Fire crackled through bamboo stands and threatened several residences in the 700 block of South Airport Way art about 11:30 a.m. Monday bringing firefighters from the City of Manteca and Lathrop-Manteca Fire to battle the blaze.
Struggling to retain possession of his gun from being pulled from its holster, a Manteca Police officer gained control with only one round being fired into a wall of the emergency room at Kaiser Hospital Saturday evening.
Seventy years ago, on June 15, 1941, although the Manteca Merchants have had their share of ups and downs this season, today they invaded the home diamond of the toughest team in their league and came out winners by a 4-3 score. The losing team was Solari's, who have been threatening to pull out of the league because of "lack of competition". Willard Reiger, Louie Bronzan and Martin Bronzan each had two hits for the Merchants and Jim Theiler scored two runs.
