Tale Of Two Towns: More Businesses Open In El Dorado Hills While Folsom Stays Under Tight Restrictions

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Folsom and El Dorado Hills share a border but are each living under a totally different set of rules in the state’s reopening plan. Sacramento County is still in the most restrictive purple tier, while El Dorado County is moving from the red to orange tier. The new tier allows for more businesses to reopen, including some indoor operations.

NEVADA CITY (CBS13) — Police in Nevada Ciy are sounding the alarm over potential violent protests advertised on social media.

Dickerson’s Pinch-Hit Homer Helps Keep Giants In Playoff Mix

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The San Francisco Giants got some timely swings off the bench to stay right in the playoff race. Pinch-hitter Alex Dickerson connected for a go-ahead homer in the seventh and Austin Slater also went deep, helping the Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Tuesday night. Dickerson hit his first pinch-hit homer since exactly four years earlier on Sept. 22, 2016, with San Diego against the Giants at Petco Park. It was his 10th homer that season, and his 10th this year. It has been quite a two weeks for Dickerson, from a false-positive test result for COVID-19 that postponed a pair of games in his hometown of San Diego to just returning from the paternity list after he and wife, Jennifer, welcomed son, Levi. “I think he’s making really good decisions, I think he’s seeing the ball really well, I think he has a ton of confidence right now,” manager Gabe Kapler said. San Francisco is one of four teams chasing the final two NL playoff spots. Philadelphia (27-29) lost its fourth straight game after a doubleheader sweep by Washington,…

Former ‘Davis Police Officer Of The Year’ Trevor Edens Accused Of Stealing Public Money

DAVIS (CBS13) — A former Davis police sergeant once heralded as officer of the year is now accused of being on the wrong side of the law, stealing public funds while on duty. Trevor Edens overcame losing part of his leg in a motorcycle crash and returned to duty in 2009 to earn “Davis Police Officer of the Year.” Now he’s facing possible jail time. A 2008 photo shows Edens in a wheelchair, recovering from a motorcycle crash that forced doctors to amputate part of his leg. Now a twist to that inspiration — he’s in big trouble. “Charges were filed against Trevor Edens,” Davis Police Deputy Chief Paul Doroshov said. A criminal complaint shows Edens is now facing a felony public officer crime charge of misappropriating public funds. According to the complaint, Edens was “charged with the receipt, safekeeping, transfer and distribution of public moneys,” but instead took that public money “for personal use.” READ: Two Colorful Iguanas, Siracha And Squiggy, Stolen From Newcastle Animal Sanctuary “We started off as an internal investigation in the fall of 2018 when other officers that sergeant Edens supervised…

Review: ‘Console Wars’ relives bitter ’90s video game rivalry and cultural upheaval

Video game documentaries were rare a decade ago. One reason for that is the medium and its audience were relatively young. Stories were still unfolding and the outstanding news still hadn’t gotten the patina of history yet. That has changed recently as filmmakers uncovered compelling narratives while peeking behind the industry curtains. The “High Score” Netflix series provided a multifaceted look at the origins of video games and several genres. “King of Kong” introduced viewers to the world of retro video game competitions. “Atari: Game Over” looked at the rise and fall of the pioneering company. As these documentaries show, video game history is fascinating, and some of the best stories to emerge come from the 1990s. Author Blake J. Harris wrote about the defining conflict of many kids’ childhoods — Nintendo vs. Sega — in “Console Wars,” and with the help of Jonah Tulis, he produced a documentary based on his book. The film, out Sept. 23 on CBS All Access, follows the general path of the written work. It’s an underdog story describing how Sega rose from obscurity to challenge the near monopoly…

Berkeley first to pass ‘healthy checkout’ ordinance at grocery stores

BERKELEY — The city of Berkeley may be the first in the nation, if not the world, to pass a policy  that will eliminate junk food and unhealthy items at grocery store check-out lines. Grocery stores bigger than 2,500 square feet will no longer be allowed to sell unhealthy food and beverages at the check-out line, and instead are encouraged to offer more nutritious food and drink. Gone would be the soda, chips, candy bars and other sweetened beverages: only food items with no more than 5 grams of added sugars or 250 milligrams of sodium per serving would be allowed. “It’s not a ban, it’s a nudge,” said council member Kate Harrison, who co-authored the ordinance. City Council passed the ordinance unanimously at its Tuesday night meeting. A total of 25 retailers throughout the city would have to adhere to the ordinance including stores such as Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and the Berkeley Bowl. Proponents of the ordinance say the check-out line not only targets children and sugary, unhealthy eating habits–but adults as well. Simone Dasilva, a nutritionist with Berkeley Youth Alternatives, weighed…

CZU Lightning Complex Fire fully contained

The CZU Lightning Complex Fire was fully contained Tuesday night, authorities said. The blaze broke out the morning of Aug. 16 and burned 86,509 acres in San Mateo and Santa Cruz counties, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Prevention. One person was killed and another was injured in the fire. Cal Fire said the blaze also destroyed 1,490 structures, including 925 single-family homes. Thousands of residents in the Santa Cruz Mountains were forced to flee as crews struggled to fight the fire in rugged terrain. About 1,000 people were still evacuated as of Tuesday. “Repopulation efforts continue to be complicated in portions of the fire area by closed roads, damaged utilities and compromised trees,” Cal Fire said in an incident update. Crews, meanwhile, are keeping a watchful eye on the fire. “Remember, contained is not controlled,” the Cal Fire San Mateo-Santa Cruz Unit said in a tweet announcing the news. “We will continue to monitor this fire for smoldering areas.” Related Articles Discovery Channel embeds with California firefighters in new series ‘Cal Fire’ Wildfire-weary Californians, ‘tired of this being normal,’ consider uprooting…
