With our 2014 Stanislaus County Fair behind us and our State Fair in full swing we look at the commitment our FFA and 4-H families have. Much like our youth sports teams the commitment is huge and it is usually a total family commitment!

Then it's ownership. Another remarkable part of both FFA and 4-H is the dedication of great leaders and teachers! These teachers and leaders can ...

Fishing Report

Life jackets are one of the most valuable pieces of equipment on a boat. A lot of owners spend huge amounts of money on radio systems, wakeboard towers, downriggers, power poles, and other luxury items on their boats. When it comes to life jackets though, a lot of times they couldn't tell you what sizes they have and some of them even keep them stowed away under a seat compartment somewhere. In the past 10 years or more suspender type life jackets have become popular amongst boaters. Most them are designed to automatically inflate once submerged in water. The ...

Breaking The Cycle

DEAR DIDI: We have a six-month-old male pit that we rescued from the shelter about three months ago. He is such a wonderful and sweet dog that we love to death. We have one issue though.

He doesn't do this with me but also does it with our neighbor when he visits. We can't figure out where the problem is. My husband gets very angry and thinks the dog is growing up ...
