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.”

The Crocker Art Museum Presents ‘David Ligare: California Classicist’

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - This summer, the Crocker Art Museum presents a major retrospective exhibition featuring nearly 80 works by Monterey-based contemporary artist David Ligare.

The exhibition, called “David Ligare: California Classicist,” will be on view June 7th through September 20th. A self-proclaimed Classicist, Ligare (born 1945) creates perfectly ordered still life, landscape, architectural, and figurative paintings that occupy their own poetic world. Although often grouped with California’s Photorealists, the very unreality of Ligare’s paintings and his underlying interest in antiquity belie such a label, and the perfection of his unblemished subjects and hyper-purity of his paint application seem more unearthly than real. In achieving these qualities, Ligare looks to the ancients for guidance and references the formal relationships found in Classical sculpture and architecture. And yet his paintings are firmly based in the specifics of California—and the Monterey region in particular—allowing Ligare to create art that is richly layered, broadly universal, and yet specifically of our time and place.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Sacramento-area residents have something to look forward to when Rellik premieres at the Wizard World Comic Con on June 20th. Rellik is a crime drama that follows the story of two detectives as they investigate a serial killer who is terrorizing Sacramento.

The ultimate goal is for Rellik to grow into a full-season TV show. The crew of roughly 40 people worked for deferred pay in hopes that the pilot will be picked up by an online distributor such as Netflix, Hulu, or Crackle, which would bring steady production work to the Sacramento region. The pilot features Star Trek Voyager’s Tim Russ at the helm as director; Sacramento region actors Nick Fenske, Craig DeLuz, Brian Jagger, Charlie Holliday; and many more local-area cast and crew.
