Pet microchip sessions set for Sept. 9 and 23

Sunday's chance to have your pet microchipped by the SPCA, which was canceled, has been rescheduled to two sessions, Sept. 9 and 23, at the Gazebo, probably from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., the Rancho Murieta Association said Monday. It's not known yet whether a scout troop will be present to collect items for the SPCA's animals. As a bonus, anyone who signed up at Sunday's session will get a free microchip (though Murietans will donate their fee to the SPCA's good work, we're sure).

CSD questions traffic enforcement impacts

Ticket enforcement

Here's a look at CSD enforcement in several categories in the last year. These numbers are taken from monthly reports to the CSD board and, when those were not available, from the daily Security Logs. “Parking” combines driveway and street parking violations. The August 2018 numbers are a projection based on the first 20 days of the month.

While the Rancho Murieta Association board has pushed for and welcomed stepped-up traffic enforcement, Community Services District directors took a critical view of its impact on patrol time at their meeting this month. The board also questioned an RMA proposal for a security committee meeting. Read more »

You get a second chance at pet microchipping

Dog chipping

From left, Girl Scouts Abby Donnalley, Kaydence Farnsworth and Faith Hawkins, all 10, visit with the dogs waiting to get identity microchips Sunday afternoon at the Gazebo. Unfortunately, there was a communications breakdown with the SPCA ... and its chipping van didn't show up. After 45 minutes, with a waiting list 18 names long, and lots of dogs and one cat on hand, the Rancho Murieta Association explained the situation and said the event would be rescheduled soon. But the Girl Scouts, from Troop 1568, did well with their wishlist collection for animals: Among the items collected were dog and cat food, animal toys, a fur trimmer and a large dog crate.

Frost: Obvious solution to complex problem

Sue FrostPosted by County Supervisor Sue Frost
Every year, our Sacramento County Sheriff's are receiving more and more dispatch calls for people experiencing a mental health crisis.  Unfortunately, far too many of these people don't get the help they need and wind up downtown in the Sacramento County Main Jail for a few days because our officers don't have any other option than to arrest them. Read more »
