Stockton beefs up police ranks

STOCKTON, CA -  There was good news Thursday for a city facing staggering crime rates and  bankruptcy. 

The Stockton Police Department added four officers to the ranks, and they'll be on the streets in a couple of weeks.  Four more people were hired to become officers.  Their training will last about six months.

William Stage is from Santa Rosa and one of the young men sworn in Thursday.  He is fully aware of the challenges facing his new home.

"Even though the city is having hard times, they'll pass and I'll be here and I want to make what difference I can, one day at a time," said Stage.

The Stockton Police Department has funding to add another 19 officers.  Then at that point, federal funding will kick in, making the city eligible to add 17 more officers.

Kings take second look at Stockton's Nunnally

SACRAMENTO, CA - While the Sacramento Kings held a late pre draft workout with projected first round picks Moe Harkless and Arnett Moultrie, Stockton native James Nunnally was given another opportunity to showcase his talents.

Nunnally, who attended Weston Ranch High School before playing at U.C. Santa Barbara admitted he brought a different approach to his second workout. He's also worked out for the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors.

As a senior, Nunnally averaged 16 points, on 47 percent shooting and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Nunnally has remained in Sacramento while playing in the Sacramento Pro Developmental league at Rancho Cordova's Capital Christian High School. He is also working with local basketball guru Guss Armstead.

Sacramento currently owns the fifth pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, and trade winds swirling around Sacramento, Harkless and Moultrie certainly aren't projected to go that high.

Bankruptcy decision looms for Stockton next week

FRESNO -- Stockton in California's Central Valley is facing a moment of decision on whether to become the biggest American city to file for bankruptcy, as the deadline for talks with creditors approaches late Monday.

City Manager Bob Deis says officials are still hoping to reach a deal that would restructure millions of dollars of debt under a new state mediation law designed to help municipalities avoid bankruptcy.

Meantime, the Stockton City Council is scheduled to decide Tuesday whether to adopt a special budget in case of a bankruptcy declaration.

Deis says Stockton's lawyers could file for Chapter 9 protection in court as early as Wednesday.

Stockton's property taxes and other revenues have significantly declined in recent years, while expensive investments and generous retiree benefits have drained city coffers.
