Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Monday, May 4.
Feel that breeze: The Delta breeze is expected to keep Sacramento-area weather pleasantly temperate into the workweek. The temperature is expected to hit 82 Monday, according to the National Weather Service. It will stay similar Tuesday. But change is on the way including the possibility of Sierra showers by Thursday.
Internment-camp artifacts find home: The Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles has acquired nearly 450 internment-camp artifacts set for auction. “Star Trek” actor George Takei helped broker the deal. A Facebook page – Japanese American History NOT for sale – started in Sacramento, played a role in saving the artifacts from auction.
‘Sacramento Boy’ wins Bassmaster: Justin Lucas won the $100,000 prize in the four-day Bassmaster Elite Series tournament in the Sacramento River and the Delta, which wrapped up Sunday. He grew up fishing these parts, never fathoming the professional and financial rewards the local waters would someday provide.
Never miss a local story.
