Scads of empty Gatorade bottles littered the practice football at Zuckerman Field.
When the Democrats put out their health care proposals, they made sure not to forget their friends at ACORN, the organization involved in voter fraud throughout America.
Just how did we let drugs get such a destructive hold on our communities?
Our priorities should be kids, not hoarding cash. For many months, we have heard from Manteca Unified District Superintendent Jason Messer that our district is a business.
A punk – and there is no other way to describe whoever did it – spray painted "SUR" on my garage door almost two weeks ago.
The Rev. Mark Rindels no longer shepherds the congregation at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church in Manteca where he was pastor for 17 years.
PG&E doesn't think South San Joaquin Irrigation District is playing fair.
California as a civilized state is a fluke.
It is being billed as a pitch to get kids to work hard and stay in school. Some say it is Orwellian. Others claim it is cult worship. And then there are those that contend it is political grandstanding on the taxpayer's dime.
PG&E – whether you like the San Francisco-based utility or not – has no one else to blame for South San Joaquin Irrigation District moving toward entering the retail power business but PG&E itself.
People who play golf pretty much know there are three different types of golf courses. However, those of you who don't play golf might be under the impression that all golf courses are alike. In actuality, the three categories of golf courses are so different as night and day.

Much ado is being made of the United States infant mortality rate in the crisis du jour debate involving health care.
In the past, I received $200 for classroom supplies. Not a month, not a semester but for the YEAR. I will receive $25 for the year. And, you might not realize this, but in the past, the school board gave the superintendent a $300 supply allowance. Not per year, per MONTH. To his credit, Superintendent Jason Messer turned this perk down. That's not the point.

It looks like rain is coming.
I love junk food! I'm not talking a casual fondness for a fistful of Doritos or a mouthful of powered donuts. I'm talking full blown, passionate love, for deep fried chicken, cheeseburgers and French fries, supreme pizzas with extra thick crust and a pound of shredded cheese scattered over chunks of sausage and pepperoni. Washed down by a mug of ice cold soda, followed by a jumbo scoop of vanilla ice cream with hot fudge drizzled on top. Do you get the picture? I love junk food!
