ESCALON — Dennis Borba and his Escalon-based bullfighting school was spotlighted on the cover of Saturday’s “Off Duty” section of the Wall Street Journal.

The story profiles Borba who runs a ranch with 800 head of cattle and horses near Escalon as well as his bullfighting school. Borba is one of the few active matadors in this country while his school is among a very small number outside of Spain.

The story tells of the writer’s three-day stay to learn bullfighting basics. The cost of the three-day course is $300. The Journal writer, Mattathias Schwartz, even gave a mention to Shorty’s Pub & Grill in Escalon as a local diversion for “their excellent steaks and homemade potato chips.”
