RIPON - Ripon's Tony Mistlin has come a long way from the disciplinary wrath of teachers in a boys' prep school in England to becoming the owner of a Honda dealership and the community's No. 1 benefactor supporting its 120-acre sports park on River Road.
Bonus bucks – part of Manteca's development lexicon since 1998 – saved Manteca from having to face tough decisions to cover annual general fund budget shortfalls from 2002 through 2006 to the tune of $5,709,500.
Manteca's Police force will add a police officer, a community service officer, a booking officer and an administrative assistant under the proposed $33 million municipal general fund budget for the fiscal year starting July 1.
The American Veterans Traveling Tribute - including an 80% replica of the Vietnam Wall, World War II Tribute Collection, Korea Tribute Collection, 9/11 Tribute, Police & Fire Tribute Panels, and Fort Hood Tribute Panel - will be arriving in the Manteca on Wednesday, May 20.
A decade ago developers Mike Atherton and Bill Filios decided to honor the generations of Manteca residents that labored at Spreckels Sugar as well as the sugar plant itself that served as an economic mainstay for 75 years.
