STATE SENATOR LELAND YEE IS IN GUN DEAL TIMEOUT:

First let me say that it's good to be back in the saddle. Second, what is going on with the State Senators? You have Rod Wright & Ron Calderon screwing around, taking money etc. But now, you have the smoking gun. State Senator Leland Yee allegedly is involved with an ex con with the street name of "Shrimp Boy". Allegedly, Yee & Shrimp Boy are possibly involved in some type of Firearms deal with FBI undercover officers. I read several articles about this. We are talking about shoulder guns. The term shoulder guns reminds me of AK-47 Rifles & The RPG rocket launcher. I would love to have a rocket launcher. In closing, remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

SUBWAY RAPIST LINKED TO OTHER CRIMES?

22 year old Kenneth Anderson, a long time employee at the Subway Sandwich Shop located at 5400 Auburn Blvd has been taken into custody & is a prime suspect in the other rapes along the I-80 corridor. He is being held in the Sacramento County Jail on one Million Dollars Bond. UPDATE: Even though Kenneth Anderson is still in custody, DNA tests do not link him to the other rapes in the area.

THE DEVIL'S RIDE SEASON FINALE:

In the past couple of weeks, I did finally have a chance to view the season finale of "The Devil's Ride" I was shocked to see the "Laffing Devil's" drop their cuts & ride off into the sunset. And of course, The toughest "Laffing Devil", "Sandman" was a no show. Hey man, he caught an assault charge. What can I say? Will there be another season of this reality show? Tell me what you think.

R.I.P: COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA IN ARDEN ARCADE

I find it interesting that despite a great location, Country Club Plaza is once again on the chopping block. There is Woody's Grille & Bar in the front of the shopping center. It's a nice restaurant. I even did a review of the place. For a long time, Country Club Plaza had a Farmers Market on Saturday's. But it was in the back of the shopping center. If it was in the front parking lot near the now closed Gottschalks it would have brought in more people to the Shopping Center. Another thing is the rent they charge. Is such a high rent necessary? The demographics are there. The traffic is there. Only greed is closing down Country Club Plaza.

TIME FOR A CLUB VOTE:

First, let me apologize for being away so long. Let's just call it a case of writers block. Even though I could have been writing about the shooting on Light Rail near 11th & O street, or writing about the Kings, I just needed a break. I have been to over 100 Restaurants in Sacramento, what's next? This is where I need your help. Yes, all of you. Whether you are from North Sacramento or New Zealand, I want to hear from you about the direction of this blog. From Los Angeles to Atlanta or from New York to Coos Bay I want to hear from you. If you want me to re - invent or shut down this blog, let me know. Send your comments to: Sacramentoblog@comcast.net

AIRPORT CATALYTIC CONVERTOR THIEVES TO BE SENTENCED ON FRIDAY.

If you recall last May, a crew of thieves were busted stealing catalytic convertors out at the Sacramento airport. Basically, they were caught "Red Handed" in the long term parking lot at the Airport. So let me ask you this, if you are caught at the airport stealing catalytic convertors & your duffle bag contains tools to steal, what are you gonna do? It's not like it was a mistake & you were going to catch a flight. No excuses. Your Busted. With that being said, Lon Nguyen & Eduardo Labitoria (who needed an interpreter during the trial) have both been found guilty of several counts of Grand Theft. On Friday, January 10, 2014 they will be sentenced. My question is, how much Prison time will they serve? Should they just be let go? Email me your thoughts at Sacramentoblog@comcast.net

DUCK DYNASTY: NEED I SAY MORE?

It's really sad when a man speaks his mind, backed up with the Bible & gets silenced. Hopefully, Phil Robertson will avoid his suspension. Otherwise I think the entire family will stand by Phil & production will shut down.

EDITORIAL: MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM TARGET

By now everyone knows of the "security breach" involving 40 million Target customers. As for me, I try my best to stay ahead of the internet hackers. When you're a blogger it's just a daily grind. Sometimes, I feel I've been hacked & other times I don't. But this whole security breach at Target is a whole different story. Yes, I shop at Target. Sometimes I charge & sometimes I pay in cash. I just spent a half hour on the phone waiting for my customer sales rep. We looked thru my account & all was secure. Then I called Discover Card. Fortunately, there was a member announcement about the recent "hack" at Target. Basically, we were told to rest easy & that they were on the job. Very professional. So I hung up. I don't use my Discover Card that often anyway. Best of luck to all of my fellow Target Shoppers.

