BROKEN TOYS-30 Years in the Making Live at the Gallo Center July 18th

BROKEN TOYS-30 Years in the Making Live at the Gallo Center July 18th

     Moving to a town that only had 8 exits off the Freeway(what kind of cultural wasteland was my parents moving us to) was a pretty big shock for a teenager from LA(and what classic 80 movie plots seemed to be all about.) What did this "hick town" have to offer to a Modernist Punk from the "Big City." I remember the first High School dance I attended the DJ had a list of bands not to play, no Bauhaus, no Cure, no Blondie, not even the B-52's. I noticed in a box a 7" a band that wasn't on the list The Dead Kennedys so I had him play Holiday in Cambodia(a small win for my rebellious soul.)  I was a stranger in a strange land being assaulted by Jocks and Cowboys for the clothes on my back and the way I wore my hair.

Donation website has new fund for Stockton mayor

STOCKTON - The website "gofundme.com" has a spot for donations that would benefit Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva.

The fund was created after the Stockton City Council voted this week to approve a salary commission recommendation that the mayor's salary be cut by more than $32,000.

The couple starting the fund chooses to remain anonymous, but the leading contributor was happy to explain his participation.

"It's embarrassing to be part of a community that's bullying the mayor. I don't think anyone agrees they'd take a one-third pay cut from a job. We all complain when we get our check and the IRS has taken out a third," Ron Felton said. He's contributed $200 to the Silva fund.

Friday afternoon, the fund was still at $280 donated. The organizer stated a fund goal of $35,000.
