There is a solution to Manteca's Library needs and it might be staring city leaders in the face.
Some people abide by the 10-second rule. Personally, mine is more like 30 seconds. I guess it comes from being out in the middle of nowhere on long bicycle rides and having to eat only what I bring with me. I have no problem with picking most food I drop up off the floor – or from the ground – and eating it. I don't exactly have a phobia about dirt and germs. Having said ...
For the first time in quite a while, I'm not running around to take my son, Josh, to baseball.
Pontiac was the General Motors car line growing up. Your parents drove a Chevrolet. The nice elderly couple down the street drove a Buick. Middle-age folks who were moving up were behind the wheel of an Oldsmobile. And those who were well-to-do – relatively speaking – owned Cadillacs. It was the Pontiac line, though, that beckoned the young and young at heart. It was pure muscle under the hood even in the sedans. They even ...
It's an opportunity of a lifetime. Manteca has the backbone of a solution in place that could help keep down future municipal costs to maintain parks and civic landscaping as well as large expanses of school grass plus reduce consumption of precious drinking water.
It is ironic that the San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission is going back to Washington, D.C., to lobby the federal government to secure $20 million toward $150 million in order to buy the Union Pacific tracks and right-of-way over the Altamont Pass.
It wasn't a posh party by any means and certainly not by AIG standards. It was a catered dinner at the MRPS Hall costing around $9,000.
Burger King is killing you. It used to be that you'd have to at least buy a charbroiled burger and consume it before you had to start worrying about your health. In the good old days all you had to fret about was trans fats and whether they cooked the meat enough to stay healthy. Now the San Joaquin Valley Air Quality Control District is saying second-hand charbroiling can kill you. The people who made ...
Why should stray or unwanted dogs in Manteca have a shorter lifespan because elected-officials in Lathrop like to chow down on taxpayer financed shrimp cocktail before the start of their council meetings?
Coach Ben Parks was a guest at last Saturday's Manteca Sports Heroes Hall of Distinction event held in the Big League Dream sports complex.
Are you a daredevil? Do near misses excite you? Is it your firm belief the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to make left turns at will across a busy commercial block with 15 driveways to a number of high traffic attractions? In that case, you want to make sure the pending repaving of East Yosemite Avenue between Commerce Drive and Cottage Avenue goes forward in the coming year without the City Council directing staff to ...
The government giveth and the government taketh more away. Keep that in mind before you start celebrating the pittance the federal government is sending your way to "stimulate" the economy. Single taxpayers in 2009 are having their federal income tax liability chopped $400 while couples will get an $800 savings. It figures out to $7.69 a week for singles and $15.38 a week for couples. Now, you might be thinking every little bit helps, right? ...
Several generations of television viewers are familiar with the previous work of Keith Thibodeaux.
An original Rembrandt on display at City Hall in Lathrop? That could very well be the case under the right conditions. Lathrop entrepreneur and one-time council and school board candidate J. "Chaka" Santos alluded to one of those conditions at the last council meeting. "I have access to some art but don't know about the kind of security" that would be available for such a valuable piece if it went on display at City Hall, ...
Wall Street wants absolution for their financial transgressions. Detroit believes they're too big for repentance. Those who made personal financial decisions whether it was buying a home or going on a big toy spending spree while driven by at least several of the Seven Deadly Sins want monetary forgiveness.
Get ready for the invasion of the Barneys.
The annual network list of canceled primetime shows cannot be pleasing to the progressives who measure shows based on their cultural and political usefulness.
