SACRAMENTO REGION (MPG) - Turn on the television on any given day and the lead news story reports violence in our nation’s communities. Too often, kids are involved. Social experts who study human behavior argue that today’s youth are under more stress than ever before. Gang warfare, street stabbings and shootings, proliferation of drugs, binge drinking, and teenage pregnancy are just some of the stresses young people are subjected to in their schools, homes, and communities. Tragically, many of these “at risk” kids are caught up in a dangerous lifestyle. It doesn’t matter their ethnicity, gender, age or family background; no child is immune to the negative influences around them. According to Wayne Hironaka, Chairman of I AM PEACE, Inc., over 25% of Grant High School teens are identified as “at- risk.” More are likely in the other North Sacramento high schools.

Port Business Plan is Updated

Posted: 9/17/2014

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - The Sacramento-Yolo Port Commission met this month to take a look at the Port Business Plan which had been adopted in March of 2013. Most of the recommendations that were previously made have been successfully implemented. The Port has fully transitioned into a pure landlord operating model.

As a landlord, the city staff’s primary focus is to manage and expand the Port’s tenant portfolio. The goal is to maximize real estate based revenues, while controlling costs. This will help the Port to maintain a sustainable economic enterprise. The land use policies of the City of West Sacramento, as well as the economic policies that are currently in place, work to enhance the Port’s role as a regional transportation and recreational asset.

Raley’s Supermarket Settles Civil Environmental Case

Special Report
District Attorney’s Office
Posted: 9/3/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - District Attorney Jan Scully joins 25 other California district attorneys in announcing that West Sacramento-based Raley’s supermarket was ordered to pay $1,599,000 in civil penalties, costs and supplemental environmental projects, as part of the settlement of a civil enforcement prosecution, which includes a final judgment and permanent injunction. Raley’s cooperated with the prosecution team throughout the investigation into their unlawful practices.

The judgment is the culmination of a civil enforcement lawsuit filed in San Joaquin County to stop the supermarket chain from unlawfully transporting and disposing of retail hazardous waste. The lawsuit claimed that more than 130 Raley’s supermarket stores improperly stored, handled, and disposed of hazardous waste and pharmaceutical waste products into company trash bins. Instead of being sent to authorized disposal sites, hazardous wastes and contaminated materials were being unlawfully transported to area landfills. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Raley’s failed to take sufficient steps to preserve the confidentiality of their pharmacy customers’ information.
