Fair Oaks woman claims website ruined her reputation

FAIR OAKS, CA - Lisa-Claire Sanwall is trying to defend her reputation from an online dating website she claims she never joined.

Sanwall believes information posted on Badoo.com is standing in the way of her landing a job.

"I was interviewing for jobs but I never heard back from employers, I feared something was wrong," Sanwall said.

Sanwall googled herself and discovered an online profile had been created on Badoo.com listing her as a "free online dating girl."

"I was horrified, it made me sound like a hooker, I never joined that site or knew anything about it," Sanwall said.

Sanwall believes parts of her Facebook profile, including a photo, was lifted by Badoo.com.

"I have tried to contact Badoo.com to remove any links about me but I'm not having much luck," Sanwall said.

Tech experts said guard your profile information closely and never write anything online you don't want everyone to know.

Furry birds sighted in Carmichael

Furry birds sighted in Carmichael

The nearly endless rains have ended for now. The sun is out, and it is finally starting to look like Spring.  The birds are chirping, and gratefully nibbling on the sunflower seeds many Carmichael residents put in their bird feeders.  Just one problem in my yard.  Some rather large, and furry birds have taken over the bird feeder.   And as many of us know, those furry birds have yet to find a bird feeder that is squirrel proof.

'15 minutes' Grim Reaper goes after cellphones

FAIR OAKS, CA - If you've been to one of these "every 15 minutes" presentations, you know the Grim Reaper appears to show teens the potential consequences of drunk driving. Now he's also going after cellphones.

"Today it hits home because they know these people, and they know things like that do happen in the streets," said Bob Wegsteen, Vice Principal of Bella Vista High School.

Real funeral workers pushed out a real casket as students watched in horror. Teens, they know and care about, followed with flowers.

"It kinda gives us that realization that could be me inside that casket," said student Noah Marquez. "So yeah, it's a little bit creepy."

The mock funeral in the gym marked the conclusion of a two-day presentation. The California Highway Patrol, fire departments, and even insurance companies all noticed the need to include distracted driving in the discussion of deadly practices.

Contributor of the Month: Blogger Catherine Enfield

Contributor of the Month: Blogger Catherine Enfield

The contributor of the month piece will highlight a My Neighborhood blogger who has posted multiple pieces during the month and is doing something exciting. The contributor of the month is picked by News10 My Neighborhood staff.

I met up with Catherine Enfield at the Sugar and Spice Bakery at 12th and F. Bakery Owner Carissa went about her afternoon as she baked more treats and helped patrons pick out their perfect dessert.

Catherin and I stood in the corner and chatted about her blog Munchie Musings.

“The Munchie Musings is actually an appropriate title because if I had to think of a mission statement it would be thoughts, musings, about food and life,” Catherine explained.
