Stockton bankruptcy saga drawing to an end

Stockton bankruptcy saga drawing to an end

The Stockton bankruptcy case appears to be near its end. Chief Judge Christopher M. Klein of the Unites States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California denied a stay in Stockton’s long-running saga, Tuesday. The decision clears the way for the city to exit the bankruptcy process that it began two years ago.

Franklin High Yield Tax-Free Income Fund was the lone holdout creditor fighting the city’s reorganization plan. The company appealed the judge’s decision to approve the city’s plan in November and sought a stay as the appeal winds its way through the courts.

Once the judge signs the order, an automatic stay will be in place for 14 days, after which the city’s plan can go into effect... Read More

Students Lobby Delta College Foundation for Field Trip Funding

Students Lobby Delta College Foundation for Field Trip Funding

Seeing is believing…

Such was the case for 40 Delta College MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Achievement) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) students. Through the combined efforts of Delta’s computer science faculty, STEM Academy, and Delta College MESA, a magical mystery tour to Microsoft and Google’s Mountain View campuses took place during the fall semester.

No doubt about it, a field trip to these sometimes mysterious, stealthy industry goliaths was intriguing. “The field trip created a ‘Buzz’ across campus,” said tour coordinator and Delta College MESA director, Cassandra Hernandez-Vives. “Everybody wanted to go, but we only had a limited number of slots.” That number was eventually “whittled down” to 40 computer science, engineering, math students, coders, and some gamers.
