Driving the kids to school when they were attending Nile Garden Elementary School, I used to make a pit stop at the donut shop in the small neighborhood shopping center on Union Road at West Yosemite Avenue. The kids opted for the chocolate-topped bars or the round ones. I usually had a half-dozen of the small rounded bite sizes with a small cup of decaf coffee.
PG&E's brass will do whatever it takes to protect their multi-million dollar compensation packages whether it is breaking laws, distorting the truth, or leading an effort to amend the California Constitution to shore up their monopoly.
PG&E has finally conceded that the smart meters they are installing aren't as infallible as they have been contending.
The lead story in Sunday's Manteca Bulletin was a bit of a surprise for Samuel Anderson. It was about the South San Joaquin Republicans candidates' forum tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Chez Shari restaurant on the second floor of the Manteca Golf Course at 305 North Union Road. It was a surprise because Anderson - who is a Republican - has been a declared candidate for mayor for as long as Mayor Willie Weatherford and ...
PG&E's corporate brass are once again doing what they do best which is not playing by the rules.
Safe and Sane Fireworks is becoming an explosive issue in Lathrop that is polarizing some residents and a member of the City Council, not to mention a retired fire chief.
Three cheers for Arizona. No, it Is not for the infamous illegal immigration law that gives local police in Arizona the responsibility to verify immigration status if there is a "reasonable suspicion" that the person they have stopped for an infraction is in this country illegally.

I had a good laugh when I read the press release from the Manteca Convention & Visitors Bureau about the torch run opening the 2010 Manteca Senior Games next Saturday.
The next time you see Kirk Dall, Eric Woh le, Rick Arucan, Fred Milner, Steve Keegan, Charlotte Stafford, JoAnne Jamerson, Bruce Bentz, Christina Crutchfield, Maryann Morrison and Kevin Wentworth among others, you might want to tell them thank you.
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't the only actor in Sacramento. There are actually 120 of them "acting" as leaders of California in both houses of the legislature. And judging by what is about to come down in San Joaquin County - as well as the 57 other counties - the time has come to end reruns this November and look for virtually anyone else. Based on the mess they've managed to get California in, it would be ...
There is little doubt that State Sen. Dean Florez, D-Shafter, means well. He is the politician that authored a bill now making its way through the California Legislature to establish student fee caps starting in 2010-11 and cap increases at 5 percent in future years at the University of California, California State University, and California Community Colleges. The proposed law would also assure students that their fees would not rise during their learning career. The ...
Back in 1994 during a terse exchange over the need for a new Manteca Library, one opponent stood up in the council chambers and declared it was a moot point since public libraries would be on the way out by the year 2000.
Let me tell you how it will be; There's one for you, nineteen for me. 'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman. Should five per cent appear too small, Be thankful I don't take it all. 'Cause I'm the taxman, Yeah, I'm the taxman. (if you drive a car, car;) - I'll tax the street; (if you try to sit, sit;) - I'll tax your seat; (if you get too cold, cold;) - I'll ...
Eminent domain, we are told by PG&E, is an evil thing but only if it is used against them.
The rains are less frequent. The mercury is inching up toward 70 degrees. And the gopher mounds are popping up more often than Meg Whitman for governor TV commercials.
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.
