Getting His Chocolate Fix on Prairie City Road

When I think of Chocolate, I think of See’s candies, their Chocolate Truffles is sex in a bite.   Or Ginger Elizabeth’s on L Street, their Hot Chocolate will make your eyes roll to the back of your head.

I’m bacck!

When I think of Chocolate, I don’t think of Safeway.  When I think of Safeway, I think Ground Beef,  Lucerne Ice Cream.    But that’s me.  When twenty year old Rodney Gaston thinks Chocolate, he thinks Safeway, at least he did Sunday night.

The man from Merced, reportedly filled his cart with more than a thousand dollars in candy, at the Folsom Safeway on Prairie Road.  He bypassed the cashiers and jumped  into a waiting car.

He was stopped on Highway 50 and was identified by Safeway employees.

“Not so Sweet”

The Candy man didn’t get a chance to lay his finger on a Butterfinger before he was taken to Sac’s most famous highrise*  The Sacramento County Jail where home cheese faces charges of burglary and grand theft.

No word on the driver of the car, perhaps they got a sweet deal.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
