James Dean's "Rebel Without a Cause" car now in Sacramento

From the California Automobile Museum.

During the height of baseball season, the California Automobile Museum of Sacramento and the National Automobile Museum of Reno entered into a friendly wager around a sixteen-game series pitting the local minor league baseball team, the River Cats, against the Reno Aces.

The bet was that the auto museum in the city of the team that lost the series would loan a famous car from its collection to the museum in the winning city.

If the River Cats won, the 1949 Mercury driven by James Dean in the 1955 movie Rebel Without a Cause would be loaned to the California Automobile Museum. If the Aces won, the National Automobile Museum would be loaned a 1932 Ford raced by legendary driver A.J. Foyt.

City begins 2011 road resurfacing work

 City begins 2011 road resurfacing work; some major streets postponed until next spring

The City of Sacramento Department of Transportation is starting road resurfacing work throughout the City to keep the pavement as close as possible to its newly constructed condition. There may be minor traffic delays and inconvenience, however, when completed the streets will be in nearly new condition.

The department aims to resurface every street in the City about once every ten years to maintain the quality of City streets in a cost effective manner with available funds. 

This month, work is starting in South Natomas. See the first week’s schedule. The schedule is subject to change. Check to see if your street is going to be resurfaced and when, via a tentative schedule that is posted weekly here.

A Swing and a Hit Along West Capitol Ave

As part of West Sacramento's redevelopment project, standing tall along the east end of the newly landscaped West Capitol Avenue, between City Hall and the Civic Center, cast your eyes on a pair of giant bronze sculptures.  A pitcher and a batter, both complimenting nearby Raley Field.  City proud and winning!
