Insight: Arts in Sacramento / Frankie the Dog / High School Debate / Kushman by the Bottle


 
 
Arts in Sacramento The landscape of Sacramento's arts scene has changed in the past decade with a recession and two large-scale venues (Mondavi and Three Stages) that attract big name national acts and offer people in the suburbs a shorter commute.  The Sacramento Ballet, the Sacramento Philharmonic, and the Sacramento Opera are the organizations taking the biggest hit.  After years of deficit the ballet is performing this year's Nutcracker without a live orchestra for the first time and the philharmonic is considering merging with the opera to stay afloat. Read the NPR story about Dayton, Ohio's opera, philharmonic, and ballet succesfully merging to solve budget problems.

Frankie the Dog Frankie is a dog whose story shows how a terrible act by one person can summon the good will of many.  The little terrier mix was tied to a tree near Foresthill with a broken jaw and broken paw -left for dead.  Fortunately a camper found Frankie after days of searching and took him to Dr. Juricek at the Pinole Pet Hospital, who saved Frankie's life.  The Placer County Sheriff's Department is currently searching for Frankie's abuser(s).  We first spoke about Frankie (also known as Butch) during Insight's News Network Tuesday, October 2 and UC Davis veterinarians are currently reconstructing his face.  To donate to Frankie's recovery fund click HERE.
