FYI - Limit Predation Saves Salmon

"One fish. Two fish … Some are red. And some are blue. Some are old. And some are new. Some are sad. And some are glad. And some are very, very bad." These lines from a famous Dr. Seuss book also symbolize the current imbalance of native Chinook salmon to non-native predator fish in the Delta waterways.

Cop Corner

The loquacious Mark Twain once wrote, "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change." After several dry years we're finally getting some much needed rain. This is great for our area reservoirs and farms but not so great for our area roads.

Superintendent’s Spotlight - What Is Best?

I recently picked up a Bay Area newspaper, and the headline shouted: "Layoffs Despite Recovery." An uneasy smile crossed my face as I realized we have been talking about this in public schools for almost three years now. Although Oakdale has had the benefit of a stable school population with a slight growth and excellent planning, we still will look at major cuts in the next six to 18 months.

Cop Corner

Throughout my years as a police officer, I have dealt with numerous parents who have wondered if their child was using or experimenting with drugs, but were not knowledgeable enough to see the symptoms and find the truth. Many times, I have arrested juveniles for being under the influence, contacted their parents and were immediately faced with the statement, "I had no idea."
