Cheers and Jeers: Nugget puts Yolo on the map again

From page A10 | January 24, 2014 |

We offer our cheers and jeers for local newsmakers as we look back over the previous week:

CHEERS to Nugget Market for making us proud once again. For the ninth year in a row, the local family-owned grocery chain has landed a spot on Fortune Magazine’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For.

Nugget came in at No. 36 for 2013, up from 37th last year. The company placed as high was fifth in 2010, just behind Google Inc.

We all know Nugget is a great place to shop, and the folks who are fortunate enough to call the Stille family their employers know it’s a great place to work, too. CEO Eric Stille prides himself on understanding what motivates his employees: “Help them reach their goals and they’ll run through walls for you,” he says. “We’re all in this together.”

Cheers also to Edward Jones financial advisers, No. 4 on the list, and Whole Foods Market, No. 44.

JEERS to the growing sight in our local parks of teenagers smoking marijuana right out in the open. On a recent trip to the skateboard bowl in Community Park, we spotted pot smokers and called the police. After waiting 40 minutes, no officers showed up.

We know police may be busy with other, more pressing, matters. But our public parks — where we hang out with our young children and our pets — should be free of criminal activity.

CHEERS to Gov. Jerry Brown for declaring an official drought state of emergency for California. Although Yolo County is not one of the most stressed counties, as a contiguous county our farmers also are eligible for some disaster assistance.

And JEERS to Mother Nature for putting us in this position. C’mon now, bring us some long-overdue rain!

CHEERS to new Davis Little League president Paul Hasson and players like Adam Dapkewicz, a Harper Junior High School student, who are getting the Little League complex in shape for the upcoming season with a community cleanup day on Saturday.

Everyone’s invited to come out to the fields at Covell Boulevard and F Street between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday to help refurbish the announcer’s box, build shade structures, fix the fences and generally clean the park. Bring tools, wheelbarrows, rakes and work gloves if you have them. Lunch will be provided.
