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."

Lincoln Trojans begin season with chip on shoulder

STOCKTON - The Lincoln Trojans high school football team enters the 2013 season with a huge chip on thier shoulder.

Last season, the Trojans were considered a preseason favorite led by running back Justin Davis who went to USC and quarterback Zack Greenlee who now attends Fresno State. But this year, without any household named stars, the Trojans are flying under the radar to begin this season.

"I'm really excited to prove everyone wrong and how we are not going to be good because we lost a couple of dynamic players." said senior wide receiver Stephen Robinson. "

"I think everyone is looking at the situation as an opportunity to make a name for themselves," added senior defensive end Cyrus Boone. "We don't have any big names this year, but we are looking to use that to our advantage."

Slated to roll out this month, Come Back Kids — a new charter school run by the Stanislaus County Office of Education — was specifically designed to address the academic needs of students 16 through 23 who are at risk of not completing high school or who have already dropped out.

Enterprise zones eliminated - now what?

With a vote of 55-16 the California Assembly eliminated one of the few powerful incentives Central Valley cities and counties have to attract businesses and create jobs. Assembly Bill 93 passed the Assembly June 27 after the Senate approved it earlier that week, effectively eliminating enterprise zones.

“This certainly doesn’t help us,” said San Joaquin Partnership President Mike Ammann. “The San Joaquin Partnership has always supported the enterprise zone to attract warehouse operations.” Now Ammann said he will use new state incentives to promote manufacturing opportunities in San Joaquin County.
