Family seeks answers in hanging of pet cat


ID=17492913A Roseville family wants to know who is responsible for hanging their 8-year-old cat in their neighborhood.

The cat - named Sassy Girl - was found hanging from a picket fence with a belt around its neck, according to a press release from the Placer SPCA. A microchip implanted in the cat identified it as belonging to the Roseville family; they were notified late Thursday that their pet had been killed.

"Yeah, I cried really hard," said pet owner Moriah Miller. "I was just devastated and confused. I don't know how somebody would do something like that to an innocent cat."

14 student players sidelined after being busted for drugs


A drug scandal at Oakmont High School in Roseville has sidelined more than a dozen student football players.

School officials began investigating several teammates on Friday when a football player was cited for possessing pot on campus.

"It came as a shock. We didn't exactly know it was going to happen," said Jacob Hageman, a varsity football player who is not under investigation.

"We knew there was a lot of drug use on the team, then the hammer finally came down," Hageman added.

The district got involved after Roseville police busted 18-year-old Marcus Anthony Shioya-Britter, an Oakmont senior and football player.

"The only citation we issued was to that individual. We didn't see any other criminal charges we could charge any other students," Roseville Police Department spokesperson Carlos Cortes said.

I live in Austin, Texas, where summer temperatures can last into October, and it’s not unusual to eat Thanksgiving dinner in short sleeves. That’s great news for local gardeners, but it can be tortuous for someone (like me) who longs to curl up with a cozy blanket and a cup of spiced cider.

Over the years, I’ve learned to be pretty intentional about celebrating traditional fall foods. Lucky for me, Whole Foods Market® features lots of limited-edition seasonal items, and I’ve come up with a few strategies for incorporating autumn’s awesome flavors in every meal... Read More
