Community Health Assessment & Related Public Forums

The Yolo County Health Department, through the Healthy Yolo campaign, is working on the Healthy Yolo 2014 Community Health Assessment.  The Community Health Assessment is the process used to examine the health of Yolo County and to identify areas where organizations, policy-makers and residents can work together to improve our community’s health.  Gathering and reviewing statistical information, such as the rate of deaths from heart disease and prevalence of risk factors that affect health outcomes, is complete.  The next step is to share this information with residents and seek their input regarding the health of our community.

Fairfield police shoot 2 men sought in separate shoootings


FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Northern California say officers shot two armed suspects who were being sought for attempted murder.

Fairfield police say the shootings occurred when federal investigators tracked down 27-year-old Markell Davis of Fairfield behind a Walmart Thursday afternoon. An agent shot Davis who was carrying a handgun. Officers did not say if Davis shot at the investigators.

Police then confronted a second suspect in the area, 33-year-old Cory Davis of Suisun City, about 30 minutes later. Officers shot Cory Davis, who also was carrying a gun.

Both suspects were taken to a local hospital. Their conditions are not known.

No officers were injured.

The suspects were being sought in connection with two separate shootings in Fairfield and nearby Vacaville in February. It is not known if they are related.

Weekly Challenge #13: Appreciate your Body (Positive Self-Talk)!

Weekly Challenge #13: Appreciate your Body (Positive Self-Talk)!

2014 Weekly Challenge #13: Appreciate your Body (Positive Self-Talk)!

In earlier challenges, we focused on being grateful and positive instead of negative and complaining. The whole purpose of those challenges was to realize that what you say and think makes a difference in how you act and feel. Whatever you focus on is what you feed, and what you feed grows. If all you think about is what you don't have, your dissatisfaction grows; if most of what you say comes out as a complaint, you forget to see the positive.

This week's challenge builds on that idea.
