State Urges Californians to Stay Safe in Extreme Heat

Posted: 7/3/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - As temperatures begin to warm up throughout the state, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Director Dr. Karen Smith advises California residents to prepare themselves for what could be a very hot, dry summer.

“Because this hot spell has come on rather suddenly, many people may be caught off guard by the warm up,” Dr. Smith said. “It is important that all Californians take precautions to prevent heat-related illness and stay hydrated.”

In areas where air quality is impacted, people with heart disease, asthma, or other respiratory diseases should minimize outdoor activities. Summer schools and programs with children who have sensitive conditions, including heart disease, asthma, and other respiratory diseases should not participate in outdoor physical activity and should stay indoors as much as possible.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Lady Antebellum has been playing together for almost nine years; this August will mark the ninth anniversary of their very first show together. In an interview with Messenger Publishing Group, Hillary Scott described the friendship that anchors the band as “a real summer camp vibe.” Scott explained that she and bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood grew up watching VH1’s Behind the Music, so they were very familiar with the all-too-typical story of successful bands breaking up over petty arguments and egotistical posturing. “So we just learned how to talk to each other, to compromise,” said Scott.

When Scott, Kelley, and Haywood began writing songs together, Scott said, “It was like I had met my musical best friends, my brothers.”
