water hyacinth in stockton getting attention


STOCKTON - Thick, green water hyacinth still covers much of Stockton's waterfront, but there's encouraging news that the problem is being tackled.

First, the state deputy director of the Division of Boating and Waterways met with Mayor Anthony Silva to brainstorm on removal ideas.

"There are options being discussed, perhaps getting tug boats and pushing the mass all together, so external excavation units will pull it up at a much faster pace than aquatic harvesting," Silva said.

At the expense of the Port of Stockton, harvesting equipment has been brought in to clean the port region so ships can move in and out. Now the harvesters are moving toward the downtown supply of hyacinth.

"The port is saying, 'Hey Rick (Hatton of Aquatic Harvesting), can you clean it up?' Let's take care of Stockton. It's heartwarming," Hatton said.

STOCKTON - Second graders at John Marshall Elementary School in Stockton can now add songwriting to their list of accomplishments this school year.

Those kids, and students at Vinewood Elementary School in Lodi, got writing assistance the past couple of weeks from Paul Reisler, who wrote and recorded folk music for years before turning his attention to teaching children.

state claims it's doing everything possible on water hyacinth


ID=18037685

STOCKTON - Stockton residents and delta boaters hoping to hear California will step up water hyacinth removal are likely to be disappointed at the following statement:

"At this point, we're doing everything within our resources to solve the problem," Chris Conlin, Director of the Division of Boating and Waterways, said.

Conlin said he was in Stockton last week to see the situation firsthand, noting "it's a big problem." But he also said that between budgeted spraying and possible (water hyacinth) removal after November, the state is tackling the delta plant problem as well as it can.

University of the Pacific launches Bay Area's first music therapy program

Until now, becoming a music therapist in California has meant competing for limited seats each year in music therapy programs at University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus or Cal State Northridge, the only two institutions statewide that have been accredited by the American Music Therapy Association.

But starting next fall, Pacific will launch the Bay Area’s first music therapy program at the university’s new state-of-the-art San Francisco campus at Fifth and Mission. Applications are being accepted now for the Music Therapy Equivalency Program.
