ID=22624293

STOCKTON - Stockton Chief of Police Eric Jones said Friday his department has "a lot of work to do" when it comes to the issue of community relations.

His comments came just days after an anti-police group protested in the streets of Stockton, one of the protesters asked the city council to fire Jones, and a man was killed by police when he refused to drop a hammer and lunged at officers.

Would-be applicants flood SolarCity job meet and greet


STOCKTON - Twice as many job-seekers as expected showed up at a meet-and-greet put on by SolarCity at the University of the Pacific in Stockton Wednesday night, giving hope to job-seekers battered by a still-improving economy.

"I'm a contractor, so it's been close to my heart, this economy crash," unemployed former contractor Brian Brophy, of Lockeford, said.

There was standing room only outside the conference room where SolarCity staff discussed the company and the roughly 100 jobs available, mostly as solar panel installers and sales staff.

The company, hiring for the Stockton and Modesto area, has been on a tear with 8,500 workers in 15 states; it was recently rated as a top employer to work for by Glassdoor.

"I might be in sales, I might be installing. I don't know. Wherever they have a fit for me," an optimistic Brophy said after handing in a resume.

Push to re-open Stockton library branch gaining steam


STOCKTON - Maybe it was the letter to the editor, or the city council appearances Tuesday night, but something is telling the city of Stockton to hold off on selling an old library building.

The Fair Oaks branch of the Stockton Library was closed years ago to save the bankruptcy-bound city money. Then the city did its best to sell the property asking $420,000.

But Bill Maxwell spoke to the council Tuesday, asking the city re-open the facility. Kids in the crowd held up pro-library signs. And Maxwell's wife Wendi has written to the local paper, asking the city reconsider.

On Wednesday, the city decided to put the sale on hold because of public pressure.
