Email chain shows homeowners pressured city staff to block Sacramento River access


SACRAMENTO - Homeowners on two riverfront cul-de-sacs pressured city staff to block public access from their neighborhood to the Sacramento River for at least five years before the residents erected fences on their own.

That information is contained in scores of email exchanges dating back a decade provided by the city of Sacramento in response to a Public Records Act request from News10.

CNU Summer Health Science Camp opens next week!

At the Summer Health Science Camp at California Northstate University, students won't be making any volcanoes out of baking soda and vinegar.  Rather, the courses focus on real-life application of medical principles, helping high school students strengthen both their understanding of those subjects, as well as their resumes.

The team of experts behind the Camp cover a huge range of topics, from health care laws including a "mock trial", to Emergency Triage "mock disaster", where the campers will get professional wound makeup to simulate an explosion with students as "victims."
