Life Under Water is a Booming Metropolis!

Life Under Water is a Booming Metropolis!

Things have settled down it seems with regard to struggling homeowners, loan modifications that never seem to come, short sales and foreclosures. Rest assured the struggles are not over. Just because the news is not reporting to the degree they have in years past does not mean homeowners are not grappling with what to do about the plummeting values of their homes versus the higher dollar values they still owe – life underwater is a booming metropolis!

Most of the people I speak with are angry and simply tired of struggling. They are angry that not a single banking executive has been held accountable for the corruption and deceit in the collapse of the mortgage industry and they are out of options to keep the house they love.

Volunteers gave free medical, dental and vision care to more than 5,000 patients, many who are not insured or underinsured.

"We don't have insurance. That's why we came in here," 17-year-old Dhania Tinoco said.

Tinoco and her younger siblings received glasses for the first time in their lives.

"I had to sit all the time up in front. But now, I don't have to ask my teachers if I can sit in front. I can sit wherever," Tinoco said.

Many others went to the clinic to receive dental care.

Estoria Holmes, a 35-year-old mother of five, said her gums have been in pain for several months. She needed a tooth pulled, but couldn't afford the surgery.

"It had gotten infected, so thank goodness this was available for me to get it done," Holmes said.

Kings' Keith Smart reflects on NCAA title heroics 25 years ago

SACRAMENTO, CA - Before becoming the Kings new head coach, Keith Smart was never the pampered star athlete while growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisana.

"I got cut from the 11th grade team that won the state championship that year," said Smart. "And then the next year I broke my wrist in the 3rd game into my senior season and that was it for high school."

That meant no scholarship offers or college recruiters for Smart, who ended up at a junior college in Kansas.

"So my best friend went off to school at Garden State Community college and I went to school with him." said Smart. "And they had an open tryout and I tried out for the team and that's how it happened"

What happens if you win the now $640M Mega Millions jackpot?

SACRAMENTO, CA -  Do you have your ticket yet? 

The clock is ticking for you to get your Mega Millions lottery ticket.  The jackpot now stands at a whopping $640 million. 

The drawing is set for Friday night at 8 p.m. PDT.  All together, 42 states are taking part in Mega Millions.  And the frenzy is growing about as fast as the jackpot itself.

First, says Woodward, sign your name on the back of the lottery ticket.  Make yourself a copy, then place the ticket in a sandwich bag and immediately deposit the winning ticket in a bank safe deposit box.

Second, he said, call the telephone company and get an unlisted number.  Share that number with just close family members and your professional advisors.
