Good morning, Sacramento! Let's get this Sunday started off right. Here's everything going on today in Sacramento.
First, today's weather:
Mostly sunny. High: 62 Low: 36.
Here are the top five stories today in Sacramento:

A U.S. Air Force veteran who served during Vietnam was killed recently when the ceiling of his Citrus Heights apartment caved in on him. Now, his daughter, Danielle Fiddy, wants apartment management held accountable, so she is bringing a suit against the complex. Fiddy said her father had been vocal about a leak in the ceiling prior to its collapse. Fiddy said she wants to bring awareness so it does not happen to anyone else. "If nothing else comes of this, if I save somebody else's life from this ... that'll be gratitude enough for me," Fiddy said. (FOX40)
Hundreds of records containing personal information about Sacramento County residents were exposed in a phishing attack last year, the county said. 2,096 protected health information and 816 personal identifiable records were exposed during a cyber attack on June 22, 2021.

The city of Sacramento purchased over 100 acres of land from the federal government to help house people experiencing homelessness. Following a bidding process that cost the city $12.3 million from the U.S. Department of Labor, city officials are hoping the community can get involved in developing the 102-acre property. At least 25% of the property will be used for affordable housing. Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the goal is to have a cleaner and safer city while also helping people navigate their way out of homelessness. (KCRA3)
Dave Brubeck grew up on a ranch outside of Ione. "To me, what's really interesting as an artist is that his isolation by being 'Northern California cowboy kid,' compared to growing up in Manhattan where bebop was running rampant, you know, allowed him to have his own style development," Chris Brubeck, Dave's son, said. Even though Dave died in 2012, he's still giving back to the communities where he grew up. As part of the centennial celebration of Dave Brubeck's birth, which technically would have been last year, but a pandemic pass is warranted - the Brubeck Brothers are playing the Sacramento Crest Theatre on Feb. 2. Proceeds from that show will go to fund K-12 arts programs in Sacramento schools. (KCRA3)
