Park District gives new life to closed school

Park District gives new life to closed school

Folsom Cordova Unified School District recently faced the closure of two of their Elementary schools in Rancho Cordova.  Rather than let the facility sit idle, Cordova Recreation and Park District approached the school district about allowing the use of the space for community events and classes.  In a unique and cooperative arrangement, these two public agencies have entered into a long term lease allowing the Park District use of the facility as a new community center, while retaining ownership of the land and facility by the school district for future use as a school.  A low cost, 25 year lease has been negotiated, allowing both agencies to walk away with a win; the Folsom Cordova Unified School District will not have an empty building to attract vandalism and theft, and Cordova Recreation and Park District gains some much needed space

Does the Virginia Earthquake hit too close to home for you?

Does the Virginia Earthquake hit too close to home for you?

In case you missed it, Virginia had a 5.8 earthquake today.

Here's the story, a link to a photo gallery illustrating the event (photo gallery B) and another article with a different photo gallery link (to photo gallery A).

Though we may be "somewhat" use to this experience, guaranteed East Coasters are not.

Check out both picture galleries and this video, then call your friends and/or family who may live on the East Coast, and let us know how you all feel about this earthquake.
