  • Placer County Promotions Filling Hotel RoomsPlacer County Promotions Filling Hotel Rooms

    PLACER COUNTY (CBS13) — It’s getting tougher to find a vacancy in some Placer County hotels. Last year, there were 25,000 more room nights booked, and now they’re looking for more beds. So, what’s causing the tourism boom in Placer County? CBS13 found out a multi-million dollar effort to attract more tourism has been so successful, that hotels are running out of rooms. Hotels in Roseville and other parts of South Placer County are seeing a big boost in business. Ron Berger, Best Western regional general manager said, “The growth has just been phenomenal. We’ve seen year after year more tourism coming in.” Since last year, there’s been a six percent increase in customers. “A lot of times we can’t accommodate all the groups. A lot of times in May or June, you can’t get a hotel in Placer County.” To keep up, construction is underway on a new four-story hotel along Highway 65, with two more expected in the next year. Placer Valley Tourism CEO David Attaway says the increase is no accident. Attaway said, “We’ve gotten very good at sports tourism.” And they’re trying to recruit more diverse events. The list is long – everything from cup stacking to a Rubik’s Cube tournament, with each guest helping boost the local economy. “The guest spends on food or shopping, so it’s really dispersed throughout the entire community,” said Attaway. To accommodate the increase, they’ve spent $9 million renovating the 80-year-old Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville, now been re-branded as “The Grounds.” “The basics are here to do virtually anything you want to do.” Work is now underway to design a new 130,000 square foot event center that can accommodate much larger tournaments. “Ultimately the buildout will have 15 basketball courts or 30 volleyball courts,” said Attaway. Hotel operators say the new events will help boost business during the slower winter months and they hope all these new customers will keep coming back to Placer. Berger said, “It’s become the new hidden gem of Northern California.” The majority of the money for marketing and renovations comes from a $6.50 per night fee added to each hotel bill, which generates nearly $4 million a year.

  • Hawaii Missile Warning Scare Not Likely To Happen In CaliforniaHawaii Missile Warning Scare Not Likely To Happen In California

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A false alarm sent out by Hawaii’s Office of Emergency Management created chaos and panic for nearly 40 minutes. “A missile may impact on land or sea within minutes. This is not a drill,” sounded the message that aired on radio and tv sets. The mistake rattled the millions of residents and guests. People ran for their lives, while others huddled in closets. “For at least two hours afterwards, I was shaking. It was scary, very scary,” said one resort guest. According to Hawaiian authorities, a state employee clicked the wrong button, twice. It was supposed to be a drill, but he sounded the alarm for the real thing. “It’s embarrassing, but again. It’s a mistake,” said Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Vern Miyagi. In California, more than one person is in charge of the emergency alert system. “Multiple levels of safeguards and confirmation that information is accurate and that we’re using appropriate systems,” said Brad Alexander with the Office of Emergency Services He says they use text messages, radio and TV signals and social media to reach the public during disasters, like the flooding and fires in southern California. “We need to get that information out as broadly and as widely and as many avenues as possible,” said Alexander. The false alarm in the Aloha State may be a wakeup call to the majority of Californian’s who are not ready for a disaster. “Even the simplest things, folks may not be prepared for to respond in very short notice,” Alexander explained. Alexander says every family needs an action plan, including a list of who to contact, and a survival kit with food, water, and medication. CalOES didn’t comment on what to do in the case of a real ballistic nuclear threat. But experts with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory say the best thing to do is stay indoors. Find a central room or a basement. Do not go outside or get in your car. They say to shelter in place for 12 to 24 hours in order to avoid coming into contact with any of the nuclear side effects.

