Surprise Scott Road work continues

[Update in the comments] As many Murietans have learned the hard way, county road crews have been working on Scott Road, and backing up traffic, for the last two days. There have been no official announcements about the work. We are told, unofficially, that it will continue Thursday. We are trying to get confirmation of the county's work plans from Supervisor Sue Frost's office. In the meantime, you can check the traffic map to see the state of Scott Road backups.

'Dog Days of Summer' tournament

Post by Rancho Murieta Women's Golf Club
Rancho Murieta Women’s Golf Club hosted the RM Niners in the “Dog Days of Summer” Tournament on Aug. 29 on the South Course.  The tournament term generally refers to the hottest days of summer, but golfers were pleasantly pleased when the heat held off a bit until the end of the 18 holes.  The format was a Texas Scramble with a twist, whereas each member of a team had to have a drive each for from the Par 5’s and Par 3’s.  Some of us certainly saved our “mulligans” just in case we found ourselves in trouble! Teams of mixed Niners and 18 Holers enjoyed a wonderful luncheon at the end of tournament. Congratulations to all winners! Read more »

Elton John tribute wraps up ETC season

Kenny Metcalf as Elton John

→ Photo gallery: the crowd and the show (30 photos)

Kenny Metcalf and his band of singers and musicians brought the music and spirit of Elton John to Lake Clementia Amphitheater Saturday night for the last show of Entertainment, Theatre & Culture's summer series before a crowd ETC estimated at 800. The virtuoso performance channeled 1970s Elton John, from the signature platform shoes, sequined jumpsuit and eyeglasses to the keyboard mastery and vocals that produced “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Crocodile Rock” and a host of other hits. The evening began with a thank-you to this year's ETC volunteers and board members. In his encore comments, Metcalf spoke of a serious illness that nearly took his life a dozen years ago and the joy of his performances, which he was delighted to share with the crowd. Then he performed "Your Song." (Click photo for larger image.)
