This week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from Sacramento, California. Right now, the city is ground zero in one of the worst Southwest droughts in recent history. Sacramento Fire Chief Walt White talks about the wildfire situation—and also what off-the-brochure restaurants keep him and his firefighters fueled so they can keep Sacramento safe. There are dozens of great choices, because Sacramento is not just the capital of California, but is also the self-proclaimed “Farm-to-Fork Capital of the U.S.” and has compelling reasons to support that claim. How many farms are within a 30-mile radius of the capital? The answer might surprise you.
Craig McNamara, Founder of the Center for Land-Based Learning, gives us some remarkably practical advice about living—and traveling—more sustainably. Then, Lial Jones, Executive Director of the Crocker Art Museum, explains some of its more unusual exhibitions and programs, including one on art and pain management. There’s all of this and more when Travel Today with Peter Greenberg broadcasts from Sacramento, California.
Jason Coldiron and George Purtell talk about the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings.
We are live and back at it in our NBA preview. Ti Windisch is back to talk Sacramento Kings basketball tonight. Also we go into the Phil Jackson/Derek Fisher/Kobe Bryant triangle, and what could happen after this season. Also NFL Week 3 is almost in the books, and we look at some crazy stats from last week going into today, and preview the Monday night game. Deontay Wilder defended his Heavyweight Title in great fashion last night, so we gotta talk some Boxing. Also the GGG vs Lemieux preview for Oct. 17th. The Real MVP is back, along with Ryan's Power Rankings, and some MLB playoff baseball chat.
Brian Malow is Earth’s Premier Science Comedian (self-proclaimed). He regularly proves that science is just as rife for parody and solid comedic story telling as anything else that can be found under the sun (which as it happens is not exactly as They Might Be Giants tells us it is).
A Sacramento grandmother fled the state of California in fear for her very life, while the grandchildren she cared for have been seized by the state, with no apparent evidence of any wrongdoing by the grandmother.
All Ann King wanted to do was to love and care for her grandchildren while the parents were unable to, allowing the babies to grow up connected to their own family roots. Apparently, that was too much to ask from Sacramento County CPS, because no one in the family even knows where the children are anymore.

SACRAMENTO, California — With wildfires blazing throughout the parched Western United States, the state of California has found a novel, though ethically questionable, way to save money on the state’s safety budget: Send state prisoners to work on the frontlines fighting forest fires for $2 per day.
“More than 100 wildfires are burning across the West — destroying dozens of homes, forcing hundreds of people to flee and stretching firefighting budgets to the breaking point,” wrote Tim Stelloh for NBC News on Monday. For California, he reported, that means some 14,000 firefighters combating 19 forest fires, including the “Jerusalem fire,” which covered over 25,000 acres before being mostly contained as of Saturday. “[T]he blaze — along with six others — was still sending smoke south across the San Francisco Bay Area,” Stelloh wrote.
About 4,000 low-level felons from California’s state prisons are fighting the fires, operating out of so-called “conservation camps,” according to Julia Lurie, writing on Friday for Mother Jones. “Between 30 and 40 percent of California’s forest firefighters are state prison inmates,” she reported. Inmates who committed certain offenses, like sex crimes or arson, are blocked from entering the firefighting program. Prisoners work in 24-hour shifts during forest fire season, followed by 24 hours off. Prisoners earn $2 a day just by being in the program, plus an additional $2 an hour when they are actively fighting fires.
