From page A2 | January 11, 2014 |

A pink Cadillac, an employee of the month, cheerleaders going to Hawaii and plenty of crab feeds top this week’s roundup of good news around the region.

Fairfield woman honored

After more than 35 years with Mary Kay, Independent Executive Senior Sales Director Nia Putnam of Fairfield recently earned her 19th free car, the prestigious pink Cadillac.

A symbol of success within the Mary Kay community, independent sales force members earn the use of a pink Cadillac by meeting and exceeding goals set within their individual businesses, according to a news release from the company.

Putnam, who’s been selling Mary Kay since 1976, picked up the Cadillac SRX Tuesday in Vallejo.

“(It) makes me feel proud and excited to lead such a great group of women,” Putnam said in the release. “This is a trophy on wheels and it shows how Mary Kay acknowledges a job well and rewards her leaders, everyone can earn a Pink Cadillac. All you have to do is work.”

County honors Blasingame

Solano County named Debbie Blasingame as its “employee of the month” for January.

Blasingame started working for the county Tax Collector’s office in August 1989. She is an accounting clerk and is described by the county as an expert in all areas of tax billing and collecting.

“Ms. Blasingame is an inspiration to her colleagues and a key mentor for employees new to the department,” a county report said.

The county Board of Supervisors honored Blasingame on Tuesday.

Vanden cheerleaders at Pro Bowl

The Vanden High School football cheerleading squad will soon head out to appear in the halftime show of the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl on Jan. 26 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The squad attended the UCA Cheer Camp at Sacramento State University last summer, where they came away with two top awards, according to Chantony Marshall. They will depart Jan. 23 to fly to Hawaii.

Nice job to the Vanden cheerleaders!
