The Oakdale Police Department, in conjunction with other Stanislaus County law enforcement agencies, worked together to conduct free child safety seat check events at St. Mary's Church at 1225 Olive St. in Oakdale.

Let The Public Comment

Dear Editor,
I, Bobby E. Goad, was denied to ask three questions by OID President Jack Alpers (Aug. 4, 2009 OID board meeting). Jack Alpers said he would throw me out, after I disagreed with him.

I did leave.
If a subject is to be spoken about and Jack Alpers squashes it by not allowing questions and statements by some individuals, the OID board will likely let things pass that would not pass if OID board members knew the whole story ...

A great big "Thank You!" from the Boyers to the Knights Ferry lawn ferries. Jim came home from the hospital and Diane and Jim were surprised to find their lawn had been mowed and things weed-eated and trimmed. Seems Martha Harding and helpers from the 50's Roadhouse went to work on the Boyer yard since Jim could not do it. It is nice to have such good friends!
