It has been more than 80 years of farming that includes an annual pumpkin crop in Ripon with pumpkins of every description that can be seen ripening in the fields every October with the approach of Halloween.
A possible burglary in progress in a neighborhood near Ripon's Weston Elementary School in the southwest section of the city Thursday saw officers quickly alert staff members to move the children to another play area for their safety.
A single line of police officers in uniform on bicycles drew the attention of Ripon motorists who reacted with honks and waves as the trio followed their instructor from Southern California down Main Street into the city's central business section.
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.
Have you felt that everything you ever worked for could potentially be taken from you at the last possible minute? Whether you have, it is an experience everyone can and will have at some point in their lives.
