School Bus Collision + Recall Ballots Arrive + Vax Proof for Sac?


It’s me again, Kelly Risse, your regular curator of the Roseville Daily. What was supposed to be a lovely vacation last week in Montana with family turned into a tragic tale of COVID and gruesome toe injury for me and my better half. Sparing you all the gory details, I will say that the delta variant is no joke – vaccinated or not. Stay healthy out there, folks.

I hope you had fun with our awesome Roseville Daily subs Madison Feser and Ash DeMello, who jumped into action to keep you all up to date in my absence.

Ok, let’s get to it!

First, you need to know about today’s weather:

It looks like we get a reprieve from the recent heat wave with an expected high of 93 degrees today, and a low of 61 tonight. Winds will be in the 5-10 mph range and humidity will be about 41% during the day.

Here are the top stories today in Roseville:

  1. Thirteen students and their bus driver were uninjured in a collision between a black Dodge Charger and a Roseville school bus yesterday morning on Hallissy Drive, near Buljan Middle School. Roseville Police and Roseville Fire responded to the incident that occurred at about 8:50am. The collision is being investigated by the California Highway Patrol. The driver of the Charger was transported to to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. (Roseville Police Facebook and Gold Country Media)
  2. California voters are getting Voter Information Guides and ballots in the mail this week for the California Gubernatorial Recall Election. Voters will be able to vote by mail, in person at a polling place or by drop box at several locations. At issue is whether or not to recall Governor Gavin Newsom, and who would take his place to finish out the term if the recall passes. (Gold Country Media)
  3. As the daily cases of the highly contagious delta variant of COVID rise, cities are scrambling to find ways to avoid another shutdown of their businesses. Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg is considering a new mandate that would require proof of vaccination to enter bars, restaurants, concert venues and gyms in the city. San Francisco and New York City have similar mandates already scheduled to launch in the coming weeks. (Subscription: Sacramento Bee)
