SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Red Bench Entertainment writer and director Angela Zaniboni calls the film Incongruity, which she wrote and directed, a supernatural drama. The film will premiere at a gala event with the theme The Great Gatsby. The show will be 5-10 p.m. on December 27th at Curtis Hall, Sierra 2 Center for the Arts, Sacramento. The family-friendly event will showcase Red Bench’s work.

“There will be slide shows, videos, movies, projects that we’ve done,” said Cheryl Rubio Barrios, CEO of Red Bench and producer and executive director of the film. “The finale will be (the showing of) Incongruity.”

Appetizers and drinks, socializing and mixing will tie in with the 1920s theme.

“There will be dancing, singing, and even some live acting,” Zaniboni said.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Fiddlers old and young, or people who just love violin music, are invited to meetings of the California State Old Time Fiddlers Association. Held at the Orangevale Grange Hall, the monthly fiddlers’ jam brings violinists out of the fret work.

The second-Sunday musical meet is patronized by up to 200 amateur, professional, and die-hard musicians of all ages. Some have beards whiter than the strings of their bows. Others are in grade school. The youngest struggle to get scaled-down fiddles under dimpled chins.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Supporters greeted the funeral procession of fallen Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver Monday afternoon as it traveled from Interstate 80 eastbound, down Greenback Lane. Law enforcement and first-responder agencies from all over California participated in the solemn show of solidarity, coming from as far away as San Luis Obispo, Riverside County, Inyo County, and even Sparks, Nevada. Hundreds of sheriff’s department, police, fire, and California Highway Patrol units accompanied the procession as it departed from the public funeral services held at Adventure Christian Church in Roseville and traveled to the East Lawn Cemetery in Sacramento for the family’s private burial service.

“All of us in the first responder industry, from the police to fire, we all consider each other brothers and sisters,” said Sacramento Metro Fire Department Captain Brad Reynolds. “It’s vitally important that we all share in this and show our support for their family members. As sad as an event as this is to bring us all together, it’s very heartfelt to see this all happen.”

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The day was all about the children. The grand opening of the Arcade Creek Park Preserve in Citrus Heights began with the usual grand opening ceremonies and speeches but quickly became a most unique grand opening with the ribbon cutting of the only free public zip line in Sunrise Recreation and Park District (SRPD) history. This day marked the beginning of a new era of recreational park experiences.

The days of the picnic in the park and playing on the swing set are being transformed by this new form of recreation, with families spending more time together as they play, exercise, explore, and become educated about their surroundings all in one area. With the realization that the city is developing these surroundings from natural features that have existed in this place for over 100 years, parents and grandparents may be taken back to a time when they were free to roam the creeks and explore the woods and trails.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The competition was fierce between the 13 chili chefs at the GFWC Citrus Heights Women’s Club Fifth Annual Chili Cook-off and Venders and Craft event on October 11th. The parking lot at 6060 Sunrise Vista was buzzing with activity; there were over 500 shoppers and chili tasters. Vintage cars and children’s activities rounded out the day’s attractions. For a fee of $10, all were encouraged to taste and then judge the chili entries.

The polls closed at 2 p.m., and the votes were taken to be counted; contestants and friends waited eagerly for the results. In the final tally, entry No. 1 overtook and passed entry No. 7, but Kristy Hernandez with GFWC Citrus Heights Women’s Club conceded that while her chili won, it may have been because second place entry No. 7 ran out before the polls closed. Hernandez was awarded $150 for her efforts. When asked her secret, she replied, “patience,” and allowing her chili to simmer for an undisclosed period of time.
