(Courtesy: Peggy Engard) But now, since the coronavirus pandemic, Engard’s passion for sewing has taken on a whole new purpose. “I just think I’m just one of many people that want to give back,” she said. Back in March, Engard’s routine trip to JOANN Fabrics and Crafts took a turn when she encountered her first mask-making kit. She immediately knew it was her opportunity to put her skills to work and help fight the spread of coronavirus. “I put a call out to friends that were seamstresses and would like to help me, you know, just make masks for charity,” she said. “And so I got a call back from Cynthia Corley and Kathy Gordon, who are my dream seam team, and we just went to work making masks like…

Costa Mesa Mayor Announces Board of Supervisors Run

Share this article:As expected, Costa Mesa Mayor Katrina Foley Thursday announced she would run for the Orange County Board of Supervisors when Michelle Steel resigns to take her seat in Congress. “Orange County can’t afford to look backward, and the status quo within the county government is no longer good enough,” Foley said in a statement. “I am running for supervisor to use facts and science to protect public health, implement common sense solutions to help local businesses and workers recover, and find new ideas to solve the unprecedented problems we face.” Former Orange County Supervisor John Moorlach has also announced he will run to try to succeed Steel.

Republicans have been clearing the field for Moorlach to have a one-on-one with Foley, a Democrat. Foley, who was re-elected mayor last month, touted her…

West Sac VFW Post Steps Up To Continue Program Started By Rancho Cordova Counterpart

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Boxes upon boxes and plenty of appliances filled the storage units belonging to Frank Squire and the Rancho Cordova VFW post. The items are to help homeless veterans and their families, who have recently found permanent housing through the local heart to home program. “The government doesn’t do enough for veterans, especially homeless veterans. And we’ve tried to kind of step in between and provide something,” Squire said. Plenty of things filled seven storage units – everything from silverware and furniture to coffee makers and even some wall art. The program’s goal is to provide these household items to turn a veteran’s new house into a home. Sharon Cox knows the feeling firsthand. Cox and her family, including her U.S. Army veteran husband, were given furniture and a washer and dryer from Squire. The family moved into their new house at the end of April. “It’s the difference between comfort and not. You’ve been sitting on a ledge long enough, especially with three little ones, it makes it really difficult,” Cox said. “Everyone’s situation is different but, it’s going to affect everyone…

Jewish Doctor’s Story Of Treating Coronavirus Patient With Nazi Tattoos Goes Viral

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — What’s it like for a Jewish doctor to treat a coronavirus patient covered with Nazi Tattoos? One Sacramento doctor shared a moment of struggle on Twitter, and his story is now going viral. “Some of my favorite conversations with patients have been, just about that, talking to them about their tattoos,” said Dr. Taylor Nichols. Dr. Nichols, a Jewish doctor in Sacramento, says he’s cared for patients with offensive tattoos before, but two weeks ago, for the first time, he questioned his compassion. “It’s a symbol of hate, it challenged me a bit,” he said. On Twitter, Dr. Nichols describes the encounter. The older man arrived by ambulance, struggling to breathe, and told Dr. Nichols, “Don’t let me die, doc.” As his shirt came off and he was put on a breathing machine, the man’s SS and swastika tattoos broadly on display.

The swastika stood out boldly on his chest. SS tattoos…
