Kudos to: Placer County inmates

Accomplishment: Created 300 Christmas toy patrol cars, ducks and boats for children

Details: Inmate Bari Johnson is a talented woodworker and inmate Scott Flores wanted to help because he has children on the outside and it made him feel good to help other kids. Female inmates also contributed by helping with painting and quality control. Materials for the toys were either donated or purchased by jail staff with their own money.

Kudos to: Derrick Whitehead, former director of Roseville's Environmental Utilities

Accomplishment: Received distinguished service award from Regional Water Authority

Kudos to: Volunteers for Ombudsman Services of Northern California

Accomplishment: For donating 8,400 hours of advocacy in the Sacramento region's long-term care facilities

Details: The ombudsmen investigated and resolved 2,600 complaints on behalf of the elderly. Complaints ranged from cold food to abuse and neglect.
