Cal Water’s Annual "Operation Gobble" program helps Stockton needy

Cal Water’s Annual "Operation Gobble" program helps Stockton needy

For the 25th consecutive year, California Water Service Company (Cal Water) donated Thanksgiving turkeys to local needy families through a program called "Operation Gobble."

Since its inception in 1988, the state-wide program has fed hundreds of thousands of needy people. Local legislators participated in the program by recommending charities in their districts that can help with distribution.

This year, Cal Water distributed 800 $15 gift certificates, good for the purchase of a turkey or any turkey product, to local charities. Donating gift certificates rather than frozen turkeys gives additional flexibility to the charities and families that participate in the program. For example, if a family does not wish to prepare a whole turkey, it can purchase ground turkey, turkey breasts, or even turkey bacon. And distributing gift certificates rather than heavy frozen birds eliminates the need for delivery trucks, which is better for the environment.

Stockton's Bear Creek High School paper tops in nation

  Bear Creek High School's newspaper, The Bruin Voice, has been recognized as the best in the nation.

Journalism students and adviser Kathi Duffel traveled to Boston on November 16 to the National High School Journalism Convention, where they won the National Scholastic Press Association's Pacemaker Award for overall excellence.     

The paper was also honored with Best of Show for an issue of The Bruin Voice that reported heavily on how student protests led to a controversial Lodi Unified social media policy to be rescinded.

The Pacemaker is seen by many as the high school equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize.

Co-Opinion Editor Zachary Denney said winning the awards was "beyond words."
