Hot conditions force Folsom Cattle Drive cancellation

Wednesday's hot weather forecast has forced the cancellation of the Folsom Cattle Drive, which is the kick off for the city's professional rodeo event, coordinators announced Tuesday.

"We feel the safety of the public especially children and seniors who love to watch this annual tradition is vital so we are addressing this issue proactively," Grand Marshall of the Folsom Pro Rodeo and board member Marshal Crossan said.

As temperatures cool on Thursday, July 2, the Folsom Chamber of Commerce said fans are invited to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday weekend with rodeo action, motocross and spectacular nightly fireworks.

The chamber said attendees will be able to stay cool this year thanks to Big Fogg -- a 15-by-15 foot high pressure, inflatable mister.

Folsom man builds casino for HBO's 'True Detective'

If you watch HBO's True Detective then you have already been to Vinci Gardens, a fictitious casino run by Vince Vaughn's character Frank Semyon. Eric Cieri, owner of 916 Poker Depot in Folsom designed and created the set.

The road to Hollywood has been a long one. Cieri turned a hobby into a business with just $100.

"There was a time when I woke up at six in the morning and worked until after midnight, seven days a week for months and months on end," Cieri said.

His company now sits on 8,000 square feet and includes a workshop, showroom and offices, but it certainly didn't start out that way.

"I wanted to make a custom poker table that would entertain my friends and family and they could come over and we could have a good time," he said.

In spite of being a third generation woodworker, Cieri said he had no idea how to make a poker table.
