September 2022 Digital Edition

Blasting Off Toward the Future of Aerospace

September is when we come back to life, back to reality and back to school. One exciting and innovative thing that’s back in business in the Capital Region is the aerospace industry. But don’t call it a comeback, because the industry never completely left after flourishing in the 20th century. In September’s cover story, contributing writer Graham Womack reports that although the Sacramento region isn’t the aerospace hub it once was, local companies are still doing cool things to keep the USA in space.

Here’s what else you can expect in the pixels and pages of our digital issue:

Affordable housing is in reach, or at least can be, with the right combination of ingenuity, teamwork and persistence. We look to six cities for lessons on getting it built.

Robots have officially entered the operating room, improving workflow and enabling doctors and patients to benefit from the real-time, on-site processing of information. Also in health news — open enrollment is around the corner. Editor Judy Farah rounds up key considerations for choosing the right health plan.

With back-to-school on the brain, we’re shining a light on the Sacramento sports programs investing in the community to impact and educate local youth. Sports have the power to change lives and can build pathways to STEM careers. Find out how Sacramento Republic FC and the Sacramento Kings are organizing to offer youth healing and life skills.

As is always the case in our region, many new developments are coming to life just as other institutions are closing up shop. After facing many pandemic-related challenges, Hacker Lab recently called it quits on its decade-long concept. But forging ahead with her startup spirit, CEO Gina Alatorre is turning it into something else. In a Comstock’s exclusive, Ed Fletcher interviews Alatorre about what went wrong and how she’s moving forward.

You’ll also find a profile on Randall Selland, chef of Sacramento’s first Michelin-starred restaurant; tips for becoming the manager people want to work for; the latest from Evil HR Lady (now illustrated by a local artist); a Taste story on inflation at local farmers markets; Off the Beaten Track; Startup of the Month and more.

In the September issue, Comstock’s presents a special section in partnership with Sacramento Region Business Association exploring the organization’s extensive achievements and its impressive members. Also in September, we’re featuring a special section on Education examining key facets of our educational community and what challenges and opportunities are shaping the narrative for our future success.

We hope you enjoy digitally flipping through these pages as you enjoy these last days of summer.
