lube Aims to Raise $10,000 for Local Schools!

Folsom Glenn Car Wash & Auto Lube Aims to Raise $10,000 for Local Schools!

Folsom Glenn Car Wash & Auto Lube is kicking off their WASH 4 SCHOOLS today.  They are donating a portion of all wash, detail and lube packages purchased the entire week to our local schools.  The fundraiser is simple.  Come in for a car wash or oil change and they’ll donate up to $5 back to the school of your choice.

WASH 4 SCHOOLS was created by Jon Tilford, General Manager and Jen Yee, Marketing Director.  They were discussing their allocation of donations and realized how many schools had asked them to donate in the wake of budget cutbacks the past few years.  Jen thought they should do an in-house fundraiser to collaborate efforts to raise money.  By using the car wash’s resources for ALL the schools at once they could maximize the community exposure and raise more money.

“We donate thousands of dollars in cash and washes to our schools every year.  We love to help, but the past couple years we were hit by the economy

McCorkle added that the ISO also contributes to solar production through an onsite solar farm at its new Folsom headquarters, generating about 750 kilowatts to be used toward the facility's daily demand through rooftop and carport photovoltaic panels.

'Church Sucks' signs generate complaints in Folsom

FOLSOM, CA - Signs popping up around Folsom saying "Church Sucks" have triggered plenty of complaints.

People may be surprised to learn that Pastor Stu Streeter of Disciples Church is responsible for the controversial campaign.

"It's just inflammatory enough to get attention and yet we have something to say," Streeter said.

Two weeks ago the pastor and church members posted 100 signs around Folsom.  A week later they placed 100 more. Streeter said each time the signs disappeared within 30 minutes.

"Most of the signs were pulled down by angry neighbors, some city officials or people who just didn't understand," Streeter said.

He said the idea for the sign came from studies showing there are about 30 million Americans who claim they're disillusioned with church.

Former prison guard sentenced for smuggling phones to inmates

SACRAMENTO, CA - A former state prison guard has been sentenced to 45 days in jail for smuggling cell phones to prison inmates.

The Sacramento County District Attorney's Office says Terry Lane was fined $5,700. That's the amount of bribes he accepted from inmates for bringing the phones into California State Prison, Sacramento. He'll also serve three years on probation.

The 25-year-old from San Jose pleaded guilty Friday to felony conspiracy to aid a state inmate's unauthorized communication. A bribery charge was dismissed in a plea deal.

The prison system is trying to curb contraband phones by using trained dogs, random searches and technology to block unauthorized calls.

The four-year veteran was caught Aug. 7 bringing three phones into the prison. Prosecutors say he brought in multiple phones over a three-month period.
