FOR YOUR INFORMATION – Your Oakdale Fire Department

 

 

During these tough economic times public safety has been under the spotlight for quite some time and rightfully so. Any agency that’s responsible for spending taxpayer dollars should be transparent and have the ability to stand behind the decisions they make when it comes to taxpayer’s money. I would like to take a moment to set the record straight as to what exactly your fire department does with reserve firefighters, and the money it has saved the city by operating efficiently while thinking outside the box in the last seven years.

What’s Growin’ On … Busy Season For Stanislaus

Stanislaus County agriculture comes alive in April with almost all perennial crops coming out of winter and spring dormancy. Grapes usually are one of the last to emerge with the green tissue you see bust out and grow with vigor. Soon you will see forage crops being harvested and you can tell by seeing big choppers blowing chopped material into a truck traveling alongside. Most of this will be going to dairy animals for feed. This is the first sign of what will be a long harvest season with our 250 different crops grown in Stanislaus County through the end ...

Practical Money Matters – Prepare Now For Natural Disasters

Natural disasters are inevitable, unpreventable and often come without warning. No part of the world seems to be spared, whether it’s a hurricane, earthquake, tornado, drought or flood. Even though such catastrophes can’t always be predicted, their likely aftermaths often can, including property loss, power or water service disruption, scarcity of food and supplies or overtaxed relief organizations.

For Your Information – Make It A Super (Pet) Sunday

Super Sunday typically equals several hours logged jumping up and down on the couch, shouting at the television, and consuming mass amounts of waistline expanding substances that lead to a serious calorie overdose, all while a befuddled pet looks on. Pets aren’t passing judgment as they watch the party’s outrageous antics. They are simply imploring you with their eyes to take care of their special physical, mental, social and emotional needs, which in turn, will surprisingly help pet parents avoid the dreaded Monday morning, “Big Game” hangover.
