Six Flags Discovery Kingdom hosts annual job fair

FAIRFIELD - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom will host its annual Job Fair to hire up to 400 of the 1,400 seasonal positions needed for the 2011 operating season, on Saturday, Jan. 29, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the University of Phoenix, 5253 Business Center Drive, Suite B in Fairfield.

The regional wildlife, oceanarium and theme park opens to the public on March 19.

As evidenced by its job fair last year when park officials saw a 50 percent increase over the prior year, officials once again expect a healthy increase from last year of job fair attendees.

Vacaville PAL to hold judo tournament; Community support needed
VACAVILLE - The Vacaville Police Activities League will hold a "Battle for the Star" Judo Tournament on Feb. 27 starting at 10 a.m. at Vacaville High School on Monte Vista Avenue. The tournament is a primary fundraiser for the non-profit's Makimoto Judo Club.

Due to recent budget cuts and increased costs to host the tournament, organizers are in urgent need of community and business donations to pull off the event. In addition to the local tournament, the group needs enough funds to fly their 11-member team plus 3-4 chaperones to a national judo tournament in Ohio in July.

All proceeds from the tournament in February will go to the team's expenses. Donations are tax deductible. For more information about the Police Activities League, Makimoto Judo Club or how you can help the team reach their financial goals, call Jocelyne at (707) 332-0388.
