Inside Adds Digital

For 23 years, we have been committed to delivering our monthly Inside Sacramento publications free to readers. It has been an innovative business model. Our readers tell us they enjoy the product. The community has been well served.
More than a decade ago, most other Sacramento print publications took desperate leaps into the digital world. Sadly, the publications that charged subscriptions saw their subscriber bases and revenues shrink when they rolled out digital formats.

Fenced Out

Sacramento City Councilmember Steve Hansen has broken ranks with his colleagues on the mission to provide public access to the Sacramento River levee.
While the rest of the council is committed to tearing down illegal and private fences that block levee access, Hansen has decided to build a new barrier.
With Hansen’s urging and support, the city erected a metal gate and fence across a public access pathway at 35th Avenue and Riverside Boulevard, blocking residents from enjoying the river.

The Story Behind the Book

The tables were turned on us in late 2018 when we released our The Second Edition of the photographic guidebook Inside Sacramento: The Most Interesting Neighborhood Places in America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. Here’s why we published it.
Sacramento is known as America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital. No other major American city is more centrally located amid so many small, family-owned farms, ranches and vineyards—all producing year-round in our ideal Mediterranean climate. Sacramento adopted the Farm-to-Fork Capital designation through the efforts of civic and business leaders who wanted to sing the praises of our local food-growing and food-making experience.

The Big 5-0

In one of his many teachings, Chinese philosopher Confucius wrote of aging, “At fifty, I knew the will of heaven.”
Evette Tsang, Grace Liu and Tian Li Wu thought a lot about this insight as the three friends—who all hail from different parts of mainland China and settled in Sacramento—approached their 50th birthdays.

From Beauty to Blight

The American River Parkway can expect more attention this summer with the park’s Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail moving toward possible designation as part of the U.S. Bicycle Route System.
National recognition would be exciting news for parkway fans. But there’s a risk—cyclists unfamiliar with the trail will encounter dozens of homeless campsites. Sadly, the American River Parkway can be a dangerous place, especially between Discovery Park and Cal Expo.

War of the Roses

During the last 18 months, my McKinley Park neighborhood has experienced a battle over the city’s plan to construct a large underground water vault. The project will go beneath McKinley Park’s eastern side where the baseball field sits.

We’ve had contentious community meetings, with neighbor against neighbor. Most water vault supporters—I am one of them—tended to stay out of the battle and let the city deal with the small but intense group of vault opponents.

Visiting Sacramento County’s public waterways is a traditional way to cool off and enjoy the outdoors. But before you take the plunge, remember to put on a life vest. Donning a life vest before going into the river is the smart and safe thing to do. And it’s the law for children under 13. Wearing a life vest could save a life—including your own or your child’s.

River City Marketplace (RCMP) has launched a new event series, Uptown Market on the Boulevard, taking place on Del Paso Boulevard every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. “Our most frequent request from vendors and visitors alike has been a consistent market in a more permanent indoor location,” says Ana Manzano Fairbairn, co-director of RCMP, now in its fifth year of presenting an eclectic mix of local goods and talent at events all over the city.
