Wildlife Rescue and Rehab Needs Your Help

Posted: 8/8/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The Wildlife Care Association and Education Center (WCA), the leading wild bird and small animal rescue facility in Northern California, is now in need of rescue itself. Without major community and other support, the doors of the WCA will close at the end of 2014. WCA relies totally on the support of the public, local businesses, and other non-profits.

Recent media attention to the financial plight of the WCA, housed at McLellan Park in Sacramento, brought a favorable response from residents and businesses in surrounding communities served by the facility.

Over $100,000 annually is needed to operate the 2-story, 4,000 square foot facility. The 2014 season began with only $30,000 in available funds. These recent donations, along with much needed supplies, will only carry WCA through the end of this season. Expenses include bird and animal food, medical and other daily supplies, utilities, and building maintenance costs.

Hash Oil Explosions in Sacramento County

Posted: 8/8/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Homemade manufacturing of hash oil is widespread in Sacramento County. It causes explosions and fires in our neighborhoods and puts the safety of our residents at risk. Also known as wax, shatter, honey oil, hash, BHO, earwax, oil, concentrated cannabis, and dabs, hash oil is a highly concentrated form of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. It is highly popular among both recreational and medical marijuana users.

The most popular production method is BHO, or Butane Hash Oil, which utilizes the highly volatile solvent, butane. The butane vapors evaporate during the process, but are heavier than air and often congregate in a low lying highly flammable cloud. A pilot light, static electricity, overhead light switch, or an automatic switch such as that found in a refrigerator or air conditioning unit is enough to ignite the cloud. The result is a sudden, powerful explosion and ensuing fire.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Have you ever wondered what and where the Pits are? Everyone talks about them; race cars come on the track from the Pits and exit off the track into them. Occasionally the announcer tells everyone there’s a conflict in the Pits, or a driver and his car are sent to the Pits if they’ve broken the rules. At All American Speedway, the Pits are directly across the track from the grand stands behind a tall red and white safety wall. This is where cars and crews ready their machines for the evening’s race. Driver rules for the contest are reviewed, and most importantly, the cars are inspected in the Pits. The common term for this around the race track is tecking.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - Stones Gambling Hall celebrated its grand opening on Friday, July 11th. Instead of the over-the-top style of a Vegas event that might be expected at a casino’s opening bash, the feeling at Stones was more like that of a family celebration, and all who attended were included in that family.

Founder and owner, Ryan Stone, joined forces with Sami Ladeki, CEO of the Ladeki Restaurant Group and longtime friend of Stone and his family, to create an upscale, family-friendly destination. Stones is a unique addition to the Sacramento region; it’s a family oriented establishment, fine dining destination and high-end gambling hall.

Job Demand Hiring Trends for Local Companies in the 3rd Quarter

Posted: 7/17/2014

Job Seekers Look to the Future
A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014. In a direct telephone survey of Sacramento’s top regional employers, fifty percent (50%) say hiring is motivated by expansion of existing workforces, and eleven percent (11%) also attributed seasonal demands for seeking workers in July, September and October.

Attrition, or replacements among the existing workforce motivated the other half expecting to see applicants. Pacific Staffing discovered just twenty-nine percent (29%) of Sacramento companies contacted directly between May 21st and June 11th are not hiring. While service and manufacturing companies were driving the majority of hiring anticipated in the third quarter, construction firms were almost evenly split, and just one retail firm surveyed was not looking for help. Also signaling continued robust employment in the area, not one company noted any plans for layoffs in the next quarter. Several firms also mention that retention of current workers was a growing concern and noted finding adequate numbers of qualified applicants as another challenge.
