Valley Home News for July 22, 2009

The temperature this last week in our community has been warm, especially the first part of the week up to news submission time. The report given to us was at least six days over 100 degrees. We know that this is the San Joaquin Valley and this is July and put those two together and what you get is hot weather but we have been spoiled a bit in early July with a small reduction in the heat. We can wish for it to return but be prepared no matter what direction it goes.

It was a great weekend for summer soccer with temperatures hitting 104 on Saturday afternoon. To add to the degree of difficulty, FC played Saturday with 12 players and 11 Sunday morning due to summer vacation schedules.
The competitive squad played to a two-win, two-loss weekend. The barn burned on Saturday with Izzy Arellano getting the hat trick with three goals and one for good measure from Sara Siemsen. The shut out was nearly preserved ...

"A committee was formed and in February of this year, Director ...

Helping Kids Take Flight

Dear Editor,
I would like to thank the EAA Young Eagles for their free flight day on a recent Saturday. My son, and several of his Cub Scout buddies, were warmly welcomed and taken on flights by caring aviators at the Oakdale airport.
I am very appreciative to this group for their time and expense. They answered lots of questions and even fed us! So when the next free flight day comes, please take the time to go and check it out.

Don’t Cover Handicapped Spaces

Dear Editor,
The longer I live in Oakdale the more disappointed I get. I see the local merchants don't want my business because I keep seeing the disabled parking spaces painted over. I see where the outside businesses are keeping the disabled spaces, but the smaller local businesses are painting them over and not replacing them (last strip mall to do this that I used to visit is on the corner of Oak and 108). Funny but there is also a kidney dialysis center there that would cater to the disabled, and they kept their two spaces, but two ...
