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. It’s starting to look like business as usual at El Dorado County Town Center, according to Shawnee Thompson who works at Tan Central at the outdoor mall. “It’s busy everywhere, the nail salons, they are always busy, you just see more people walking around enjoying themselves,” said Thompson. Thompson said business has picked up at not only her store, but throughout the entire mall.

El Dorado County’s new looser restrictions allow for indoor dining, outside bars and increased capacity at gyms like Orange Theory at the El Dorado Town Center. The same…

Nevada City Police Warn Of Violent Protests Advertised Online

NEVADA CITY (CBS13) — Police in Nevada Ciy are sounding the alarm over potential violent protests advertised on social media. The department took to social media Tuesday, sharing the virtual flyers, some of which have detailed instructions on how to prevent officers from making arrests, by surrounding them in groups. Police say some peaceful events were planned for the weekend but were postponed when investigators showed them the posts. Last month, the Nevada City Police Department was criticized for not doing enough to stop a violent clash at a Black Lives Matter protest. The department admitted they were not prepared and said several arrests have been made since. READ MORE: Nevada City Counter-Protester Arrested After Violence At Black Lives Matter Protest

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…

Pinch-hit heroics move Giants back to .500, Dickerson delivers go-ahead home run to beat Rockies

SAN FRANCISCO — Before the San Francisco Giants even took the field on Tuesday at Oracle Park, the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals did them a huge favor. The Nationals aren’t fighting for a playoff spot, but they did fight to keep the Philadelphia Phillies –a top wild card contender– out of one by sweeping a doubleheader on Tuesday. With a chance to gain an edge over the 27-29 Phillies and match the winning percentages of the .500 Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers, the Giants rallied late to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2. After former Giants outfielder Kevin Pillar tied the game 2-2 with a RBI double in the seventh, pinch-hitter Alex Dickerson came off the bench in the bottom of the inning and drilled his 10th home run of the season out to center field to give San Francisco a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Exactly four years after hitting his last pinch-hit home run, Dickerson keyed a three-run frame that also included a two-run double from pinch-hitter Brandon Belt. Manager Gabe Kapler knew the Rockies weren’t carrying a left-handed pitcher in their bullpen…

Frankie Montas may not be ready for a best-of-three postseason start

The home runs seemed to come in rapid fire. First Max Muncy pummeled a slider. Chris Taylor hit a fastball a bit harder into the seats. Perhaps by the time AJ Pollock’s homer slithered right over the right field fence, Frankie Montas had pitched himself out of contention as a postseason starter. The A’s lost their series opener to the Dodgers in Los Angeles, 7-2. They faced an electric arm in rookie Dustin May, who blew 100 mph fastballs and a killer curveball past them. Robbie Grossman hacked at a 98 mph fastball that had enough gusto from the pitch velocity and Grossman himself that it sailed the other way and into the foul pole for a home run. Sean Murphy manufactured the A’s second run after drawing a walk and traveling on a couple ground balls and a wild pitch. Montas couldn’t quite match May’s un-hittable energy, allowing five runs in four innings on seven hits with three strikeouts. Of course, the scuffle came against a strong team in the Dodgers. That lineup can stick it to any and all starters on any given…

To all the cars I drove before

We have a new car in the family; at least it is new to us. A 2019 Lexus RX 350 model with about 10,000 miles under its fan belt, this little baby has every bell and whistle one could hope for. In fact, this little baby has bells and whistles that will never ring or chime. As a child, I grew up in a home without a father or a car. Looking back, I think there were times in my life that I missed having a car more than I missed having a father. When I was about 13 years old, my older brother Don acquired an old Chevy panel truck that he kept parked in our back yard, across from Red Bluff High School. I can remember like it was yesterday sneaking out to that old truck and starting it with the starter on the floor. I can still hear the grinding sound as I shifted into unknown gears and lurched forward or back a foot or two before the darn thing died, and I quickly made my escape before being discovered. When I…

Boughner, Wilson explain how they plan to bring Sharks back to contention

Bob Boughner said he plans to implement changes to the way the San Jose Sharks play in all three zones — tailoring his systems to best maximize the talent he will have available on the roster next season. As an example, all Boughner has to do is point to the success of the Dallas Stars — a Stanley Cup finalist whose blue-collar, structured style of play is largely built around the players they have acquired. “As a coach, you look at your personnel, and you say, ‘OK, what kind of team are we,” Boughner said, “and then you create the style of play that you think is going to be most successful for that personnel.” More than nine months after he was named interim coach, Boughner, as expected, was officially named the ninth full-time head coach in Sharks history on Tuesday by general manager Doug Wilson. Rocky Thompson, who coached the Chicago Wolves in the AHL from 2017 to 2020, has joined Boughner’s staff as an associate coach and John Madden, a three-time Cup winner as a player with New Jersey, is an assistant coach.…
