CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The competition was fierce between the 13 chili chefs at the GFWC Citrus Heights Women’s Club Fifth Annual Chili Cook-off and Venders and Craft event on October 11th. The parking lot at 6060 Sunrise Vista was buzzing with activity; there were over 500 shoppers and chili tasters. Vintage cars and children’s activities rounded out the day’s attractions. For a fee of $10, all were encouraged to taste and then judge the chili entries.

The polls closed at 2 p.m., and the votes were taken to be counted; contestants and friends waited eagerly for the results. In the final tally, entry No. 1 overtook and passed entry No. 7, but Kristy Hernandez with GFWC Citrus Heights Women’s Club conceded that while her chili won, it may have been because second place entry No. 7 ran out before the polls closed. Hernandez was awarded $150 for her efforts. When asked her secret, she replied, “patience,” and allowing her chili to simmer for an undisclosed period of time.

CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Be Money Smart USA’s new venture, a program that helps veterans start their own businesses, got a recent funding boost with a county fair themed gala. The event was hosted by the Armor Mini Storage facility on Auburn Boulevard.

Visitors enjoyed a barn dance, carnival contests, and a tri-tip barbecue. Some guests endured brief incarcerations in the “county jail”—a storage unit repurposed as a prison cell. Bail was negotiable.

A success story for founding eight farmers markets in Carmichael and other suburbs, the Be Money Smart USA non-profit was launched in 2008 to help high-schoolers develop business skills through running these weekly markets. Owners Don and Marie Hall were named business people of the year 2014 by the Carmichael Chamber of Commerce. Their new Veterans Build Your Own Micro Business Academy aims to help service people transition from military to civilian life. Enrollees will learn to own and manage their own businesses by partnering with farmers market merchants.

“Residents have been spectacular in their water use reductions,” said RWA Water Efficiency Program Manager Amy Talbot.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Customers at 14 Sacramento-area agencies (listed below) reduced water use by 20 percent or more in August compared to the same period last year, according to an analysis by the Regional Water Authority (RWA), which represents water providers in Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, and Yolo counties. The findings come from a review of August water use data submitted to RWA and the State Water Resources Control Board.

“Residents have been spectacular in their water use reductions,” said RWA Water Efficiency Program Manager Amy Talbot. “August is typically one of the hottest months of the year, which makes the temptation to ramp up sprinklers hard to resist. But the data shows that residents have made a serious commitment to preserving our limited resources during the severe dry conditions.”
