Activists want to replace racist El Dorado gravestones

EL DORADO COUNTY, CA - Nowhere is America's openly racist past more obvious than in a Gold Rush-era cemetery that straddles the Sacramento-El Dorado County line.

The Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery was created in 1954 because the construction of nearby Folsom Dam would soon inundate pioneer cemeteries along the American River.

Among the many headstones at the relocation cemetery are three dozen plain markers identifying the final resting place of 36 African American pioneers who were originally buried in a community called Negro Hill.

The plain stone markers, however, carry the inscription "UNKNOWN - MOVED FROM NIGGER HILL CEMETERY BY US GOVERNMENT - 1954."

Ralph White, president of the Stockton Black Leadership Council and a former Stockton city councilman, believes the inscription was an intentional insult by a federal project manager at the time.

"Who would even do that?" White asked.

National Study Showing Increase in Cosmetic Surgery for Men Reflected in Sacramento Patients

Statistics just released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in men increased in 2010 compared to 2009.

Individual male surgical procedures that showed significant increase included:

Facelifts for men rose 14 percent in 2010, while male liposuction increased 7 percent.

In total, men underwent more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures in 2010, both minimally invasive and surgical. Also, according to the ASPS, the majority of men’s top 10 fastest growing procedures are surgical, bucking the previous trend in the growth of minimally invasive treatments.