T.G.I.F.: ANOTHER WEEK IN THE BOOKS

I know it's been a long time since I posted. I accept full responsibility. But, like most of my readers I have been going through a lot lately. I even got to spend sometime in the Courthouse. There has been so much going on. Too much crime to list. When will it all end? As of today, let's say that one crime that was recently committed was like the straw that broke the Camel's back. For a couple of days I have been reading the story of Melvin Hayes. His wife had recently passed away & near as I can tell he was on the way to spread her ashes. Melvin decided to stop & get his car washed. While he was there, someone stole his car along with his wife's ashes. So now, his wife has passed away, her ashes have been stolen & Melvin's car has been stolen as well. Let me say this. If you know who did this, have them take the ashes to a nearby Fire Department & drop them off. After you get away, make a call. The car can be replaced. Do the right thing. UPDATE: Melvin Hayes car & the urn of ashes have been found! Mr. Hayes says that he will file charges against the alleged thieves. It's nice to see a happy ending to this story.

Unfortunately, Stephen Pease, the owner of Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill has been found dead. Various news reports state that Stephen Pease was found along the border of Sonoma county & Mendocino county. Investigators feel that Mr. Pease was in the ocean at some time. I will follow up on this story later.

OBAMA CARE: WHO NEEDS IT?

You have to admit that I have been on the sidelines regarding this subject for a long time. So, what do you think? Should I jump in? First, let me say that I don't have every detail about Obama Care Program. But I have heard a few story's. This story sticks out the most. If I am wrong, let me know. This is a story of a husband & wife with two kids. The husband works full time & his wife works part time. With a miracle, they manage to log on & explore the Obama Health Care site. They discover that it will cost approximately $800.00 per month to cover the entire family. Second case scenario: Enter the second couple. The husband has been laid off work & the wife is a stay at home mom. The couple lives in Section 8 Housing & they go to the local food closet for food. As they log onto the Obama Care website, they discover that there monthly bill for healthcare will be $4.00. Yeah Buddy! Is this right? Tell me what you think. Leave a comment or email me!

MELT DOWN AT EDD: COMPUTER FAILURE = NO CHECKS

Nothing like being out of work & not getting your EDD unemployment check. Another system failure by government. In recent days, it looks like a "Mole" at EDD has came out of the woodwork & is talking. If you are out of work I suggest looking at EDD for training, job opportunities etc. That is their job. To provide jobs. Let the money thing go. That's all screwed up right now. May I suggest selling on eBay, having a Garage Sale etc. The country was built on buying & selling. Not waiting around for a check. You have to make your own luck. If you need help, email me at sacramentoblog@comcast.net

T.G.I.F: ANOTHER WEEK IN THE BOOKS

Hey people, just thought I would check in & do a post or two. Like always, it's been a heck of a week. As a matter of fact the stress got so bad for me, I took today off! Yeah Buddy! I do have a question for the Sacramento Local Readers. What's up with all of the accidents this week? It seems like everyday I wake up & go online someone has been ran down in the middle of the night. They are pedestrians, people on bikes, or people just trying to catch light rail in the morning. WTF? Everyone needs to slow down in the morning & make the City of Two Rivers a safer place to live.

GOOD FOOD & GOOD PEOPLE: WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?

It's nice to be back in the Saddle again! So here we go! Ok, City of two Rivers, mark your Calendar. It's getting close for the "Christmas Around The World Festival" On Saturday November 9th 2013 there is going to be a Fantastic Food Festival at the Greek Church located at Alhambra Blvd & F Street. Basically, look for the Big Greek Church across from McKinley Park. Admission is Free & you have a lot to choose from. There will be Crafts, Raffles, a Rummage Sale & all kinds of food including: American, Egyptian, Ethiopian, Greek, Armenian, Middle Eastern, Russian, Slovak & Ukrainian. My past experiences lead me to believe that there will be music & dancing as well! See you there!

EVENT: SACRAMENTO INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW

Nothing like a good Car Show to wash away your troubles. But this is not your typical car show. The is the International Auto Show at Cal Expo. This is a great show. You can go & look at all of the best that the automakers have to offer. The best thing is that the representatives are there to provide information only. It's a relaxed atmosphere. You can look, touch & smell without a salesman breathing down your neck. For more info, go to Google.com.

T.G.I.F.: IT'S BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME

First, let me apologize for not checking in sooner. Buy doing so I have discovered that if I don't blog, people will not listen. My readership can span across the world or I can be lazy & watch the worldwide communication shut down. With that being said, how about a fresh version of T.G.I.F. Another Week in the Books! Yeah Buddy! Like the title says, it's been such a long time. I have been through a lot. Flu Shots, Smog Inspection, Blood Pressure check, Dentist Appointment, as well as dealing with difficult people etc. etc. To top it off, this week I had the "smoke detector" check from my Property Management Company. This consists of a search of your apartment comparable to the latest version of the TV Show "COPS" Needless to say, I passed all of the challenges. Stay Tuned. I have a lot to talk about!

EDITORAIL: PREVIOUSLY ON THE SONS OF ANARCHY

Have you been watching? Looks like this is going to be a great season. Will Jackson Teller get the Club going in the right direction? I have to admit that this is some great writing. Hope that all of my readers are enjoying the show!
