AM Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Monday

Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, April 27.

Throwin’ heat at Raley Field: It’s baseball weather in spring. Chances are good that temperatures will still be in the 80s when the first pitch is thrown at tonight’s River Cats’ game. The high on Monday is expected to be reach 88 degrees in Sacramento.

College closures: Sunday’s abrupt announcement by Corinthian Colleges that it’s closing 28 schools, including several Heald campuses in the Sacramento area, caught scores of students by surprise. At 9 a.m. today, some students are gathering at the Roseville campus, asking for answers.

Show me the money: In August, the FPPC signed a settlement agreement with Elk Grove City Councilman Steven Detrick that he’d repaid $100,000 in campaign funds used to pay his son’s legal bills. Months later, the political watchdog agency says he never repaid the money.

Nepal digs out: As a California search-and-rescue team arrives Monday in Nepal, those with friends and family in the earthquake-stricken country await word on survivors. A Nepalese group in Northern California is trying to help.

Slashing suspect in court: North Highlands slashing suspect Juan Avalos faces arraignment 1:30 p.m. today in Sacramento Superior Court. Avalos, 28, is accused of a deadly attack on a North Highlands motorist late Wednesday, slashing the woman’s throat from behind as she returned to her car from a random encounter with Avalos.
