CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - After Sacramento performances of A Chorus Line, an elite gang awaited Kate Levering. Cousins, nieces, nephews, mom, grandmamma, and flocks of old dancing chums bolstered the dancer’s stage-door fans.

Indeed, home town connections were what spurred the Los Angeles-based star to take her recent Music Circus role. “It was more about my family than a professional choice,” she explained. “I want my 90-year-old grandmother and my nieces and nephews to see me on stage before I get too old.”

Carmichael Honors Glorious 4th

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - A thousand sizzling patriots last week joined the Carmichael Elk’s July 4th pageant. Hot as it seemed, Fair Oaks Boulevard was 15 degrees cooler this year than 2013’s tar-melting 110 degrees.

Hugging the shade, many thousands of sidewalk patriots cheered the spectacle’s 56th year. Paul Scholl was this year’s Grand Marshal. Scholl, Carmichael Times publisher, is a community leader whose late mother was Grand Marshal for Fairfield’s 2008 parade. Celebrating his own July 4th birthday, Scholl said the Carmichael occasion was a “reminder from my parents never to forget the duty to serve others.”

Job Demand Hiring Trends for Local Companies in the 3rd Quarter

Posted: 7/10/2014

Job Seekers Look to the Future
A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014. In a direct telephone survey of Sacramento’s top regional employers, fifty percent (50%) say hiring is motivated by expansion of existing workforces, and eleven percent (11%) also attributed seasonal demands for seeking workers in July, September and October.

Attrition, or replacements among the existing workforce motivated the other half expecting to see applicants. Pacific Staffing discovered just twenty-nine percent (29%) of Sacramento companies contacted directly between May 21st and June 11th are not hiring. While service and manufacturing companies were driving the majority of hiring anticipated in the third quarter, construction firms were almost evenly split, and just one retail firm surveyed was not looking for help. Also signaling continued robust employment in the area, not one company noted any plans for layoffs in the next quarter. Several firms also mention that retention of current workers was a growing concern and noted finding adequate numbers of qualified applicants as another challenge.

The Climate Wizard indirect evaporative cooling system helps Tri Tool, a large industrial facility in Rancho Cordova, keep cooling costs down. Climate Wizard is a type of “swamp cooler” that is very high performance, using 80 percent less energy than conventional industrial HVAC systems without adding any humidity.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - One thing is certain in Sacramento during the summer, the weather will be hot and dry and temperatures will hit triple digits. It is certainly a challenge to stay cool. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) is testing a new type of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technology that borrows from and builds on some tried and true techniques to deliver improved cooling performance.

The technology uses indirect evaporative cooling, yes, a kind of “swamp cooler” but very high performance using 80 percent less energy than conventional industrial HVAC systems without adding any humidity. It’s called Climate Wizard and one of SMUD’s largest industrial customers, Tri Tool in Rancho Cordova, is supporting SMUD’s research and development to test it in this challenging manufacturing environment.
