I used to wonder if I'd sometimes be above the fog line on the 44th floor...

If the Metropolitan goes through, are you considering buying a unit?

I love that pic of the fog rolling throw downtown.

BTW, Marilyns on K on Friday will be hosting a night of tribute in memory of the death of the great John Lennon from 8pm-10pm. There will be a tribute band afterwards and also prize giveaways.I believe theres a 10 dollar cover. Go check it out!

According to the city council's agenda, it looks like the city will be buying the roughly triangular lot right next to the Bee Bridge on 19th and Q (there used to be an electrical transformer there) and turning it into a park. It's an interesting space: it used to be the center of a "wye" where Western Pacific trains left the WP mainline (the one between 19th and 20th) and the Whitney Avenue industrial switching branch (the alley between Q and R.) Also interesting (to a local historian, at least) is that the block across the street (Q from 19th to 20th) was once a city park, known as "Richmond Grove," until the WP put their mainline through it in the early 20th century.

I think the city also plans to add the corner where the transformer was (currently owned by SMUD) to the park space. Should make for a nice little corner. The city Parks Department has been discussing ways to build "pocket parks" in small spaces within the downtown area, and I guess this will be one of their pilot projects.

Uh, not good for our local job base or state of the McClatchy Co.


McClatchy's Miami Herald taps India workers
Sacramento Business Journal

Friday, December 28, 2007

The McClatchy Co. is moving more newspaper jobs to Asia with a decision to outsource some work from The Miami Herald to a company in India, the Associated Press reported Friday.

It's the second such move this month for the Sacramento-based newspaper publisher (NYSE: MNI); The Sacramento Bee also is moving some advertising production work to India.

The Herald, McClatchy's second-largest newspaper by average weekday circulation and largest by Sunday circulation, will begin sending copy-editing and design work in a weekly section of community news and of some special advertising sections to Mindworks Global Media, based in New Delhi, the AP story reported. Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal told the news organization that Mindworks also would monitor reader comments on online stories, and that the program was being tested so no decision has been made on whether Florida jobs would be affected.

The US OMB officially added the Yuba City MSA to the CSA, renaming it, Sacramento-Arden Arcade-Yuba City, CA-NV CSA. So here is the new total with that.

Sacramento...................1,415,117
Placer.............................329,818
Yolo................................197,530
El Dorado.........................178,689
Nevada.............................99,587
Douglas, NV.......................45,909 (based on US Census 2006 Est)
Sutter..............................92,715
Yuba................................70,053

TOTAL...........................2,429,418

I have to laugh at Arden-Arcade being in the name since it has virtually no civic identity or even recognized by the post office as an address designation.

Since Elk Grove is the second largest city in the MSA, it should read, Sacramento-Elk Grove-Yuba City, CA-NV CSA

It will soon enough when the name is officially changed to the

Sacramento, Dixon, Elk Grove, Roseville, Folsom, Galt, Yuba City, Marysville, Arden-Arcade, Curtis Park, Citrus Heights, Antelope, Truckee Ca-NV CSA

Should just be Sacramento, CA CSA or something. It would make the city seem bigger :-D

As far as I know, the CSA cities are the biggest job centers in the region in order of jobs. I could be wrong. But, I swear I read that somewhere!

I am way confused at something. What and where exactly is Arden-Arcade?
I am reading what I can, but I guess I never realized it is being considered not Sacramento?!

Edit: OK, I read the Wikipedia on this Arden-Arcade (CDP). I never knew, I always assumed that was all Sacramento city.

That's why this whole incorporation effort is stupid IMHO! My grandparents moved to "Arden-Arcade" in 1950 from midtown. My grandfather told me that the "old-guard" in Sacramento felt that the natural northern boundry for Sacramento was the American river. Development happed out there anyway, largely to the job base at McClellan. There were several efforts to annex the area to Sacramento, all of them failed. The last effort was in 1960. Most of the old-timer anti-city people have passed on. The incorporation effort is by a few people looking for local control. they failed or refused to consider the option of annexing to Sacramento.

I am convinced that the incorporation will fail for the following reasons:

1..Unlike, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Carmichael, Fair Oaks and North Highlands...Arden-Arcade has no civic identity.

2. Many people living in Arden-Arcade are unaware that they are not really part of Sacramento even though they have a Sacramento address.

3. The area is divided. Many people are questioning cityhood and suggesting that annexation to Sacramento is a better solution.

4. Sacramento is finally looking at annexation of unincorporated areas like Fruitiridge-South Sacramento, Rosemont and Arden-Arcade.

I personally feel that the county should not be in the municipal service business. Either there should be wide spread city/county consolidation (failed in 1974 and 1990) or complete annexation to cities.

I grew up in Rosemont (Rosewood Dr.) and always thought of it as Sacramento. I would rather have them do it than Rancho!
