A west Sacramento Icon resturant and building has announced by the family that has owned and served the area with signature ravioli for 87 years is closing at the end of the year. Club Pheasant has been a staple to many locals that drove there to dine, attend a service club, or just stop by as tradition, to meet and eat place. When Club Pheasant opened 87 years ago, it was first called the Hideway Cafe. Many of its original recipes are still served, and the restaurant makes over 10,000 of its hallmark homemade ravioli dinners every week. The owning family said they decided it was time to retire, close the building and spend time with family.
Californians might see inflation relief checks of $200 to as much as $1,050 by the fall under a tentative budget agreement between Gov. Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders. Newsom, Sen. President Pro Tem Toni Atkins, D-San Diego and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, D-Lakewood, have been negotiating over two plans to provide relief funds to Golden State residents struggling with high fuel costs and inflation. Now, it seems the two parties have reached an initial budget agreement with $9 billion in relief — just in time for the end of the fiscal year on June 30, the Los Angeles Times first reported.
Budget planning is still this week headlining all local, state, and federal governments. The Placer County Board of Supervisors heard last week a presentation regarding the county’s transportation needs and potential sales tax measure the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) would like to implement.
The potential sales tax measure would be a south district tax for Lincoln, Rocklin, and Roseville to assist addressing a funding gap for county transportation expansion projects like constructing Placer Parkway, widening Highway 65, or making improvements to Interstate 80. According to PCTPA Executive Director Mike Luken, the county has more than $3 billion of planned transportation infrastructure needs over the next 30-40 years, with $2 billion paid with impact fees from the building community and more than $1 billion still unfunded. According to Luken, Placer County is the largest county in California of those without a sales tax measure and there are 25 counties with a tax measure, which makes it difficult when competing for state and federal grant funding. After discussion, no action was taken.
