Public Safety Realignment & Prop. 47 Planning: Second Session Added in Davis

Public Safety Realignment & Prop. 47 Planning: Second Session Added in Davis

Assembly Bill 109, Public Safety Realignment, was enacted in 2011 in an effort to reduce state prison overcrowding by placing supervision and incarceration responsibilities for non-serious, non-sexual and non-violent offenders with local county criminal justice systems.  Adding to those responsibilities, Californians passed Proposition 47 in November which reduced penalties for certain offenders convicted of certain property and drug crimes and which allows certain offenders who have been previously convicted of such crimes to apply for reduced sentences.  In addition, the measure requires any state savings that result be spent to support truancy (unexcused absences) prevention, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and victim services.

Peak Season for Artichokes

Peak Season for Artichokes

Alana Sugar

Steamed Artichokes with Creamy Walnut Dip

My mother loved artichokes.  Every spring, she would steam fresh artichokes and serve with either a lemon-melted butter sauce or sweetened vinegar dipping sauce. They were delicious! 

Artichokes are native to the Mediterranean. Italy, France and Spain are the largest producers. In the US, California produces close to 100% of all of our artichokes. They’re at their peak from March through May, so now is the perfect time to steam some fresh artichokes.

With just a little prep work, you’ll be on your way to artichoke heaven!
