Community: AB 420 deserves serious consideration

As Sheriff of Stanislaus County, I appreciate the importance of educating our young people, so that they're prepared to succeed rather than turn to a life of crime, gangs and addiction. I find it troubling how many local youth - approximately one out of every four - are not graduating from high school. When these students do not graduate, they're far more likely to end up becoming the victim or perpetrator of crime. Research confirms what we've seen first-hand: high school dropouts are eight times more likely than graduates to end up behind bars. If we could raise graduation ...

Cad of San Diego: Is he serial sexual harasser?

A scary new doc about how privacy died

Whatever happened to the Fourth Amendment? You know, that bulwark of our right to privacy? Its protections against government intrusion and coercion aren't exactly dead - not yet - but they're going fast. Because we can't seem to stop giving them away.

Want a job? Don’t skip the science

College has gotten expensive. Really expensive. Last week, aspiring students heard the fantastic news that Congress failed to extend discounted rates on subsidized student loans making loans either 1.) impossible to get without having to sell your leg and someone's kidney to pay for or 2.) just a bad idea.

The ultimate gathering place

Editor's note: I started to write a column this week about the impact the Stanislaus County Fair makes in the community. But when I read through my previous columns, I decided that what I really wanted to say, I already said. I hope you don't mind a rerun this week. I truly feel the sentiment is worth repeating.

Braving the heat to make children safer

It's safe to say that the triteness of the phrase "Where there's a will, there's a way" does nothing to decrease its validity. It certainly is a timeless truth that whenever you truly believe in something, you're sure to find a way to achieve it.

Spy, whistle-blower, hero — and celebrity

"Bling Ring" is a hot new movie about celebrity in our time, all flash and bang, set in Hollywood to rework the mangled cliche that almost anybody can get 15 minutes of fame if they're light enough to float, perverse, and (if female) pretty and skinny enough. There's a need to know the right labels, ZIP codes, trends and fashions, and you have to know how to appeal to ignorant adolescents who think they know more than they do. (That's quite a long list.)

We need more models like the Patterson Logistics Training Center

A good friend of mine, Phil Alfano, Superintendent of Patterson Schools, has created an exceptional collaborative model between education, business, economic development and government to prepare young people for jobs in the growing logistics industry in Patterson. This past week a group of educators and businesspeople traveled with Phil to Southern California to check out the Norco Logistics Center, a similar collaborative in Riverside County. On the way back to Stanislaus County, Alfano spoke to a group in Kern County to share his experiences building the coalition in Patterson. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Phil is working directly ...
