Happy 70th anniversary, Barbara and Ken!

Quinn anniversary photo

Seventy years ago Wednesday, April 17, Murietans Ken and Barbara Quinn were wed. Their children share this note: "In this day and age, that's a pretty good run! After many years of living in Napa, where their three children were raised, they moved to Rancho Murieta, where they built their home and have happily resided for many years, enjoying the close friendships and the active lifestyle of the community. As they age – Ken is 91 years old and Barbara is 89 – having neighbors who look out for one another is vital. For us, their children, we are grateful for this. Our parents have set a wonderful example to us." It's signed by Karie Patching (and spouse Steve), Chris Quinn (and spouse Shannon) and Michael Quinn (and spouse Dixie).

Misguided approach on police use of force

Sue FrostPosted by Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost
There is a bill quickly making its way through the California Legislature (AB 392) which, if passed, will create a highly subjective standard for evaluating and holding law enforcement officers criminally liable for using force when responding to life-or-death situations based on hindsight, without providing any extra training to officers.  Because this bill would have a direct impact on the law enforcement officers who work for us here in Rancho Murieta, such as the deputy sheriffs and CHP, I want to take an opportunity to give you more detail on this important issue, and explain why I am staunchly opposed to this bill. Read more »

Is this the last time around the maypole?


After the event, Pamela Haines removes the braided ribbon from the maypole and gives it to a lucky participant. 2016 file photo. (Click for larger image)

Every May 1 for the last 25 years, you could find Pamela Haines in the shady field across from the North Gate. For a half-hour or so, she would beat a drum and lead children around a maypole to mark May Day in a celebration from another generation.  She’ll do it a final time this year, and unless someone steps up, that will be that – the community’s last maypole. Read more »
