Superintendent’s Spotlight

I had the opportunity to meet with the Board of Directors of the Oakdale Sports Boosters on Sept. 8 to ask for their help with funding transportation for our Oakdale athletes. The meeting was very cordial and it was very apparent why this group of dedicated citizens was in attendance.

A Water War Coming

Early in June the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) issued a Biological Opinion (BO) on the impacts of the State Water Project and Federal Water Project (Projects) on endangered salmon and steelhead fish populations. Both Projects pump water out of the Delta to send to the South part of the State and it is these actions that the BO addressed.

Cruz’n w/Jake-Closing The Book

It was the same old speech I'd heard a thousand times before. Something positive and uplifting, but nothing really authentic or new. So instead of listening to the speaker, I was reading some sort of graduation guideline handout and daydreaming about something more interesting.
