SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento County is bringing in more rangers to patrol the American River Parkway.

The Sacramento County supervisors this week approved adding four more rangers to the Sacramento County Parks Department, so there will now be 20 rangers patrolling the American River Parkway.

That's good news for those who use and live near the parkway.  Some of the problems they see on a regular basis include illegal camping -- mostly by the homeless -- and people drinking in excess and behaving badly on the river.
