Nugget's Array from Ettore

Nugget's Array from Ettore

In my professionally trained culinery opinion, Nugget's cake assortment could not get any better. No need to even try. Yet, they did it. They brought in an array from Ettore's! 

Nugget locations now carry Ettore cakes that adorn the entire top shelf of the display case, which you can also buy by the slice.

Why the fuss and what's the big deal, you ask? Have you tasted Ettore's cakes?  Why, yes I have.  Have you studied under Ettore?  Yes, I have. Cake...it just makes everything ok, or at least a heck of a lot better.  Cake is my favorite word in the English language. Just hearing it makes me happy.  

American River Conservancy Hosts Open House

American River Conservancy Hosts Open House

A new exhibit, “Watersheds: Human Connections,” is now on display at the American River Nature Center. Located in Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma, CA the Nature Center is the education hub of the American River Conservancy (ARC). On Friday, April 12th from 1 to 3 pm, ARC invites the public to attend an open house that showcases the new permanent exhibit.

Funded by a Proposition 84 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, the watershed exhibit uses interpretive panels and interactive displays to educate visitors on California’s waterscape. A 3-D model of the American and Cosumnes River watersheds illustrates the infrastructure – dams, hydroelectric facilities, and canals that are important components in moving water from its source to its users. A large interactive watershed table demonstrates the impact moving water has on a landscape or how erosion impacts a diversity of habitats.

How to become a weather spotter

SACRAMENTO, CA - Weather forecasting continues to improve along with technology, but some of the best tools we have are the eyes and ears of people living in areas affected by severe weather.

The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Sacramento is seeking volunteers to be SKYWARN Weather Spotters. On-the-ground reports help improve warnings and forecasts. This is especially helpful at elevations from 2,000 feet and above and in rural areas. These areas have fewer reporting sites so filling in data with spotter reports can help greatly improve storm tracking.

The next spotter training class is March 11 from 6 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. This online training session will focus on providing weather spotter training and weather safety information for those wishing to become a spotter or as a refresher for existing National Weather Service spotters.
