About This Blog
The Newton Booth Neighborhood Blog has been created under the leadership of the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association, which covers the Poverty Ridge, Newton Booth, and Alhambra Triangle neighborhoods in Sacramento, California. The boundaries of the Association are: 19th Street on the west side; R Street to the north; 34th Street to the east; and Highway 50 on the south side.
The purpose of this neighborhood blog is to help foster a sense of community by spreading information about neighborhood events (and events of interest in the larger Sacramento community), neighborhood issues, and other general information about the neighborhood. We welcome your comments and suggestions as to what you’d like to see in this blog, as this is for you, our neighbors.
The blogger, Dairl Helmer, is a records clerk for a Sacramento law firm by day; a sometime writer and publisher of the local news and entertainment ‘zine Broccoli, Cheese & Crackers; and a resident of Sacramento since 2000 (and of this neighborhood since 2003). He is also currently a member of the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association Board.
