My, but we've become a grouchy lot, haven't we? Maybe it's climate change, or the economy; who knows? It could be the alignment of the stars for all I know, but we've got our cranky pants hitched on and we're wearing 'em a little too snug around our sensitive parts.

North Main Street in Manteca is a long way from Fifth Avenue in New York City. One can only imagine the thoughts that a classy lady who once modeled and taught piano in Manhattan must have thought when she rolled into town decades ago and passed what then passed as local culture – a topless bar.
Since Manteca's city council passed an ordinance in October 2008 requiring all pit bulls and pit bull mixed breeds be spayed or neutered, illegal pit bulls have been a constant worry for animal control workers, especially Linda Sell.

Manteca Unified School District Superintendent Jason Messer and the Board of Education have been investing time and money in pushing the slogan, Proud to be MUSD, which is aimed at focusing on all things positive about the district - from students' accomplishments and teachers' innovative instructional approaches, to a slew of progressive-thinking educational programs such as the $30 million Going Digital and the be.tech vocational charter school that has shown phenomenal growth in the mere three years it has been open.
All four of Manteca's City Council members live in neighborhoods built in the last 15 years. Two reside in the Woodward Park neighborhood, one along the Airport Way corridor and the other in Union Ranch. All three neighborhoods are in the outer ring of the city.
