Saint John's - A Place for Hope and Dreams

Saint John's - A Place for Hope and Dreams

Tiffany and Michele Steeb, CEOTiffany has a gorgeous, sunny smile and bright, clear eyes. She is gloriously happy, perhaps for the first time in years...or maybe even her life. She has a roof over her head, her son with her, and a bright future. This is in stark contrast to just six months ago when she and her son were living in her car and she was (and still is) dealing with custody battles with her in-laws. She had been homeless for over a year, living in her car and on friend's couches. Tiffany represents the growing number of homeless families in Sacramento and her happy smile is due to one thing - finding help at Saint John's.

Excitement builds for Elk Grove running event all to benefit youth sports scholarships

Excitement builds for Elk Grove running event all to benefit youth sports scholarships

As a mom of two boys, Tamra Rickman felt she needed to do more than just remind her sons to do their chores and finish their homework. She wanted something for them to do as family. She encouraged her sons to take up sports and thought there would be plenty of benefits to them being on a team.

“It gave them a sense of responsibility. It gave us something to talk about. Sports also teach time management, teamwork and being prepared,” said Rickman, whose sons have played soccer and baseball.

The challenge was figuring out how to pay for all the expenses associated with playing a team sport. From the registration fees, to the uniforms and gear, and in some cases, the cost of travelling to games and events, the price to play can be in the hundreds or thousands of dollars.

But that’s where the Elk Grove Youth Sports Foundation(EGYSF) comes in.

All Aboard…Steam Train Rides Return to the  Sacramento Southern Railroad on 4/11!

Soon after the opening weekend of the 32nd consecutive season of excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad on Easter weekend (April 4 & 5, 2015), California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are pleased to announce vintage steam locomotive Granite Rock No. 10 will return to service on April 11, 2015.  First introduced in May 1997 by the California State Railroad Museum, Granite Rock No. 10 was taken out of service in 2011 for extensive boiler repairs during which time diesel locomotives pulled the excursion trains. Granite Rock No. 10 is an oil-fired steam engine built by the H.K. Porter Co. for the U.S. Army in 1942.

South Sacramento possible drive-by shooting leaves 1 wounded


A man was transported to UC Davis Medical Center after crashing his car when he was reportedly shot Tuesday afternoon, a Sacramento County sheriff's spokesperson says.

A deputy was flagged down by a witness who reported hearing gunshots on the 4500 block of Roosevelt Avenue at approximately 4:21 p.m., according to sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman. Deputies investigated and found a man, described as black and in his late 20s, who was unconscious.

Bowman said the witness told responders the victim was standing outside of his vehicle in front of a residence when he was struck by gunfire that may have come from a vehicle driving by. The victim got into his vehicle and attempted to drive but crashed into a fence. He was found in his vehicle.

There was no preliminary information on the victim's condition or about a suspect vehicle or shooter description.
