Webber encouraged by his youthful, former Kings team

LAS VEGAS, NV - Chris Webber openly admits he's biased when covering his former Sacramento Kings team as an NBA analyst, even during Summer League in Las Vegas, where he called a game with his former Los Angeles Lakers nemesis Rick Fox for NBA-TV.

"Rick knows I still hate the Lakers," Webber told News10 following Sacramento's 84-72 victory over the Lakers. "I'm just happy that I'm apart of the Kings family in some way."

The39-year-old, former five-time All-Star played 15 years in the NBA and more than six seasons with the Kings. His No. 4 jersey hangs among the franchise's greatest players in the rafters of Power Balance Pavilion, formerly ARCO Arena in Sacramento.

Webber raved about Kings rookie power forward Thomas Robinson, who was selected by Sacramento with the fifth overall pick, and how he would pair with budding star DeMarcus Cousins.

Sacramento-area schools owed $75M for 'emergency' repairs

SACRAMENTO, CA - Eight years after California settled a landmark lawsuit promising hundreds of millions of dollars to repair shoddy school facilities, more than 700 schools still are waiting for their share of funds as students take classes on dilapidated campuses with health and safety hazards.

California has funded less than half of the $800 million required by the Emergency Repair Program, which grew out of a class-action lawsuit against the state that former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger agreed to settle.

Since then, schools in 39 counties have waited as long as four years for the money to fix leaking roofs, crumbling pavement and clogged sewer lines.

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - An elderly woman found dead in West Sacramento Sunday evening was a woman reported missing last Friday, say Davis police.

The victim, 78-year-old Patricia Morganthal, was discovered in the area of Tower Bridge Gateway west of the Ironworks neighborhood, said police Lt. Paul Doroshov said.

Morganthal, who was known to have dementia, was believed to have died hours before she was officially pronounced deceased at 8:26 p.m. Sunday, Doroshov said.

Detectives were investigating the circumstances leading up to Morganthal's death but foul play wasn't suspected, Doroshov said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Calif. endorses law on 'abusive' home lending

LOS ANGELES (AP) - California has a new law to stop what Gov. Brown calls abusive home lending tactics. 

The Democratic governor signed the law Wednesday at a ceremony in Los Angeles. 

It makes the state the first to write into law much of the national mortgage settlement negotiated this year with the nation's top five banks, and expands it to all lenders.

It prohibits lenders from seizing a home while considering homeowner requests for alternatives to foreclosure. It also lets homeowners take legal action to stop foreclosures and seek monetary damages if a lender violates state law.

Lenders and legislative critics say the law does nothing to address the underlying problem: too many borrowers can't afford their house payments.

The law that takes effect Jan. 1 was opposed by most Republican legislators.

Fans welcome Robinson as their newest King

SACRAMENTO, CA - Thomas Robinson was given his first taste of what it's like to be a member of the Kings in Sacramento.

Hundreds of Kings fans gave Robinson a hero's welcome at Arden Fair Mall on Saturday afternoon.

Earlier in the day during his welcoming press conference, Robinson compared Kings fans to the passionate Jayhawks fans at Kansas where he played for three seasons.

Known as a ferocious rebounder at Kansas, Robinson believes he will be the perfect on-court compliment to Kings center DeMarcus Cousins.

The 21-year-old power forward's journey to Sacramento took a lot longer than expected. His flight was delayed leaving from New York on Friday morning, before ending up in Long Beach. After a drive to Santa Ana, Robinson caught a flight and landed in the capital city just before 11:00 p.m. on Friday night.