  • Natomas Boy’s 911 Call Draws Heroic PraiseNatomas Boy’s 911 Call Draws Heroic Praise

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Natomas boy is being hailed a hero by the police department for his courageous 911 call. Just two weeks on the job and officially on her own, Caitlyn Hutchins received the distressing call. “I hear them keep going and running through the garage, somebody,” the young man told Hutchins. “Are you somewhere safe in the house?” she asked. “Yes, I’m in my mom and dad’s room locked, locked their door, and I put my brothers in the closet,” he told her. The voice behind the frantic call was 12-year-old DJ Simmons Jr. He and his 6- and 9-year-old brothers were home alone. “I was nervous about anybody trying to get into the house because I’ve never dealt with this before and I was just trying to make sure everybody was safe,” DJ said. His parents were at a doctor’s appointment for brother No. 4, soon to be born. “Terrifying. I started crying of course and started praying,” Turns out it wasn’t a burglar, but instead a freak accident. Someone crashed into their garage. “Making sure his younger brothers were safe and that no one got to them. It’s great thinking; not many kids think that far ahead,” Hutchins said. She added the call was perhaps just as scary on her end. “I can’t believe I got a call that serious and could’ve ended so badly so quickly,” she said. His parents can’t be more proud. “Him remembering everything and under that pressure, it was real good,” said Dexter Simmons, DJ’s dad. It’s the emergency you can always prepare for, but it’s about how you react that matters. “He should be so proud of himself. There’s not anything I could think of that would give him a high enough praise, but wow,” Hutchins said. And after saving his brothers, DJ definitely has his priorities straight. “It’s been dramatic, but at the same time it was fun because, in the end, I got to see a game,” DJ said. He and his family were honored by the Sacramento Kings at the Golden 1 Center and got a suite to see the Harlem Globetrotters. And it doesn’t stop there; the police department was so impressed that they entered DJ’s call into the 911 Heroes Award Contest.

  • Proposed Rancho Cordova Kid’s Camp Drawing CriticismProposed Rancho Cordova Kid’s Camp Drawing Criticism

    RANCHO CORDOVA (CBS13) — A proposed Rancho Cordova childcare center is getting pushback from neighboring landowners who say it’s bad for business. The proposed childcare center is called Kid’s Camp, and it would be housed in a strip mall on Zinfandel Drive. The sign reads “coming soon.” Only now its location is being challenged. A neighboring landowner is appealing to Rancho Cordova’s City Council, claiming the daycare here is unsafe and will drop the value of surrounding development. “This is ridiculous,” childcare center opponent Peter Von Elten said, “It’s not only an economy factor, but it’s a safety factor.” Von Elten represents the landowners appealing the city council, arguing this location’s heavy traffic is unsafe for children and that a childcare center in the strip mall will prevent future restaurants from obtaining new liquor licenses. “The alcoholic beverage control has the flexibility to deny a property owner a liquor license serving alcohol within 600 feet of a facility that primarily involves children,” Von Elten said. The co-owner of Kid’s Camp issued a statement defending the chosen location of the busy Rancho Cordova commercial hub. “Its basically the intersection of Highway 50, Zinfandel Drive, and Sunrise Boulevard,” Cameron Emami said. “The population is there, and the children are there.” Kid’s Camp owners also operate six other centers around the Sacramento region. This new location would operate seven days a week and stay open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The politics of children’s playtime. The future of this Kid’s Camp now depends on a decision by the Rancho Cordova City Council. The council is expected to decide on the fate of the childcare center location on Tuesday.

  • Lottery Brings Hope For Low-Income Families Facing Sacramento’s Rising RentsLottery Brings Hope For Low-Income Families Facing Sacramento’s Rising Rents

