MATHER, CA (MPG) - Arriving at Mather Field by airplane and vintage jeep, ace pilot Clarence “Bud” Anderson was guest of honor at the California Capital Airshow last weekend.

The event saluted more than 100 WWII veteran attendees, whom Congressman Ami Bera called “the greatest nation’s greatest generation.” Among the hundreds of contemporary aircraft at Mather Field, prop-powered fighters from the European and Pacific theaters were soaring war birds. Over two days, their fly-pasts and barrel rolls delighted 100,000 observers at Mather Airport.

Drought Brings Families Close to Home

By Susan Maxwell Skinner
Posted: 9/11/2014

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Challenged by drought, deer families this year are grazing closer to home—our homes.

Many homes near the American River Parkway have hosted does and fawns. In gardens shade is plentiful, predators less common, and bird baths are handy troughs. Even with current sprinkler restrictions, grazing is lusher than on the parched Parkway.

Rose lovers have mixed feelings about this suburban migration. “I’m usually able to pick bouquets all summer,” bemoaned a gardener near California Ave. “This year, my buds vanish overnight and there are cloven hoofmarks in the flowerbed soil. I use deer spray (a man-made fluid resembling the odor of coyote urine), but it hardly works any more. The deer must be hungrier than ever.”

Birthday Boost for Heartthrob

Local Musician Lays Down Tracks for Hollywood Horror Film

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - It might be a great leap—nobody ever heard of Steppenwolf before Easy Rider—or a small step toward fame for baby-faced heart throb Todd Morgan. One way or another, having original songs in a movie is a super 24th birthday gift for the young performer.

“It all came out of the blue,” says the Rio Americano graduate. “The movie producers needed original music in the 1950s style. Someone I met at an LA industry trade event told them about me.”

The upcoming movie is called All American Horror. It is independently produced and stars Julia Robert’s brother, Eric Roberts. YouTube has the official trailer. As credits roll, Sacramento rock fans will recognize Morgan hammering at keyboards and singing.

Yesteryear Rests Peacefully in Fair Oaks Cemetery

By Richard Perez
Posted: 8/28/2014

FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - Picturesque Fair Oaks cemetery was founded on October 21, 1902 on a half-acre of land. Ornate headstones commemorating patriarchs lie in close proximity to simple, unnamed grave markers. The list of interments is unique; the first official resident of the grounds was Sarah Vail, a Folsom native who died in a fire and was buried in 1903. There are two other women who were buried in 1898, but Miss Vail is the first authenticated burial at Fair Oaks Cemetery.

Other gravesites include a dozen Civil War veterans from both the Union and Confederate Armies who now share a common ground. Another notable resident is Myrna Opsahl, a 42 year old mother of four who died in 1975 during an early morning bank robbery in Carmichael. She was shot by the infamous Symbionese Liberation Army. (The radical group also kidnapped and brainwashed heiress Patty Hearst during their reign of terror.) Alongside these graves are the plots of early 20th century people who are memorialized with small stone markers listing only last name and year of death. One in particular is a tiny headstone cradled amongst the roots of a large oak tree bearing the inscription: Bishop Baby - 1907. One hundred and seven years later, this little monument still brings on a melancholic sense.
