Man sexually assaults woman on Antelope school campus

ANTELOPE, CA - A police drawing of a man who sexually assaulted a young woman on an Antelope school campus last month has been released by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department in the hope someone will recognize the individual and contact them.

The attack took place on Nov. 25 at approximately 8:30 p.m. on the campus of Olive Grove Elementary School on the 7900 block of Firestone Way. Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos said the 19-year-old woman was approached by the man, had a short conversation with him and then the two went their separate ways.

However, as the woman walked around the school campus, the same man came up to her again, grabbed her and raped her, Ramos said. The man then ran away.

The assailant was described as black, in his 20s, approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall with a medium build. He had a thin moustache and beard. At the time, he wore a gray sweatshirt with a hood.

Roseville photographer suspected of secretly videotaping underage girls

ROSEVILLE, CA - A Roseville photographer has been charged with possession of obscene matter involving a person under the age of 18, according to the Roseville Police Department.

Officer Dee Dee Gunther said detectives began investigating 30-year-old Ronald Roy Buchanan Jr. in late November when an underage girl and her parents contacted the police department about their suspicion Buchanan had secretly videotaped the girl while she was changing clothes in a bathroom during a photo shoot. They also accused Buchanan of making inappropriate comments, Gunther said.

Based on the police investigation, Buchanan's line of work and that he has been a local club volleyball coach, Gunther said detectives think there could be other girls the suspect took pictures of without their knowledge while they were undressing.

Buchanan was booked into Placer County Jail on $250,000 bail.

Rum Raisin Shortbread Cookies

Rum Raisin Shortbread Cookies

By Janelle Maiocco with www.talkoftomatoes.com

My father used to eat, or rather devour, a rum raisin bread pudding that his mother made. When I came across this particular cookie, it spoke of his favorite flavors all folded together with a bit of butter. Who was I not to make it? I am not a hard sell when it comes to new recipes, and this one I adopted from the June 2007 Martha Stewart cookie of the month. The biggest difference? Mine has more rummy raisins and much larger pinches of orange zest. I am by no means a skimper.

So I made it. Actually, I made two ‘logs’ of cookies which for me is an inroads to another make-ahead treat. One log I sliced according to directions, and the other waited in the fridge a few days so I could slice and slide it onto a platter at just the right moment.

Even better? You can make a log to eat, and freeze one for later.