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Starting Tuesday night, thousands of people in Sacramento County will be taking a chance on a lottery for subsidized housing. The county’s Redevelopment Agency and Housing Authority will open the wait list for a voucher program that will serve local low-income families who can’t afford the high rents. The waitlist program was last opened was in 2014. At that time more than 45,000 people applied for just 5,000 slots, and now the housing market has gotten so rough in the county that even more people are expected to apply. “When you’re renting from landlords, you’re staying at their mercy,” said Barbara Raney-Clark. Clark lives with her husband, a disabled veteran and two grandchildren. She says she and her family struggle to stay afloat. “We can barely make it, we can barely make it,” said Clark. She is one of the thousands of people who plan to go online and apply at a time when the county faces an affordable housing crisis. “My husband is a 71-year-old disabled veteran, and he has his health challenges,” she said. With rising rents and a growing homeless population, this year’s housing lottery is expected to be competitive. “Know there will probably be 50,000 people applying for the vouchers,” said Rachel Iskow, former CEP of Sacramento Mutual Housing. And only 7,000 spots are available on the housing authority’s waiting list. So here’s what you need to know: Apply online- between midnight Tuesday night and Jan. 30 at www.sacwaitlist.com Eligibility is based mainly on income, so, a family of three can earn no more than about $33,000 per year. Families who are homeless, rent burdened, military veterans, or disabled, will receive priority. “You only have to pay 30 percent of your monthly income for rent, and the voucher will pay the landlord the rest of the rent. Housing advocate Rachel Iskow says finding landlords who will accept the vouchers once you get them, is the next challenge. But people like Barbara Clark are keeping hopes high. “I’m happy I get to apply, and I can just hope and pray that our names come up,” said Clark. Iskow says if you’re struggling and not sure if you qualify, just apply. And even if you’re lucky enough to land a spot on the waitlist, it may take a couple of years before housing becomes available.

  • Search On For Ex-Boyfriend After Missing Woman Found Dead In CarSearch On For Ex-Boyfriend After Missing Woman Found Dead In Car

    COLUSA (CBS13) — Karen Garcia was found dead on Sunday nearly a week after her family reported her missing. Her ex-boyfriend, Salvador Garcia, Jr., sat down for an interview with CBS13 four days earlier, saying he was committed to finding her. “I’m just trying my best to stay strong,” he told CBS 13 on Wednesday. “I tried calling her, sent her a message to let her know that her mom was worried, no reply.” Now, five days after his emotional interview, Colusa Police are searching for Salvador and suspect he’s responsible for Karen Garcia’s murder. RAW VIDEO: Interview With Suspect In Homicide Of Missing Woman Found Dead In Woodland Karen was last seen on Jan. 8 leaving the Colusa apartment she shared with Salvador and their 2-year-old daughter, Avianna. On Saturday, officers with Colusa Police Department searched the Oak Street apartment. Inside, they found blood, indicating foul play. The next day, the Department of Justice found traces of blood in Salvador’s car. At around 3:45 p.m. on Sunday, Karen’s body was found in her blue Honda in the parking lot of a Marshall’s in Woodland. “It looked like an upscale enough car that no one was just going to leave it there,” said Troy Parrish, who saw the car on Friday. Colusa Police are now scouring through surveillance video from Woodland to find any leads on where Salvador might be hiding. Adrianna Floriano lives near the Garcia family and told CBS13 she can’t believe Salvador is a suspect. “Yeah, it’s terrible,” she said. “He went to the school with my son and was like a good boy!” “I want to know why!” said JoAnne Burnett, who lives in Williams. “Why did she deserve this? She’s only 21 years old, she has a child that’s 2 years old; she has a life to live; she has a mother that needs her, and it’s not fair!” “I know she feels pretty bad,” Floriano said. The Garcia family held a viewing Monday night for their other daughter 19-year-old Jessica Garcia, who was killed in a collision in Woodland on Jan. 7. A funeral service is planned for Jessica Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock the Church of Annunciation in Williams.

  • Sacramento Kings Come Up Short In Oklahoma CitySacramento Kings Come Up Short In Oklahoma City

