Arden Hills-trained Collin Altamirano plays role in University of Virginia winning NCAA championship

Arden Hills-trained Collin Altamirano plays role in University of Virginia winning NCAA championship

Collin Altamirano, a rising national tennis champion on scholarship at the University of Virginia (UVa) who continues to train at JMG Tennis Academy at Arden Hills in the off season, played a key role in the men’s tennis team winning the NCAA Championship title on May 19, 2015.  Ranked third going into the tournament, the Cavaliers defeated top-seeded Oklahoma in a 4-1 victory in Waco, Texas.  In fact, Virginia defeated Oklahoma in all matches during the highly competitive tournament. And, after playing with heart, intensity and talent, Altamirano made the all-tournament team in singles and the duo of Altamirano and partner J.C. Aragone earned all-tourney recognition in doubles.

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city

Sacramento is a top 10 destination city


Sacramento is a destination city? It seems so, according to U-Haul.

Sacramento made this year's cut – rising three spots from last year to be named the 10th U.S. destination city.

The rankings reflect the top 10 destinations of U-Haul one-way rentals for the previous year. There are several reasons for the growth.

The survey credits the area's "green living" initiatives, as well as affordable regional home prices compared to coastal cities.

Another reason, Sacramento's growing entertainment hub with the new downtown arena well on its way.

"We're really stoked," said new Sacramento resident Whitney Dufresne, who moved to an east Sacramento home on Thursday. "Living near a great park within walking distance to a lot of neat restaurants and things to do is exciting for sure."

DIY Ceramic Mobile + Wind Chime

DIY Ceramic Mobile + Wind Chime

I'm excited to share this project with you guys because it marks my official entry into the world of air dry clay. I know everyone is doing it, at least all the cool kids are (probably explains why I am just now getting my hands dirty... literally). While this is a DIY tutorial on how to make your own fab mobile wind chime, since there are a million and one tutorials on how to use this stuff, I am keeping it short and sweet and just touching on a few of the things I found tricky or helpful.
