Housing voucher program opens waiting list

SACRAMENTO, CA- For the first time in six years, section-eight vouchers will become available once again in Sacramento county.

The housing authority of the county of Sacramento will accept applications beginning at 12:01 a.m. Monday, June 4.

Athletics send RHP Tyson Ross to Sacramento

OAKLAND, CA - The Oakland Athletics have optioned right-hander Tyson Ross to the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats.

The team made the move on Thursday's off-day. Oakland is expected to activate outfielder Yoenis Cespedes on Friday in Kansas City to take Ross' place on the 25-man roster.

Ross was 2-6 with a 6.51 ERA in nine starts with the A's. He was 1-0 with a 2.13 ERA in his first two starts but went 1-6 with an 8.13 ERA over his past seven.

Ross got charged with three additional earned runs on Thursday because of a scoring change from his start last Friday against the New York Yankees.

A ball originally ruled a two-base error on Coco Crisp was changed to a double for Robinson Cano by MLB executive vice president Joe Torre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kings awarded 5th selection following NBA Draft Lottery

SACRAMENTO, CA - In the NBA Draft Lottery for the sixth straight year, the Sacramento Kings found themselves at least staying put and not falling into a lower draft position as they have over the last three years.

Finishing the 2011-12 NBA season with the fifth worst record in the league, Sacramento will indeed hold the fifth pick in June's Draft.

"I'm not disappointed, I like five," Kings Co-owner Gavin Maloof exulted, as he joined his 21-year-old center DeMarcus Cousins and about 200 fans at Firestone Public House in Sacramento. "There's 25 other teams that wish they were five. I love five, I'm happy. I really am. This is the first year we didn't move back."

The Kings had only a 7.6 percent chance of winning the top draft pick and 25.3 percent shot at moving up into the top three.

Officials at Raley's Supermarkets declare impasse

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - A labor disagreement between union workers at Raley's Supermarkets and company officials is heating up after the chain declared an impasse in negotiations.

The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/KQHj8S ) the move means Raley's could implement its "best and final" contract offer when the current contract expires on June 6.

The newspaper says negotiators with the United Food and Commercial Workers could either accept the offer or call for a
strike.

Union officials described themselves as "baffled" by the company's claim of an impasse, while company officials countered by saying the union was making what they termed "outrageous proposals to increase our costs."

Raley's Supermarkets is a privately held chain based in West Sacramento that operates stores under the Raley's, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods, and Food Source banners in Northern California and Nevada.

Inge shines in rehab stint with River Cats

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - Since joining the Oakland Athletics Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento on Friday, Brandon Inge has been on a tear.

Assigned to a rehabilitation assignment by Oakland, Inge has stolen the spotlight from 12-time All-Star Manny Ramirez who is also in Sacramento as he prepares to return from a 50-game Major League suspension.

On Saturday alone, Inge went 5-for-5 with seven RBIs as the Sacramento River Cats defeated the Reno Aces 10-0 before a crowd of 11,326. 

Inge finished with two home runs, one which was a grand slam, two doubles and a single. His seven RBIs fell one short of the all-time River Cats record of eight - set by Cody McCay in 2002, which was later tied by Dan Johnson in 2004. 

Through two games with the River Cats, Inge has gone 6-for-7 with eight RBIs. He was placed on the disabled list by Oakland on May 13 after suffering a right groin injury.
