RIPON - A girl's dream of attending her senior prom in a beautiful evening gown is a real possibility for more than 1,400 soon-to-be high school graduates this year that might otherwise have to stay home on their special night.
Mark Cacioppo, spokesman for PHI Air Medical, the largest emergency medical air transport service in the country, told Manteca Rotarians Thursday how they could reserve low cost helicopter use for their families.
South San Joaquin Irrigation District incurred roughly $5,000 in legal expenses due to PG&E's threat to take them to court over a natural gas pipeline that the utility essentially wanted to place within the SSJID right-of-way on PG&E's own terms.
Manteca firefighters found evidence of accelerant pours in a small building in the 200 block of West North Street following a 3:30 a.m. blaze that destroyed much of the interior of the building that once served as a Seventh Day Adventist church school in the 1940s.
Hours after the San Joaquin County Superior Court issued an injunction that temporarily closed the new marijuana dispensary in downtown Manteca, the Stockton City Council closed the doors Tuesday night on their similar facility on Acacia Avenue.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society has helped untold number of needy families and individuals in Manteca and surroundings for decades. Young men studying for the priesthood have been able to continue pursuing their religious vocation, thanks in part to the assistance provided by the Bishop's Seminarian Fund of the Diocese of Stockton. And a number of area youth have been able to play in Little League with the help of generous donations from organizations whose mission is to step up when there's a need.
