California law requires every county in the State to prepare, adopt, and update on a regular cycle the general plan housing element, which describes how the County can best meet the community’s housing needs through the development of local housing programs.

You are invited to attend a Housing Roundtable on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. at the Sutter County Health Department Auditorium, 1445 Veterans Memorial Circle, to discuss the County’s 2013-2021 General Plan Housing Element Update.

Please join us and provide your input on housing needs, issues, and opportunities in Sutter County.

CalMHSA: Associated Press Stylebook to Drop Use of Term Mentally Ill
March 11, 2013

Please see below for a message from CalMHSA Board President, Dr. Wayne Clark:

Dear Mental Health Partners,

Our collective effort to change public attitudes around mental illness took a giant step forward today: The Associated Press, an international news organization, will include guidelines for reporting on mental illness in its influential AP Stylebook. Known as the "The Journalists' Bible" for its influence on the media industry, the publication is widely used by print, broadcast and online newsrooms and taught in journalism classes, so the new guidelines present an opportunity to significantly improve the way the news industry reports on mental illness.

The new entry in The Associated Press Stylebook directs news media to avoid describing people as mentally ill unless someone’s mental health is clearly pertinent to a story and the person’s diagnosis is properly sourced. The new entry addresses the assumption that mental illness is a factor in violent crime and identifies that people with mental illness are more likely to be victims of crime rather than perpetrators. It also suggests a more precise use of language, such as avoiding derogatory terms in health and non-health stories.

Ribbon Cutting Scheduled for New Museum Patio
March 06, 2013

The Sutter Buttes Garden Club and the Community Memorial Museum of Sutter County are co-hosting a ribbon cutting and celebration for the opening of the Schnabel and Dean Patio on Friday, March 15th at 2:00 p.m. The new patio is located adjacent to Ettl Hall just behind the Museum.

The expansive patio and fence were gifts to the Community Memorial Museum from the Schnabel family to honor their parents Randolph A. and Shirley Dean Schnabel, who were longtime Museum supporters and descendants of early Sutter County pioneers.

The patio landscaping and beautification was a project and donation of the Sutter Buttes Garden Club, whose members have labored over a year to bring the project to completion. It includes a fountain in front of a large vine-entwined arch, benches, and artful plantings, bringing an expanded area for use with the newly built Ettl Hall. The hall and patio are available for rental to the community for events.

The public is welcome to attend the ribbon cutting event. Admission is free. For more information, call the Museum at 822-7141.
