The month of June is set aside as a celebration of all things dairy. In California it also is a celebration of Real California Milk and the hardworking dairy families who bring this nutritious food to the table.
California milk and dairy foods are high-quality, economical food sources that come in an endless array of flavors and formats to satisfy every palate. We want high quality and we want value; we want healthy options and we want to indulge; we want choice and we want to know where our food comes from. Dairy delivers in all of these areas.

The monthly meetings of the Valley Home Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) resume tonight with a meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Harold Pope School Library. A reminder that these MAC meetings are important to those interested in Valley Home happenings as representatives from various county agencies will make a report on the activities in their department - Sheriff, Animal Services, Public Works, etc. In addition, representatives from the Oakdale Rural Fire Protection District, California Highway Patrol and the Valley Home Community Center will also make presentations. An interested resident of Valley Home will not want to miss this meeting.
Several members from Oakdale's Sierra and River Oaks 4-H clubs competed in Davis recently at the State Field Day for the Fashion Revue and Presentation Day. Stanislaus County had five participants in the Fashion Revue, three representing Sierra 4-H and two representing River Oaks 4-H. Each of them won awards at the county and regional contests in order to advance to the state level.
When the going gets tough, the tough get … new sign ordinances that will enable the city to rake in some much-needed dough from minor traffic infractions.
Oakdale City Council members approved a code text amendment to the Oakdale Municipal Code at the last council meeting, Monday, June 7, that is modeled after the successful implementation of similar amendments in Newman and Riverbank.
Gary Geno Giovannoni and Dorothy Ann (Staudenmaier) Giovannoni will celebrate 50 years of marriage on June 12, 2010.
The couple first met at the Oakdale swimming pool, as children. They later met again and began dating while students at Oakdale High School and were married June 12, 1960 at St. John's Church in Valley Home. They have spent their entire married life in Oakdale.
Both the South San Joaquin and the Oakdale Irrigation Districts are in a fight for their lives against the federal government's misguided attempts at helping salmon and steelhead in the South Delta. Our two agencies have filed suit to stop the same government decision that shut the pumps down on the westside of the Central Valley and destroyed much of its agriculture and economy last year. That same decision (known as the Biological Opinion), if not changed, will do the same here on the Stanislaus River; significantly impacting our local communities.
The feds and their state counterparts are focused ...
