Volunteers Clean Up

The ugly scrawl of profanity, the illegible ramblings of rival gang members in a turf war, the inconsiderate scribbling of someone with nothing better to do - nothing drags a community down faster than the blight of graffiti.

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.

Fire Season - Prolonged Spring Prompts Concerns

There's no doubt the unseasonably cool spring weather coupled with late rains have kept the temperatures in a pleasant zone but not without cost. The rainy season has created an extra heavy fuel load as the official fire season declared by CAL FIRE - albeit delayed - approaches with an estimated late June or early July target. The date is driven by local and state burning conditions and activity.

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."

Service Clubs Make A Difference In Quake Zone

Delta BC Mexico: The largest earthquake in the California Region since the 8+ in 1906 that hit San Francisco did not stop 22 U.S. citizens from going six miles from the epicenter to do their service work through area clubs in April this year. Forty-two miles south of the border the town of Delta had no water and very little electricity, which made doing the medical clinics and work at the local elementary school a challenge. In spite of this, a total of over $92,000 worth of clinics, refurbishing and delivery of materials took place in two days.
