It is with much sadness and sorrow that we speak of the passing of Ty Jones. The world has lost a tremendous young man. Ty was so vibrant, so loving and caring. Ty was just nineteen when he was called home on December 18th. He leaves his heartbroken family and a multitude of devoted friends to cherish his memory. Although only on this earth for a short time, Ty's legacy and laughter will live on in all those who loved him so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ty's family and friends at this very sad time.

Every resident in our Valley Home, Knights Ferry, Oakdale and surrounding area, please be sure to stay updated on the issues surrounding the dismissal of our Fire Chief Rick Weigele. A few years ago our Oakdale Rural Fire District became part of the Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District. At the time the thought was that combining resources and sharing one Chief would be much better economically for our fire district. This past week after two separate hastily called special board meetings SCFPD dismissed our Fire Chief. We all need to be aware of very important issues within our Fire District ...
