Great Idea: Father's Day Kabob and Dip Bar

Great Idea: Father's Day Kabob and Dip Bar

Elizabeth Leader Smith

Spicy Grilled Peach and Chicken Kabobs

When it comes to Father’s Day, my family tends to keep the celebration simple just like my husband likes it. We opt for a big meal at home rather than a fancy brunch or dinner at a restaurant. But don’t think that eating at home can’t be fun. This year, we’re setting up a kabob bar stocked with meats, fish, vegetable and fruits and more dips that you can shake a skewer at.

For a family full of different likes and dislikes, the beauty of the kabob lies in its versatility. Whatever meat, veggie or fruit suits your taste, it has a place on a skewer. Plus, older kids can help thread kabobs. And after grilling, everyone can dip to his or her heart’s content. Sticks and dips — it’s a winning combination!... Read More

Teen recalls helicopter rescue after falling down waterfall


LOOMIS – A Loomis teenager was rescued by a helicopter after falling about 40 feet down a waterfall.

Days later, Andrew Musgrave is out of the hospital, at home recovering and recalling what started out as hiking adventure.

"I just remember catching up to one of my friends and then getting too much speed and blacking out," Musgrave said.

Musgrave was hiking with friends around Horsetail Falls on Monday when he fell down the steep rocks. He suffered a number of injuries in the fall.

"I fractured my jaw," Musgrave said. "Then, I hurt my wrists and my right hip, but they are not permanent."

Nolan Hargaray-Conter was with Musgrave when it happened.

McLemore inspires on and off the court with summer camps


One of the bright spots for the Sacramento Kings last season was the development of Ben McLemore. On the court, his scoring, defense and 3-point shooting all greatly improved.

But, it was off the court, where he showed his greatest progress.

A finalist for the NBA Cares Community Assist Award, McLemore was hosting his second annual Youth Summer Basketball Camp at Hardwood Palace in Rocklin earlier this week .

McLemore stays busy in the offseason by running his nonprofit "All 4 Kids." Based in his home state of Missouri, its mission is to feed hungry kids and give gifts to those who can't afford them.

"It's big to give back to the community, especially of where you come from and where you are now," McLemore said.
