Name the fifth largest river on the Western Hemisphere's West Coast. Here's a hint: It's located where water power brokers are pushing a $14 billion twin tunnel plan that has the potential to destroy the Delta and keep a large swath of the richest agricultural region in the world fallow. The "river" is all of the water that flows out of wastewater treatment plants in Southern California and is dumped into the Pacific Ocean. It's ...

Back in the 1990s, a Ford executive was showing off a new line of robots that assemble vehicles to a United Auto Workers representative.
Lead and asbestos have been banned by government decree from being used in homes. Lead poisoning from peeling paint flakes as well as respiratory related diseases from asbestos fibers from insulation are well documented health concerns.

Airport Way hurries past farm fields slowly giving way to urbanization in the southern part of Manteca.
There are tattle-tail signs in many cases. The house may have more traffic than a 7-Eleven at all hours of the day and night. Those that come and go tend to be for short stays.

There's a business down the street from your home. They stack trash in the front. They let the weeds grow a foot high. They allow vehicles to park the wrong way as well as block the sidewalk. They are extremely noisy at midnight. And it is like Grand Central station around the clock. It is a situation you wouldn't tolerate. Nor would you cut city officials any slack. You'd either want the business cleaned up ...

There was a time not too long ago when gas sold for 45 cents a gallon. A gas jockey always filled your tank, washed your windshields, checked the oil and cheerfully gave you either a free glass or Blue Chip stamps each time you bought eight or more gallons. And perhaps even better, you were not afraid to venture into a service station restroom. Oil companies spent millions not only urging you to "trust the ...

Get ready for the invasion of the Barneys.
