McGeorge students make law – and history

McGeorge students make law – and history

Revenge porn victims can get offensive material taken off the Internet using a pseudonym. Child care centers can consider job applicants' arrest warrants in hiring decisions. Prisoners can seek a new trial if the scientific evidence that convicted them is later discredited. And police will get training to recognize signs of elder abuse.

Californians won these new rights and protections thanks to four bills developed by students at Pacific McGeorge School of Law and signed into law by Gov. Brown.  

"It is rewarding to have our students not only studying the law on the books in the nation's most important state capital, but also helping to put those laws on the books," said Francis J. Mootz III, dean and professor of law at McGeorge.

Optimistic caltrans trains chain installers for winter


STOCKTON - It seemed odd, on a warm day with temperatures in the 70s, but Caltrans workers in Angels Camp were determined to make sure Herb Huber knew how to install tire chains for snowy weather.

After paying his $200 permit fee, Huber was tested inside on chain installer regulations, then tested outside where he put chains on two different vehicles.

The Caltrans region in Calaveras County issues 17 permits each year to installers, and if snowy weather ever arrives with any sort of regularity, guys like Huber will be pleased.

"You can (wait) there for three hours, then the chain control goes up and you make 100 bucks in 10 minutes," Huber said. He is in his 60s and lists lifeguard as one of his other occupations.

Caltrans officials said it's important installers be properly trained because of what can go wrong if chains are incorrectly installed.

Lodi Chamber unveils Economic Vision for 2020

Lodi Chamber unveils Economic Vision for 2020

What are the "must haves" for Lodi's future? How attractive is it today? and what needs to be done to attract future employers? Those are just a few of the challenges the Lodi District Chamber of Commerce tackled in its recently released report, Vision 2020, a combined volunteer vision of what they would like to see the City of Lodi "Be like, look like and work like" in the year 2020.

Chamber President & CEO Pat Patrick presented the report to the San Joaquin Partnership Board of Directors at its regular monthly meeting on October 23rd. Patrick said their research unveiled that economic development in neighboring cities such as Elk Grove, Tracy and Manteca was far ahead of Lodi's, which only has 12 vacant industrial parcels east of Highway 99. He said according to a recent HUD report Lodi is the slowest growing city in the Valley and that equals less tax dollars.

Kashkari campaigns in Stockton with election closing in


STOCKTON - Republican gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari campaigned in Stockton Wednesday, promising supporters the race can be won.

"We can win this election and break the super majority (in Sacramento)," Kashkari said to a group at Brookside Country Club.

Even though Kashkari's campaign trails Gov. Jerry Brown by about 15 points, he said he overcame a similar deficit leading up to the party nomination.

"I was way behind. Pundits said it was over," Kashkari said. "We ran TV ads, and people paid attention and we got through."

Kashkari received criticism a recent TV ad, which portrayed a young boy in danger of drowning before Kashkari rescues him from the water. The candidate isn't apologizing for any insensitivity in that message.
