Our Lady of Grace honors their Woman of the Year By Jan Dalske

Each year, for the last 62 years, the local Catholic women’s groups from parishes in the Sacramento area have selected their woman of the year. She is honored at a luncheon along with other women. This year the Our Lady of Grace Women’s Council selected Ana Ramirez – Palmer as their Woman of the Year for 2017. When asked to highlight the reason that they selected her for this special honor, they shared Ana’s contributions to their parish, as well as her involvement within their faith community. Ana has been a member of Our Lady of Grace (OLG) Parish over the last eight years. Before that she was one of the original parishioners at Holy Cross Parish for more than 60 years. Currently she serves as facilitator for Bible Study for the Adult Faith Formation. She has been a committed and motivat-

Ana and Steve ing force with the Mom’s Ministry. Ana also leads Bible Study at Easter’s Faith Formation Center, located on Sunrise Blvd in Citrus Heights, where she is a member of the Board of Directors. She has a Master’s Degree in Theology from the Augustine Institute. She also has a Certificate in Advanced Catechetics from the University of Sacramento. During the summer she leads song and dance at

OLG’s Vacation Bible School. At church she serves as a lector and leads in the singing. Ana’s great faith is uplifting to the other parishioners, especially to the moms and children. Her generous contributions of her time and her talent are an inspiration to everyone. She is also a member of the Sacramento Catholic Forum and serves on the Diocesan Council of Cath-

olic Women’s Board. Ana retired after 33 years with the State of California, with 10 years of service as a warden in the California prison system. She was one of the highest-ranking individuals in the California Department of Corrections. During that time she accepted challenges that few people would attempt. She oversaw an acute care hospital program for the terminally ill in a 500bed AIDS/HV unit. She ministered to the spiritual needs of patients while providing necessary physical care. During a hostage crisis at a California facility, she saved the lives of a nurse and her unborn child. Ana received special recognition for leadership and bravery for her actions. She continues to be a model of courage, compassion and generosity. She usually gives credit to others rather than accept it for herself. Ana Ramirez-Palmer attributes a significant amount of her successes to her husband, Steve Ramirez-Palmer and his loving support. Together they serve the Our Lady of Grace Parish.

Parking rates for the Bridge District still under consideration after hourlong March 15 meeting By Daniel Wilson dwilson@dwilsononline.com After a lengthy discussion, the West Sacramento City Council unanimously approved three of seven changes proposed by Mayor Christopher Cabaldon in relation to the Bridge District parking rate resolution at its March 15 meeting. The approved changes included pushing back the start date for the meter parking from May 1 to July 1 to allow more time for the decision-making process and to have city officials work with public transportation and bike share providers to assess transit improvements in areas where parking will be reduced. Among the four proposed changes that were not adopted, Cabaldon suggested a tiered system where the parking rate for the new parking lot at 5th and Bridge—previously proposed at $60 per month, a fee many residents were concerned about at the March 1 meeting of the council—to begin at $30 for the first six months and then increase to $50 per month for affordable housing residents in the district and to $60 per month for all other residents. Mayor Pro Tem Mark Johannessen suggested a similar system, but his version would have the fees start at $30 for the first year and increase by $10 each year until they reach $60. According to the staff report for the March 15 meeting, the lowest amount per parking space needed each month to recoup costs would be $23. According to the council, the proposed $30 starting rate is high enough above that threshold, but would also help residents ease into the new pay structure. With the $60 rate, the additional $37 would be to make up for parking vacancies and other costs associated with maintaining the parking lot over time, the report explained. See Parking, page 2

Obituary Marie Louise Amaral Marie Louise Amaral was born on Feb. 6, 1931 and passed away on March 5, 2017. Marie grew up on a farm in Meade, Colorado where, through helping her father and raising hell with the Newton family, she developed a character of hard work, fairness, keen judgment, and Catholic faith. In 1959, she moved to Broderick, California and, with husband Bill, established the Amaral family. Her hands, both firm in their reality and gentle in their guidance, raised six children (Mick, Theresa, Bill, Joe, Tim, and Liz) and played a formative role in the lives of several grandchildren. In the end, whether she is remembered as a cousin, rodeo queen, mother, aunt, neighbor, church member, golf champion, or grandma, she will remain in time a farm girl whose perseverance and compassion serve as a reminder of what it means to be a human who is true to oneself, one’s family, and one’s community. Family and friends are invited to celebrate Marie’s life at Holy Cross Church, 800 Todhunter Drive, West Sacramento CA 95605 on Friday, March 31, 2017 at 10 a.m.

