For the fifth year Marine Corps veteran and Retired U.S. Navy Captain Chuck Roots is hosting a special birthday breakfast to honor the founding of the U.S. Marine Corps at Spring Creek Golf and Country Club in Ripon on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 8 a.m.
Ripon police officers did what they set out to do Friday night waiting on tables at the Barnwood Restaurant in their effort to raise funds for the police memorial now under construction by netting $825.
A dynamic "Hooah!" literally rocked the walls of the Ripon Community Center by gathered battalion troops – past and present – of the Ripon High JROTC, leaving little doubt how they felt about their retiring Lt.Col. Patrick Dunn.
