Making Waves

In the face of squalls, the Vista del Lago High girls swim team continues to push forward, carving out a legacy in the water at one of the area’s newest schools.

The Eagles are not funded by the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, have a pool they can’t compete in for half the season and field no other aquatics program on campus which diminishes their numbers. But, bolstered by a fourth-place finish at last month’s Sac-Joaquin Section Swimming Championships, Vista del Lago’s girls have earned the reputation in the swimming community as a program on the rise.

“It’s really neat to (watch) – they’re setting the tone,” said Eagles coach Joel Garceau, who also heads the swim teams at Folsom High. “They’re setting the traditions.”

The three schools that finished ahead of Vista del Lago – St. Francis, Davis and Rio Americano, respectively – boast a combined 26 section swim titles, so, truly, there is no shame in fourth place.

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

Summer Infant Water Safety in Sacramento

With the beginning of summer upon us, thoughts turn to fun in the sun and water.  For infants and toddlers, that can mean tragedy.  In California, drowning is the number one killer of chidren under the age of four, according to the Infant Swimming Resource of Sacramento.

In addition to providing the safest pool environment possible such as constant adult supervision, fences, covers, and alarms, ISR suggests a program of swimming self-rescue lessons as additional prevention to protect children from accidental drownings.  Children as young as 7 months old learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.  Older children also learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe and roll over again to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool to crawl out. 

These skills are taught by certified instructors to assure that a day

2011 Gold Prospecting and Mining Summit April 23 and 24

The price of gold recently hit an all-time high at $1,476 per ounce! Throw in a popular reality show called “Gold Rush Alaska” – currently the most popular show on the Discovery Channel – and the stage is set for the next Gold Rush!

We’ve received hundreds of calls from would-be prospectors looking for answers, and from small-scale miners looking to expand their operations. As a result, we’ve put together our first ever Gold Prospecting & Mining Summit in the heart of California’s Mother Lode.

The 2011 GOLD PROSPECTING & MINING SUMMIT, hosted by ICMJs Prospecting and Mining Journal, is being held today and tomorrow at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, California.
