VALLEY HOME NEWS for June 9, 2009

Last week a copy of an email was received from Melinda Koppinger, the departing editor of the Valley Home 4-H Bug asking members running for office in the upcoming fall 4-H club to submit letters telling what office they are seeking and why. This week I would like to share with Valley Home News column readers these letters.

River Safety Cautioned

The temperatures are climbing quickly into the 'is it summer already?' zone and Oakdale is lucky to have the cool, crisp waters of the Stanislaus River winding its way through the zip code. However, officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are quick to remind people that the river is running swift from high country snow run-off and cold with brisk temperatures between 55 and 60 degrees.

Cooler than normal spring weather brought late season snow to the mountains, delaying the annual melting by about three weeks, according to reports by the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

Crews Did Superb Work

Dear Editor,

While going through Oakdale awhile back, we drove by a cemetery close to some railroad tracks. We noticed all these people with green vests working there. When we returned from Black Oak on that same route we just have to say those workers did a wonderful job on that cemetery.

Valley Home News

There is action at the Valley Home Community Center pavilion site, things are happening. Last week's activity was the building of the concrete forms for the floor of the pavilion and the pouring of the concrete. There was a large group of concrete workers who demonstrated their skill and by early afternoon there lay before us a beautiful concrete floor that had a smooth as glass rim border and a center section that gave the appearance of etched rockwork. A sidewalk was also laid from the edge of the pavilion across the soon to be grass covered dirt to ...

Holiday Weekend Busy But Safe

The Memorial Day holiday weekend traffic, both Friday and Monday, backed up Yosemite Avenue and clogged up F Street but in spite of heavy traffic flow and increased visitors through the city, law enforcement reported a relatively quiet holiday with the only spike being in DUI arrests due to the special grant-funded traffic enforcement.

"The calls were really run-of-the-mill," Lt. Lester Jenkins of the Oakdale Police Department said. "We had very heavy traffic throughout the weekend but not a lot of accidents."
