Elk Grove Schools

Get ready for yet another round of budget cuts to the Elk Grove Unified School District-------it's not going to be pretty especially if an extension of some current taxes isn't approved by the voters come June........the real problem for the school district is that they have to come up with a rough budget soon because by law they have to issue layoff notices to teachers and other district staff by the middle of next month......what it means is that the district has to come up with a couple of plans----they have to assume they'll get alot less money (if the tax extensions aren't approved) for one plan and they'll get a little less money (if the tax extensions are approved) for the second plan.........either way there are plenty of good, young, and qualified teachers who will be looking for jobs and for their own protection will need to try to line something up on their own timetable and not the districts.......what it also means is that once again our kids will suffer as so

Matriarch of Bogle wine family dies

SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) -- Patty Bogle, the matriarch of a wine dynasty in the Sacramento delta region, has died after a battle with leukemia.

Bogle and her late husband, Chris, founded Bogle Vineyards in 1979, starting with 18 acres of grapes and building their business into a regional wine powerhouse. The vineyard is the 14th largest winery in the country, shipping 1.2 million cases a year.

Patty Bogle's son, Warren Bogle Jr., told The Sacramento Bee that his mother died Friday. She was 59.

The Bogles started the winery with modest goals, but the business soon took off. Patty Bogle said in a 2009 interview that "it grew as demand grew."

She championed petite sirah, a grape that produces rich, red wine and grows well in Clarksburg, 20 miles south of Sacramento.
