This week marks the 10th anniversary of the BIG DAY OF GIVING when residents of the area share giving to 700 non-profits four local counties, Placer, El Dorado, Sacramento, and Yolo. 38 nonprofits are listed as being within 25 miles of the City of Auburn. This day of giving is the first day for two or more years not having community events and marks the first time for several organizations to get to gather and work in tandem with each other.
Next Friday features the 38th year of the first night of Cruise Night in Auburn, an icon of great fun, get togethers with enthusiasts who love cars, and thoes who admire and come from miles around to look and touch these classic cars, and talk car talk. Food, beverages, Auburn Winds music performing at the Promenade building on High Street, Placer County Mounties displaying at the clock tower, and free, free. How cool is that?
A draft opinion circulated among Supreme Court justices suggests that earlier this year a majority of them had thrown support behind overturning the 1973 case Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion nationwide, according to a report published Monday night in Politico. It’s unclear if the draft represents the court’s final word on the matter.
The Associated Press could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the draft Politico posted, which if verified marks a shocking revelation of the high court’s secretive deliberation process, particularly before a case is formally decided.
A Supreme Court spokeswoman said the court had no comment.
The news outlet published what was labeled as a “1st Draft” of the “Opinion of the Court” in a case challenging Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks, a case known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The Supreme Court has yet to issue a ruling in the case, and opinions — and even justices’ votes — have been known to change during the drafting process. The court is expected to rule on the case before its term is up in late June or early July.
Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a statement about the reported draft opinion with strong opposition to the move by the Supremes. The leak jumpstarted the intense political reverberations that the high court’s ultimate decision was expected to have in the midterm election year. Already politicians on both sides of the aisle were seizing on the report to fundraise and energize their supporters on either side of the hot-button issue. Other polling shows relatively few Americans want to see Roe overturned. In 2020, AP Vote Cast found that 69% of voters in the presidential election said the Supreme Court should leave the Roe v. Wade decision as is; just 29% said the court should overturn the decision. In general, AP-NORC polling finds a majority of the public favor’s abortion being legal in most or all cases.
Another stabbing at a Sacramento area school, this one as one student stabbed another. The San Juan Unified School District said both students attend Encina Preparatory High School and that the fight occurred near the campus. One of the students was injured and is receiving medical attention. One student has been arrested and taken to juvenal hall in Sacramento County. Local schools were placed on lockdown as investigations were activated.
The Sacramento County District Attorney’s office released that A Sacramento County jury yesterday convicted a homeless man who attacked and sexually assaulted women also living in homeless encampments along the American River Parkway. The jury found Layman McFadden, 40, guilty of rape by force, three counts of oral copulation by force, two counts of domestic violence, three counts of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury, two counts of false imprisonment and making criminal threats. There are legal requests to Placer County to remove all homeless residents from the Riverbanks in the Sacramento area to stop crime, pollution of the river waters, and potential wild fire activity as we approach the summer months and another drought season in the area.
