Employees pitch in after expensive shoes stolen from teen


Nike's Air Force One sneakers were a must have for Jamal Johnson.

"I've been wanting those shoes for so long," said Jamal, who is going into his freshmen year at Center High School.

But, the trendy pair of kicks don't come cheap.

"They were $100, which is a lot of money when you got four kids to buy back to school clothes for," Jamal's mom Katie Winkler said.

Winkler is a single mother who lives on a tight budget.

"It's kind of a big deal, and he pretty much begged me -- almost to the point of being on his knees -- to get him these shoes," said Winkler, who eventually acquiesced in to her son's wishes.

On Saturday, they came to the Finish Line shoe store at the Westfield Galleria in Roseville – and as quickly as Jamal got his hands on the new sneakers, they disappeared.

"Whether it's something as seemingly mild as acne or whether it's something more serious like being in an abusive relationship," Sacramento Public Library teen librarian Molly Milazzo said. "These are the kinds of topics, especially when you are young, that you want to be able to handle quietly."

Smart water systems protect investments, prevent hazards in Roseville


SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Communities all over California are reminding residents to take care of their trees, even in this historic drought.

Leaders from both the City of Roseville and the City of Sacramento said it's all about smart watering to keep these investments alive.

Roseville now has watering trucks that are injecting what they refer to as high valued trees and other city landscapes. They are doing this with recycled water. The goal is to maintain Roseville's healthy tree canopy without dipping into our drinking water supply. Experts said the technology they use ensures every drop goes exactly where it needs to.

The City of Sacramento is also encouraging neighbors to keep their trees healthy. Kelly Conroy with the Sacramento Tree Foundation said it's important to water outside wisely.
