Pain is relative. In my case, it is a first cousin. It is why I'm fortunate to have a high tolerance of relatives given how I have a set of bunions that scare young children, hammer toes, a shoulder I cracked at 45 mph in a downhill bicycle crash, a knee that I tried real hard to shatter in the same mishap, and a mild case of scoliosis. I can take a spill, bloody up ...

There is a private firm recycling e-waste Oct. 18-19 in the parking lot near Kohl's. I know this because the firm's representatives very nicely have placed signs in both the city and state public right-of-ways. One is in the municipally owned and maintained landscaping at Powers and Yosemite Avenue where the sign covers about a third of the area. The other is on Caltrans territory as you access Highway 99 from Yosemite Avenue. It is ...

There he was. Some Steve Jobs wannabe wearing his little watch computer as he surfed the Internet while proclaiming to a KRON-TV reporter that Google Glasses were so yesterday. I didn't catch the name of the conference KRON was covering. It was some technology startup gathering du jour in San Francisco. The guy was boldly predicting everyone would be wearing wrist computers within a year. "These make so much sense," he said. "It helps save ...

We do not have a federal government shutdown. It isn't even a partial shutdown. What we have is a zombie government. True, "essential" services are still humming along and the government is functioning. Your income is being taxed. Warren Buffet is still taking advantage of big fat tax credits his firms lobbied to obtain. And the federal debt is still rising. Uncle Sam is simply in a catatonic state. Just like a zombie he's still ...
At the stroke of midnight Saturday the Stanislaus River Parks are closing. Ranger Norm Winchester with the Army Corps of Engineers will be among personnel locking gates and switching off timers that would have reopened the locks six hours later at nine developed parks from Knights Ferry to the confluence of the Stanislaus and San Joaquin rivers west of Ripon and south of Manteca. It means an end to rafting for the duration. There are ...
The big muddy is back. Just ask the Spooner family. Thanks to wind-whipped dirt just more than a half mile away from City of Manteca property they are being forced to daily clean their swimming pool that they refer to as the sand lagoon, close all windows and enjoy almost daily mini-dust storms. As a result their PG&E bill is climbing as they try to live among the dust drifting in from city land on ...

That didn't stop him from driving off. Police caught up with him near Harlan Road.
