SavetheStan: A Life Or Death Fight

Both the South San Joaquin and the Oakdale Irrigation Districts are in a fight for their lives against the federal government's misguided attempts at helping salmon and steelhead in the South Delta. Our two agencies have filed suit to stop the same government decision that shut the pumps down on the westside of the Central Valley and destroyed much of its agriculture and economy last year. That same decision (known as the Biological Opinion), if not changed, will do the same here on the Stanislaus River; significantly impacting our local communities.

The feds and their state counterparts are focused ...

Superintendent’s Spotlight - People Who Made A Difference

In the field of education as we approach the end of each year, educators evaluate how much growth they have achieved during the year. Those individuals then make a plan and determine what steps need to be taken to make next year even better. This evaluation and renewal process is very healthy and positive. On occasion the plan they select is bittersweet for the people who admire and appreciate them. Every year some great individuals decide that it is time to leave the job that they have dedicated their lives to and choose to retire. This year is no exception ...

Cop Corner - “Pedestrian XING”

Regardless of the time of day that I am on patrol, there is one traffic infraction I am sure to see: pedestrians crossing F Street outside the confines of a clearly marked crosswalk. You've seen it, too. Referred to as "jaywalking," it is clearly unsafe. Everyone has jaywalked at some point in their life. Many think of this as a "victimless" crime. However, in 2009 there were 17 pedestrians injured in traffic accidents in Oakdale, two of which I personally investigated. Just last month, a man lost his life crossing the highway near downtown Oakdale. "Victimless?" I don't ...

Take The Financial Capability ‘Challenge’

In a major crisis, our first impulse is to address people's immediate needs. With the Haiti and Chile earthquakes, that meant providing food and shelter to the victims. In the case of the recent economic recession, the government stepped in by extending unemployment insurance, providing COBRA subsidies and promoting mortgage refinancing guidelines, among many other programs.

Cop Corner – A Matter Of Safety

A number of California newspaper publications recently ran stories about how DUI/drivers' license checkpoints serve to benefit police departments, police officers and tow truck companies. These stories appear to be based on a study conducted by an investigative news entity that calls itself "California Watch." The author suggests that, because there has been an increasing trend in the use of DUI/drivers' license checkpoints and a corresponding increase in the number of vehicles impounded, local governments are using the fines as a means to make up for budget shortfalls. The report implies that checkpoints are cash cows for overtime-hungry ...

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.
