SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Walking in someone’s shoes is not always an easy thing to do, especially if you’re a man marching in women’s high heels. That’s exactly what 620 men did last spring to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault at WEAVE’s 2014 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. Through sponsorships, they raised over $237,000 to fund many programs the organization provides to victims of abuse.

I Didn’t Pay My Taxes… Now What?

Posted: 4/24/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Many of us dread April 15th. If we haven’t paid our taxes, we dread April 16th even more—the first day you owe arguably one of the most powerful collection companies in the world: the IRS. Until April 16th, it was a worry in the back of our minds. Now it is reality. For whatever reason, you didn’t pay your taxes in full or at all. You wake up the morning of the 16th with a gut-wrenching feeling, not knowing what to do. You’re not alone with this feeling. According to the IRS, just over 9 million Americans had delinquent tax accounts in fiscal year 2013.

Not only does the IRS charge penalties and interest, they also have the ability to reach into your bank account, drain your liquid assets, and take a portion of your paycheck until your debt is paid in full. What do you do?

Tim Russ to Direct Local Film

Our Goal Ultimately Is to Actually Show That There Is a Capacity Within the Filmmaking Community of Northern California to Create Film Projects

By Ben Barber
Posted: 4/17/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - For a state that is known worldwide for the entertainment industry, one might think that the Capital would be full of the hustle and bustle of filmmakers as they race the setting sun to complete their last shots of the day. Unfortunately, the contrary is true: filmmaking in Sacramento is quite the challenge. With no established infrastructure, finding local cast and crew can be a challenge, not to mention the arduous task of fundraising. This is one challenge a local project hopes to take head on.

The project is called “RELLIK” (Killer in reverse), a revolutionary new crime thriller that hopes to grow into a regularly produced series here in Sacramento. Executive Producer (EP) and spokesperson for the project, Craig DeLuz, is optimistic about the film’s success. He explains how creator and EP Jason F. Knittle and writers and EPs Brian Jagger and Gwenn Conklin came together.
