Since 1918, June Bruce has experienced almost 94 years of Christmas celebrations. After moving from Oregon to Keyes when she was 3 years old, Bruce experienced a holistic approach to the holiday season. Her father was the Superintendent of the Swedish Baptist Church Sunday school, and her mother was the choir director in charge of the Christmas pageants. "We had to learn pieces and singing. I had a piece with three verses. I said the ...
Evelyn Prouty is no spring chicken. But you wouldn't dare call her a senior citizen even though she has finally retired and given up such pastimes as horseback riding, grave digging and holding tightly to the reins of the Manteca Historical Society.
To borrow a few lyrics from 'Jingle Bells,' Joan Nixon took a ride "on a one-horse open sleigh" one Christmas season.
It's not that tough to give a gift this Christmas that says "Manteca."

The museum gift shop at 600 West Yosemite Avenue offers everything from one-of-a-kind jewelry from years gone by and handmade items by Manteca craftsmen to books on local history. You can ...

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prolific documentary-maker Alex Gibney delivers a gripping account of the wins and losses of hard-charging idealism on the front lines of the information wars in "We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks."

SONORA - When dance teacher Michael Minetti first meets his elderly student Lily Harrison in her Florida-coast high rise, it seems pretty clear these two will barely make it past 'Hello,' let alone their first full lesson.
