TELL US - Are you disappointed in local news coverage?

Hmong Students Create H.O.P.E.

Hmong Students Create H.O.P.E.

Sacramento -- Hmong Opportunity Program for Education (aka H.O.P.E.) is the creation of Sacramento City College students promoting higher education within the local Hmong community.

Surviving on donations by area businesses and concerned citizens, H.O.P.E. President See Vang says fundraisers such as last Saturday's car wash provide funding to increase awareness of the Hmong culture and history.

"Our mission is to motivate and encourage high school students to achieve a college degree," explains Vang, adding, "and to decrease the drop-out rate of Hmong college students on campus!"

H.O.P.E. President See Vang points out the ultimate goal is a scholarship fund assisting Hmong students to stay in college.  

Currently, the group is finalizing plans for an upcoming BBoy Jam fundraiser in late April or early May.   Check out Facebook @SCC HOPE for details!

Shirey--Sac City Police Must Pay!

Shirey--Sac City Police Must Pay!

Sacramento -- John F. Shirey, Sacramento City Manager, says police officers must contribute their share of pension costs to substantially reduce Sacramento's approximate $9 million budget deficit.

"They gotta pay!" Shirey states at the first meeting Wednesday of the 2013 Sacramento City Management Academy.

"Police patrol officers do not pay their pension share.  These are hard times!  Most [city] employees are paying their share of pensions with the city paying its employer share," Shirey comments.

He says if police patrol officers pay their share of pension costs -- projected to be $5 million -- it will substantially reduce the city's current $9 million budget deficit.

At the start of the long-term recession, Shirey says the city entered into five-year contracts with labor unions.
