Beale AFB would lose 774 jobs in proposed cutbacks

YUBA COUNTY, CA - The workforce at Beale Air Force Base would shrink by about one-fifth under proposed defense department cutbacks.

The high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft base, which is about six miles east of Marysville, would lose 741 active duty military and 33 civilian positions in fiscal year 2012-13. Beale employs approximately 4,100.

The 9 Reconnaissance Wing Public Affairs office says most of the cutbacks involve the previously-announced decision to retire Block 30 RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned surveillance aircraft and transfer MC-12Ws, which are used for surveillance and intelligence gathering and relaying, to four air National Guard locations elsewhere.

U-2 spy planes and one of four Phased Array Warning System locations in the U.S. would remain at Beale.

Congress is the final authority on the reductions.

Gutterglove Brings China Manufacturing Back To Rocklin

Gutterglove Brings China Manufacturing Back To Rocklin

California manufacturer Gutterglove, Inc., will bring its gutter guard manufacturing from China back to California by second quarter 2012.

This will infuse millions of dollars back into the Golden State, create new jobs, and hopefully set an example that other manufacturers can follow.

Robert Lenney, founder of Gutterglove, Inc. and inventor of its multi-patented line of gutter protection systems, started off in 2003 by manufacturing parts through Kaiser Aluminum in Southern California.

"Originally, my plans were to make the gutter guards in California, but because the parts used were from high end, high quality materials, they were very expensive to make," says Lenney.

Brain child born of marriage between faith and business turns one

Brain child born of marriage between faith and business turns one

Stephanie Sherwood started The Bam Project one year ago. It began as a project to unite Christian businesswomen on the three tenets of Beliefs, Authenticity, and Message. Recognizing a gap between the roles women are expected to assume on Sunday mornings versus the roles they assume the other six days of the week, Stephanie wanted to form a safe place for women to come and network, get to know each other, and talk about their business and their faith in the same sentence.

Having already branded herself as a business matchmaker, Stephanie was passionate about networking to connect businesspeople.

“My belief is that networking is not just about creating a database.
