From Germany to Elk Grove--An "Au Pair's" American Adventure

Elk Grove, Calif. -- Arriving in America only three weeks ago, Laura Tienes enjoys an iced coffee as she tells me about her position as an "au pair" hosted by an Elk Grove family. A 20-year-old woman filled with anticipation about experiencing America's culture, Laura will live with the host family for one year working 45 hours each week as an "active " childcare provider.

As an au pair, Laura becomes a family member who participates in household activities, including all childcare needs from getting them to and from school, meal preparation, laundry, cleaning the children's rooms, homework assistance and supervising "play dates."

But it's not all work -- an au pair often joins fun activities that include the entire family. Laura's host family loves camping. She's been in California only three weeks and has already camped at at Morro Bay!

Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission: Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission:  Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Todd Gearou, Sacramento based film producer, remembers well moving to Sacramento at age 15, with horror sweeping our communities as the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker continued his rampage of terror.  Having committed 50+ rapes and 10 murders attributed to the East Area Rapist, he, if still alive or not imprisoned, is nightmarishly still at large.  Says Gearou, “anyone who lived in the Sacramento area during the late 1970s will easily recall the overwhelming fear that California’s most prolific serial rapist and possibly future murderer had over this area.” 

Gearou, like many others, including law enforcement, often wondered what happened to this night phantom some 26 years after his last murder in Irvine, Ca (1986).