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The third quarter has often been a problem for the Oklahoma City Thunder this season, but that’s when they made their move Monday night against the Sacramento Kings. Russell Westbrook had 19 points, 16 rebounds and nine assists before being ejected, and Oklahoma City rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to beat Sacramento 95-88. Carmelo Anthony added 20 points, Paul George scored 18 and Steven Adams had 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder, who avoided what would have been a fourth straight home loss thanks in large part to a dominant third quarter in which they outscored the Kings 31-16. “We were definitely more focused,” George said. “We’ve been in this position where we played a sub-.500 team and for whatever reason, we tried to turn it on and win the ballgame late in the fourth. Tonight we took it at them early, got that cushion and that carried us through the finish.” Buddy Hield scored 16 points and Willie Cauley-Stein added 15 for Sacramento, which scored only 36 second-half points and is 1-16 on the road against Oklahoma City since the Thunder franchise moved from Seattle. Oklahoma City was up 91-77 with 2:51 left before official Matt Boland called two quick technical fouls on Westbrook after he complained about being called for traveling on a play on which he thought he’d been fouled. Another official, Gediminas Petraitis, then called a technical foul on Thunder coach Billy Donovan for protesting Westbrook’s ejection. Hield made all three technical free throws and Cauley-Stein went 1 of 2 from the line with 2:35 left, pulling Sacramento to 91-84. But the Kings made only one field goal the rest of the way, and George blocked a shot and came up with a steal in the final two minutes. “Melo, he was able to score about 15 points that (third) quarter,” Hield said. “He was helping open up the gap for him. (Westbrook) started making plays for everybody else. We got it back under 10, but we’ve got to be a little more experienced and a little more controlled. We’ve got to do better at executing late. We have to do a better job at helping each other out and make plays down the stretch.” The Kings led 24-20 after the first quarter and stretched their advantage to 48-33 after two free throws by Bogdan Bogdanovic with 3:03 left in the half. The Thunder closed the half on an 11-3 spurt to pull to 52-46. The Thunder seized control with an 11-0 run in the third quarter, highlighted by consecutive alley-oop passes from Westbrook for dunks – first to Anthony, then to Adams. Anthony’s two free throws put Oklahoma City ahead 75-66 with 1:39 left in the quarter. “We just had to decide that we wanted to play (and) pick it up, take it up another level,” Anthony said. “Once we decided we wanted to do that in the second half, we changed the outcome of the game.” After the teams went scoreless for the first three-plus minutes of the fourth, Sacramento pulled within seven on a basket by Cauley-Stein, but Patrick Patterson hit two 3-pointers in a 17-second span and Alex Abrines followed with another to extend the Thunder’s lead to 86-70. TIP-INS Kings: Hield traveled back to Norman on Sunday to visit practice at No. 4 Oklahoma. Hield led the Sooners to the 2016 Final Four. … The Kings, who beat the Thunder on Nov. 7 in Sacramento, haven’t won two straight over the Oklahoma City franchise since the 2007-08 season, when the team was in Seattle. … The Kings made 15 of 25 free throws, while the Thunder went 14 of 29 from the line. Thunder: Ace defender Andre Roberson sat out for the eighth straight game with patellar tendinitis in his left knee. … For the 14th straight game, Westbrook recorded a double-double with at least 20 points. The only guard in NBA history to have a longer such streak was Michael Jordan, with 15 straight in 1989. … George, the NBA steals leader, had five. … Westbrook’s 16 rebounds were three off his career high. … At halftime, the team showed a video with Thunder players reciting excerpts from Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have A Dream” speech. THE EJECTION With Oklahoma City up by 14 and the game seemingly under control, Westbrook looked to finish it off with a driving layup, but collided with Cauley-Stein as De’Aaron Fox appeared to hit Westbrook in the face. Boland ruled that Westbrook had traveled, setting off the slew of technical fouls. Westbrook didn’t stick around to answer questions after the game, but Donovan said Petraitis later apologized to him for calling the technical foul on the coach. “The official made a terrible mistake and he acknowledged it,” Donovan said. “I was yelling to the other official across the floor to get his attention and (Petraitis) just T’d me up. He came by and apologized to me. I definitely didn’t deserve a T. . I’ve been doing this long enough, I know when I’m close to getting a T and when I deserve a T. That was totally undeserved and should not have been called.” UP NEXT Kings: Host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday before embarking on a six-game road trip.

