Back in 1861, the Pony Express, whose long western route ended right here in Sacramento, was put out of business by the development of the telegraph. I can imagine a Pony Express rider muttering under his breath “dang technology.”

River City Bank is proud of the men and women of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) who risk their lives every day to make our motorways safe. Their service makes it possible for us to travel safely and they provide assistance if we have an unanticipated delay. Just as the CHP watches out for motorists, The California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP) watches out for CHP officers and their families.
The CAHP is a non-profit organization which supports those who serve in the CHP in a variety of ways. Led by the current CEO, Jon Hamm, the CAHP negotiates with the state of California’s Department of Human Resources for working conditions for CHP officers. In addition, the CAHP helps its members with labor relations, health benefits, legal representation for job-related issues, and an array of other membership services. read more

A recent Bloomberg article reported that in an effort to trim more than $1.7 billion in quarterly expenses, the financial lender Wells Fargo & Co may be looking to send jobs overseas to India and the Philippines. While the company already has several employees abroad, a Wells Fargo representative said that it planned an additional “streamlining of some operations to the most cost-effective locations” including its customer service roles. read more
