North Gate, old and new

At dusk Thursday, the new North Gate was alight and welcoming us home, and the old gate was a pile of rubble.  The gate, standing since Rancho Murieta's beginnings, 40-plus years ago, was demolished in a three-hour tear-down Thursday morning. Its small accompanying walls are scheduled to be demolished Friday. If you want to see the gate demolition on video, it's below.  Read more »

The North Gate got its surprise opening Monday morning, and pretty quickly it became like old times.  Some first-timers puzzled over the temporary sign, which assigns lanes for VISITOR and BARCODE.  Here's the Rancho Murieta Association report on last week's work at the gate, a project that's not done, even if the gate is open. Read more »

North Gate switch starts a day early

A caller advises that the Murieta Parkway traffic detour — sending outbound traffic around Lago Drive rather than straight out past the old and new North Gates — started Monday around 7:30 a.m., a day earlier than announced last week by the Rancho Murieta Association. Security confirms the change has happened. The switch will last three weeks, the RMA said, which will make it possible to demolish the old gate, build the turn onto Lago and do paving work.

Eight-year-old Macey Casagrande pulls her fourth fish from Lake Clementia during Sunday morning's Kids' Fishing Day at Lake Clementia.  (There's a smiling shot of Macey and Fish #4 in the Photo Galleries.) More than 130 kids — plus parents and grandparents — lined the shores and did their best to catch the 700 pounds of trout planted there. Fishing and lunch were free for the kids. The sponsors were Rancho Murieta Kiwanis Club, Rancho Murieta Fishing Club, Rancho Murieta Business Center, Plaza Foods and Fisherman's Warehouse.
