Journalist and Folsom Resident Christina Mendonsa

Cristina Mendonsa

When veteran journalist and Folsom resident Cristina Mendonsa left News10 in June,  many of us wondered about her next move.  Would she go to another station? Another career? Another town?

We caught up with Cristina today, and she said that although she’s currently interviewing in other media markets, she is happily producing a new series on Folsom, because, “I love this community and have raised a family here.”

So, while we’ve still got her around, we can look forward to installments of Cristina’s new venture with the Greater Folsom Partnership called, ‘Folsom Focus’.

Available to watch online and as a podcast, Folsom Focus is a new hyper-local video series offering an upbeat and unbiased look at the present and future of Folsom.

Her first installment is about the completion of the Johnny Cash trail, opening this weekend.

For fun, you might want to take a look at another feature from MyFolsom’s wayback machine, ’22 Questions with Cristina Mendonsa’ from about 2004. www.myfolsom.com/resident-guide/myfolsom-coms-20-questions/22-questions-with-cristina-mendonsa/

Lastly, get out there this weekend for the opening of the Johnny Cash Trail!

Johnny Cash Trail & Bridge - Feature

We recently published a post on the Johnny Cash Trail Grand Opening and Ceremony and now that the dust has settled, we went in for some amazing shots.

It is with great pleasure, we get to cover the Johnny Cash Bridge and Trail again. With stunning ground photography and aerial photography by local photographer; Anthony Occhipinti and edited by Brenan Greene, there is much to learn about this bridge and trail.

The Johnny Cash Trail in Folsom is not only a symbol of California history but now a state-wide attraction. Thanks to city of Folsom, the Folsom Chamber and the support of many local Folsom residents, the project is now closer to being complete. The Johnny Cash Trail will eventually connect to the trail along Lake Natoma, and will have other branches going to the Folsom Prison and elsewhere on the prison grounds.

The trail; a 2.5-mile line between Folsom Lake and downtown Folsom district, is now one of the most iconic symbols in the Greater Sacramento area.

This has been a project that’s been in the works since October 2010 in which Folsom has now completed, allowing local pedestrians and bicyclists the chance to walk the line.
