CSD acts on staff, 1-mph speeding violations

The Community Services District board, the majority of which will be replaced next month, voted unanimously last week to grant the general manager a potential 4 percent salary increase and to hire a director of administration as second in command on financial and other matters. The board also addressed a “hearsay” comment that Security had been directed by the Rancho Murieta Association to begin issuing citations when drivers exceed the speed limit by even 1 mph. Read more »

Thank you, Murieta, for Macey's success

Macey Casagrande

Macey Casagrande did it again, collecting 735 coats – plus hats, scarves, gloves and dog jackets – and delivering them to the homeless early Saturday in Sacramento. There were a dozen people waiting in the pre-dawn darkness when Macey and her father, Sean, and mother, Tammi (below), plus family friends started unloading the items on North A Street, north of downtown. By 9:30, everything was gone. This was the 12-year-old’s third year doing this. The first year, she collected 126 coats; last year she got 575. She blew past this year’s goal, 600 coats.

Toasted marshmallows, cookies, cocoa, candy canes and Santa! Friday was a big night at Stonehouse Park. Thanks to the Rancho Murieta Association Maintenance Department, event organizers were prepared for whatever Mother Nature had in store. Twin fire pits kept the chill away and a huge tent sheltered Santa and Mrs. Claus as they visited with children and the Murieta Dance Company performed a trio of numbers from its upcoming holiday show. Santa alighted from a fire truck to start the holiday season by lighting the decorations. The rain relented for this annual Optimist Club event, which seems only fitting. S’more kits were provided by the Rancho Murieta Community Church. (Click for larger images)

A nice morning to trot for the turkey

Turkey Trot

DonationsAfter Wednesday night's rain, who expected weather so nice for the community's eighth annual Turkey Trot? The Thanksgiving morning event – a 5K run or walk around the community – drew about as large a crowd as the race has seen, in the neighborhood of a hundred participants. It's a casual thing among friends, and the only prizes were pies (chocolate pecan and pumpkin, which looked very good). The run raised $877 in cash and checks and two $25 gift cards for the Paradise fire victims. This year's trot almost didn't happen, and organizers Erin and Eric Dubey and Deborah Craig thanked the Optimist Club, and Melinda Martel in particular, for providing the insurance that allowed it to take place.
