With seemingly no options, he turned to man's best ...

Sean Sangalang walked into Culver City last weekend with a chip on his shoulder. Or, more appropriately, his rippled, fibrous traps. It had been three years since he last competed in a bodybuilding competition in the Los Angeles alcove, and everything that happened on that day went badly. It was his worst finish since he started lifting competitively seven years ago, and the experience brought the strained relationship with his then-coach to a head. So ...

Your federal tax dollars funneled through the City of Manteca are paying Charlie Halyer $178.08 an hour and his fellow worker $144.88 an hour. The two are resident engineers.
