Adult school reaches out to community leaders

Turlockers who drive down Colorado Avenue on a daily basis probably do not even notice the Community Continuum College. The building sits so far back on the property that, despite large letters on the front of the building, it is easy to miss from the street. The physical isolation of the building reflects the relative obscurity of the school in the Turlock community.

PRESCHOOL PARADISE

Campers at the Turlock Nursery School enjoyed a break from the summer heat this week with a "water fun" themed week of day camp. Kids slid down the zip-line in the back yard of the Turlock Nursery School on Friday while others painted sea-themed decorations during the arts and crafts portion of the camp. This week's theme allowed kids to play outside in the pool. Next week's theme is "rescue heroes," and campers will be walking to the fire station and exploring rescue vehicles. There are still openings for the third and fourth sessions of the summer camp ...

COMMUNITY: TWILIGHT MANIA

Turlock tween Haley Brock is one of the many young readers across the country who have fallen in love with the story of Edward and Bella as told in Stephenie Meyer's best-seller, "Twilight." When the movie version of the book came out, Haley's fascination with the vampire love story grew. So it was no surprise that when her family took a recent 10-day trip to Oregon, Haley's first thought was how close they were to the northwest town "Twilight" was based on - and partially filmed in - Forks, Wash.
