RIPON - The Barnwood Restaurant Chef John Mangelos is going on stage Thursday to compete in the "Culinary Challenge" before some 750 guests in the Modesto Centre Plaza to benefit the Doctors Medical Center Alzheimer's Foundation.
The Manteca Noon Kiwanis is looking for extra hands to help "stuff" approximately 8,000 to 10,000 eggs that will be used in the Saturday, April 3, annual Easter Egg Hunt that the club has been sponsoring every year for nearly three decades.
Manteca is spending $48,700 to find out if there are better ways to do more with less when it comes to everything the streets and water service to garbage collection, vehicle maintenance, and sewer service.
Poag & McEwen promised that The Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley - when completed - would have a "warm downtown feeling" where people would be encouraged to stroll leisurely between stores, enjoy water features and sit beneath shade trees.
Bob Piccinini - the Manteca High graduate who parlayed his family's first grocery store they opened in Manteca into a chain of 243 stores throughout Northern California and Northern Nevada - passed away Tuesday. He was 73.
