The guy was a jerk. We were driving the right way down a one-way parking lane outside Trader Joe's in Modesto Saturday when he turned the wrong way and stopped within three feet of my front bumper.

Manteca Golf Course green fees may go up in order to bring in more green. It's been five years since a rate increase was put in place. The proposal before the City Council Tuesday during their 7 p.m. meeting at the Civic Center isn't to raise rates across the board.

It is the ugliest stretch of separated bike path in Manteca. Stretching from South Main Street to Industrial Park Drive, the Moffat Boulevard segment of the 3.4-mile decade-old Tidewater Bike Path is devoid of greenery – save a storm retention basin/park created several years ago by the city. Over the years, suggestions have been made to spend upwards of $700,000 to landscape the entire stretch including landscaping and a pair of entrance plazas. Now municipal ...

The Mad Hatter has nothing on the California Legislature these days. Sacramento - The Craziest Place on Earth – makes Mr. Toad's Tea Party look like a meeting of the Mensa Society.

If that is supposed to raise your ire and side ...
Two acres of paradise await buyers on Northland Road just north of Manteca.

That mobile ...
There is no law governing what you can and cannot do to the American flag. No law exists against burning the flag either in protest or just because one wants to do so. It is extremely debatable whether one really would want any law on the books tightly regulating how the flags displayed or used as criminalizing how the symbol of the nation is treated arguable would erode basic freedoms. But given that, it is ...
