Metro Fire Selects Mark Wells New Chief

Posted: 9/18/2014

MATHER, CA (MPG) - The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District (Metro Fire) Board of Directors announced on September 6th their selection of Deputy Chief Mark Wells to be the next Fire Chief. The announcement was made during a special meeting of the Board.

“The Board of Directors is very excited to work with Chief Wells to lead Metro Fire into the future,” stated Board President Randy Orzalli. “We are confident that Chief Wells’ vision, experience and expertise will ensure Metro Fire remains amongst the most progressive and innovative in the state. Continued strong leadership from the Fire Chief is critical, as we seek to deliver the best possible public safety service within our limited resources.”

Last month, Fire Chief Kurt Henke announced his plans to retire in October after 33 years in the fire service. Subsequent to Henke’s announcement, the Metro Fire Board of Directors approved a recommendation from its Executive Committee to conduct an internal search process among the ranks of Deputy Chief to select the next Fire Chief.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - Two 12-year-old Citrus Heights entrepreneurs are joining the ranks of serious BBQ competition at the Citrus Heights Sunday FunDay, September 28th at Rusch Park. This year, among the Citrus Heights Community Marching Band, vendor booths and community service organizations, there will be two young entrepreneurs with their very first business.

Ethan Stone and Mason Lewis are close friends who share a passion for everything barbeque. The two met in kindergarten at Woodside K-8 School and have been friends since second grade, playing on the same soccer team nearly every year since 2009. Eventually, they took their sports rivalry off the field and onto the barbeque grill, each claiming their barbeque formula was the best.

Raley’s Supermarket Settles Civil Environmental Case

Special Report
District Attorney’s Office
Posted: 9/4/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - District Attorney Jan Scully joins 25 other California district attorneys in announcing that West Sacramento-based Raley’s supermarket was ordered to pay $1,599,000 in civil penalties, costs and supplemental environmental projects, as part of the settlement of a civil enforcement prosecution, which includes a final judgment and permanent injunction. Raley’s cooperated with the prosecution team throughout the investigation into their unlawful practices.

The judgment is the culmination of a civil enforcement lawsuit filed in San Joaquin County to stop the supermarket chain from unlawfully transporting and disposing of retail hazardous waste. The lawsuit claimed that more than 130 Raley’s supermarket stores improperly stored, handled, and disposed of hazardous waste and pharmaceutical waste products into company trash bins. Instead of being sent to authorized disposal sites, hazardous wastes and contaminated materials were being unlawfully transported to area landfills. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Raley’s failed to take sufficient steps to preserve the confidentiality of their pharmacy customers’ information.
