Cousins Maine Lobster makes its Sacramento debut


Cousins Maine Lobster, which made a splash on ABC's Shark Tank in 2012, launched in West Sacramento on Thursday.

The franchise business, owned by husband-and-wife team Paul and Vickie Sharkey, had its kickoff at Yolo Brewing Company in West Sacramento. By 5 p.m., a line had wrapped around Yolo Brewing's parking lot, with people waiting to get their hands on the truck's famous $14 lobster rolls (made with, yes, actual Maine lobster).

"I love lobster rolls. You can't find them anywhere in the Valley," customer Dan Dias said. "So I saw [this], following News10 on Facebook, so I said, 'hey, I'm going to go over there, wait a while and get a lobster roll or two.'"

Dias drove to Yolo Brewing from Folsom for his lobster roll fix before heading home to Stockton.

River Cats' grounds crew works to save water during drought


WEST SACRAMENTO - The continuing drought appears to be impacting almost everything, including sports. Baseball stadiums are no exception to trying to cut back on water usage.

At Raley Field, the grounds crew is using a number of tricks.

The process started three years ago when they redid the turf according to the head groundskeeper Chris Shastid.

"We went to a more drought tolerant turf," he explained. "This is an over-seeded Bermuda field, and the Bermuda grass we selected is made for drought conditions."

Shastid said this type of grass uses 50 percent less water than other types of Bermuda grass. It's not just water that's used on the surface.

Shastid said they use two different "wetting agents" that they spray on the grass, similar to a fertilizer.
