CSU-Stanislaus renews commitment to Stockton Center

CSU-Stanislaus renews commitment to Stockton Center

The satellite campus, or Stockton Center, of CSU-Stanislaus is back in action after a series of budget cuts beginning in 2006 that left the center without a dean or funds for classroom repairs.

"We want it to be known that we are here to stay, have received funding and are developing programs," said Dr. Ashour Badal, Interim Dean of the CSU-Stanislaus Stockton Center, last night at an open house.

About 40 people gathered to hear Dr. Badal recognize faculty and department heads for their hard work in keeping the Center open during the lean times. He also recognized Kevin Huber and Dan Keyser of The Grupe Company  for their assistance with infrastructure improvements including a state-of-the-art classroom.

Manning makes history as Broncos rout Ravens, Stockton's Thomas also makes splash in debut

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Peyton Manning put on a performance for the ages, and the Denver Broncos exacted their revenge for last year's heart- breaking loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.

Manning became the sixth player in NFL history to throw for seven touchdowns in a single game, as the Broncos spoiled the start of the reigning Super Bowl champion Ravens' title defense with a resounding 49-27 triumph Thursday in the season-opener for both teams at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Five of Manning's touchdown tosses came in the second half, as Denver turned a three-point halftime deficit into a comfortable 25-point cushion by scoring 28 straight points to start the second half.

Manning finished 27-of-42 passing for 462 yards and joined Y.A. Tittle, Joe Kapp, George Blanda, Sid Luckman and Adrian Burk as the only players in NFL history to throw for seven scores in a game.

Neighbor credited with saving man's life

Witnesses credited a courageous neighbor with saving the life of an 80-year-old Stockton, CA man who was attacked by a dog Thursday outside his home in a gated neighborhood.

According to witnesses, the victim was walking back to his house on Pine Valley Circle after picking up his mail shortly after 2 p.m. when he was attacked by one of two boxers that were running loose in the street. The victim was already bleeding badly from both arms when neighbor Linda Walker ran down her driveway wielding a broom.

"The male dog was on top of him, and I just saw blood everywhere," Walker said. "If I hadn't been there with that broom, he would have bled to death in the street."

Neighbor Elizabeth Griego said she believes Walker saved the victim's life.

"That dog was all over him," Griego said. "If (Walker) had not come out, it could have been horrible. The bites were very deep."
