 2nd Annual "Dog Days of Summer" Show    July 31 - September 20

A Benefit for Front Street Animal Shelter  

Come celebrate our canine and feline friends at "Dog Days of Summer", and support a great cause! This year's show will be a fundraiser for Front Street Animal Shelter, and will run from July 31st - September 20, 2014. Artwork includes paintings, sculptures, and a collection of original art refrigerator magnets. There's something for every animal lover!

A portion of each art sale will go to assist Front Street Animal Shelter with their mission to provide quality care for more than 11,000 animals that come to the shelter each year. Your support helps to provide emergency and advanced veterinary care for sick or injured animals, and funding for adoption programs that help shelter pets find their "forever" homes.  Your support helps save lives!

Teacher responds to story about educator compensation


Responding to a recent News10 story regarding "double-dipping" and high teacher salaries, a Rancho Cordova educator wanted to share a teacher's perspective.

PREVIOUS STORY: How much does your teacher make?

"Our salaries were going down, and the cost of benefits were going up," high school English teacher Tony Ruiz said.

Ruiz has been teaching high school English for 12 years.

"I trust people as professionals, and sometimes I just wish teachers got the same respect," Ruiz said.

The bed building part of this project was a breeze. For the most part I built it myself and it was the first time I've taken on a project like this. Before this, I've never built anything. I did need some help from my husband moving and assembling it. ... Read More
