A.M. Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday

Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Tuesday, Jan. 26:

Umbrella optimists: Only the optimistic will bring the umbrella today. The forecast for 30 percent chance of precipitation projected earlier by the National Weather Service for Sacramento is now placed at 20 percent. The month marches on toward being the driest January in Sacramento since pioneers first began keeping records in the 1800s.

Measles test result: Sacramento County public health officials say results of tests performed on an individual suspected of having measles have been delayed and probably will be available Tuesday.

Pay hike for top brass: The San Juan Unified School District board will discuss at tonight’s meeting giving Superintendent Kent Kern and 11 other administrators a 4.5 percent raise. The retroactive increase would mirror what most of the district’s other employees are receiving this school year.

Too close for comfort? Neighborhood activists opposed to a low-income apartment building near Country Club Plaza are calling on Sacramento County Supervisor Susan Peters to abstain from voting on the project at today’s Board of Supervisors meeting. They say that she is personally and politically too close to apartment developer Steve Eggert.

G for grit: So your kid got straight A’s. But how’d he score in grit? Or how’d she do in being sensitive to other people’s feelings? Elementary schools are going well beyond the traditional report card and measuring qualities that can’t be scored through tests.

Local sports: None scheduled.
