Fantasy Football Do’s and Dont’s

Fantasy Football Do’s and Dont’s

The greatest time of the year is upon us: football season. If you’ve never participated in a fantasy football league before, make this your year! There are few things better than competing against your friends, and a fantasy league offers a socially acceptable reason to bet against your friends and curse at each other in public. Need I say more?

There are so many variations on lineups and scoring systems that I won’t get into them here, but luckily Wikipedia has it covered. Don’t let that scare you off, though – fantasy is really easy, even for beginners! Here are a few quick tips to make your fantasy team a success:... Read More

California lawmakers pass paid sick leave bill


SACRAMENTO - A bill that would provide paid sick leave to all California workers is waiting Governor Jerry Brown's signature.

Despite opposition from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and California Chamber of Commerce, the bill was approved early Saturday morning in the Assembly by a 50-20 vote.

It had passed the State Senate on a 22-8 vote Friday evening.

Sponsored by Assem. Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), Assembly Bill 1522 would give millions of California employees at least three paid sick days a year.

Gov. Brown has expressed support for the bill.

"Tonight, the Legislature took historic action to help hardworking Californians," Brown said in a statement. "This bill guarantees that millions of workers - from Eureka to San Diego - won't lose their jobs or pay just because they get sick."

Police looking for man stabbing older victims in Sacramento


Two recent incidents in which older men have been stabbed while walking in the same area of Sacramento are believed to be related, police investigators say.

Both victims were treated for non-life-threatening knife wounds and released from medical care.

According to the Sacramento Police Department, the first stabbing was Monday, Aug. 18 as a 61-year-old man walked on U Street near 10th Street. The assailant was walking in the opposite direction toward the victim and stabbed him in the neck in passing.

The following Monday, Aug. 25, a 75-year-old man walking in the area of T and 10 streets was stabbed in the neck from behind.

Both victims were Asian and investigators are looking into whether that was a factor in the attacks.
