Sunday's open houses in Rancho Murieta

    CSD adds 500 catfish to Laguna Joaquin

    Fish in Laguna Joaquin

    Ten weeks after a fish kill left hundreds of fish dead in Laguna Joaquin, the Community Services District made good on the first half of its promise to restock the lake. Tuesday morning, with CSD and Rancho Murieta Association staffers on hand, Ryan Mahoney of Freshwater Fish of Elk Grove poured several barrels with 500 catfish into the lake. They'll be followed by bass, probably in several months, after the catfish have had a chance to grow. CSD paid Freshwater $2,000 for Tuesday's fish. (Click photo for larger image.)

    Murieta's cutest Halloween tradition

    Trick or treat

    A trick-or-treat stop? We don't think so

    Halloween decorations

    Maybe someone can explain, but many Murietans reacted with surprise as they passed the remains of the burned-out home at Murieta Parkway and Camino Del Lago. Somehow the home has been decorated for Halloween. On Sunday there were pumpkins and ghosts in the windows, a bit of orange and black streamers and a witch's hat hanging from the tree.
