On November 4th, Election Day across the United States, we will be deciding if we are heading in the right direction for our county, and especially our great state of California. Higher taxes and ever-growing burdensome laws are crushing small businesses, costing Americans millions of jobs. Out-of-control spending by the federal government means tightening everyone’s belt - except theirs. It is not a question of higher taxes and fees. It is a question about whether or not they will tell us what they are doing with all the new legislation “before they pass it.” We cannot just let them continue pretending to be transparent.

On a statewide and local level, we are voting on many ballot measures and propositions. We are also choosing our leadership on many levels of local and state government. Ask yourself this, “Am I tired of working harder and harder and keeping less and less of my own hard-earned money?”

New Fair Oaks Boulevard Sentinels

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Planted to acclimate over fall and winter, 22 mature palm trees are a new boost for Fair Oaks Boulevard beautification.

Trucked from different parts of California, the costly sentinels herald a huge landscaping project designed for the new Milagro Centre. Six 50 foot Canary Island palms now echo profiles of those on nearby Palm Drive. Carmichael farmer and matriarch Mary Deterding planted her ranch driveway here almost 100 years ago. Her avenue became Palm Drive, now a community landmark. A 2012 county-funded project imported six more of the giants (buying, shipping and planting is estimated at about $1,200 per palm) as adornments for the Fair Oaks and Marconi corner.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - He might be older, a little wider at the waist and sporting designer spectacles these days, but homegrown baseball legend Dusty Baker is no less a crowd pleaser than when he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers or managed the San Francisco Giants. Returning to his Carmichael roots, the 65-year-old noted the community is more integrated than in his Del Campo High School days.

“I noticed lots of African American and Hispanic kids on their way to school today,” he told the Carmichael Kiwanis. “When we came here from Riverside in 1965, the Bakers were one of the few black families in Carmichael. On my first day at school, I asked my brother: are there any other black kids here? And he said: ‘just you.’ … These days, kids come up to me and thank me for helping race relations in this community. I hope I have.”

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - In her last week as a Post Office mail carrier, Phylis Thomas was renowned as queen for five days.

Her 95608 customers hosted a dinner, a happy hour, and a picnic; co-workers threw a potluck, a flag presentation and a night out. The five-foot heroine was also paraded up and down Cole Street (Carmichael Colony) in a convertible. “I practiced my wave,” confessed Thomas. “People saw me in a party dress after all those years in uniform. I feel overwhelmed by support and love. I never knew a mail carrier could touch so many lives.”

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Customer service, sales, manufacturing, and drivers are in high demand among Sacramento’s top employers in October, November, and December.
