New field prompts spat between CSD, RMA

Field

The Community Services District and the Rancho Murieta Association are at odds about providing water to a new playing field, and they differ about the size of the field as well. CSD General Manager Joe Blake contends the field occupies four acres, and CSD water hook-up fees of close to $190,000 have been triggered for metering, water augmentation and water treatment capacity. RMA General Manager Greg Vorster maintains that RMA has permission from the CSD to use metered water from Stonehouse Park on a temporary basis to irrigate a field that occupies less than an acre of the 14-acre Escuela site. Read more »

Video: Soccer team goes under ice bucket

Despite all the ice-bucket fundraising on social media, this is the first Rancho Murieta ice-bucket challenge that has come our way.   Owen Carmichael, a 7-year-old member of the King Cobras, a boys soccer team, suggested the team take the challenge to honor ALS victim Pete Frates.  So the other evening at Stonehouse Park, a dozen boys (and their coaches) got doused with icy water, raised money for ALS and challenged other teams to do the same.

The Chicago Tribute Authority gave summer a send-off  to remember Saturday night at Lake Clementia Amphitheater with the trademark horns and repertoire begun in the '60s by the legendary rock band Chicago. With a sliver of moon and a sky full of stars as a backdrop, the troupe of eight musicians gave virtuoso performances of “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Make Me Smile,” “Questions 67 and 68,” “Saturday in the Park” and other songs that kept the dance floor crowded. The evening’s festivities began with a couple of flyovers by a patriotically decorated plane. The concert was presented by Entertainment, Theatre & Culture, which has an October show planned.
