Sheriff deputy's loaded service weapon stolen


A loaded service firearm was stolen from an off-duty sheriff's deputy in north Stockton Wednesday morning.

The San Joaquin County sheriff's deputy had stopped at a Quik Stop convenience story on the 3500 block of West Hammer Lane about 6:30 a.m., according to Stockton police. Police spokesperson Officer Joe Silva said the deputy left the weapon in a backpack in his unlocked vehicle. The deputy saw a man and a woman take the backpack and ran out of the store to confront them. The pair were in their vehicle at that point and starting to drive off when the deputy saw one of the thieves reach into the backpack.

Silva said the deputy thought the thief was possibly reaching for the loaded gun so he backed off.

Women a growing force among farmers, ranchers

Women a growing force among farmers, ranchers

OAKDALE — For Mary Ann Henriquez the road to farming began in grade school with 4-H and FFA. But it was as a student at Modesto Junior College that she committed to it as a profession.

“My brother took over dad’s dairy operation and because I didn’t want to see the beef cows go, I got a loan – which wasn’t easy – and bought them,” Henriquez remembered. “I’ve been running cattle since 1987: Holstein steers, cows, calves, stockers and Holstein feeders.”

How to use social media to manage your brand

How to use social media to manage your brand

MODESTO — Social Media is no longer a tool of the future; it’s the here and now. In fact, Adrenna Alkhas, president of the Central Valley Public Relations Organization, says social media is today’s biggest brand management trend.

The most important part of brand management is “consistency in your messaging,” Alkhas said. Everything a company puts out should display the same message. From color schemes, to taglines, to what platforms you use to engage your audience, everything should be synonymous with your message.

STOCKTON — The Stockton Symphony begins its 88th season Sept. 13 with its performance in collaboration with  Cirque de la Symphonie, which returns for two new performances at Atherton Auditorium on the San Joaquin Delta College campus. The performance combines cirque acrobatics with live orchestra music and proved popular with audiences two years ago.

In addition to its musical contribution to Stockton’s cultural landscape, the symphony helps educate young people in San Joaquin County about music through its two programs, the Steppin’ Out concerts and  Harmony Stockton.

Should you learn to code?

Should you learn to code?

The explosion in web, mobile applications and smart technology has led to an increased interest in computer programming. That interest has prompted many people to ask whether coding is a skill everyone should learn, just like reading or writing.

Former Microsoft executive, Hadi Partovi, is promoting programming as a component of core education, like science and math. He said schools in most states treat computer science as an elective rather than something everyone should learn.