  • Protesters Take To Sacramento Streets In Name Of Martin Luther King, Jr.Protesters Take To Sacramento Streets In Name Of Martin Luther King, Jr.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Protesters took to the streets of Sacramento in an alternative to the typical Martin Luther King Day march. “I think the dream got out of wack and we have to reclaim that dream,” said Ava Nada. She took the streets Monday, to “reclaim MLK Day” to remind people she says, that Martin Luther King wouldn’t have stood for the racial inequality damaging our society. “I came from segregation at five and a half… and it’s a passion to see that we can all be as one,” she said. But the march she participated in is unlike anything you’ll see at traditional, celebratory MLK marches honoring the civil rights icon’s legacy. “If we don’t get no justice, they don’t get no peace,” activists chanted. Black Lives Matters activists say they’re demanding justice for African-American men shot by police. Their signs read, “hands up, don’t shoot.” “If we don’t get it. Shut it down,” they said. Activists shut down J Street in downtown, turning traffic away. “I think Marin Luther King would be right here with us,” said one protestor. Sacramento Police say the group didn’t obtain a permit to protest and they monitored the crowd, but didn’t comment on their message. “I mean, Dr. King was a victim of police brutality. Now we have the police chief and sheriff supporting the other march. Martin Luther King would have never stood for that,” said Elika Bernard. People from all walks of life marched, in solidarity. “Our streets. Our streets,” they chanted. Rabbi Seth Castleman didn’t carry a sign. He carried his newborn baby to make his point. “There’s no time too early for them to experience it. There’s no other place to be. If one person’s oppressed, we’re all oppressed,” he said. Ava Nada says she couldn’t agree more. “We have so many young people now who don’t know the issue, but they’re living it now,” she said.

  • New California Declares Independence From Rest Of StateNew California Declares Independence From Rest Of State

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood. To be clear, they don’t want to leave the United States, just California. “Well, it’s been ungovernable for a long time. High taxes, education, you name it, and we’re rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California,” said founder Robert Paul Preston. The state of New California would incorporate most of the state’s rural counties, leaving the urban coastal counties to the current state of California. “There’s something wrong when you have a rural county such as this one, and you go down to Orange County which is mostly urban, and it has the same set of problems, and it happens because of how the state is being governed and taxed,” Preston said. But unlike other separation movements in the past the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed. “Yes. We have to demonstrate that we can govern ourselves before we are allowed to govern,” said founder Tom Reed. And despite obstacles, doubters, and obvious long odds the group stands united in their statehood dream. The group is organized with committees and a council of county representatives, but say it will take 10 to 18 months before they are ready to fully engage with the state legislature.

  • Apparent Drive-By Shooting Wounds Stockton Boy Inside HomeApparent Drive-By Shooting Wounds Stockton Boy Inside Home

    STOCKTON (CBS13) — A 7-year-old boy is recovering at a hospital after being hit by a stray bullet over the weekend. According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department, the boy was inside his home when someone opened fire right in front of his apartment complex. Deputies believe this was an apparent drive-by shooting and no one inside the family’s apartment was the intended target. Neighbors inside the apartment complex on Country Club Boulevard are still in shock after bullets went flying through a fence, shattering a sliding glass door and into a unit where a young boy was hit. “A 7-year-old? Oh my god, that’s horrible,” said Irene Curry of Stockton. Curry helps building owners maintain the property and says shootings in this particular neighborhood are rare. On Sunday evening, deputies with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department say someone began shooting at the apartment complex. The young victim was shot with his parents in the same room. “We just heard some guy yell something, and heard six rounds and I came outside to see what’s going on, and then I heard this lady crying, and saying, something, something has been shot,” said neighbor, Rick Maldonado. Loved ones say the boy is the sweetest, most caring gentle soul anyone could ever know. Neighbors say the family just moved into the neighborhood and are praying for his quick recovery. “Poor kid. Just sad, he was just there sitting, watching TV and just a bullet comes in through your house and hits you. So, it’s very sad, but we’re glad he’s doing good,” said Maldonado. Friends of the family say the boy’s father has been helping special-needs children for years and his mother is a service member. Deputies are looking for witnesses or anyone who may have seen or heard something. As of now, there are no suspects.

