This week, SN&R presents our annual Summer Guide, with a focus on how to have fun and take advantage of all the Sacramento region has to offer while still being eco-friendly and sustainable.

In News, Scott Thomas Anderson writes about Sacramento County's renewed effort to deal with the illegal trafficking and public health consequences of meth. Graham Womack reports on an unusual dispute between the Placer County district attorney and Rocklin police over video of an officer-involved altercation.

In Stage, we have a review of The Forever Question and a preview of the New Comedies Festival, both at B Street Theatre.

In her weekly Garden column, Debbie Arrington checks in with the local carnivorous plants show, which has moved to Father's Day weekend.

In Voices, an activist argues that uniformed police have no place in gay pride events and a UC Davis graduating senior explains why she gave up rock climbing. I write about why an Oakland youth center is bankrolling a ballot measure in Sacramento.
