Promise Keepers returns to Stockton

Promise Keepers returns to Stockton

Visit Stockton has announced the return of Promise Keepers to Stockton, May 15-16, 2015 at the Stockton Arena. Promise Keepers, a Christ-centered organization dedicated to introducing men to Jesus Christ, was last in Stockton in 1999. The event, the only one scheduled in California for 2015, is expected to bring over 5,000 men from all reaches of the west to Downtown Stockton. Promise Keepers has directly reached more than 6 million men through men's conferences - including an assembly of 1.4 million men on the United States National Mall in Washington D.C., on October 4, 1997 - and the number continues to grow each year. Through over 200 stadium, arena, and church events since its founding in 1999, Promise Keepers has encouraged men to be transformed and to live godly lives. Visit Stockton worked closely with SMG and the Stockton Leadership Foundation to successfully bring this event to Stockton. For more information and tickets visit promisekeepers.org.

Credit rating agencies give Delta College outstanding marks for 2014

Credit rating agencies give Delta College outstanding marks for 2014

Credit rating agencies Moody's, Standard & Poor's, and Fitch Ratings have given San Joaquin Delta College outstanding credit ratings for the existing $250 million Measure L General Obligation Bond, passed in 2004.

Bond credit ratings are the equivalent of an individual's credit score and are designed to gauge the risk a bondholder will receive on their investment. In preparation for the District's Series 2014C $35 million bond issuance, the District's controller and financial adviser undertook surveillance credit reviews from the three major ratings agencies.

All three agencies affirmed the District's current excellent bond credit ratings. These credit ratings determine the costs the District will pay to borrow funds, and its ability to retain favorable debt structuring.

West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.
