Roseville Circle Theatre West misses fundraising goal

ROSEVILLE, CA - In the end, it just wasn't enough.

In an almost desperate bid to keep the doors of Roseville's Civic Theatre West open,  the board of directors and local enthusiasts had launched a fund raising drive hoping to realize enough revenue to get the struggling theatre company back on its feet.

The Civic Theatre West, known for years as the Magic Circle Theatre, closed its doors Nov. 10 because of a lack of funds.  The drive had hoped to raise $350,000, but was not able to attract large donors.  By the deadline, accumulated pledges only reached $57,000.

"Now we're going to close up shop," said board president Calvin Stevens.

Civic Theatre West ran two physical theatres, the Roseville Theatre and the Tower Theatre.  The Roseville Theatre was leased from the Masonic Lodge and the Lodge is said to be  looking for another renter.

Wonder Hanger: Is it worth it?

ROSEVILLE, CA - For those who like to keep things orderly and tidy, the closest can sometimes be quite a challenge, with too many clothes and just not enough space. "Wonder Hanger" claims to triple your closet space and keep your clothes organized and wrinkled free.

News10 viewer Sharon Ney opened up her husband's closet, and News10's Keba Arnold put the Wonder Hanger to the test.

For $9.99, eight hangers come in the box. Each hanger has five slots to hang your clothes. The directions suggest hanging one hanger in each slot. The first step is to attach the hanging hooks to the hangers.

Arnold and Ney had a difficult time putting the Wonder Hanger together. It took several attempts, applying a lot of pressure, until all of the hangers were ready to use. Ney said, "It should not be this hard."

Police dog finds missing woman with Alzheimer's

ROSEVILLE - A police dog was a real hero Monday night when he helped find a missing elderly woman.

Just before 10 p.m., officers learned a Roseville resident in her 70s with Alzheimer's Syndrome had wandered away from home.

They began searching the area without luck, but minutes after a police dog named Apollo and his handler, Officer Scott Miskewcycz, arrived on scene, the dog located the woman in a neighbor's carport, not far from her home.

She was soon reunited with her family.

Toys R Us extends holiday shopping hours

Sloan is part of another holiday shopping trend; she's finished most of her shopping early this year.

Roseville Galleria evacuated due to 'flash mob' crowd

ROSEVILLE, CA - The Roseville Galleria mall was evacuated for precautionary reasons Monday night after about 5,000 people showed up for a "flash mob" inside the mall, according to a fire official.

The incident happened around 7:15 p.m. inside the mall when the huge crowd gathered to perform a spontaneous musical performance, said Roseville Fire Inspector Tom Dodaro. He said there were reports of the floor creaking near the food court due to the oversized gathering.

The entire building was evacuated as fire and police officials worked to determine if the structure was safe.

The group, organized by the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra, said they were going to perform Handel's Hallejuah Chorus as a "random act of musical kindness" this holiday season.

Alicia-On-Wheels 2.0

No matter how much of a city-lover you are, there are some downsides to the urban life. Our fellow 3folder, Alicia experienced this first-hand this week, waking up one morning to discover her beloved cruiser bike gone.


3fold loves Sacramento. We are avid supporters of our Midtown neighborhood and big fans of bike commuting. We are also big ol’ softies when it comes to helping out our own…and apparently our friends and colleagues (around town and in our various social media networks) are even more awesome.
