God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise

Folks venturing near the Riverwalk were greeted by high-waters that engulfed the entire park up to the grand staircase. According to the Mayor Cabaldon's Facebook post "That's a design feature, not a problem, but not the best day for frisbee". Thanks Tamara Carr for sharing this photo of the day.

A Wee Bit O' Irish with Whiskey and Stitches

Whiskey and Stitches performed at the Wee Bit O' Irish Night at the West Sacramento Moose Family Center....Matt Hargrove introduced the group and noted that if it isn't loud it isn't Irish music...the crowd was not disappointed.

Willie DaPrato, West Sacramento Icon

It was such a treat to run into Willie DaPrato at the VFW Post in West Sacramento today. 15th Street Fitness is now located in the building that old timers in West Sacramento fondly remember as Willie's Market. When we were kids we would hang out at the store and pester owner "Willie" DaPrato. Willie was kind of the neighborhood guidance counselor and I think he hired many of those kids to work in his store to get them off the streets. Some folks might remember that Willie was elected to be the first mayor of West Sacramento, but the vote to incorporate our city Willie never served. It was nice to see you Willie!
