Thin Mints Are Here!!!

Thin Mints Are Here!!!

Sacramento -- Girl Scout cookies are (finally) here -- but only until Sunday, March 17.

Or, until they sell out... a sad fact I experienced last year.

Locate dates, times and locations where these fabulous once-upon-a-year treats are sold at www.girlscouts.org and enter your zip code to find Thin Mints and other delights!

Remember -- when Girl Scout cookies are gone, it's an entire year before they appear again.  Stock up now!  (You'll thank me later.)

Railroad Museum to Commemorate Historic Date in Railroad History

Railroad Museum to Commemorate Historic Date in Railroad History

One hundred and fifty years ago – on January 8, 1863 – California Governor Leland Stanford turned a ceremonial shovelful of earth near the intersection of Front and K Streets in what we today know as Old Sacramento. This marked the starting point for the Central Pacific Railroad, one of two companies that together would construct America’s first transcontinental railroad.  To commemorate the inception of one of the United States’ most significant accomplishments, the California State Railroad Museum will debut a new sign at Front and K Streets on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, at 12:30 p.m.

Following the sign unveiling, the nearby California State Railroad Museum will offer an afternoon of special public programs focusing on the First Transcontinental Railroad. Featured speakers include the following: Dr. Richard Orsi, author and professor emeritus of history at California State University, Hayward; Kyle K.

Join Law Enforcement Chaplaincy in Drive-By Prayer Rally - Our City Needs You!

Join Law Enforcement Chaplaincy in Drive-By Prayer Rally - Our City Needs You!

Join Law Enforcement Chaplaincy-Sacramento ~ Every prayer is heard!

WHAT: Drive-by Prayer Rally is a citywide response of prayer to the senseless violence that is claiming the lives of both the young and old throughout our communities. Sacramento has nine “gates” or entrances. We will be driving the perimeter of the Sacramento from gate to gate to declare Peace in the streets! Safety over our families! Life over death!

WHO: We are believers of varied denominations, race and ages, standing united in prayer, passionately gripped by a promise from God: the healing of our land (2 Chronicles 7:14). Sharing the heart of God, our hearts are torn by the senseless violence in our city. Instead of sitting comfortably within the four walls of the church building, we've decided to go and act on the promise and hope of God for our city.
