LATHROP – Once upon a time, there was a Lathrop Corner Café. Patricia Terry Richichi remembers it well, and so does Frank Mendes. Longtime Lathrop residents Bennie and Joyce Gatto also have a lot of memories of the building complex that housed a restaurant, a store, and a bar that was also a dance hall at least once a week.
LATHROP – The valley's sizzling summer temperature was not the only thing heating up the city in July of 2010. The sweltering weather had some serious competition coming from the election campaigns on all government levels – and Lathrop was no exception.
Manteca could - in 2011 - become ground zero for construction jobs thanks to an aggressive effort by the city to move three projects forward in a bid to position the city to catch the first wave of the economic rebound when it occurs.
The Manteca Parks and Recreation Department is again offering a Portuguese class geared for those of Portuguese descent who want to learn more about their history, or just anyone interested in knowing more about the culture other than festas and bullfights.
