It's been quite a while since I set foot in the annual Manteca Street Fair downtown. Come to think of it, I think that was the Pumpkin Fair that I attended. I remember that because that's the year I went and took pictures of the Cow-munity mural in the parking lot of the then-Kentucky Fried Chicken, now the Athens Burgers. One of the pictures I took that day appears in the Best of Photography Annual 2009 of Photographer's Forum Magazine.

Youth & Teen Center park project in Lathrop is step in right direction

A while back, I wrote a column about downtowns. Specifically, what I had in mind was the city of Lathrop and where its downtown is or should be in light of all the developments taking place west of Interstate 5, namely: Mossdale Village, Central Lathrop Specific Plan's Richland Master-planned Communities, and the gargantuan River Islands development west of the San Joaquin River.
