SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Fair Oaks EcoHousing, a new cohousing community of 30 homes, was unanimously approved by the Sacramento County Planning Commission on April 13th by a vote of 4-0. Not one individual showed up to object to the project. Commissioner Eric Guerra called it “a wonderful neighborhood that will raise the quality of life in Sacramento County.” This is the first time cohousing will be available in the Sacramento suburbs.

This environmentally friendly infill project is sponsored by a group of 11 local households, who are all investors as well as future residents. The project had previously received unanimous approval from the Fair Oaks Community Planning Council (CPAC) and “enthusiastic, unanimous approval” from the Sacramento County Design Review Advisory Committee (DRAC) in September 2014.

I Didn’t Pay My Taxes… Now What?

Posted: 4/24/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Many of us dread April 15th. If we haven’t paid our taxes, we dread April 16th even more—the first day you owe arguably one of the most powerful collection companies in the world: the IRS. Until April 16th, it was a worry in the back of our minds. Now it is reality. For whatever reason, you didn’t pay your taxes in full or at all. You wake up the morning of the 16th with a gut-wrenching feeling, not knowing what to do. You’re not alone with this feeling. According to the IRS, just over 9 million Americans had delinquent tax accounts in fiscal year 2013.

Not only does the IRS charge penalties and interest, they also have the ability to reach into your bank account, drain your liquid assets, and take a portion of your paycheck until your debt is paid in full. What do you do?

Tim Russ to Direct Local Film

Our Goal Ultimately Is to Actually Show That There Is a Capacity Within the Filmmaking Community of Northern California to Create Film Projects

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - For a state that is known worldwide for the entertainment industry, one might think that the Capital would be full of the hustle and bustle of filmmakers as they race the setting sun to complete their last shots of the day. Unfortunately, the contrary is true: filmmaking in Sacramento is quite the challenge. With no established infrastructure, finding local cast and crew can be a challenge, not to mention the arduous task of fundraising. This is one challenge a local project hopes to take head on.

The project is called “RELLIK” (Killer in reverse), a revolutionary new crime thriller that hopes to grow into a regularly produced series here in Sacramento. Executive Producer (EP) and spokesperson for the project, Craig DeLuz, is optimistic about the film’s success. He explains how creator and EP Jason F. Knittle and writers and EPs Brian Jagger and Gwenn Conklin came together.
