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. Moorlach served on the board from 2006-15 when he was termed out, prompting him to run for state Senate and win a special election in 2015. Moorlach narrowly lost his bid for re-election to UC Irvine law professor Dave Min. Moorlach recently won the endorsement of the Orange County Republican Party. 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. Dr. Nichols promised he’d do his best. He was solidly built. Older. His methamphetamine use over the years had taken its usual toll and his teeth were all but gone. The swastika stood out boldly on his chest. SS tattoos…

Firefighters Conduct Live-Fire Drill Off Elkhorn Boulevard

With the new wildfire in SoCal, it’s proof California fire season is extending into the holiday season. And that’s why firefighters are constantly training to be on the ready this morning they had a unique opportunity. Dozens of firefighters were part of a live-fire training drill this morning off at a home along Elkhorn Boulevard. The house was donated for the exercise. Officials say an actual structure is better than a shipping container—typically used at their practice facility because they can train on ventilating the roof to let out gases and smoke and they can conduct a simulated search for a victim going room to room. And this year—they need to be ready. Due to dry conditions, they are still seeing wildfires. Capt. Frank Villalpando with Sacramento Fire said “There’s always a possibility to have a fire in December. The fire conditions in California this time of year are such that you can’t let your guard down. Our crews are always ready, but we can always learn a little bit. We have a saying. We’re never too old on the job to learn something new…

Large COVID-19 Outbreak at Granada Rehab and Wellness Facility

Humboldt County Public Health has confirmed a COVID-19 outbreak of 30 people at the Granada Rehab and Wellness skilled nursing facility in Eureka. One employee and 29 residents have tested positive for the novel coronavirus at the 87-bed facility. The outbreak was detected by a recent routine state-required COVID-19 testing after a staff member tested positive public health then expanded the test to every person in the facility, which has turned up 29 positive cases so far. “Experts in infection control from Public Health and CDPH are assisting the facility in containing the outbreak, including on-site support. Public Health will provide ongoing testing of all staff and residents and additional expertise as needed,” the release states.
