It is nice to know that the Bay Delta Conservation Plan has taken into account potential sea level increases in designing the Twin Tunnels to "avoid water supply disruptions and protect water quality."
Go south along Union Road, Tinnin Road, and Airport Way just a little south of Woodward Avenue where narrow country roads carry names such as Fig, Sedan, Nile and others crisscross the south-north roads.
Her name is synonymous with the sport of basketball in the Family City, yet Molly DeRoos is having a hard time finding a sanctioned game.
Tax them for they have sinned.
She lives practically next to a "drug house" in a Manteca neighborhood that many of the property owners know about it.
Boots - and therefore shoes - are made for walking.
I went to pay for $10 worth of merchandise with my debit card.
As books go, the history of good is a slim volume.
I was 500 feet above the Pacific Ocean about midway between Molokai and Maui. And I wasn't having a good time.
I love a parade. I love marching.

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
The good old days.
I was almost embarrassed.

uPG&E did not pay any taxes between 2008 and 2010 despite scoring $4.1 billion in profits. During that same time they received $1 billion in tax rebates. It was all thanks to a $79 million lobbying effort of politicians by the firm that last summer spent $10 million on a "we lost our way" advertising campaign to improve their public image.
Is this a case of conflict of interest?
