Assemblyman Ken Cooley Honored by Citrus Heights City Council

RANCHO CORDOVA – Assemblyman Ken Cooley (D-Rancho Cordova) announced today that he is being honored by the city of Citrus Heights for his work on behalf of the City to resolve its dispute with the State of California over redevelopment agency funds. The city’s work on this issue, aided by Assemblyman Cooley, ultimately saved the city and its taxpayers almost $8 million dollars.

In 2008, Citrus Heights made the prudent decision to fund its redevelopment agency via a loan of monies from its general fund, instead of funding through a bond which would have cost Citrus Heights taxpayers nearly $500,000 more in associated costs. In June of 2011, legislation was passed and signed by Governor Brown effectively ending redevelopment agencies and phasing out their activities into other local successor agencies over a period of years.

The White House Drug Policy Office Awards Grant for Arden Arcade Area

The White House Drug Policy Office Awards Grant for Arden Arcade Area

The White House Drug Policy Office recently awarded a five year grant to a coalition, created by the Sheriff’s Community Impact Program (SCIP), to prevent youth substance use in the Arden Arcade area of Sacramento.  The Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Arden Arcade (CSHAA), as one of the national grant recipients, will receive $125,000 yearly in DFC grant funds to involve and engage our community to prevent substance use among youth. 

“We know that evidence-based prevention efforts are the most effective way to reduce youth substance use and to support the roughly 90 percent of American youth who do not use drugs,” said Michael Botticelli, Director of National Drug Control Policy. “By bringing together schools, businesses, law enforcement, parent groups, and other members of the community, DFC-funded community coalitions are helping to protect youth from the devastating consequences of non-medical prescription drug use, heroin and other substance use.”

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

You heard me. Put it down. You don’t need that last Milky Way. No seriously, you don’t. Will one more kill you? No. But you don’t need it. Step away. Throw it away. Like deep down in the trash so you aren’t tempted to dig it out later in a moment of weakness. Is it in there? Deep down? Good. Now get out of the house and go for a walk. Crisis adverted.

You’re welcome.

I think we can officially welcome Autumn at this point since it doesn’t appear it will hit 90 degrees again in the coming weeks. So welcome beautiful cool, crisp, air. Bright, deep, gorgeous fall colors, and every holiday that center’s around eating. We here at Mama Bootcamp welcome you with open arms. (notice I did not say open mouths?) but open arms yes, because it is the most wonderful time of the year!