A Day in the Life of A Hijab-Wearing Woman By Stacy Grow Arooj Ahmad cultivates numerous identities. She is a stay-at-home mother of three; a daughter of Pakistani immigrants; a UC Davis graduate; a former labor organizer; and a West Sacramento community activist. Arooj currently serves on the Board of Directors at James Marshall Parent Participation Preschool. She has left her mark at the school, instigating a switch to sustainable cups and silverware for snack time and frequently takes leftover food to the homeless. Next, Arooj hopes to start a school garden at Westfield Elementary. Among so many identities, there’s one more: Arooj is a practicing Muslim. This identity is more visible than most, since she chooses to practice hijab - the wearing of a headscarf when she leaves her home. For many, hijab is a gesture of modesty, dignity, and an expression of faith. Arooj chose to start practicing hijab later in life, when she became a mom. To her, it is a way to show her children the importance of Islam in her life, in a visual way children can understand. While she views wearing hijab as an act of spiritual devotion, Arooj is not immune to the fear of stigma. She has marked

a major difference in how others perceive her now, compared with her life before she wore hijab. She relates that her headscarf sometimes attracts ignorant, or even negative, attention from strangers. “People often assume I don’t speak English… even though I was born in Lodi, [CA]!” laughs Arooj. Other encounters are less humorous. On a children’s play date in McKinley Park with a friend, a homeless woman screamed at her group, “Go back to your own country!” Arooj admits it could be coincidence, but she seems to receive more than her fair share of getting cut in line, or road rage. One driver even stopped her car and pounded her fists on the window of Arooj’s vehicle. Perhaps the worst incident occurred when Arooj was buying diapers late at night in Stockton a few years ago. She remembers two women standing behind her in the checkout line. The women picked at her headscarf and repeatedly placed New Year Eve party hats on her head. They kept telling her, “We like these better [than your headscarf]!” The women continued to harass Arooj until management escorted them out of the store. Arooj notes that for many Americans, the

Residents in the area currently pay $10 a year for parking, but under the new $60 rate, that would increase to $720 each year. In addition, Cabaldon proposed an increase from 14 private street parking permits recommended for residents of The Habitat apartment complex, an affordable housing unit in the area, to 30 spaces to help ensure more residents would be able to park near their homes. Those permits would cost $40 for the first year, and $60 thereafter and Cabaldon added that 24 of them would be renewable after the first year once an assessment could be made regarding their necessity. Another of the mayor’s proposals was to change some language in the reso-

She’s aware that some Americans struggle to understand why a woman would “limit herself” by wearing hijab. Arooj relates a comparison made by Muslim activist Dalia Mogahed, that a woman in hijab

lution for clarity and the final proposal would establish parking meter codes that residents could give guests to allow them to park at a flat rate for up to 10 hours, twice per month. Cabaldon said his set of proposals won’t make everyone happy, but that it was the best way to try to balance concerns from residents, the needs of the city and the district’s offerings to outside guests. Concerns raised by residents at the March 1 meeting regarding temporary parking for loading or unloading vehicles were not addressed. Cabaldon, who lives in the Bridge District, said that the district was planned to be a hybrid residential and commercial area from the start. “This is an evolving issue,” Cabaldon said. “This is the last [piece]. It’s the adoption of the meter rates, it’s not the overall parking program, which

is basically “privatizing her sexuality.” Arooj feels that ultimately, a certain degree of mutual tolerance is necessary in our diverse community, saying, “[Hijabis] don’t ask that [others] understand all of the reasons why we choose to cover. But we do hope that people will be tolerant of our choice.”

we have already voted on repeatedly. Many of the policies that we’ve talked about have been adopted over the last year or prior to the construction of the district.” He clarified that residents should not be surprised by these changes and that they knew what they were signing up for when they moved to the district. “This is not a unique place in the city, but close, in the sense that it is a new area that the entire city has contributed and envisioned creating for itself and for the community to take back the waterfront to create a lively, mixed-use, downtown-style district with lots of entertainment and food and design in it,” Cabaldon said. “This isn’t a quiet, existing residential neighborhood that’s being disrupted by some external force, which is why we created residential permit parking in the first place.”

Shamrock’n Photos by George Young

Donning kilts and other creative St. Paddy’s costumes, more than 10,000 runners participated in the 12th Annual Blue Diamond Almonds Shamrock’n Half Marathon, 5K and Kids’ Leprechaun Dash ½ Mile on March 12-13 at Raley Field. The run traveled across the Tower Bridge, to the Capitol. Fifteen live bands were on course, running through the loud cheer station at Blue Diamond Almonds. From costumed runners to elite athletes to free beer, the largest Half Marathon in the Sacramento area, the event unsurprisingly sells out every year.

The street address and other

common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1003 W TABER STREET, WEST SACRAMENTO, CA 95605 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $265,900.81 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call In Source Logic at 702659-7766 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA07001542-16-1.

