Contributor of the Month: Blogger Catherine Enfield

The contributor of the month piece will highlight a My Neighborhood blogger who has posted multiple pieces during the month and is doing something exciting. The contributor of the month is picked by News10 My Neighborhood staff.

I met up with Catherine Enfield at the Sugar and Spice Bakery at 12th and F. Bakery Owner Carissa went about her afternoon as she baked more treats and helped patrons pick out their perfect dessert.

Catherin and I stood in the corner and chatted about her blog Munchie Musings.

“The Munchie Musings is actually an appropriate title because if I had to think of a mission statement it would be thoughts, musings, about food and life,” Catherine explained.

SLIDESHOW: Apartment fire

SACRAMENTO, CA - Neighbors kicked down the door to rescue a man and two kids after fire broke out in their apartment.

It happened early Thursday morning at The Gables Apartments in the 900 Casals Street in the Rosemont neighborhood of Sacramento.

The man and his 8-year-old son were found in their bedrooms, unconscious.  The 12-year-old boy tried to rescue his brother, but couldn't get him out of the window.

Fire Chief Chris Holbrook says the 12 year old suffered a severe cut to his arm.

All three family members are being treated at an area hospital.

Holbrook said it's clear the fire started in the kitchen, likely on or near the stove.  There was not a working smoke detector inside the apartment.

California health insurer loses data for 1.9 million customers

SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) -- A California-based health insurance company says it is missing data servers containing the health records, financial information and Social Security numbers for nearly two million customers.

Health Net Inc., based in Woodland Hills, said Monday it cannot account for several server drives from a data center in the Sacramento suburb of Rancho Cordova.

The managed care company would not disclose how many people could be affected, but the California Department of Managed Health Care placed the number at 1.9 million. The department says nine server drives are missing and is conducting its own investigation into the company's security practices.

Health Net, which provides coverage to 6 million people across the country, notified those whose privacy might have been compromised and offered them two years of credit monitoring.

Rancho Cordova Police awarded grant to combat underage drinking

Rancho Cordova Police awarded grant to combat underage drinking

The Rancho Cordova Police Department was recently awarded grant funding to conduct underage alcohol decoy operations.

Police officers and Alcoholic Beverage Control Investigators will conduct operations to prevent minors from obtaining alcohol. Minor Decoy operations are compliance checks in which teenagers, under the direct supervision of police officers, attempt to purchase alcohol from retail licensees. Those who sell to the minors face a minimum fine of $250, and/or 24 to 32 hours of community service for a first violation.  In addition, ABC may take administrative action against the alcoholic beverage license, which can result in a fine, suspension of the license, or permanent revocation of the license. 

Minor Decoy operations have been conducted by local law enforcement throughout the state since the 1980s. When the program first began, the violation rate of retail establishments selling to minors was as high as 40 to 50 percent.

Stop Trafficking Symposium on March 26

Six Soroptimist International clubs are coming together, in conjunction with My Sister’s House, to host a STOP Trafficking Symposium.

Soroptimist is an International organization of business and professional women that support services that advance human rights and the status of women and children. Americas has launched a national campaign to help bring awareness to the problem of Trafficking. The U.S. Senate has acknowledged that the techniques used by traffickers to keep their victims enslaved severely limits self-reporting; thus, it is imperative there be increased public awareness and advocacy on behalf of the voiceless women and girls held captive.

The symposium is scheduled for March 26.
