They were parked close together, one behind the other, on the west side of Manthey Road just a few feet to the south of the Lathrop Road intersection.

Would you entrust the folks who can't balance a budget, won't make the hard decisions to cut expenses by whittling down bloated bureaucracies, and steal from cities and counties to cover up their own fiscal irresponsibility to take over your health insurance?
The poor economy is finally catching up to golf courses and California is definitely one of the hardest hit states with many closures. Locally we have seen several public golf courses close their doors with others up for serious consideration.