(CBD Dominant) / $2.48 per sq. ft.

Cultivators in Yolo County must comply with all applicable state and federal laws, including the California Attorney General’s 2008 Guidelines for Security and Non-Diversion of Marijuana Grown for Medical Use. Are Yolo County’s marijuana regulations permanent? Yolo County’s present marijuana regulations will be in place until the Board of Supervisors takes further action to change them. However, the County of Yolo intends to continue review and consideration of a more comprehensive medical marijuana licensing and regulatory program and to consider developing revised regulations that most effectively regulate and license all facets of marijuana activities. The intent is to develop permanent policy and regulations related to marijuana before the State begins issuing licenses in early 2018. Can I use or cultivate non-medical marijuana? Subject to all applicable restrictions contained in Proposition 64, an adult 21 years or older may grow up to 6 plants and use non-medical marijuana inside their own residence. Can I engage in commercial activities involving non-medical marijuana? No. Non-medical marijuana commercial activities are illegal until the State begins issuing licenses to operators in early 2018. Additionally, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors took preliminary steps to also prohibit non-medical marijuana commercial activities in the unincorporated area of Yolo County at its meeting on Jan. 24, 2017. The Board will consider adopting that ban at its meeting on Feb. 7, 2017. Source: yolocounty.org

First 5 Yolo Invests in Youngest Children and Families First 5 Yolo released an annual Local Evaluation Report showing the impact of approximately $1.6 million of investments in programs and services for children prenatal to 5 years and their families in Yolo County during Fiscal Year 2015-2016. Funded programs served 3,650 participants countywide, including children, families/caregivers, and providers across four priority areas: Improved Child Health, Improved Child Development, Improved Family Functioning, and Improved Systems and Networks. Funded programs focused on increasing the number of Yolo County children who are healthy and ready to learn by the time they enter kindergarten. Services strengthened the local foster care system, expanded home visiting services, delivered emergency child care for families in crisis, provided early developmental screenings including early child mental health assistance, offered high quality preschool, and emphasized early learning. Access to early child mental health services, and very early detection and intervention for children 0-5 is an emerging need. First 5 Yolo has launched an ambitious system-wide approach with Help Me Grow, a program administered by Children’s Therapy Center of Northern California in collaboration with Yolo County Children’s Alliance (YCCA), RISE, Inc., and Empower Yolo. Help Me Grow works to increase the number of children 0-5 who are screened for developmental, social emotional, behavioral, and cognitive delays; connects families to services; and identifies and addresses barriers to accessing services. The program has developed cross-sector partnerships with organizations through the County to create a system of early child mental health support, with full launch at the end of FY15/16. In the first year, Help Me Grow provided free screenings to 551 children in Yolo, identifying 21% scoring in the “concern” range in one of more of the assessments. According to First 5 Yolo Commissioner Nichole Arnold, “The identification of possible developmental issues is a first step in early intervention for these children, and will pay dividends down the road in terms of health, education, and future life success.” First 5 Yolo is looking to expand access to developmental screenings and connection to services, and is actively exploring options for leveraging other public and private funds to

sustain and build the program. Several other successful programs and services were funded as well. Yolo County Supervisor and Chair of First 5 Yolo, Jim Provenza, noted, ““We are proud of Yolo First 5’s role in helping kids stay healthy, giving families the tools they need to remain safe and stable and providing early  learning opportunities for our youngest residents.  The evaluation report again validates that we are reaching and supporting many of the most vulnerable children in our community.” Other key funded programs and partners included: Safe respite care and wrap-around services for families in crisis (Yolo Crisis Nursery) Evidence-based home visitation program for expectant parents (County of Yolo Health and Human Services and Yolo County Children’s Alliance Step by Step/ Paso a Paso) Parenting Classes for children and parents (RISE, Inc. Avance) Peer-led parenting support networks (Family Hui) Play School Experience early learning and parent support (YCCA, RISE, Empower Yolo) Enhancing early learning and literacy (Yolo County Library Storytime, Winters BOOST, and ARK Preschool) Quality improvement for early childhood providers (First 5 IMPACT and City of West Sacramento’s Up4WS) Foster Care Recruitment and Retention (YCCA) Looking forward, First 5 Yolo is focused on improving systems that serve Yolo County’s youngest children and their families. According to First 5 Yolo Executive Director Gina Daleiden, “First 5 Yolo is committed to investing strategically in programs, services, and systems, and to devoting agency resources to support early prevention and intervention efforts with other organizations, funders, and key stakeholders. Together, we can have the greatest impact.” Harder+Company’s work reflects data gathered through reporting to First 5 Yolo, as well as additional evaluation efforts conducted by staff and Harder+Company.
