Thousands of people are currently without a home in the Sacramento region. In Sacramento County alone it is believed that the number of people who are currently experiencing homelessness has risen from 2822 to 3665 people over just a few years. To put it in perspective, the population of an average high school in California is just 999 students. Many of these people have been on the streets for years.
In August, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Sacramento County Supervisor Don Nottoli, Sacramento Councilmember Jeff Harris and Sacramento Steps Forward Director Ryan Loofbourrow signed their names in bold and pledged to work together to stop the homelessness problem in Sacramento. However, recent public outcry from Sacramento citizens shows some of the disapproval of the current process.
On November 8th, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM, people will be holding hands and forming a human chain across I Street. The event is called “Hands Across I Street” and its purpose is to support a unified plan between the County and City of Sacramento to end the displacement. There is currently an agreement between the County and City to help people that are experiencing homelessness, however, there is yet to be a comprehensive plan.
“(There is) over $3 million in housing and services to help people experiencing homelessness,” stated the City of Sacramento Website.
“(There is) $1.35 million redesigned system for families experiencing homelessness,” stated the County Of Sacramento Website.
The County and City have their own individual plan to combat the problem, but the number of people experiencing destitution keeps rising in both places.
By holding hands and forming a human chain, the citizens hope to show that they want the County and City to work together in order to combat homelessness. Mayor Darrell Steinberg and Supervisor Kennedy will be attending the event. You can find out more about the event here.
As a self imposed bookworm, I have no qualms about locking myself in a room devouring a trashy YA series until my eyes dry up. As a matter of fact, it’s become a sort of routine of mine. Though aside from an unhealthy obsession with reading (if you can even call reading an obsession) my mom drags me out of the Batcave every once in awhile to do things like eat and, my least favorite thing, socialize.
Socializing usually comes in the form of school. I’ve had a very unhealthy case of Senoritis since freshman year. Despite sharing classes with these kids for four years, I still point and grunt at whomever I’m referring to in class when I don’t know their name, and they do the same. There was never a need to get to know anyone, so I didn’t. We all were just strangers who had to sit next to each other and occasionally speak at one another, that is, until the clock strikes about 12:45, when my English class begins.
My teacher, Mr. Durant, has a very unconventional style of teaching. In his class, he likes to throw out random provocative ideas and watch his students pounce on them like lions with raw meat. Every day it feels more like a cage fight than a classroom and everyone is on edge to jump up and challenge what the other person has said. So usually, I stay quiet.
One Thursday, Durant had us separate ourselves into different sides of the room.
Left side to agree; right side to disagree. He then turned around and wrote on the board in big block letters, “All love is good love.”
Everyone in the room moved, some of us even climbing over furniture to pick a side, and then we spoke up.
In our little space, we were able to delve into really personal topics. We discussed break ups, domestic violence, self love, depression, family, anything that even touched the topic of love. Most of us laughed, but some of us cried too, though they were quickly comforted by so-in-so who was just a faceless classmate minutes before.
Pretty soon I realized that Mr Durant wasn’t guiding the conversation anymore, but just letting it flow. He threw in the occasional “that’s deep”, to show he was still paying attention but for the whole period the time was ours.
At Sacramento Charter, the students have a bit of a reputation. We are seen as hard and rowdy. We party too hard and get into fights constantly. There are very rare moments though where our culture shines through and despite our many traits, our sense of community outshines them all.

The Titans’ desperation drive to set up the winning points followed a crazy, slapstick-like sequence of confused Antelope players scrambling on and off the field trying to determine which play to run and which formation to assemble. This gridiron comedy took nearly a full minute for the Titans to finally line-up for Gomez’ deciding field goal.
Antelope Head Coach, Matt Ray, brings his Titans into Cougar Canyon Friday evening where Homecoming Night for the Cougars will add further spice to this heated rivalry set to unfold in Fair Oaks.
On the flip side, Del Campo Head Coach, Mike Dimino, boasts an offense averaging 43 ppg. Senior QB Tyler Dimino leads the attack, connecting on a 72% completion rate good for better than 1300 yards and 21 TD. The trio of WRs Trevor Brouhns, Marshaun Hunter, and David Joseph have collected 61 receptions for more than 1700 yards and 19 TD. Standout RBs Greg Cabral and Levi Markey have combined for better than 1500 yards and 15 TD.
