New Walgreens gets the green light from council

The way has been cleared for a new Walgreens pharmacy at the corner of 19th and Hamilton. On Monday, the city council gave final approval to the plan after the developer made some changes to address traffic concerns. Traffic will not be allowed to cross 19th and no left turns will be allowed onto Hamilton from the new store. Semper Development says the 15,000 square foot drug store will take about a year to build.

High school student inspires others to join his fight against cancer

A student at East Sac County high school has an idea to help defeat cancer. Brad Pickhinke came up with a contest called "Rock'n Out Cancer." His goal is to raise 10-thousand dollars for cancer research, by having students pay ten-dollars for T-shirts and the opportunity to produce music videos for the cause. Brad says he was moved to action after losing a close family friend to breast cancer last year. He says this is an opportunity for young people to make a difference against a disease that affects all of us.
