I recently stumbled on some old floppy disks (are there any other kind?) that have some of my old columns going back up to 14 years. Some stand the test of time, others not so much. This one was from 1993.
When I was in the Manteca Bulletin office the other day discussing the content of this column, the boy popped up with how I should not write it. That is exactly why I am going to write it – for his generation and those too young to remember circa 1964.
I really should have rethought the decision to spend so much money on clothes when I was at my heaviest because I'm suddenly finding that most of the items in my wardrobe are either extremely baggy, or no longer usable in any real capacity.
Buying the 57,000-square-foot building that once housed Kodak's Qualex film processing division on Industrial Park Drive to serve as a new home for the Manteca Police Department was anything but a snap decision by the City of Manteca in 2006.