  • Floor Sensors Could Help Retailers Track Your Shopping HabitsFloor Sensors Could Help Retailers Track Your Shopping Habits

    MILWAUKEE (AP) – The next phase in data collection is right under your feet. Online clicks give retailers valuable insight into consumer behavior, but what can they learn from footsteps? It’s a question Milwaukee-based startup Scanalytics is helping businesses explore with floor sensors that track people’s movements. The sensors can also be used in office buildings to reduce energy costs and in nursing homes to determine when someone falls. But retailers make up the majority of Scanalytics’ customers, highlighting one of several efforts brick-and-mortar stores are undertaking to better understand consumer habits and catch up with e-commerce giant Amazon. Physical stores have been at a disadvantage because they “don’t have that granular level of understanding as to where users are entering, what they’re doing, what shelves are not doing well, which aisles are not being visited,” said Brian Sathianathan, co-founder of Iterate.ai, a small Denver-based company that helps businesses find and test technologies from startups worldwide. But it’s become easier for stores to track customers in recent years. With Wi-Fi – among the earliest available options – businesses can follow people when they connect to a store’s internet. One drawback is that not everyone logs on so the sample size is smaller. Another is that it’s not possible to tell whether someone is inches or feet away from a product. Sunglass Hut and fragrance maker Jo Malone use laser and motion sensors to tell when a product is picked up but not bought, and make recommendations for similar items on an interactive display. Companies such as Toronto-based Vendlytics and San Francisco-based Prism use artificial intelligence with video cameras to analyze body motions. That can allow stores to deliver customized coupons to shoppers in real time on a digital shelf or on their cellphones, said Jon Nordmark, CEO of Iterate.ai. With Scanalytics, Nordmark said, “to have (the sensors) be super useful for someone like a retailer, they may need to power other types of things,” like sending coupons to customers. Scanalytics co-founder and CEO Joe Scanlin said that’s what his floor sensors are designed to do. For instance, the sensors read a customer’s unique foot compressions to track that person’s path to a digital display and how long the person stand in front of it before walking away, he said. Based on data collected over time, the floor sensors can tell a retailer the best time to offer a coupon or change the display before the customer loses interest. “Something that in the moment will increase their propensity to purchase a product,” said Scanlin, 29, who started developing the paper-thin sensors that are 2-square feet (0.19-sq. meters) as a student at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2012. He employs about 20 people. Wisconsin-based bicycle retailer Wheel and Sprocket uses Scanalytics’ sensors – which can be tucked under utility mats – to count the number of customers entering each of its eight stores to help schedule staff. “That’s our biggest variable expense,” said co-owner Noel Kegel. “That sort of makes or breaks our profitability.” Kegel wants to eventually have sensors in more areas throughout his stores to measure where customers spend most of their time and what products are popular, but he said it’s too expensive right now. The cost of having the sensors ranges from $20 to $1,000 per month, depending on square footage and add-on applications to analyze data or interact with digital signs, Scanlin said. He said he’s working with 150 customers in the U.S. and other countries and estimates that about 60 percent are retailers. The emergence of tracking technologies is bound to raise concerns about privacy and surveillance. But Scanlin noted his sensors don’t collect personally identifying information. Jeffrey Lenon, 47, who was recently shopping at the Shops of Grand Avenue mall in Milwaukee, said he wasn’t bothered by the idea of stores tracking foot traffic and buying habits. “If that’s helping the retailer as far as tracking what sells and what no, I think it’s a good idea,” Lenon said. These technologies have not become ubiquitous in the U.S. yet, but it’s only a matter of time, said Ghose Anindya, a business professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. “In a couple of years this kind of conversation will be like part and parcel of everyday life. But I don’t think we’re there yet,” he said. ___ Sign up for the AP’s weekly newsletter showcasing our best reporting from the Midwest and Texas: http://apne.ws/2u1RMfv   Copyright 2018 The Associated Press.

  • Kevin Costner Doesn’t Like SequelsKevin Costner Doesn’t Like Sequels

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – Kevin Costner isn’t a big believer in doing film sequels for a simple reason. Costner told TV critics Monday that the writing often isn’t as good as in the original movie and it’s the screenplay that draws him to a project. He says that’s why he’s starring in “Yellowstone,” a 10-part drama series debuting June 20 on the new Paramount Television network, the rebranded Spike TV. The actor says that when he likes a script, it isn’t just because he has a good part, but that all the characters are “doing a nice dance.” Costner plays the owner of a vast, family-owned ranch who is trying to resist encroachment by developers and others. The ensemble cast includes Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Jill Hennessey and Josh Lucas.   Copyright 2018 The Associated Press.
