RIPON - Elementary school teachers definitely have heart – especially when they see a need. It's amazing how many adults I have interviewed who clearly remember their kindergarten through second grade teachers when they were youngsters in the primary grades.
"They had no money. They all traded in their clunkers and bought new wheels and now they got their cars repossessed. Some of them just walked around and got fatter while others socialized or played with vendor's items. What else are they going to do? No money here or anyplace else in the valley. Economy is completely shot along 99 from Marysville to the Grapevine. Economically disadvantaged area and people just go through the motions. Tire-kickers, teenagers pushing strollers, overweight welfare moochers.... they're all there."
The San Joaquin County Grand Jury is alarmed that Manteca Unified School District Superintendent Jason Messer allowed a felon to be hired to mentor Weston Ranch High students without going through a background check.
What is the moral or legal dilemma with the Manteca City Council spending $115,000 to install a commercial kitchen in the Moffat Boulevard Community Center that they are leasing long-term to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6311?
