Drexel University Sacramento’s Michael Marion Appointed to California Student Aid Commission

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Michael Marion, Executive Director and Associate Vice Provost of Drexel University Sacramento, was recently appointed to the California Student Aid Commission, where he will support the mission to make higher education more accessible for California students.

Appointments to the Commission are made by California Governor Jerry Brown and the position requires State Senate confirmation. As a commissioner, Marion will represent private and secondary education schools. He’ll attend his first Commission meeting in November.

“It’s a huge honor to be considered by Governor Brown for this role and be able to join some of the outstanding individuals who are already serving as commissioners,” Marion said. “This is a great opportunity to give back to students to make sure they can access financial aid and have the opportunity to be successful in college.”

Found: Halloween Funtivities

October is the best month of the year. I mean, how amazing is it when it’s 100 degrees one day, and a crisp 76 the next? It’s like Mother Nature finally let out a deep breath and the world sprung to life with golden leaves and bright blue skies and white fluffy clouds and a soft breeze … and yes, I love October.

But what makes this month particularly important is the celebration of the year’s best holiday: Halloween. I am a fiend for it. I spend the entire month trying to find scary books, watching scary movies – even ones like “The Others” and “The Sixth Sense” in which the ending makes up the whole point of the movie – and going places that embrace the Halloween spirit.

Here are some of my local(ish) suggestions to get into the holiday spirit in the Sacramento area... Read More

Paul Martin's Fall Menu is Here

Paul Martin's Fall Menu is Here

Fall means a change in the weather, in the gardens, and therefore, on your plate. When the weather changes not only does our produce in the stores change, but so do our appetites. Fall means squashes, Brussels sprouts, and the beginning of braised meats. And in our new world of farm-to-table dining, the menus at your favorite restaurants change as well.

I haven't been to Paul Martin's American Grill in years. The main reason is that  I live about 30 miles away from the nearest one in Roseville. Recently I was invited to go and check out their fall menu and I figured it would be a good time to revisit them and to catch up with someone who lives out that way, my ex-husband... Read More

School bus drivers trained to confront active shooters


ROSEVILLE - You may think loud kids are the biggest problem school bus drivers face, but these days drivers have to be ready to confront threats of all kind. Saturday bus drivers from across the region met at Roseville High School to get some experience on how to respond to an active shooter.

In many cases the bus driver is the first line of defense for school kids, so instructors put them through several scenarios on how to prevent a tragedy. On the bus, drivers are taught how to brake abruptly to throw the bad guy to the ground, and that's just the beginning.

"Confronting them, beating the crap out of them. I don't care what. Those kids are mine. As soon as they step on this bus, they're mine. They're not the parents' kids anymore. They're mine, all mine," bus driver Lorene Hines said.
