Valley Home News Week of July 23, 2014

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! With 4-Hers and FFA students the commitment is year round, and first involves learning about caring for the animals. Next comes hands on experience and attending judging events and project meetings. 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 ...

Free Fishing Day Is Saturday, July 5

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) invites all Californians to celebrate summer by fishing this Saturday.

Free Fishing Days are also a great opportunity for licensed anglers to introduce non-angling friends and children to fishing and the outdoors.

Valley Home News Week of July 16, 2014

It's fair time again! Many of us have special memories of attending the county fair in our youth. What great times were had at the fair! The brightly colored Ferris wheel was always my favorite as I was never brave enough for the faster rides. For others it was the tilt-a-whirl...spinning faster and faster until before you knew it, it was spinning you rather than you spinning it. It is wildly fun and for some they can't get enough of it. Whatever your ride of choice the county fair is always a fun time for all! Remember ...

Fishing Report

It seems like every year, as far back as I can remember, we've been in a drought. This one though is a little different. I've seen the water levels in some of our local lakes lower than I've ever seen them before. When I was a kid, this would be the prime time to scour the banks in search of fishing treasure. There are sure to be lures and other miscellaneous items that have been lost by anglers while fishing when the water levels were higher. If I only had a metal detector, who knows what can ...

Fishing Report

For several years now there's been a mandatory inspection for boats entering our local lakes for Quagga-Zebra Mussels. Most of us I'm sure think of the inspection as a hassle but it's necessary to help prevent these species from taking over our lakes. Quagga-Zebra Mussels are filter feeders that reproduce at alarming rates once they are introduced to a body of water. If they were allowed to take over a lake they would filter out all the suspended particulate, zooplankton, and phytoplankton in a body of water leaving smaller baitfish without a food source in turn leaving ...
