  • Pleasant Grove HS Varsity Baseball- What is going On! I am so angry!
    Does anyone have an experience with Pleasant Grove Varsity Baseball coaching? My son played freshman baseball and was coached by a man who regularly screamed profanities, publicly humiliated kids and clearly had favorites included his son who never sat out. It was "daddy ball" at its finest and kids with skills never played. His son however who regularly made errors played every game. I sat on the bench listened to parents complain, and leave in disgust and frustration. When I could no longer stand the situation I made an appointment with the principal thinking he must not know what was going on because a school like Pleasant Grove would not allow such discrimination and inappropriate behavior! The principal listened to my concerns and said he hadn't received any other complaints and dismissed my concerns. Didn't even have the courtesy of getting back to me, and the athletic director didn't even bother to show up at the meeting. My son went out for varsity tryouts. He was cut and told he didn't make the team because he didn't play summer ball. Other more seasoned parents told me he was blackballed because I complained. He went out for summer ball yesterday and was told they already have a team and don't bother coming out for tryouts. I am furious because I feel helpless! The school allows this inappropriate and unfair practice, parent's voices are not being heard, and kids are being bullied by adults. I know of at least six kids who actually changed schools after their freshman year because of this coach. Other parents must have similar stories please share them with me!!!! I need to know I'm not crazy and my kid can't be the only one who has experience the wrath of this coach! My son is a great player who's spirit has been shaken by one man. He is going to be a senior and the damage has been done but that doesn't have to be the case for other players! Parent voices together can make a change. Please send me your stories. It can be anonymous if you like I don't want your son to be blackballed like mine. I am going to post this on every public forum hoping to get parents to speak out.

Participants will receive an exclusive promo code redeemable at My.BloodSource.org for a FREE California State Fair ticket or a limited edition BloodSource/Blood Centers of the Pacific San Francisco Giants T-shirt!

    Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. Blood donations can help a patient in need such as John Phillips, a wrestler who recently graduated from Elk Grove High School. An autoimmune disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP landed Phillips in the hospital on his 17th birthday. John’s life was turned around thanks to blood donors who helped him get well. Plasma-based medicine was the key to Phillips’ recovery.

    In addition to blood donation opportunities, potential marrow donors ages 18-44 can register for Be The Match® national marrow registry through BloodSource. For more information, please visit bloodsource.org or call Elizabeth Rolli at (916) 453-3045.

  • Florin Drivers Fuel Up for a Dollar at Propel Fuels 105 Octane Tour
    Florin Drivers Fuel Up for a Dollar at Propel Fuels 105 Octane Tour
    Appealing to high performance car drivers, 105 Octane Tour showcases the power of Flex Fuel E85 while reducing emissions and air pollution

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 8, 2017) – This week Florin area drivers can fuel up with Flex Fuel E85 for just $1.05 per gallon as part of Propel Fuels “105 Octane Tour” to drive awareness of the fuel’s high octane rating which provides increased power and acceleration, while reducing emissions and air pollution. E85 is a clean-burning alternative to petroleum gasoline that is performance-optimized for use in Flex Fuel vehicles. E85′s octane rating is considerably higher than premium gasoline (105 vs 91 octane) and is comparable to racing fuel, increasing vehicle horsepower and acceleration, especially in higher compression engines.

    The 105 Octane Tour includes stops at five Propel stations around the greater Sacramento area. At each tour stop Propel will give away Propel ProShop swag including E85 decals, caps and mugs, register members to the elite Hi-Octane Society aficionado club, and have fuel experts on hand to answer questions. Upcoming dates and locations for the 105 Octane Tour include:

    ● May 10th, 10am-2pm – Florin (8062 Florin Rd.)
    ● May 17th, 10am-2pm – Roseville (999 Sunrise Ave.)
    ● June 7th, 10am-2pm – Placerville (151 Main St.)
    ● June 14th, 10am-2pm – West Sacramento (705 Harbor Pointe Pl.)

    Unlike petroleum, E85 is made from renewable resources including sugars, grains and agricultural waste materials. Using E85 not only decreases CO2 emissions by 40% versus gasoline (California Air Resources Board); it has also helped cut the consumption of crude oil by nearly one million barrels a day.

    “E85 is truly connecting with today’s smart, savvy drivers who want more value from their fuel than gasoline is giving them,” said Rob Elam, CEO of Propel. “Millennials are our fastest growth segment, as more drivers of high performance cars are seeking a powerful fuel to meet their needs.”
