Bruski: Labor agreement between Sacramento and Kings another sign downtown arena moving forward

Bruski: Labor agreement between Sacramento and Kings another sign downtown arena moving forward

It may be fun for opponents to poke holes in the labor agreement reached between Mayor Kevin Johnson, the Kings and the Sacramento-Sierra Building and Construction Trades Council, which calls for most of the construction and labor jobs for the downtown arena to be filled by union workers, and it may be good for ratings to tell you that groups opposed to the agreement could join with STOP (Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork) to try and derail the arena project.

It’s just a waste of time.  One could almost hear faint undertones of that when Johnson told observers at today’s press conference that “fringe groups” would not “rain on this parade.”

2013 Weekly Challenge #32: Declutter (and SWAP)

2013 Weekly Challenge #32:  Declutter (and SWAP)

This week’s challenge is to de-clutter your closet!

We've talked before about having too much stuff - Clutter can be draining and de-energizing. By getting more organized, you simplify and live a more meaningful life.   I don't know about you, but when I'm surrounded by crap, I feel  like crap and can't live my best life.

For this week's challenge we're going to get a little more specific. ... Read More

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ELK GROVE, CA - Elk Grove and surrounding communities have been overlooked and under-appreciated when it comes to a regional theater and community arts center.

The need for the American Renaissance Institute of Arts is staggering, as community members thirst for arts education and performances ranging from ballet to musicals to theater to orchestral, jazz and ensemble-like performances. The research shows that nothing of this kind has been proposed, or even thought of in the private sector.

This venture was conceived from the ground-up to be self-sustaining, year in and year out without having to depend on money from rich patrons of the arts, without the need for grants, loans or angel investors.

Family medicine

Family medicine

After a spring filled with school activities, never-ending lunch packing and school drop off and pick up, work deadlines and dream-come-true projects, our family was truly counting the days until the school year finally came to a close so we could have things finally loosen up a bit.

And almost as soon as they did? We did the only thing we could possibly do; We packed our bags and ran off  to Dillon Beach for a long, much-needed weekend!

For three days, the four of us walked on the beach, stared at the sunset, soaked up the sun and piled into one big bed for snuggles and giggles... Read More
