Volunteers Plant Trees to Provide Native Habitat

Posted: 6/26/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - A stark contrast between obsolete technology and urgent wildlife care will bring the non-profit Wildlife Care Association, SMUD, the Sacramento Tree Foundation, Southside Rental Equipment, and volunteers from the community to the former radar dome on the west side of McClellan Park. The old technology “palace” now houses the non-profit Wildlife Care Association, providing intake, care, and release for displaced or injured wildlife in the Sacramento region.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Carmichael Chamber of Commerce executive Linda Melody donned a construction worker’s helmet for an exclusive tour of the much-anticipated Milagro Centre.

With a forest of mature trees and fountains installed outside, indoor progress remains a mystery to future patrons of the culinary mall on Fair Oaks Boulevard. Linda Melody’s guide was developer/owner Allan Davis. The visitor admired Napa-style stonework, generous skylights, and 36,000 square feet of polished concrete floors in two vending areas. Builders are also working to complete a convention center that will allow events for 250-plus guests. Sparing no expense, Davis and his late wife, Nancy Emerson Davis, imported doors and light fixtures from Italy. The high-profile business couple planned lighting to create an atmosphere of a year-round festival in their Milagro (Spanish for miracle) development.

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.”
