But first, you need to know about today’s weather: It’ll be another hot, NorCal summer day today with highs expected to reach 99 degrees. We’ll cool down tonight to about 62. Winds remain in the 5-15 mph range and humidity should stay about 31%-44%.

Here are the top stories today in Roseville:

  1. Caltrans is doing some major repaving on the connector ramps between I-80 and SR-65 through Thursday of next week. The following ramps will be closed from 10:00 pm to 5:00 am in an alternating pattern: southbound SR-65 connector to eastbound I-80, eastbound I-80 connector to northbound SR-65 and westbound I-80 connector to northbound SR-65. Visit the Caltrans website for exact schedules and detour routes. (Caltrans)
  2. Roseville Police are investigating an armed robbery of the Walmart on Pleasant Grove Blvd. that happened around 6:00 pm on Sunday night. Three suspects stole an as yet undetermined amount of electronics from the store, with one suspect brandishing a gun at an employee as the three left. In addition to the three, there may have been an additional person driving a get-away car. (KCRA)
  3. Tickets are now on sale for the Tommy Apostolos Fund Annual Dinner/Dance on August 21st! This fun evening of delicious food, raffles, an auction, music and dancing raises money to supply over 500 schoolchildren each year with clothing and school essentials. Tickets range in price from $40 for Roseville teachers to $225 for two-ticket package that sponsors a child for the fund’s shopping day. Get your tickets before they sell out. (
  4. As fire crews from around the state continue to battle the 30,000 plus acre Dixie Fire, Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) has admitted that a blown fuse from one of its power lines may be to blame. CalFire investigators have gathered up equipment from the area near Bucks Creek in Butte County, the suspected place of origin of the blaze, for further inspection. (CBS Sacramento)
  5. According to a list issued by the Secretary of State’s Office, 41 candidates will run in the California election to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom set for September 14. It seems like a lot of hopefuls for one office, but it is a smaller group than the 135 who ran in the election to recall Gov. Gray Davis in 2003. Check out the list, including the candidates’ party affiliations (or lack thereof). (Sacramento Bee)
