Granite Bay Volunteers Gather Saturday to Sew in 'Dress a Girl Around the World'' Campaign

Granite Bay Volunteers Gather Saturday to Sew in 'Dress a Girl Around the World'' Campaign

Most people probably don't give the pillow case too much thought.  It seems they have just one purpose -- but local heroes are turning pillow cases into something that can be a real blessing to a child living in poverty. 

"Imagine a world where every little girl owns at least one dress," Dress a Girl's Sacramento Area Coordinator Susan Bushell said. "In third world countries, a little girl with torn and tattered clothes is a prime target to being abused."

The volunteer seamstress’ turn pillow cases, table cloths and bed sheets into beautiful dresses for young girls. The dresses are then distributed to needy children in different countries around the world through the "Dress A Girl Around The World" campaign.

"Dress A Girl Around The World" was started in October 2009 as a way to prevent young girls from being targeted for trafficking in th

Roseville Galleria wing reopens

ROSEVILLE, CA - The Westfield Roseville Galleria celebrates reopening Thursday of a section shuttered last fall when an arsonist set fire to the mall, causing more than $50 million in damage.

At 10 a.m., another 15 stores and restaurants open for business along the Macy's (east side of the mall ) wing. They're in a section of the mall burned when Alexander Piggee set fire to the Game Stop last Oct. 21. Piggee has since been convicted and sent to prison on state and federal crimes.

Some stores, such as Macys, reopened within weeks of the fire.

The first 1,500 people in line Thursday were to receive a free totebag with discount offers and promotions commemorating the reopening. Westfield Galleria spokeswoman Stephanie Ringey said 100 of those early shoppers will also find a $50 gift card in their bags.

"We want people to come and check us out and see what we have done," General Manager Gavin Farnam said. "I think it is even better."

Patriotism Perspective

Patriotism Perspective

My son, Walker Knauss, will be receiving a Certificate of Merit award from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge for his essay on patriotism he wrote in the spring of 2011 while in 8th grade at Cavitt Junior High School.

T-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t screamed the machine guns, as Syrian soldiers under the command of regime leader Bashar al-Assad shot down their fellow countrymen. They continued to pelt the protestors until the square was littered with dead and wounded activists. The Protestors were just patriots defending their country; the soldiers were just patriots defending their country. Both groups held conflicting views about what it meant to be patriotic.

Sports Fans Can Now Customize Their "Best Seat in the House"!

Perfect for sports enthusiasts, the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries are providing a new “must have” game day accessory -- the new La-Z-Boy XZipit® sports recliner.  These generously-sized rocker or wall recliners can be customized with favorite team logos on a panel that zips in and out of the seat back with a patented hidden zipper design for easy customization. 

“Devoted fans can outfit their recliner with logos from the NBA including the Sacramento Kings famous logo, NCAA including Cal, Stanford and USC emblems, MLB including the San Francisco Giants or Oakland A’s logo and many more,” said Liz Reego, owner of six Northern California La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries stores.  “Then, once the season is over, a quick removal of the panel transforms the back of the recliner from game-day support to everyday coziness!”

And, because comfort and style preferences vary as widely as sports team loyalties, these fan recliners come in two different sizes: "Champ," a
