Insight: Think BIG / SacPress / History of the Central Valley Wetlands / Blues Guitarist Matt Schofield

Think BIG The Think BIG Committee, a regional initiative launched by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to facilitate construction of a new entertainment and sports complex in downtown Sacramento, has selected some of its "Citizen Architects." Citizen Architects are "regular people" and community leaders who will be insiders to the latest developments surrounding the initiative and will be responsible for securing supporters throughout the region for construction of a new arena. We'll hear the latest from the Think BIG team, and talk with a couple of the Citizen Architects about what they're actually doing.

SacPress In our regular weekly segment, SacramentoPress.com Editor-in-Chief David Watts Barton tells us about some local issues in the news this week.

History of the Central Valley Wetlands "The Fall and Rise of the Wetlands of California's Great Central Valley" is the first comprehensive environmental history of the entire Central Valley, from the Native American period to the present, told through the lens of wetlands. We'll speak with Philip Garone, an associate professor of history at California State University Stanislaus.  He holds a Ph.D. in History and an M.S. in Ecology from the University at California at Davis.

Blues Guitarist Matt Schofield "Local boy" blues guitarist Matt Schofield grew up in Placerville and got his start playing with local blues artists like Mick Martin.  He currently lives in the United Kingdom and has been touring in the United States for the last three months.  He and his band roll into California this week, starting in Santa Cruz and coming to Harlow's in Sacramento this Friday.
